I've never taken my laptop on a cruise, but since I do pop on the internet a few times while I'm cruising, I am considering taking my iPad. I assume I will still have to buy an internet package, and that the rates are the same.
In the past I've used the internet cafe, but thought that sending a lovely pic of a sunset on the water might be a LOT more fun if sent while I was sitting on my balcony.
How about connection? Is it just as good in your stateroom as in the cafe? Does anyone know the current rate plan?
