Royal Caribbean is inviting select guests to try out a new way to board the ship that aims to improve the embarkation process.
Royal Caribbean Blog reader, Steve, shared with us an email sent with the invitation to try the expedited check-in for an upcoming sailing on Allure of the Seas.
Guests simply need to download the new Royal Caribbean smart phone app and then check-in on the mobile app prior to the cruise.
Once the mobile check-in is complete, guests might see an Expedited Arrival choice on their mobile boarding pass, which means they have been selected to participate in our boarding trial.
Upon arrival at the cruise terminal, there will be an Expedited Arrival lane for these guests, who may present their mobile boarding pass.
Since this is a test, the exact process may change. This may be a precursor to the "frictionless" check-in Royal Caribbean announced late last year.
