Can I get my local paper on the ship?

I love reading my local newspaper every morning. Is there anyway that I can get it delevered to the ship (maybe if I pay extra)? Can I access it for free on the ship's Internet or will I have to pay for that? How much should I expect to pay for this service?

You can get it with a laptop and an internet connection in your room. $.50/minute.

Read fast and don't do the cross word puzzle.

Internet access is not available in your cabin on all ships - in fact, there are some older ships sailing that don't even have internet cafes on them. The rates for usage also varies from cruise line to cruise line. Some offer a flat fee for the week ($75-$100 I believe). Best to check their website.

No what Elaine? Just because a girl says no, I know for a fact that she , in many cases, doesn't mean no.

Why bother going away at all? Why not check into a local hotel, get a room with all the cable channels, have a paper delivered and get room service. Or better yet stay home than you can vacation exactly as you like.
