We're leaving this Sunday on the Miracle and have seen several posters talk about wireless service on the ships - Does anyone know if the Miracle also has WIFI? Our laptop has WIFI and we'd love to keep in touch with the kids.
I cannot say for the Miracle, however on Destiny as poster mentioned it was $3.95 connect fee (one time charge) and they offer packages rates. I recall cheapest was $24 for 60 minutes. Although there are a few bonus times where they add 10 minutes free. A bit cheaper than .75 a minute if you need that much time.
I am also not sure how easy a laptop connects- we used ships computers. I'd like to know though if it is worth bringing a laptop along.

My laptop wouldn't need to really connect to anything...the wireless service picks up any available surrounding signal and you can log on to that - but they can password protected so that's where the ship charge comes in...I shoulda known nothing would be free!!
