Mobile gets seaworthy as Oasis of the Seas uses iPhones for Royal Connect
The USA Today Cruise Log reports that Royal Caribbean’s new 5,400-passenger Oasis of the Seas will feature iPhone rentals, which will enable cruisers to keep in touch with one another onboard and to track their wandering kids.
Passengers will be able to rent these Royal Connect-branded phones, which facilitate onboard calling and texting, for $17.50 each starting in January, and about 800 of them will be available for rental in the initial rollout on the new ship.
Such a system is said to be a cruise industry first. So is the Oasis of the Seas, which is the largest passenger ship in the world.
