Complimentary Internet Access???
 
According to the Princess FAQs, "Plus – Platinum and Elite Captain’s Circle members benefit from credit toward Internet Café packages while full suite passengers also enjoy complimentary Internet access."

I have a couple of questions concerning the complimentary internet access for full suites.

1. Does this include in-cabin wireless service or is it restricted to the Internet Cafe?

2. Is there a limit to the amount of internet service that is really "complimentary?"

Thanks in advance ... Gazelle2 :D

In cabin use as well....

2. Is there a limit to the amount of internet service that is really "complimentary?"

If there is no time amount given I would think it would be for the length of the cruise, but never assuming is a good policy:)

I can't say for Suite Pax, but for Plat/Elite members, according to the Princess Website under Captain's Circle the times are ...

Complimentary Internet Packages
Each Platinum Princess Cruises Captain’s Circle member will receive a complimentary Internet credit to be used either on the computers in our Internet Cafés or wireless Internet on the passenger’s personal wireless device. The amount of complimentary Internet is determined by the length of the sailing.

I can never believe how fast the complimentary internet time goes by! I know on the when I was on the Magic we had problems, and they were going to be adding more bandwith.

Not to mention how frustrating it is when they lose signal, but I guess it is a miracle we ever get a signal whilst at sea, I mean at work I am only 20 feet away from our nearest connection point & can rarely get a signal :-?

Katrina and Alan, :D

Thank you very much for your answer. This is probably the same allowance they give to suites.

Internet access
 
Bear in mind that internet access on board is frustratingly slow, either in the Internet Cafe or in lounges or in cabin (if available). Availability of cabin access is variable from ship to ship. On most ships the suit passenger's lounge has wireless access.
