USA Today's Gene Sloan is in Turku, Finland, doing a tour of the Oasis Of The Seas. In one of his blog updates - located here - he discusses several new processes the line plans to use on Oasis. Among them: security screening on the pier to get rid of the bottleneck at the gangway; universal waivers you can do on-line for ALL onboard activities (skating, flowrider, rock wall, etc.); bar waiters using electronic pads for drink orders, where the passenger will sign electronically as you do with Fedex so there are no piles of paper receipts to contend with.

Some of these will be made available for other RCI ships. I'd expect the electronic signing for drinks to go fleetwide at some point.
