Internet Pricing and Packages - Cruise Wifi

cruise wifi

Sailing the high seas doesn't mean you can't stay connected to your friends, family or when important business needs to be done online. Having Wifi access onboard is a must for avid cruise go-ers, so if you need access via your phone, laptop or tablet we've compiled a list of wifi prices onboard our cruise liners so you're aware upfront of any possible costs you are likely to incur.

Internet speeds onboard are slowing keeping up with technology advances with Royal Caribbean soon to introduce high speed internet services, but in the meantime, beware of possible wifi blackspots as the signal onboard is via satellite which slows overall speeds with so many users wanting prompt access. Please note that there is some software and apps that you are simply unable to be used onboard some ships to use due to bandwidth issues (eg. Skype, Netflix, Hulu, VPNs, gaming).

So what are some questions you should ask yourself before taking out an onboard plan to ensure you're not paying too much?

  • Do I really need to post that Facebook or Instagram post urgently?
  • Are they really important emails I need to send? Or can they wait till we dock?
  • Do the children really need to use the Computer / iPad or can they wait?
  • Can I access the Internet in all areas onboard my ship?

Also note that many ships have Laptops for hire and Internet Cafe areas where you can access the internet, so before packing your Laptop or heavy device do some research beforehand.

Below is a list of packages and prices available onboard the ships we deal with. Please note these prices are subject to change and should not be relied upon for accuracy. For more information please contact the cruise liners directly or refer to internet package information published on their website.
