Mobile Infotainment – IT Solutions for Cruise Ships

Abstract

In the course of change from an industrial to an information and communication society, the implementation of software solutions and IT services is gaining significant importance (Wirtz 2000, p. 6 f.). Taking into account the needs and desires of the people who want to be constantly reachable and accessible to information independent of where they are, there is an increase in the diffusion and acceptance of mobile devices, so that almost the entire population of Germany is in possession of a mobile phone (Broeckelmann 2010, p. 9). Due to the increasing demand of IT solutions in the hotel industry, the question arises how this desire of an “illusion of being in a gigantic floating hotel” can be implemented on a cruise (Dickinson & Vladimir, 1997, p. 7).
