Default Unlimited Internet option

We are booked on the Constellation for its April 26, 2003 transatlantic and I have a question about the internet on-board.

When I was on the Infinity last year, internet was $.95 per minute. I have seen postings that this has been lowered to $.50 per minute. That's a bit of an improvement. However, internet on land is always much cheaper. In Spain last month, we paid $.50 for half an hour of internet.

I recall reading something somewhere about the possibility of unlimited internet on board the Celebrity ships - perhaps even something about internet in the cabins.

Is this for suites only? We've booked a 2C (standard outside with balcony). Is there internet in the basic cabins or just suites? Is unlimited internet available in the cabins or in the internet cafe? How much would it cost for a 14 day cruise?

I'm thinking with all those sea days I might be looking for a chance to chance with my buddies at home via e-mail.

Hi Brenda,

The Millie class ships (includes Constellation) do have internet capabilities (connect@sea) from your stateroom. You need to bring your own laptop. The fee I paid was $100.00 for the duration of the cruise, 11 days, and I believe it will be also for 14 days. This was back in May 2002 from Hawaii.

I used the connect@sea often and was worth the $100 compared to $.95 a minute. The speed is like a modem, so it can be slow but overall worked well.

According to Celebrity it is availble from the cabins including a Cat 2C.

Thanks, YTC - I guess I'll be out of luck, as I don't own a laptop (although it sure would be great to be able to download my digital photos while on board).

I guess I'll just have to settle for $.50 a minute and be a little less wordy than I usually am.

Hi Brenda! The cruise you are taking sounds wonderful. I hope you will give us a full report.

We are going to the Panama Canal on the Infinity again.

This past summer, friends of ours who did the Infinity to Alaska, took FREE computer lessons, which also gave them free access to e-mail. Now, I don't know if it was a "special" offered only at that time or if it will continue to be available. It's worth checking out.

We are just back from the Constellation and used their Cybercafe at 50 cents a minute. There is an option to access your email account but it downloads every message and doesn't allow messages to be deleted. So everytime you try to check your mail, you have to eat up the clock for all those messages you read already or don't chose to read, like Spam. We found that we could get on the internet and go to our ISP and access our mail directly. That way we didn't have to download any message we didn't want to read and could delete items we didn't want. We use Earthlink and I found that my inbox was 95% full due to pictures friends had emailed me. I deleted all those and got the space down to 25%. Otherwise any messages sent to me wouldn't have made it and people would have received a "mail box full" message.

e-mail can be checked without accessing your ISP through a web browser, such as www.mail2web.com, then type in your e-mail addy and password. It'll allow deletion of e-mails and viewing in html or text.
