I took my laptop on the Liberty and used it every day. I sent pictures to my kids and checked my email. I thought the package they sold was very reasonable and loved being able to connect wi-fi from our room. My husband was able to do some research for a talk he had to give when we got home. I know that it helped him to relax and not worry about work. We just got off the Oosterdam and did not have wi-fi in the room. I bought some time, but I had to go to a public room to use it. I would probably not take my laptop on a ship without wi-fi in the room. The Oo has dvd players in most of the rooms so I wouldn't need it for movies. I will be going on the Westerdam soon and still have not heard if they have wi-fi in the staterooms. If they don't I will just use the shipboard computers to check email.
