Default Is There Internet Access on The Grand?

The boss feels the need to be able to email me during the cruise. Does anyone know if there is an internet cafe on The Grand?

Yes, there is a business center near the chapel and southwest restaurant. When I was last on the Grand, it was $7.50 for 15 minutes. Make sure you have an internet based email account, like hotmail, etc.

Hi Scuppers,
You may want to use internet cafe's when you get into ports, they are usually right by the pier and a lot less expensive. Remember though, this is a vacation for you, your boss can handle things until you get back :-)

Have a great cruise on Grand!

Hello Scuppers,

Yes, the Grand's internet cost is still $7.50 for 15 minutes (although the staff seemed - at least while I was using it - to be quite liberal with the clock, e.g. not charging any extra if you went over the 15 minute limit a bit.....)

One word of caution in using those land-based internet cafes in port....there is some security risk in using internet connections over which you have little control. Passwords have been known to be stolen via such cafes....

I don't think the cost of the on-board internet connection is outrageous if you are judicious in how you use it. AND it's there everyday, at sea, or in port......

Just my 2 cents...
