Leo tells Johnny Jet that he's impressed with just how good cruising is now thanks to technology. The Wi-Fi has gotten much faster and the pay service is getting more affordable. $30 for three hours, which you can stretch out by logging off when you're done and stopping the clock. Johnny Jet says that the new ships are smaller in space, because of all the technology. If you want space, you are better off cruising on the older ships.

They show up early and wait for you, not the other way around. And you can use your phone to order it.
