Using 250 internet minute perk as credit towards unlimited

Recommended Posts

It technically latitude minutes have no value. Just as other free internet minutes have no value. Some internet managers will give you a small credit for latitude minutes against the price of an unlimited plan. (Remember, the internet manager is not an NCL employee. They work for the satellite wifi company). 

Your avatar really should be an owl, because you are so wise!

So, from a totally dumb unwise owl. I play a game that needs internet, will i be able to play it or not if we get the maximum package?  

 

We do on other cruise lines but this one seems more complicated for a dufuss like me 😂😂🤪

It's NOT confusing if you just agree to/sign a blank charge slip, don't look at the charges posted and never care to dispute onboard expenses, valid or not. 

 

For about $227 Euro or $245 USD with the premium unlimited VPN/streaming plan for 7 days/nights - depending on the ship & orbiting satellite coverage for the itinerary, it "should" work.  Coverage is NEVER guaranteed (with all the disclaimers & limitations of liability) - your odds of playing successful are greater than zero chance.  You are SHARING the dynamically cached connection among "mates" from among the hundreds of cabins, if not more on mega/plus ships.  It's your money, no need to think and just do it 🙈

 

These prices had not been raised "lately" and I wouldn't be surprised if it will go up shortly thereof.

If I am understanding this correctly- if I wait until day 2 to upgrade- and use my 250 minutes first- then I only have to pay the upgrade for the remaining 5 days? As opposed to upgrading first day on board and paying for all 7? Is that correct?

thank you!!

 

The remaining days are 6 not 5 -

in effect by waiting one day you get a partial 1/7th credit for charges not used -

and as has been previously noted work thru the Internet Café manager to apply the credits -

set up the easy logon-off apt to your device = best if not on a Unlimited plan -

lacking this you could run out of time in a flash ( just forget to logon off go to dinner and come back to ZERO time left) -

a sympathetic manager may reset the clock on a one time basic !

 

Some of dees guys are real wizbangs at setting this up for best bang to your onboard account -

hope you get one of those dees guys - the one I had on the DAWN 10/2018 and also the SUN 9/2017 were

real cracker boxes or whatever the term if for computer guru !

You will be fine 99% of the time. Unless the internet has issues in general, it's going to be fine for what you want.
