    You can unplug if you want to on your next cruise, but Royal Caribbean Cruises is betting big that most guests will welcome a much richer digital experience as part of their vacation. Its newest generation of ships sport virtual balconies to brighten interior rooms, robot bartenders, and Internet access that for the first time provides fiber-like speeds out at sea, thanks to new satellite technology that orbits closer to earth. New mobile apps let guests book restaurants and excursions on the ship from their own phones. CIO Bill Martin will describe how Royal Caribbean's IT organization has changed to take on more customer-facing, digital innovation, and he'll offer insights into what's next on the horizon.
