  1. Is it true that you can text other people onboard using RC app and guest wifi without buying internet package? thanks
  2. Cruised on Anthem late June/early July. Before we boarded we loaded the royal IQ app. Once on board we put phones on airplane mode, hooked up to royal-wifi and paid the $7.95 per device. We did not get Voom wifi. We were able to chat between all of us using the app. We moved around the ship and the wifi disconnected. This happened frequently, whenever we moved. We had to keep reconnecting it as it wouldn't do it by itself. I randomly would get Facebook and other app notifications but if I tried to view them it said no internet connection. I normally use Google Voice for text messaging and I started getting texts. I tried responding and surprisingly it went through. I was able to text my son on the ship with me as well as phones back in the US. I'm not sure if it would have worked if I didn't pay for the RoyalIQ service but might be worth someone trying. If all you want is free texting and communicating between people on the ship this might work.
  3. 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!
  4. We are traveling on our first Royal Caribbean cruise this August and wanted to know how most cruisers stay connected between family members onboard. We have my whole extended family traveling so we have a total of 5 rooms on 3 different decks (2, 6, and 9). Our teens are on Deck 2 and we are on Deck 9. I am guessing the only way to text each other to coordinate meeting places and times is by buying the internet packages - is this correct? I was hoping to have my teens off their social media and not have wifi but then we won't be able to connect with each other onboard. How do other families handle this?
