I was told I could use a laptop of ncl's on the cruise if I bought a package on minutes. Is it hard to get a laptop. I wonder how many they have. Is internet connection even good? Thanks again to anyone that can help me!!

I don't think they "rent" laptops (although I could be very wrong) I did see several people with laptops working outside the internet cafe, but I assumed they had brought theirs. There are 4 or 5 desktops you can use inside the internet cafe. I did not use the service, so I couldn't say for sure if they had laptops available for use...

NCL rents laptops, but I'm not 100% sure they do so on every ship. Here's the NCL web site link that should provide more answers.

Just cruised on NCL's Star. Saw several people usinglaptops, but not sure if they were theirs. The Internet Cafe where you can use their computers is VERY expensive, and I heard
they're very slow.

We sailed on the Star last year, the Jewel and Dream this year. There are several areas around the ships that have 'hot spots" for laptop internet use. All of the laptop users that we met carried their own laptops. In order to connect you must pay the ship prices for internet service. Sue is correct, the prices are not cheap and you can buy a 200 minute package for about $100.00 or so. We agree with Sue, that on the Star the ships computers; which were in a computer bank, was expensive and slow. At .35 to .75 cents per minute, the charges add up fast. If you want to use the internet, most ports of call off the ship have internet cafe's or businesse's. Recently in Progresso, Mexico there was an internet cafe that offered service @ $4.00 for 15 minutes of use. This is your best value for quick e-mails. Happy sailing and computing.
