When you think of taking a cruise, what do you think about? Deep blue water, warm breezes, bright sunshine? Relaxation? How about escaping and leaving the cares of your life behind for a few days? That part may be hard for some people who are Facebook and Twitter addicts or who can’t stand being unable to access email, whether work or personal.

Royal Caribbean International gives those considering a cruise another reason to choose them over the competition. The company is investing nearly $300 million to make the latest technology available onboard their Oasis-class ships. If you can’t stand to be away from your computer, tablet, or any idevice, you won’t have to be.

On all Oasis-class ships, cruisers will have access to Wi-Fi all around the ship. There will also be iPod docking stations, and many other amenities for the ever-connected traveler.

The overhaul began in May, 2001, with the Radiance of the Sea entering dry dock, followed in November by Splendor of the Seas. Vision-class ships will be scheduled beginning in May, 2012. Each ship will be in dry dock for a month.

It’s not just the technology that’s being added. So beyond the Wi-Fi and the flat-panel interactive stateroom televisions, gusts will be able to enjoy such things like plasma and LCD touch screen signs throughout the ship, LED video walls, a revamped nursery for babies and children aged 6 months to three years, and new staterooms designed especially for families. Add in new dining options like the chef’s table, and Asian-cuisine restaurant, a Mexican restaurant and some casual eateries featuring anything from brats to gourmet salads and you’ve got all you could ask for on your city-at-sea.
