There are several cruise lines that offer free internet access to their passengers. To their, um, high paying passengers that is.
Oceania joins Regent Seven Seas and Crystal Cruises in the free internet marketing.
Of course, you have to be one of the premium cruisers to qualify.
For Oceania that means passengers in the Owner’s, Vista and Oceania suites.
No doubt it will be cheaper (if that’s your main criteria for choosing) to stay in the lower decks and pay the standard fees.
On my last cruise, my cell phone could pick up the signal from the ship’s internet and I could send/receive emails for free. I couldn’t surf the web but then I didn’t want or need to.
One of the reasons I sail is to get away from the web, something I am attached to almost all day every work day. And all the time I carry my smart phone with me.
Still, for the cruise ship lecturer who wants to be very current, even moments up until they step on stage, internet access can be quite useful/beneficial.
My last cruise overlapped April Fool’s Day. I could take with me to the stage that day Google’s latest antics for example. Google is part of my talk – Social Media for Cruisers. The very new information let me show my audience I was prepared anew and just for them.
