Cruise Line WiFi / Internet Options

Every Cruise Line approaches WiFi / Internet access a little differently. Some offer time passes, some offer limits on the data downloaded, some pay as you go, some offer free access - it's important to know exactly what you are getting and to make sure you make the most of it. 

Before adding WiFi to your cruise ask yourself...

  1. Internet at Sea is via satellite and although things are generally much improved it is slower than you'll likely receive at home.

  2. Ask yourself 'do you need WiFi'? Can you 'survive' with access at each port (most ports have free WiFi)?

  3. If you need WiFi then what do you need to use the WiFi for? Knowing this will dictate the package you should purchase. 

  4. Check if purchasing WiFi in advance of your cruise will save you money - often there are incentives for booking before you step onboard. 

  5. When using WiFi always log out as soon as you're finished each session otherwise you may find you've used all your minutes the next time you try to log in (an all too regular occurrence)!
