We are just a few weeks out from our Ponant cruise and there is so little information available here and on the internet in general.
I am very interested in the quality of their onboard internet. I have to keep in touch as I am a small business owner. I have no problem paying for their pricey internet, but need to be sure I will have a decent connection at least some of the time.
Also, my carrier does not offer a calling package with Ponant. If I use my cell for calls, do they slap on a roaming fee as well to ride their satellite? I cannot get a straight answer from the cruise line.
We are doing the Adriatic and I am looking into a MiFi rental if the onboard internet quality is not up to a good standard.
For clothing, I am assuming resort elegant would be appropriate, similar to what we would wear to a resort on the beaches in the south of France? For the Captain's receptions, does my husband need a sport coat?
Looking forward to:
