Lu, I am taking sailing on the Statendam Sept 5 Southbound and I contacted HAL about Wi-Fi connections. They do have "hot spots" in their internet center for passenger use. The charge is the same as connecting from their computers, but I will still do the Wi-Fi thing as I want to share some of my photos with friends while I am traveling. I do understand that some of the HAL ships have Wi-Fi in the staterooms, but not all ships have been upgraded to that functionality yet. You can get more info by contacting HAL.
