ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Carnival Cruise Lines is installing Internet cafes throughout its fleet.
Five Carnival ships have been retrofitted with Internet cafes while the installation aboard the line's nine other vessels are to be completed by spring, the company said.
The only ship that will not be retrofitted is the Tropicale, which is leaving Carnival in February.
The cyber cafes will give passengers the opportunity to check e-mail and stock prices, obtain news reports, surf the Web and send video postcards while sailing aboard the ships, Carnival said.
The company claims to be the largest cruise line in the world with 15 vessels that make 3- to 15-day voyages to Alaska, the Bahamas, the Caribbean, the Mexican Riviera, Hawaii, New England, the Panama Canal and the Canadian Maritimes.
