Default Laptops

Going on the Miracle in May. Curious if laptops work in the staterooms. Not sure if mine if worth taking.

Leave it at home. You can't get internet connection in staterooms (you can go to internet cafe if you absolutely must get online). Ship to shore phone connections are about $9.50/min. I couldn't imagine wanting to take my laptop on a cruise....I spend so much time working on them, that it seems like taking it with me won't let me "get away from it all".

I am bringing my laptop, not for internet access but to transfer the many pictures from my digital camera so that i can take more.

We are thinking about taking our laptop like the above mentioned to empty the memory cards but to also have DVD access just in case the kids want to watch a movie in their room (other than what they show in-house).

We took ours on our last Cruise and used it to download pictures from the digital camera. We will also use it on the flights to San Juan for our little one to watch her Dora the explorer DVD's......

On the miracle, you can only use wireless in the lounge area at the bottom of the stairs on the floor below the Internet Cafe... Believe it or not, you dont get a good signal IN the cafe... lol
