When I looked at this plan, this is what I found on the page where you order it under "Things to know":

"Price displayed is per day use. Total cruise rate will

be calculated based on the number of cruise days."



So I believe it is $162.50 per day, so a 10 day cruise would be $1625.00. The same statement was noted on the unlimited WiFi and unlimited premium WiFi packages. But on the unlimited internet package it states:

"price displayed is for unlimited internet for the

duration of your cruise".



I could be wrong, but I would advise if anyone is going to purchase these plans that you check first before being blind sided.


Hah I noticed that too. Hope they correct it

The new interenet packages mention one you can stream on. What is confusing to me is of the 5 they offer - I can't see any difference between these 2: (price is for 15 day TA)

Wow! NCL prices are expensive. On our MSC cruise we just paid $29.90 total for the unlimited Social package, for 14 days. Works out to $2.13 per day. The same package on NCL would cost $175.00. Hopefully NCL will rethink their pricing.

Actually for15 days itís $187.50 or $12.50 a day if you purchase online so you canít even use your onboard credit. And you canít use the web or do email with this package. I think Iíll get the 250 minutes for $105 but once again have to pay online to get the 15% off so you canít use your onboard credit.

The old price on unlimited was higher than the current price for premium, so it's not as good of a deal to get upgraded to premium. I called in and they were able to cancel the old purchase. (I re-purchased online in light of the AmEx offer discussed in another thread. )

The Epic had 3 prices for unlimited
Social Media 14.99 per day (app to app messaging & Social Media Access)
Wi-Fi 29.99 per day (app to app messaging, Social Media Access, check email & general web surfing)
Premium Wi-Fi 34.99 per day (app to app messaging, Social Media Access, check email, general web surfing & video streaming)

I upgraded from my free at sea internet to unlimited wi-fi for an additional $84.97 (7 days) and for the most part worked well.

I was able video message with my daughter. She said on her end I paused only a few times but no delay on my end at all. There were areas of the ship that were better than other areas to connect. I never tried streaming anything and only used it for PM, FB & Emails. I never tried Skype, but if your son and yourself use messenger, you can video in it at the medium priced one.

The lower in the ship, the slower the connection or no connection at all. The i-consierge worked most times for looking up what was on etc. I did have a few times that it just wouldn’t connect. Although I wished it would have had a feature that allowed you to add from “whats on” to a favourites list. And it really should have a refresh. I cannot comment on the texting ability, since i was a solo traveller, I had no one to text with.

Some people donít have a choice and DO have to be online for work.

Some people own their own businesses and need to be in touch.

Some people have rental properties and need to be in touch.

Some people need to claim benefits and need to be in touch.

Some people have family issues- elderly, young, sick, pregnant, and need to be in touch.

Some people WANT to be in touch, to blog, instagram, write, read, etc.

Please donít color everyone with your crayon.

No they don't need to be, they WANT to be.

I own multiple businesses many in the tech/IT services field. I have hired good people who can run things for a week without me baby sitting. No one NEEDS to be on line while on vacation, especially not on that stupid anti-social media..

Sailing on the Gem on Tuesday 3/6, Does anyone know the difference of the two unlimited plans? What would make one deluxe?

I have the 250 minutes included, do you think I should wait to board to purchase?

Thanks in advance!

Guess what? Not everyoneís situation is identical to yours. Some people do have to check in with work. Please do not color everyone with YOUR crayon.

Why do you care? Does it affect you or your vacation somehow if someone wants to be connected? You donít want to be connected, others do. Why let it annoy you?
