<Royal Caribbean is using a new, low-orbiting satellite system to offer, in the middle of the sea, the same kind of high-speed and low-latency Internet access that people get onshore -- and at a much lower cost than has been available at sea before. >
I've never taken a cruise myself, but I interviewed someone just after he finished one. His main complaint was that he couldn't get Internet access for days. The ship was supposed to have had it, so he was very disappointed and put out. If Royal Carribean is touting this, they had better be able to deliver.
