Bionic Bartenders Set Sail Aboard Quantum of the Seas

Royal Caribbean's newest ship Quantum of the Seas is about to make her appearance here in the U.S. with one of the most intriguing elements, the Bionic Bar. While the innovative new bar won't serve every cocktail you can think of, its robotic bartenders have the ability to create a wide variety of favorite libations and entertain patrons while doing so. Guests will place their drink orders via tablets by selecting the ingredients and even the pour order and then sit back and watch the robotic bartenders hard at work mixing them up to be served either at the bar or delivered to a table by a human. It's not quite like watching a young Tom Cruise in the 1988 movie Cocktail, but entertaining nonetheless.

Shaken or stirred (strained or muddled), the cocktail concoctions seem endless at Quantum of the Seas's Bionic Bar powered by Makr Shakr. Here's a behind-the-scenes look at what it took to create Royal Caribbean's two newest hard-working crew members B1-0 and N1-C.
