Internet is a vital component for every seafarer, in order to make their time onboard ship more enjoyable. Communication with family and friends, podcasts, and entertaining videos, are only some of the actions internet provides to crew. However, while being online, all individuals must advocate positive behavior. This means to stand up for peers online, report cases of cyber bullying, and watch out what they post in social media.
