Default internet

I would like to know if there is an internet room on the ship? How much does it cost to use it? Is there a big waiting list for the internet to be used? On the carnival victory that is.

Most of the Carnival ships have an internet cafe on board... including the Victory. I think they charge one of two ways... by the hour, or a flat fee for the entire cruise but I don't remember the exact costs. Someone will have that info for you though.

I've read somewhere the charge was 75 cents a MINUTE with a minimum charge of 5 or 10 minutes (I can't remeber which).

Not really feasible for surfing the web......

Hope this helps

The café is open 24-hours a day and features private workstations which utilize the latest satellite technology. Guests will have the ability to send and receive e-mail, access Internet sites and transmit a 20-second video postcard to friends and family back home. Guests can either use their own "web-based" e-mail address or obtain a temporary account while on board.

The charge to utilize this service is $.75-per minute. Guests may also purchase a block of minutes for a set price plan.

Plan 1 offers 100 minutes for $55.00 ($.55 per minute)
Plan 2 offers 250 minutes for $100.00 ($.40 per minute).

Charges for this service will be billed to the guest's Sail and Sign Card. If the guest needs to obtain a temporary account while on board, there will be a set-up charge of $3.95. To send a 20-second video postcard, the charge is $4.95. The cost to print information is $.50-per page.

Wow! That is too steep for my blood!! I guess I can see if I was some kind of business woman who needed to keep contact in that way or parents away from the kids.....but just to say 'hi' to the girls back home?????? Heck no!! I'd tell them that I will miss them and yadda yadda and that I'll tell them everything in 7 days!

Besides, sounds like it'd be cheaper to call from port on a long distance phone card. (I could be wrong because I've never tried it.)

I think there should be a new disorder listed in the DSM4 regarding pre-cruise addiction to organizing/reading posts/reviews etc.!!!

happy cruisin' (no matter the addiction it causes)

It is a lot for the internet service. I used it because our phone cards didn't work, so it was a way of keeping in touch with family and friends back home. We were also told if you talk under a minute on the phones in your stateroom it will not register and you won't be charged. So if anything you can call and say hi and let your family know your alive lol. I know it works because the people I was cruising with and myself tried it.
