Default internet cafe in halifax ns cheaper than on board the ship?

Hi, I want to know how much the charge is on the Maasdam for using the internet to check email. Is it cheaper to go to an internet cafe in Halifax and the other stops on the Canadian cruise? Thanks.

Internet Cafes in various ports/cities are always cheaper than HAL's.

Suggest you Google to find one in the Canadian cities you will be visiting that are close to where the ships dock.

Basically it is cheaper almost anywhere ashore to check your email than aboard ship. In this day and age, free or reasonably priced broadband should be available to all passengers but alas it is not so. On many ships the service is abominably slow and they charge by the minute.
