The 4,180-passenger Quantum debuts in November, sailing mostly around China, while Anthem is due to make its maiden voyage next year. Guests will be able to place orders via tablets and then marvel at the ships’ robotic bartenders as they mix the ordered cocktails.
The smart experience continues with the agile array of six Roboscreens at the Two70° venue, which display scenes while soaring above guests, moving in a variety of patterns and occasionally uniting as one.
Every room has USB charging ports (hey, it's the little things), and an 80-inch "virtual balcony" that lets you see the view even if you don't have one. The crew has tablets and apps specifically designed for this ship, and even the ship itself is designed to more efficiently use power and lighting
There is also the Vistarama, with its floor-to-ceiling glass walls that transform into an ambient surface, projecting a variety of visuals.
The robotic innovations are part of the luxury cruise firm’s “SMART” modernisation effort, which includes smartphone check-in and the SMART Concierge service, which offers guests tech wristbands. The RFID WOWband bracelets allow users to make on-board purchases, serve as the room key and navigate the ship with greater ease.

“Cruise vacations have a romantic past – but they also have a lively, adventurous, state-of-the-art future,” said Richard D. Fain, chairman and CEO, Royal Caribbean Cruises.
“We were determined to take the best advances in modern technology, turn them into shipboard WOWs, and take the frustration out of the vacation. This ship’s combination of ease and flexibility would make a yoga instructor proud.”
