I'm back, had a wonderful time, and YES! Internet services were very expensive (and slow) on Regatta. I had to use the service while on board because I was in the Bay of Biscaye watching Hurricane Isabel on CNN as she headed directly towards my home in North Carolina!
Except for the charges though, the Internet center is great, the instructors are great, and there were many people who learned a great deal from the computer classes offered. For the first time they were able to send pictures with their e-mails, and learn how to port a word.doc into a message. The range of offerings was impressive and not all of them directly related to being on-line. The manager and staff on our cruise were knowlegeable and friendly, and it was nice seeing so many people come away so happy from the classes.
