    Disney Cruise Line will now offer new internet packages onboard their ships. Instead of charging by minutes used, the new Connect@Sea packages are based on the amount of megabytes (MB) used.
    Guests can choose from the following package options:
    • Pay As You Go ($.25 per MB): Perfect for Guests who are not sure how often they will be online.
    • Small (100 per MB for $19): A good choice for Guests who want to check their email occasionally and then go back to enjoying their cruise.
    • Medium (300 per MB for $39): Ideal for Guests that want to share their vacation photos with friends right away.
    • Large (1,000 per MB for $89): This package covers all Internet needs. Guests can stream movies or their favorite music.
    Connect@Sea services will be introduced onboard the Disney Cruise Line ships on the following sail dates:

    • Disney Magic - Feb. 3, 2014
    • Disney Dream - Feb. 16, 2014
    • Disney Wonder - Feb. 26, 2014
    • Disney Fantasy - March 8, 2014
    Detailed information about the Connect@Sea options will be available in each Guest stateroom, at onboard internet cafes and at Guest Services.

    I use about 2GB (2 large) per month on my cell phone. Donna uses about 4 GB on hers. So I would imagine in a week on the cruise ship we MIGHT use about 300 MB ($39.00) I guess the question here is what if you go over? Do you then pay $.25/mb

    Perhaps they would let you "upgrade" if you realized you were getting close?

    The other issue is speed. Most guests who are used to their broadband connection at home might find themselves tapping their feet a lot while waiting for their upload to finish. :toetap:
