  1. Hello! My wife and I are going on Oasis this Sunday, October 23. I want to see if people have used Voom internet package before - on Oasis possibly as I've heard different ships have different/ spotty/ or more reliable coverage. Also, have people ever just used their cell phone provider for their international/ cruise coverage plans? We have AT&T and am wondering if that's worth it more so than Voom. Seems like Voom is super expensive and I can get the AT&T for a fraction of the Voom cost. Just seems like I'm missing something here? Thanks for all your help!
  2. Hello, If I book my internet package online as a 2 person surf and stream, can you get the 2 free days refunded once onboard for 2 D+ Guests? Anyone done this before? TIA, Alice
  3. Hi folks, I'm taking my first cruise (8 nights) on the Empress out of Miami on Aug 24. I would like to use their Surf and Stream internet package, but I don't need it every day, specifically just the two days we're at sea. I know the terms and conditions state that it "must be purchased for the duration of your cruise" but I'm wondering if anyone has advice on how to get around this, or an alternative. I don't need to stay connected, I just want to upload photos, and update my blog, twice during the trip. Thanks in advance!
  4. Hello All, We're going for it with The Key on our upcoming SoS cruise, despite what anyone has had to say about it. I've read many of post about the moving target that is the listed benefits. What I want to know about is any unlisted benefits. The two I have heard so far are: 1) Pool Towels Galore with no need to check out/check in 2) A somewhat random mid-trip fruit basket or plate Anyone done The Key and received a benefit never described in a RCCL missive? Thanks! Melanie
  5. I have a lot of credits and so I want to use some of them for others in my group of friends. I want to buy an internet package for one of my friends in another stateroom - can I use my credits for this ie I do not want to spend my credits and then find I am stuck with the internet package as I do not want it
  6. I'm now seeing both 'Surf' and 'Surf and Stream' Voom packages available in the cruise planner for U.S. based sailings. Historically for the U.S region the cruise planner has typically only offered 'Surf and Stream' with a few rare exceptions. To purchase 'Surf' in the U.S. region you typically had to wait to board the ship. Pricing is now consistent through the middle of 2019 for my sailings. SURF 1 device @ $9.992 devices @ $17.993 devices @ $24.994 devices @ $27.99SURF and STREAM1 device @ $11.992 devices @ $19.993 devices @ $28.994 devices @ $33.49 While Surf is a slower performing package, for basic internet chat and 'dial up' type access it may fit the needs for many who just want to keep in touch, or chat with friends and family at home. If nothing else, pay attention to which plan you are picking when making cruise planner purchases. This is the first time in a long time that Voom pricing has been consistent over a number of months. In my experience Surf is speed limited to 0.5Mbps down and 0.25 Mbps up while Surf and Stream has typically offered around 4mbps down and just under 2Mbps up. Surf Surf and Stream
  7. The cost of Surf and Stream has dropped for at least 2 cruises. For the President's Cruise (09-29) on the Harmony, Surf and Stream is down to $10.79 a day. The Symphony T/A (10-28), Surf and Stream is $11.99 daily. Check your Cruise Planners, fellow propellerheads and save some coin. Update: Still active for these cruises, possibly more, as of August 24.
  8. This is a question I always see on this board..."How early does ____ open for booking?" Today I logged into my CP and saw that everything, except entertainment, is open for my March 2019 cruise on Harmony. That is a whole 283 days out! And dining was actually out before at 328 days out! On the Harmony FB group, some are reporting that their packages are now open for June 2019 sailings. So it just goes to show again that there is no rhyme or reason to it.
  9. My wife and I are celebrating our 20 year anniversary on Majesty of the Seas (which coincidentally is the boat we took on our honeymoon!) We will have our two teanage boys with us and will need to communicate with them while on board. Is there any way other than getting the internet package for all four of us? And on that note, you pay $14 per day - does that mean you pay $14 also for the last day when you're off the boat by 7am?? Thanks in advance for your input!
  10. I have just bought a voom package for our upcoming cruise on Allure of the Seas. When I get on the boat, how will I get it. Will it be in my stateroom waiting or will I have to go to guest services? Thanks
  11. So glad to have found this forum as I was only ever on 1 cruise before, and that was The Disney Cruise over 13 years ago! We are going on the Symphony in May (Western Med) and I have several questions: 1) I thought internet was free in the room, but then I saw that there were packages to buy? 2) I thought that the only free drinks were water, lemonade, juice, coffee/tea, but in the picture they show cans of Coke and Sprite? We don't drink and the package seemed expensive for soda, so now I'm now sure what they provide? 3) We don't want to leave the ship every day (we only have 1 official day at sea); is this ok? Is everything available on the ship like restaurants, etc? Thanks in advance!!
  12. I have a question on the VOOM SURF + STREAM packages specifying the number of devices (1-4). I recently purchased the Beverage & VOOM 1 Device package for my upcoming cruise in Feb on Oasis. Does the 1 device mean I can only use one specific device the whole cruise or only 1 device at a time? For example, in the stateroom I would like to use my laptop but while going about the ship I would like to use my iPhone. Thanks in advance for the clarification!
  13. I'm looking for thoughts regarding the purchase of VOOM for our 7 night Western Caribbean on Allure in June...sadly, we can't swing the Alaska group cruise that month. Family of Five We are getting two adjoining Central Park Balconies Stateroom 1 -- 2 people (ages -- old) -- share 1 package Stateroom 2 -- 3 people (ages 17, 20, 22) -- a package each for sanity We are contemplating getting a 4 device plan on Stateroom 1 at $39.17 per day = ~$7.83 cost per person per day (about half the single device plan) -- the cruise planner doesn't allow for purchase of plans across reservation numbers like booking dinner reservations. I may be answering my question by writing this, but has anyone encountered issues with buying a multiple device plan and allowing others from another stateroom to use the logins? I can't think of an issue where this may be a problem, but I may not be thinking it through. It's also easier to write this than explaining it on the phone to RC. I have only bought one-device plans on previous cruises.
  14. First timer and apologies im sure this has been answered but I have looked and cant find. SO I am thinking I will purchase voom 1 device. Can I use my iphone, then log out and then later say use my computer? Yes this is two devices but they are both mine and I wont be using at the same time. Is this possible or do I have to get 2 devices which is not worth my while. OR should I just do the internet cafe. I need to stay in touch with work for emails mostly.
  15. Hi Guys Sorry I feel a little dumb asking this, but what exactly is the STREAM voyage package and what are the benefits? I see it does not cost much more than the regular Voom, but I would love to save if I could? Also, it seems on the online cruise planner I can only book internet for the whole cruise or not at all. Thanks for your help Lachlan
