Hi,

I'm planning a cruise on the Sapphire Princess (new zealand/Sydney). Just wondering if I will have free internet access if I bring my own laptop? Any other suggestions?

Nope, unfortunatly you'll have a cost first, for the card to allow you access (usually around $40. to $45. through most lines. Then per minute online charges ranging from around .50 cents per min if pought individually or blocks of minutes in bulk about half that cost.

Cheers, Neil

Hello Neil; Hi Sioux, and welcome to cruise-chat;

I don't know what the fee for the wireless access card is but the ship's computers were a flat .75 cents per minute unless you bought a package, which brought it down to about .50 cents. There was no fee to set up an account for the ship's computer--you just swipe your cruise card.

Just a word or caution: it was very very slow, and often not available at all.

It's quite frustrating to have to pay .50 per minute & get a lousy connection at that. That price equates to much higher per minute considering.
