Default Quantum/Anthem of the Seas

The more I read about these ships the more I'm beginning to like them. When they were first announced I said no big deal. But Royal keeps adding more neat things to the ship.
1. State of the art wifi
2. Bracelet with chip built in to access room and pay for drinks
3. Ongoing shows all over the ship. Daytime shows plus a variety of nighttime shows
4. Bumper cars turns into dance floor at night
Plus a lot more neat resturants.

**** who's going and who's getting excited bout these ships?

I am booked for Anthem of the Seas in July 2015 from Southampton for 14 days doing Italy, Spain, France, and Portugal
and then booked again for Anthem with friends in October 2015 for 3 days from Southampton doing Bruges and Paris.
The second trip is a key event. This gives me 3 Crown and Anchor points that will take me to the next tier, ready for the next years big cruise. Also it is my 40th Birthday and my friends 40th Wedding Anniversary, so one big cake with a 40 on it and we can share.

Also so looking forward to the Anthem. I am a big gadget geek and am loving all his "Smart" technology being used for practical reasons (luggage RFID tags) and entertainment (Robo screens).

I am sure that the entertainment will be great.


On RCL ships it always is.

From what I've been reading Royal is pulling out all the stops to distance themselves from other cruise lines. Technology is king. I bet they start putting tech stuff into their onboard app. Apple's new iphone 6 has apple pay and I bet Royal Caribbean will have some sort of similar pay system on their new ships. The shows on their web site look pretty cool. Anyway. Thanks for chatting

TimmyK, always a pleasure chatting to you.
With Apple's "new" pay system, it uses NFC technology which has been available on android for years and years. Unlike Android, Apple will only allow you to pay with this tech, whereas Android will allow you to share data and setup settings with it, i.e. a NFC Tag in your car, so you tap it with your phone and your phone goes into driving mode, switches on bluetooth and pairs with the car.
In the UK, we have multiple uses for NFC. For Example, on our Trains, when you are about to get off, by the door, is a NFC tag. You put your phone on it and then you get offers and discounts on things in the area where you just got off.
Royal Caribbean will be using this same tech in their wristband (The WOW Band) to open your cabin door, buy drinks and services with and find where you are on board from the interactive notice boards.
