Apple iPad to be available in every cabin on the cruise ship Splendour of the Seas
As if tablets haven't become omnipresent, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line is now putting an Apple iPad in each cabin of the luxury liner Splendour of the Seas starting in February of next year. The tablet will not be connected in any way to the room which means that guests can take the Apple iPad from their cabin and use it as they roam aboard.

The cruise line told USA Today that the iPad in each of the liner's 1804 cabins will show the ship's daily listing of activities and events and will allow users to see their personal itinerary on the tablet. The Apple iPad will also allow users to browse the web, watch movies, order room service and view restaurant menus. In other words, the tablet will be like a portable version of the interactive television system found on the ship.

Within the next two years, 5 of the line's 22 ships will be renovated while dry docked and also will be set up with a iPad in each cabin. Those ships include the Legend of the Seas, Grandeur of the Seas, Rhapsody of the Seas, Enchantment of the Seas and Vision of the Seas.
