Cruising isn't typically associated with the high tech, but Royal Caribbean is changing that with its newest ship, Quantum of the Seas.

In this episode of CNET Update, we take a quick tour of high-tech highlights. Technology is blended into on-board entertainment with choreographed Robo-Screen shows and robotic bartenders. Room keys have been replaced with smart bracelets. And everyone can stay connected to their smartphone at sea with broadband sold at reasonable daily rates.
