    Default Major Cruiseliner to Pack an iPad in Every Cabin


    The high seas are going high tech.

    Royal Caribbean announced this week that there will be a resident iPad in every single cabin of its massive 1,804-passenger Splendour of the Seas by mid-February. Officials behind the luxurious cruiseliner say the iPad-in-every-cabin campaign is, indeed, an "industry first."

    According to the folks at Royal Caribbean, Apple devices will be added to the cabins of five additional cruiseliners over the next twenty-four months. "Royal Caribbean says the iPads will be programmed to let passengers access the ship's daily listing of events and activities and to see a personal daily itinerary including shore excursions," USA Today reports.

    Passengers will also be able to enjoy the iPad for their own fun and leisurely web browsing pursuits. The devices, as you might expect, are being promoted as great tools for passengers to "to monitor their onboard account, order room service, view restaurant menus, access the Internet and watch movies."

    Can anyone recommend a decent iPad app for sea sickness?

    This is just asking for rooms to get broken into. When you go on trips like this isn't the point to get away from.. Electronics, etc

    I was thinking along the same lines. Someone will try to exploit this some how. Although with the price of using the internet on the cruise being ridiculous they cruise is making money, i think. I guess they'll have to tether the device to the room or else "oops it fell into the pool".

    My feeling is that these will somehow be anchored to the room.

    Yeah, cause all they are really doing is replacing the 20 year old Tube TV with an iPad. And you can guarantee these will be in locked boxes with only the screen and homebutton accessible.
