There is a large group of us going on the Star Princess on October 31. Chumley's Bear Cruise to be exact. I heard somewhere that the internet access is no long AOL. Was wondering if anyone can confirm this, The Princess web site says its still AOL. Also, would anyone know if they have wireless access on the Ship? Holland America does.
From my experience on the Sapphire internet connections are really too slow. It was a real break for me not to get online. This said there were some wireless areas and you could get onto web based AOL.
I think they recently raised it to 6 cruises, but I'm not absolutely sure. I guess you could call the cruise lines toll free telephone number and find out for sure.
Free internet service aboard ship is GREAT. I take time out of everyday to write friends to give them a rundown of where we are and what wev'e done for the day. I save everything I've written, print it out when I get home and put it in a photo album along with pictures and memorabilia. Years later, when you read your accounting of your trip, it will bring back more vivid memories and details than your brain can store, at least in MY case.
