You will have to sign on to one of the ship's computers to establish an account. After that, you can use your laptop in your cabin. Below is a list of internet packages available. If you can wait until you arrive in port, ask any staff/crew member where the cheapest internet connection can be found. They know all the places.

INTERNET CHARGES
The current fee is $.65 per minute

Pre-Paid Internet Packages:
$ 35 = 60 minutes or 58 cents a minute
$ 55 = 100 minutes or 55 cents a minute
$ 75 = 150 minutes or 50 cents a minute
$100 = 250 minutes or 40 cents a minute
$150 = 500 minutes or 30 cents a minute

Yes and it is slowwwwwwwww. I usually find an internet cafe at some port if I absolutely have to connect. I bring my laptop but usually just use it to upload pictures at the end of the day.

The cost is the same no matter who's computer you use. If you use the ship's computers and buy a package of minutes, the price drops, depending on how big of a package you buy. Think "dial-up" speed.
