Default computer use

We are wondering how much it costs to use the computers while at sea? We will be sailing on a 9 days cruise and my Mother has been ill, so we want a way to keep in touch back home.

PC use on board can be very expensive and slow. Another option is to ask crew members where they go in ports. There are internet cafes almost everywhere now, and even if you need to check in daily, you can save a lot by doing it in ports when possible.
Another sugggestion would be to have someone you trust promise to spend the $ to call you on board if there are any problems with your mom. Tough to travel with that kind of worry on your mind, but I am doing that for a friend in August. I'll check in daily, but only call if needed. Calls to ship run about $10 a minute and, again, slow connections.
