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 (www.crystalcruises.com) 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.
