Royal Caribbean announced earlier this week that they’ll be adding iPads in every stateroom aboard their newly refurbished Splendour of the Seas, beginning mid-Febuary 2012. The iPad’s will allow passengers to access the daily activities in the Cruise Compass, create personal itineraries, check their on-board spending account, order room service, view dining menus, access the web, and watch movies on-demand.
“Based on consumer research, we added the iPads to greatly enhance guest communication, interactivity and to continue to offer industry leading technology that helps enhance the guest experience,” said Lisa Bauer, senior vice president, Hotel Operations, Royal Caribbean International. “This is just one of the many exciting ways that Royal Caribbean continues to provide our guests with the ultimate cruise experience.”
Along with the iPad addition the ship also received 124 new balcony staterooms and dining enhancements.
Splendour of the Seas is currently sailing a trans-Atlantic voyage from Lisbon, Portugal to her seasonal homeport of Sao Paulo (Santos), Brazil.
