    Internet on the cruise

    by ANTIKRISS » Wed Dec 24, 2014 6:16 pm

    I know we have to pay shitload of $$$ to use internet on the cruise. But is it available everyone? Even in the ocean? Because we will have to use it 10 minutes.

    Thanks.

    Past cruises it was $35/hour. With a more modern ship, it might be different.

    Don't know if this is your first cruise, but if you join the Royal Caribbean Crown and Anchor Society and reach Gold status (basically, one cruise) you get a coupon book in your room. Included is a voucher for a few minutes worth of internet. Careful once the cost starts calculating, though. Maybe if you make friends with some veteran cruisers they'd be willing to give you their voucher too. The internet is very, very slow. Yes, it is available the entire journey.

    And if you are lucky, there might be free wifi in Jamaica.

    I emailed RC and this was the reply I got- I'm going on the assumption that this is an estimate only but it's somewhere to start anyway.

    "Shipboard Wi-Fi Coverage is available on the Liberty of the Seas. Our Wi-Fi service provides easy-to-use wireless internet access that enables our guests to surf the net and send or receive email 24 hours a day through their own internet-based email provider such as AOL, Hotmail, Yahoo, or any web-based email provider. Rest assured that you will be able to access the internet from anywhere on the ship, even your own stateroom. All of our ships also offer an internet cafe, which is available 24 hours a day.

    Below is an example of the price of available Wi-Fi packages on a 7-night itinerary. At this time there is no per-minute pricing option available.

    Family Unlimited Package is $229.95 (2 devices)
    Unlimited Package is $189.95 (Unlimited internet access for your entire vacation)
    Daily Package is $59.90 (24 hours of continuous access from the time of purchase)
    Hourly Package is $29.95 (60 minutes of internet access that can be used in increments throughout the cruise vacation)

    Please kindly note that the purchaser of each prepaid package is provided log-in information which may only be used for one internet-capable device at a time. Additionally, prices are quoted in United States Dollars (USD) and are subject to change. Please inquire with the Guest Services Desk onboard for additional assistance."
