Default wi-fi on mariner of the seas

Does anyone know if mariner of the seas has wireless internet access for personal laptops and if so, how it works? The booklet says that it is available on MOST ships.

I know that there would be internet cafes with RC provided computers. But I want to sit on a deck chair outside with my laptop and get some work done. Is that possible or do I have to be in a certain area - that I would have to pay for wireless?

Does anyone know what the "nominal charge" would be for either RC's computers or using my laptop?

Thanks!

I found my own answer on the RC blog. Looks like the nominal fee is pretty outrageous- especially if you are using your own laptop (In my opinion of course).
