Default Communication to home ??

I have a question I've only been on one cruise and it was with carnival. My girlfriends are planning a girls cruise using RC. Being phone calls, cells, and internet is quite pricey on carnival you could log on to the wifi in room and post to their message board free of charge and thats how i communicated with family at home. Is there anything like that while on RC??

If you used the wifi in your cabin, the charges would be applied to your onboard account, so it's possible you were charged and didn't realized it because the use of wifi anywhere on Carnival or RCCL is going to have a charge associated with it. Same holds true for cell phone service when out to sea, but that could have been charged by your service provider.

Personally, we like to take our netbook or android into port and do all our business there. We usually find a free wifi bar and have a beer while catching up on emails.

Unless you're close to shore and can get a signal from land, any ship-to-shore communications when out at sea will have some type of charge associated with it and it's usually not very cheap.

It was wifi in the cabin but you did not have to log in or enter any info to get on the carnival message board but it was thru carnival.com and i dont see anything like it on RC website. We were not charged everything was prepaid and I only had one adult beverage i had to pay for at the end of the cruise so i'm sure i wasnt charged.
