I've never used the Internet service on a ship. Do you have to pay per device or can you sign in multiple devices under one package?You create a USER-ID and can use any device you want to connect to Internet ... IPAD, Phone, Laptop, their computer and so.. on BUT can only use one device at a time.

$100 unlimited wifi? Sweeeeet! How can this be? It seems like everyone would just get it, which would tie up all of the signal... Oh well, who cares, it would be a great price.If everyone is on the internet it should be easier to get a lounger and various other ship venues could be quieter.
Update. I spoke with the internet manager about this new plan and he said this was the first sailing HAL has implemented having only 2 plans and the only ship thus far. I told him this was a great idea and hopefully it will be implemented throughout the fleet soon.If everyone just left their connnection open, won't that slow down the system due to overloading it? Thats the problem with unlimited plans IMO.
There was a mention in the flyer that the internet has been upgraded as well. I can say that the wifi reception along with the speed has been more than adequate. I left my laptop at home and I am using my smartphone for reference. With only 2 plans available it makes it pretty easy to decide which plan to sign up for as well as not worrying about logging off since everything is unlimited.

If connection is open - you are using some data. The same as leaving your phone on data roaming all the time. Just periodic requests for data.
