Default wi-fi on Jewel

I want to make sure I have this right. I am understanding there is free Wi-fi in the lounge, just not in the rooms. So I could check my email on a daily basis for free??? Cruising on the Jewel!!

You are right WiFi in the public areas. What makes you think it is free Same price as wired. $.40 to $.75 per minute depending on the plan you select.

Shore Guy, thanks for clearing that up. I have seen many postings where it appears people are thinking the same thing, (I.E. if it is available through WiFi, it's free, just like Starbucks). The truth is that the ships are making too much money off this service to give it away. Also, when you consider the time to connect and the slow service, you spend a lot more time and money than you would expect when comparing to land-based connections. I just wait until I hit an island with an internet cafe' and then I check my e-mail. It is much less hassle.

P.S. there is a good article written by a CruiseMates Staff writer which talks about the reasons for such slow service on the ships. Everyone who is interested in this topic should read this report.
