This may close out this thread. My computer buddy says that it would be no problem for them to establish the WiFi. It would only cost normally something like $4 a meg, and carnival is probably getting a much better deal per meg. Plus their shipboard systems communicate back home so all they need is additional bandwith to support the customers. He says that while it would be easy, the pricing is to keep the usage down, if you had 1500 people using the Internet on-board it would need a s**tload of capacity. I guess if we need to get on, we'll either wait for port, or pay Carnival prices.
