Default Internet service on Celebrity

Does anyone know what the charge is for connecting to the internet on the ship? I want to check my email while at sea. Thanks

Friends were on RCCL recently and the charge was 50 cents a minute. Possible comparison cost if an answer is recieved.

Just got off the Infinty this morning. Yes, it was .95 cents per minute. Slow download though, so tell your friends not to send unnecessary stuff. eg. jokes. photos, jpg files etc. Difficult to get on and off within 5 or 6 minutes and that is without writing a message on-line. I ended up with well over $60 in on-line charges and I am not sure how neccessary any of it was. Infuriating to have newsletters and unwanted knocking up the bill in this situation. Most places we called at had a cybercafe near the dock at $3 per hour. Even Puerto Caldera and Cartegena.

I did not see any internet service available on the Galaxy as of 3/17/01.

The Sony PC wonder area on Deck 8 had all the computers removed. Unless it was moved to another area, I did not see the service offered.

Funny... when Galaxy and Mercury first came out... they were touted as being state of the art..... interactive tv.. and the whole bit.

There is no internet accesss on either ship.

The posts you've seen have been from those folks on Milllie and Infinity. 95 cents per minute is crazy. Best to use an onshore cyber cafe...
