    Purchase them from the iTunes store to download direct to your iPad, or burn your DVD collection onto the iPad.

    Downloading from iTunes is easypeezy, ripping your own dvd's for the un-technical is slightly more difficult.

    Welcome to the forum! As sjleworthy says, renting movies from iTunes is the easiest, quickest way to have an instant movie library that you can watch at your leisure. We download three or four whenever we travel to watch on the plane, etc.

    Rented movies stay on your iPad for 30 days but you have to finish within 24 hours after you start watching them.

    You can download them straight to your iPad by opening the iTunes App and tapping on "Movies" in the toolbar at the bottom. You can also download movies to iTunes on your computer and then sync them with your iPad. More here:

    Hope that helps, welcome again and enjoy your cruise!

    Or if you can't get enough of movies,you can obtain a Go Flex Satelite,which is a wireless 500 GB hard drive that you upload MP4 movies(The Ipad standard) to it,and are able to retrieve them on your Ipad. The device is somewhat pricey from where I got mine from($200,Best buy),but as luck would have it,i found it for less here,right after I bought it...look up Go Flex Satelite on Ebay,there is one there for $159.....Works well,and,more importantly ,you are able to overcome the space limitation of your Ipad...

    Yes, once they are on your iPad you can watch them without wifi.
