Royal Caribbean to deploy iPads to every room of 6 cruiseliners

(Each cruise ship has about 1,000 state rooms, meaning about 6,000 iPads, eventually)
"The tablets are to be programmed to allow passengers to access the ship's daily listing of events and activities, as well as see a personal overview of the daily itinerary, including any arrangements for day trips.

Passengers will be able to use the tablets to monitor their onboard account, order room service and take a look at restaurant menus. They will also allow users to access the internet and watch movies and take the iPads when they walk around the ship.

After it completes the first deployment, the Royal Caribbean plans to add Apple devices to the cabins of five more of its 22 ships over the course of the next two years."
