Hi. I’m Jeffrey Solomon, and I am a geek.
Welcome to the first installment of Cruise Ship Tech, a feature that will appear regularly on this blog, highlighting technologies on ships that help enhance your Cruise Experience. In this edition, it’s HUGE TABLETS ON WALLS…IN A SHIP! This is how I envision heaven…computers and cruise ships!
RCCI’s Wayfinders are interactive signage device systems that have won multiple awards for technology excellence. Passengers, at the touch of their fingertips, can be routed to onboard activities (in real time), are given customized ship directions and can even see which restaurants are open and serving! Gone are the days of remembering that darn, little, foldable ship’s map. I’m still trying to close one from four years ago!
Wayfinders are strategically located near main entryways and elevator bays. Fear not, the ships still contain the dissection maps we’ve all grown to know and love. But, once you’ve experienced the Wayfinders system, you’ll wonder why every ship on every line doesn’t rush to install something similar. I want one in the house, so I’ll know when dinner is ready, where the dogs are hiding in the backyard and when the mail is in the box.
Check out which ships in the RCCI fleet have gone through their revitalizations, which include the digital signage system. CLICK HERE!
