  1. Italian guy. Sailed with him three times before. Done with replying. I gave my honest opinion and experience with the hotel director. My review and comments were made for cruisecritic members and voyeurs wanting information about Sirena.
  2. Just an update...recently off of Seabourn Encore. Internet was better than Odyssey class ships. Not sure if this is because Encore is newer with better satellite or geographically related. Definitely not fast enough to stream, but was able to utilize voice over WiFi most of the time with no problem which was very helpful as I have no choice, but to keep in touch with my business. We are leaving next week on Ovation and the staff I know on board says WiFi is rather good. I'm sure as a Carnival product they will roll out some form of MedallionNet throughout their brands. We were on Ruby Princess in late November (fresh out of drydock) and initial stages of MedallionNet were installed. Impressive system overall including keyless cabin entry, enhanced in cabin entertainment options, a phone app (with texting) and high speed WiFi. I thought this was very well done. At the end of the day I wish we could truly get away and not have expectations of being available 24/7. Being connected 24/7 is unfortunate, but for many the anxiety of not being is worse - especially if you own your own business. How nice it would be to truly be able to unwind and disconnect except for emergencies. Perhaps one day when I retire...ahhhh.
  3. SEABOURN - PLEASE LISTEN TO YOUR LOYAL GUESTS - WE WANT HI SPEED WIFI AND INCLUDED! So the Carnival Corporation (Seabourn parent) is rolling out high speed WiFi on Princess ships. They will have a band width that can accommodate 6,000 guests at once with ability to stream video, have Face Time calls etc. I really hope at least with the launch of Ovation that Seabourn uses this technology to ensure high speed WiFi is available on Ovation - soon to be newest ship - and launches on all other ships. Seems crazy to me that a mass market product like Princess should have hi speed WiFi before a ship of only 500-600 passengers with it's luxury relative Seabourn. Perhaps akin to Chevrolet offering a high tech feature before it becomes available with Cadillac. Makes no sense.
