Of the many innovations Quantum of the Seas is about to introduce, there is none more interesting than a “bionic bartender.” I have read a lot of fretting online about the company trying to replace bartenders, but I don’t think that’s the case at all. I really think this is about novelty and marketing….marketing of the cruise industry’s most advanced ship. Something tells me we won’t be seeing “bionic” bartenders pouring every single libation onboard a cruise ship anytime soon.

In little more than a month, I’ll be setting sail aboard Quantum of the Seas. I’ll be sure to say hello to the “bionic bartender.”
