Robot Bartenders : New giant cruise ship to set sail on maiden voyage

Quantum of the Seas claims to be the first-ever ‘smart ship’ with innovative technology like robotic bartenders making it the most technologically advanced cruise ship in the world.

Guests can place drinks orders via tablets and then watch as robotic bartenders mix their cocktails. Each robot can produce one drink per minute and up to 1,000 drinks per day, according to Royal Caribbean.

The bionic bar is just one of many high-tech features of Quantum of the Seas, which claims to be the most technologically advanced cruise ship in the world.

Upon boarding the vessel, guests are issued with RFID wristbands, allowing them to navigate the ship, make onboard purchases and unlock their rooms with a simple tap.

Every crew member on board Quantum of the Seas carries a tablet with custom apps to keep better track of guests’ tastes and preferences. Whether a guest prefers gluten-free dining, early show seating, or shiatsu massage, these apps help crew members anticipate their needs.

Consumer-facing mobile apps also help to put travellers in charge of their cruise choices. Before their holiday even begins, guests can research and book dinner reservations, shore excursions and spa appointments using the Cruise Planner app.
