Default Ship-To-Shore or Internet

Will be sailing on the Mercury 9/17. Was just wondering does anyone know if the Mercury has internet access and if so what is the cost? Also just curious-does anyone know the cost of a ship-to-shore telephone call?

Hi Sherry,

Yes, the Mercury does have Internet service. If I recall, heard the price was 75 cents a minute. Not cheap, but less than the ship to shore phone which again if I recall my figures, is $8.50/minute.

Regards,

Hi, avoid using ship-to-shore if at all possible., 14 minutes cost me over $170.00

If someone needs to contact you on the Mercury your ta can get the fax # and if you are in port ... you can return the call from terra firma... we did get an emergency fax while on the mercury.. it took a while to be delivered to our cabin.. but phone calls are outrageous... made a call from the Ryndam (holland america)... 1 minute $45.00.... 3 minute minimum... but depending on how close you are to a tower... you can use your cell phone on board... learned all these things because I booked a cruise 10 mos,.. in advance..... and then my daughter had a baby during our cruise... now only plan 8 mos in advance and check with everybody about the baby situation!!!!!!!!!
