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.
