Royal Caribbean mixes innovative iPhone app with on-board Wi-Fi
Once installed on your phone, you pay $17.50 for the duration of the cruise, to get access to stateroom calling, online restaurant and spa reservations, guest locator, daily schedule and best of all - a kid tracker.
Children can wear a special tracking wristband, and parents can use their phone to track exactly where on the ship their kids are.
Additional features allow Royal Connect users to call or text each other without having to hunt for a shipboard phone.
Of course, as technology like this evolves, we become less "unconnected" on vacation, though I do think larger families can really benefit from the free phone-to-phone service, without having to pay insane roaming charges.
The service is currently only available on the massive Oasis of the Seas.
