The next time you take a Royal Caribbean cruise, you may be surprised to find what now comes in some of the cabins.

By mid-February, Royal Caribbean will add Apple iPads inside the staterooms of its 1,800-passenger Splendour of the Seas ship.

Passengers can use the new tablets to see the ship's daily activities, as well as check their accounts and order room service.

Five other Royal Caribbean ships are also expected to add the iPads over the next five years.
