WiFi

Our basic guide to cruise ship WiFi and internet access.

2Is it free?

Definitely not (apart from a few luxury ships). Bandwidth costs some serious coin.

The WiFi is either priced per minute (75 cents on average) or on a per-day plan on most mainstream cruise lines.

Most big companies (Carnival, Royal, Norwegian) are now charging per day or per cruise, similar to a resort or hotel on shore.
