The long journeys are timeless, but without battery on the mobiles or tablets even more. Why not to offer phone charging stations to improve the passenger experience?
The history of the cruise ship industry begins in the days of the Pharaohs, Egypt. They began to build ships that were more than a means of maritime transport. They were designed to give the maximum comfort and elegance to the passenger so they could enjoy the tranquility and the beauty of the landscapes that surrounded the Nile. And they also created a pleasant atmosphere to rest, to negotiate or simply to move.
Nowadays, the basic purpose of the cruises is intact, even though the image of the cruises will be changing over time. This is due to the fact that companies are increasingly focused on detecting and meeting the needs of passengers, with the goal of improving their experience on board. One of the biggest challenges that the sector has set is the recruitment of young people on their cruises, as according to the Port of Barcelona, 64% of tourists are over 45 years. And in order to do that, they have to offer more economic alternatives focused on the needs of today’s young people.
But, what are the needs of today’s young people? In what environment do they move normally? What priorities do they have if they have the chance to choose? At Yupcharge we have detected an increasingly essential need. Mobile phones and other electronic devices, such as laptops or tablets, are part of our lives, but unfortunately they have a limited usage time, so they need to be charged after the use.
Now you may be thinking “right, the need to charge the mobile is something that I already knew”. But, have you ever wondered how many outlets are there in a cabin? What type of outlets do they have? And, will be they compatible with most of the crew? We will answer these questions so you can see that having different cellphone charging stations and other devices is essential to offer a greater hospitality to the passengers. There are usually 2 outlets per cabin. But, how many devices are there and what are their needs to be charged? Do you think these outlets are enough to satisfy their need of charge?
Outlets may be different according to the region of the world, but passengers can come from all over the world. Why not to offer a universal outlet or a universal mobile charger for everyone and make life easier for them?
Yupcharge has collaborated in the installation of cellphone charging stations for large transport companies, such as Transmediterránea or TMB. For example, the former ones have opened to the younger audience, incorporating faster Wi-Fi, digital platforms for entertainment and phone charging stations so the passengers can enjoy their digital services and never run out of battery.
In addition, we offer phone charging stations adapted to any need and adaptable in different establishments. For example, if you want to solve the problem of the compatibility of the chargers to offer more charging points for different mobiles and other devices, we have the multi-charger that is ideal for this. Our great dependence on current technologies makes us vulnerable to running out of battery and having to use it for its many functions. If we are able to offer them charging stations, they will be able to continue enjoying them and the experience they will have during the journey will gain positive points.
