Sailing Off and Logging On

Cruising and Web Site Designing

Most new cruise ships offer round-the-clock Internet access, some from their own cybercafés. Now Crystal Cruises ( will teach you to design your own Web site. In an innovative service—provided on the Crystal Harmony and the Crystal Symphony by the cruise line's Computer University@Sea program—special software and a 15,000-photo library help even a beginner to create a virtual travelogue. You pay only to publish the site (from $40 for 100 pages with 25 photos); instruction by the on-board experts is free.
