Royal Caribbean Launches High-Tech New Cruise Ship

Posted on Wednesday, February 1st, 2017 at 8:53 pm    

Royal Caribbean recently unveiled the newest addition to its Oasis Class fleet: the Harmony of the Seas. The ship spans 10 stories and contains seven unique neighborhoods for passengers to explore. The idea behind the ship’s sprawling design is to avoid guests congregating in a single area. The Harmony contains an array of attractions, from a carnival-themed Boardwalk with a carousel to a Central Park area with a full range of specialty restaurants. With seven different areas embodying seven different themes, guests feel more compelled to move around.

This idea was put to the test on the ship’s preview trip. The ship was at capacity, but still many guests were surprised to learn that more than 6,000 other passengers accompanied them onboard. The ship attracts this number by trying to provide something for everyone. Zip-lining and a trip down the multilevel slide might appeal to more adventurous-minded passengers, while seeing one of the many new theatrical productions may appeal to others. Harmony showcases a variety of entertainment options, including a comedy show, an ice skating show, an acrobat and diving show, and an adaptation of “Grease” that blends together the Broadway musical and the 1978 movie.

One of the ship’s main selling points is the unique bar area that seems straight out of a science fiction movie. Robotic bartenders take orders form tablets placed around the bar. They then mix drinks from a full range of bottles that hang from the bar’s celling. The ship also features WOWbands, wristbands created to lessen the need for room keys. The bands come in a range of colors and can complete any key card task short of turning on the lights in your cabin.

The increased automation onboard the Harmony is designed to match the utmost ease of use that guests have become accustomed to. With new technologies such as these also comes new problems. With fewer human staff onboard to resolve these issues, the chance of misconduct and injury can also increase.
