Royal Caribbean cruise planning with Google Maps

Royal Caribbean cruise planning with Google Maps

Royal Caribbean loves to offer a first in the cruise industry, and we think they have just succeeded with their latest announcement. RCI announced yesterday that they have started to work with the Google Maps team and its Street View service, allowing you to see around Allure of the Seas..

By using this technology you will be able to do some cruise planning of your own by using Street View, which will come in handy seeing as though how big Allure of the Seas is.

All it takes is a few clicks and you will be exploring the largest cruise ship in the world, where you will be able to take in areas such as the promenade, restaurants, lounges and so much more.

You can check out the Google Street View technology onboard 
Allure of the Seas HERE. You can also use Google Search or Google Maps in order to explore this great ship.

According to Royal Caribbean more than 20,000 images were taken of Allure of the Seas, which took more than 60 hours in all to complete over eight days. What is more impressive is that a normal DSLR camera was used and not the usual camera used by Google.

We hope that this is the start and that RCI will do this for all of their ships, and that other cruise ship companies do the same thing, as it gives you a far better idea of the ship you are about to cruise on.
