Can anyone tell me where the closest free wifi places are on Carnival's Bahama cruise stops? We'll be on Carnival Pride and stopping at Port Canaveral, Freeport and Nassau. I heard there was free wifi at one of the Junkanoo beaches but not sure if it was the one in Nassau or Freeport.

Last time we were in Nassau took a walk a couple of blocks from the pier and just outside a bank there must have been at least 25 people with laptops sitting on the ground surfing internet.

This past October I saw about 5 people with laptops sitting on the stage in the cruise terminal surfing the web. I was surprised as I've never heard of free WiFi there and didn't see any signs.

The Starbucks across the street from the cruise terminal offers WiFi for about $4 an hour. Not free, but a bargain for the caribbean.

Was just there in September at the McDonalds on the way to Junkanoo in Nassau....free wifi, but it is HORRIBLE. Most of the hotspots we have here, they didn't have in Nassau!


I too called home on my Itouch using Skype.. Mom couldn't hear me at all, but she was able to tell me that all was fine.

Thanks for the replies and the link. Trying to stay "unplugged" during the cruise but it will be nice to check in back home at at least one port!
