  1. If you are using a regular computer to access Navigator, there is an option to actually download the menu in DOC format and hence not have to take a screen short or right click as Dave mentions.
  2. You will receive a can and you can ask that it not be opened. That way you can take them back to your cabin.
  3. Based on the table in post #2, the Surf Plan would be $169.99 for 14 days. I was on a recent 11 day cruise and paid $139.99 for the Surf Plan, so I believe the table to be accurate.
  4. look at this thread to start. It should help with your questions. The table with prices only goes out to 31 days, so you'll need to contact HAL for a price for 40 days.
  5. The Surf Plan supports POP3 mail accounts. I have one myself and it worked fine with the Surf Plan.
  6. The ships wi-fi is not connected to the internet unless you purchase a package. When you connect to the ships intranet, you communicate with the internal Navigator app either by downloading the HAL Navigator app beforehand or using a web browser and typing in Navigator.com. Once you create your account on the intranet, you can decide if you want to connect to the internet by purchasing a package from HAL. That is the only way you will be able to receive text messages unless you use Cellular Data to connect to the internet. Don't recommend this unless you have a Roaming package from your Cellular provider.
  7. You have to buy a package if you want to receive text calls from home. The ship's intranet only allows you to connect to certain web sites free of charge (HAL site, NY Times). I believe all ships offer the unlimited internet plans now. Once you have signed up for a package, you can leave your phone logged into the internet continuously.
  8. It looks like they're only allowing you to book Premium pre-cruise. Unless you plan to do video streaming, there is no advantage to purchasing the Premium plan.
  9. I was curious and so I did go back and log in to see what would happen. I had no problem getting in and seeing all the beverage options. Go figure! 😁
  10. I was going to log in as well and just saw this message pop up. Due to scheduled maintenance Saturday, May 18th from 10:30pm to 11:30pm PDT, the website will at times be unavailable, including My Account, Online Check-In and booking cruises, shore excursions, dining and gifts. We apologize for any inconvenience. Maybe they started early on the maintenance.
  11. You certainly can. Just go into your booking and find the beverage indulgences. You can pre-order a bottle of liquor (1 litre size) and request "Delivery at Sea". That way you avoid any local taxes and it will be in your room when you board.
  12. Once you are logged in, click on Already Booked, Manage My Booking, Purchase Beverages, Wine Packages. I found 11 package offerings for my cruise.
  13. You are better off waiting to purchase your internet package when you get on board. If you have any HAL OBC (non-refundable), the internet purchase will help reduce that OBC and hence ensuring you don't leave any on the table and lose it at the end of the cruise.
  14. Jacqui and I are neighbours and I couldn't resist the opportunity to make a joke since that is my last name. I constantly remind people what my name means as I shake my finger at them. 😁
