“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 spokeswoman Lisa Bauer.
While The Splendour may be the first ship to get this high tech enhancement, Royal Caribbean plans to add iPads in all of the Vision-class ships over the next two years.READ MORE: South Florida Prepping For Approval Of COVID Vaccine For Kids 5 To 11
The iPads, which will feature English and Portuguese, will allow guests to access all of their information not only from the comfort of their staterooms, but through throughout the ship thanks to new WiFi being installed.
In addition to the iPads, when The Splendour emerges from dry dock on Nov. 25, 2011, it will also have new stateroom amenities such as flat screen televisions, new bathrooms and completely remodeled interiors.MORE NEWS: Centner Academy Reverses Course On 30-Day Quarantine For Vaccinated Students
