Support Skift’s Independent Journalism

Did you know? Skift has newsrooms in New York and London and full-time editors in Singapore, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, too.

Royal Caribbean International knew its ship had to be designed it in a way that its size didn’t overwhelm passengers and staffers, and decided early on that IT would play a big part in addressing this challenge…

It is critical to help passengers find their way around this layout, so the ship has digital, interactive signs that people can use to access maps, get directions, see scheduled activities and even check in real-time the occupancy level of restaurants. The more than 300 touchscreen devices are the size of flat-screen televisions and are mounted on walls on the ship’s corridors.
