Status: all at sea

If you can't let a day pass by without checking email or updating your Facebook profile, the good news is that you don't have to…

Online services have become more commonplace and affordable at sea and new ships such as Celebrity Cruises' Eclipse are taking the concept of an internet cafe to new heights – especially if you're an Apple Mac lover.

Eclipse's iLounge is the first of its kind on a cruise ship, comprising 26 MacBook workstations, and an enrichment centre where you can learn everything from how to create digital photo books to editing movies. And if you just have to have that new generation iPod, there's also an authorised Apple Reseller. .
