Internet worked, most of the time. Three of my Apple apps would not load, only had two that wouldn’t open on Regal with the Ocean Medallion internet. There were definitely slow periods and I would log off and try later.
Had complimentary internet of 500 minutes, left 120 behind and could have gotten by with less.
Light times were around 2AM, during dinner and shows. At sea afternoons were slow.
We had a mid-ship basic balcony cabin and reception was fine during non-peak use.
I know of one person who couldn’t get her email to work. Turned out to be settings, which the internet staff reset. She had to use her iPad, not the ships computers. Thus, if something doesn’t work, be sure to ask.
You get good instructions for the ships intranet. Once the page loads, internet is at the bottom of the page. You do get extra minutes first time you log create your login, thus if you think you may need them be sure to select extra minutes then.
If two to a cabin, I recommend one login (just log off the first device should you wish to login with a second). This will give you a feel for how much internet you use - should you run low/out of minutes. You can then create a new account adding extra minutes depending on number of days left in your cruise.
I planned 20 minutes a day with morning and evening email checks. Less than 250 minutes needed.
