I was on the Voyager last month, and I never saw anything about dial-up. There was wireless, but I never could get it to work. You have to "sign up" for wireless in the library on one of their computer, but like I said, I never got mine to work. I think the library computers are $0.55 a minute. You can get it for a little less if you purchase time up front, say $XX for 60 minutes. I don't remember the price, but it's slightly cheaper and would be a better value if you plan on spending a lot of time online.

The only ships with the weekly, one price all you can use dial up are the Radiance and Voyager class ships. Splendour is a Vision class ship, so that option isn't available. They do have Wi-Fi though, usually 6 hot spots, library, cyber center, purser's desk, solarium, business center and Windjammer if I remember correctly. RCL's website still says that the price is 50 cents/min and packages are $25 for 60 minutes, $35 for 90 minutes, and $50 for 150 minutes. There have been posts on another board that hint that the price has gone up some, but I have no data on that. You'll need built 802.11b, which I think you said you have. As far as getting it to work, logging in at lunch time on a sea day isn't going to work, there are too many people trying to use it. If you want to get a decent connection, log in early in the morning, or late in the evening, or best bet, when everyone is ashore at a port call.
