I don't disagree that we don't need the internet to enjoy our vacation. But, things like confirming airl line reservations, keeping in touch with family and neighbors, and emergencies make the internet invaluable. On our last cruise, our traveling companions had a wild fire in the area of their home in southern Ca ...they broke down and paid Carnivals price to keep in touch with neighbors to be sure they weren't homeless. Carnival has Bow to Stern WiFi...seems to me that offering this for free would be an incentive that would attract many. I know I prefer a hotel with free internet over one without. I think Carnival is missing out on a feature that would attract more cruisers.
