Can you get internet access/cell phone /blackberry etc while on the ship? How do people get in touch with you in case of emergency?

In addition to all you mentioned, each ship has an I.D. number and an international phone number. Some ships even have a service where you can call or be called right from your cabin.

You can look up the ship phone numbers here at INMARSAT. How to call them is explained in the links on that website, but you'd use the international code for the U.S. if calling from there (O11), then the 870 code, and then the ship number.

Shipboard internet and cellphone carry extra fees. As a minimum roaming charges for the phone and the shipboard internet is typically 75 cent per minute or so at the flat rate, although packages of minutes can be bought which reduce the per-minute fee. Some ships have wi-fi throughout, others have hotspots only. Then there is the internet cafe where you can use their computers.

A possible fix for slow dial-up in Leopard
I recently upgraded from Tiger 10.4.11 to Leopard 10.5.6. Everything seemed fine, except for a drastic slowdown in my dial-up internet access via the internal modem. Oddly Safari and Firefox ran fine, but my Mail and FTP/Telnet were crawling under the new OS.

The solution that worked for me was to uncheck the "Use TCP header compression" setting, which can be found here: System Preferences Network Internal Modem Advanced button (lower right) PPP tab. On that tab, set the Settings pop-up menu to Configuration, and uncheck the "Use TCP header compression" box. Then click the OK button in the lower right, followed by the Apply button (in the lower right), and you're done.

If your modem is connected, disconnect and reconnect to implement the change.
