Except when i want to make a wifi hotspot and want to install custom roms.

Dont buy cheap low end android devices and you'll see the difference.

They charge you to use the ships wifi so do you have to also pay to use internet on the ipad?

What if they want a different sync for each ipad? Doomed? Or take 1804 laptops with different itunes libraries...

I don't think that it would actually persuade me to ride this cruise over another, I could just bring the tablet that I already own, hmmm there's an idea.

that would be cool if the ship allowed you to sync up with it and view the itinerary with your own personal tablet.I just think its a way for them to bump up the ticket price a bit and offer "premium insurance" while on board.lol

its a neat idea.. but anyone that has ever been on a cruise knows that a waiter comes by every 5 seconds to ask u if u want another drink. lol.. and if your on a cruise, u shouldnt be playing with your darn electronics. There are too many fun things to do.. like.. gamble.. and drink.. and all sorts of fun stuff.. lol.

lol, thumb me down. mad because you havent been on a cruise? they are awesome, i highly recommend. notice in my post i didnt even mention the ipad, i said "electronics"..lol. i meant all electronics. lol

I wonder if they would allow me to use my own tablet on the ship.

yea sure.. but why would you bring it? i love cruises. one of our first rules is all electronics stay at home/in the car. a week of being disconnected and just being pampered (and drunk) is sooo good. :)
