just saw this and found it interesting.
Carnival & Royal Caribbean, because of their younger patrons, will begin a pilot program so their loyal customers can be identified easier, along with all of their cruising history, which can be updated with a few keystrokes. But their is a small caveat. It involves being tattooed.
During your cruise, you fill out a form with necessary info, granting access to put your cruise history and preferences ( dining, activities,etc ) into a software program that prints out a QR code. One of those square codes you see all around. Anyway, they print out the code, you then take that code to a tattoo shop. They in turn copy the code onto transfer paper, and then go about inking you up. When you check in for your next cruise, or enter any on board venue, they scan the code. This info is then placed into your updated profile.
Options include receiving e-mails about insider discounts, and whatever else.
I assume it's these two lines because younger people are more apt to get the tattoo necessary to make this program work. Of course if you get the tattoo and the program ends, you are stuck with a stupid QR code on your arm. Also, what happens as you age ? Inks fade and skin stretches. Might be problematic.
Would you consider this program if they offered it to you ?
