Default Technology on Paradise (shore tours & wireless networks)

2 questions about the technology available on the Paradise...

I've heard that some ships offer the service of booking shore excursions right from your room (through the TV? the telephone?). Is this available on the Paradise? If so, has anyone found this to be easier than doing it the "old-fashion" way? I usually sign up for excursions with pencil and paper shortly after boarding to be sure I get the tours I'm interested in.

Second, I've heard about some people bringing laptops onboard & connecting to the ship's wireless web connection. Has anyone had experience with this? And, is this available on the Paradise? We travel with the laptop so we can download photos/video from our camera, and as long as we have the computer, we may as well make friends and family jealous by emailing photos from the ship!

Thanks in advance!!

carnival victory has both excursions over tv and wifi. not sure about range of wifi, though. I haven't seen access points all over ship. Probably you could use wireless connection only within a limited distance from internet center.

They do not have the shore booking or looking at your account from tv. I dont know why, we have had it on different ships. They have computers where you can pay by the minute to use the internet. I didnt see anything in the room for laptops. We take ours just to download pics off our digital camera. They may have were you can hook your laptop up over at the computer stations, but for a charge.

The paradise does have wireless connections. I didn't use it but it is available.

You can not order excursions via tv or telephone. The old fashion way is very easy.
