Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas is the world's largest cruise ship, measuring almost 1,200 feet long, 213 feet tall, and 208 feet wide. That's nearly 50% larger than the previous largest cruise ship, with a maximum capacity of 6,300 guests and 2,200 crew. A ship this size requires detailed planning to help passengers get around and its guest mobility system is a ship-wide digital signage network to do just that.

It consists of a network of more than 300 46-inch monitors strategically placed to provide information to passengers. The displays vary from passive screens with safety demos and information on activities to fully integrated and interactive touch panels that provide real-time information regarding activities on the ship. For example, the monitors can display which restaurants have open tables and which have a waiting list, based on data captured using shape-recognition cameras. They support multiple languages, including English, Spanish, French, Italian, German and Portuguese.
