We got off the Westerdam in November, 2017. At that time, they had unlimited internet in 3 classes for the duration of your cruise or segment. The lowest level is "social", and is limited to social media life Facebook. The next level is for most normal browsing, banking, and e-mail, but doesn't include Skype and other VOIP. That is the "Premium" level. They also had a by-the-minute rate of .75 cents. Not practical unless you only have to check e-mail a few times. We used the premium level because we had to use Skype. Skype worked flawlessly, even video calls. It was a little expensive. We were on a collector's cruise from Venice to FLL with the turnaround in Rome. The 12 days to Rome was $189, and the 13 days to FLL was $209. The intermediate level was somewhere around $145 for each leg and the social level was $95 for each leg.

Perfect. Our dog was just diagnosed with diabetes today and we want to be able to have email contact with our house sitter. Can it be shared on different phones? On royal we could share.....one could log out and the other could log in.

The daily internet cost for the Westerdam last month was $14.99 for social media only, $24.99 surfing, and $29.99 for live streaming. If you paid for the entire cruise, there was about a 40% discount

Why oh Why won't HAL offer this on all their ships!?!

 

It is only offered on those ships who have been through drydock and been upgraded to "high-speed" (cough cough) internet capability.
