Default Charge for wireless?

I have a laptop that has a WiFi card installed. Cruise docs (yes, just got them today... ) say wireless internet is avaiable in certain areas. I just want to know if they charge for this amenity.

Oh, and although we booked a 4a gty we were upgraded to a OV and were actually assigned a cabin (got the cabin # in our docs)! How wonderful yet confusing. I thought gtys wern't assigned until MUCH closer to sail date....?

It's not unusual to get your cabin assignment with your documents. Sometimes they don't assign until you are at the pier, but you got lucky. Enjoy!

They most certainly do charge for WiFi service. Rates are the same as using their Internet Cafe. Different time packages available.

Default No wait.....I was wrong....

We were upgraded from an inside to a BALCONY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are SO excited. I was confused because we are on deck 5 and I was associating that with a 5a room (OV). But I was (happily) WRONG

Oh happy day !!!

Any idea how much the packages are? Is it cheaper than using the ship's comupters?
