Guests can upload their photo IDs at home, and they will be issued digital boarding documents. And they can even track their suitcases on their mobile phones as an RFID device on their suitcase that allows them to know exactly where their bags have reached after dropping off at kerb side on embarking, as well in the reverse on disembarking.

The guest can opt to wear a simple RFID WOW wrist band and navigate through the ship, make on board purchases as also use it as a room key and a whole lot more.
