Internet Question under new Explore 4 package

Recommended Posts

The promotion is “Premium Internet Package for 2”.  Does anyone know if each person would get his/her own package or if for 2 means sharing for 2 people?

The Internet packages are for two people, but only one device can be used at one time. You can use several devices (we have two phones and two tablets), but only singly.

Unless you intend to stream video, you may be better off waiting until you're on the ship and signing up for the Surf package, which is cheaper. It excludes streaming, but includes most other sites. Good luck.

On my booking it says we BOTH get the internet package. Just like we BOTH get prepaid service charges.  So - no it’s not shared.

Thanks.  My booking just says Premium Internet for 2.  With the free internet, free gratuities, and the combined amount of OBC from HAL and the big box store, we may actually have trouble spending all of our OBC.  I may need to pack extra light and buy new clothes from Talbots and Chicos on board.  Good problem to have.

Good deal!  Our experience with HAL is one-at-a-time only, so your package is a definite winner.

This is correct.  It will be nice to each be able to be online at the same time.

Remember, big box store OBC is refundable OBC. Just off the Rotterdam, clothing selection in the shops was pathetic.

 

And the TP-Link router worked great for us. Just had to remember to log in each time we took the phones/ipad out of the room.

Am I completely oblivious and missed the Talbots and Chicos shops?  Or are they just randomly located around the current shops?

There were selections on Zuiderdam in July.  I bought a cute all weather/rain coat in July with extra Shipboard Credit!

Instead of getting a router, can we enable hotspot on an iPhone and then access the internet from both iPads simultaneously?

I'm trying to book a cruise at the big box store but it doesn't mention free gratuities, only Explore 4.  Do I have to book through Hal's site to get the gratuities?  Thanks for the help, I've only had 1 cruise so far.

No, you need to let the big box store person helping you. Don’t do it on line.
