On ship, the internet operations are run by an independent vendor, not NCL.

Costs are....$3.95 sign on fee.

.70 cents per minute or you can buy packages.

60 minutes at .55 per minute.

100 minutes per .40 cents per minute.

If you just want to email the kids and touch base with home, check stock quotes etc. you may want to consider an internet shop/cafe in port. Many ports have internet shops right off the ships as they are used heavily by crew members who want to touch base with family members back in their respective countries.

On our last cruise we used an internet cafe.

In Puerto Vallarta...$1.00 for 1 hour

In Matzalan....$1.00 for 30 miutes

In Cabo San Lucas...$1.00 for 15 minutes

You can get internet service in the staterooms via wireless, but as Dave Beer's stated you must pay for the service. And when on sea days be prepared, the system gets overloaded with users and the download/upload time becomes very slow. Of course the service is satellite from the ship.

Also, depending on the ship's location the internet can suddenly go off-line - just when you don't need it to happen. The internet was down more than it was up on our recent Alaska cruise.

LI_PETS:

Bob:

The internet connection on the ship is via a satellite uplink. There is no way to get any kind of internet service on board other than to sign up for the NCL program that they offer.

Consider visiting an internet cafe or internet shop once you get into a port. The internet cafes/shops are growing in poplularity and prices are very CHEAP. You will see many of the ships crews in the internet shops, writing home to family members. In fact, some the port internet shops are so busy, you may have to stand in line to get in especially when more than one ship is in the same port.

If you sign up for the ships internet service, you may find on sea days, it is very slow and difficult to even get on line. The NCL ships have routers stategically placed in hallways near staterooms for wireless, but at times the upload, download rates are extremely slow, and you can eat up air time very fast.
