Revamped Royal Caribbean International ship Splendour of the Seas will provide passengers with the use of iPads in every cabin.
The iPads will be available from mid-February before being extended to all of the line’s Vision-class ships when each is overhauled over the next two years.
Splendour of the Seas, which emerges from dry dock on Friday (November 25), will see cabins refurbished to include flat screen televisions and new bathrooms.
Hotel operations senior vice president Lisa Bauer said: “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.”
New dining options have been introduced onto the 15-year-old vessel as part of the revitalisation, including an Asian restaurant, steakhouse, hotdog counter, deli-style restaurant and a chef’s table.
The 1,804-passenger ship is due to sail from Lisbon on Friday to its seasonal winter homeport of Sao Paulo (Santos) in Brazil.
