I see there is internet access on all ships. My question is if I buy a pre paid package, if I exceed my limit does the excess then go on to a 'minute by minute' basis?
Looks like my requirement will fall nicely between 2 packages
Certainly, when your package expires you will pay by the minute.
Keep in mind that the internet on ships is a bit slow, so you might need more time than you would at home.
Enjoy your cruise.

Although I have not used the internet on Royal Caribbean, I think the policies and prices are quite similar across lines. Yes, you will be charged per minute when your package expires. However every time I logged on (on another cruise line) the system told me how many minutes I had remaining from my package. It also asked me if I would like to buy another package.
Conserving your minutes is a much better option - but if you used all your minutes the first three days of a 7-day cruise, buying another package could save you money vs. paying per minute thereafter.
Agree with unfdoug that WHEN you go online impacts your speed.
