Default Wireless Internet

In a brochure that I got with my docs, it said that wireless internet was availible. I know you have to pay for internet time on their computers, but is the wireless free?

And does anyone know where the wireless is availible (the cafe or anywhere on the ship?)

You still have to pay for access to their hotspot. Big $$$ too! Some ships I hear has it available all over, most I think only in the cyber cafe. $10-$12 per min, and it is slow, rumor has it.

More like $0.75 a minute depending on what plan you get. You might be thinking of the phone service.

To utilize the internet service, the below options are available. Please note that the internet pricing options are identical, whether an Internet Café terminal is utilized, or a laptop. All internet access charges will be billed directly to the guest's onboard “Sail & Sign? Account:

Thanks for the clarification. As I said most of what I heard was rumor.

Wireless Internet on the Liberty is 100 minutes for $50 with a $3.95 one-time connection fee. I believe the rate for 250 minutes is $100. I went with the 100 minute plan. The connections was faster than I expected. Rates are the same for wireless as they are for using computer stations at the internet cafe. Hope that info helps.
