Internet Access on Princess Ships

If you are fortunate to be a Platinum member (having sailed Princess 5 times) you are eligible to receive a free Internet package that is based upon the number of days of the cruise you are currently on.

If you need to buy an Internet package, consider the option of buying it before boarding the ship. Internet packages purchased the first day on board ship come with promos like free bonus minutes. However, if purchased before boarding, the bonus is even better.

The place to check out Internet packages is under Communications on the Princess website. The 250 minute package at $103.95 ($3.95 for set up...everyone pays this) comes with 60 bonus minutes. This is a lot better than any of the sign-up bonuses offered on board.

When I arrived on board ship, I took my laptop to the Internet center and worked with the Internet manager. I signed a slip that had already been prepared with my name on it. I had to log on and register for the 250 minute package. The Internet manager than went into my account using his computer and manually added the additional minutes. Everything worked fine.
