Quality of "Unlimited streaming Wi-Fi" on the Jewel

Recommended Posts

I've got a 12-day Australia/New Zealand cruise on the Jewel coming up and I'm looking at the internet packages. My parents are elderly and have health issues, so the peace of mind of being able to make Wi-Fi calls to check on them would be worth the cost of the upgrade.

Is the speed functional? Does it vary with ship position? I'd be mad if I paid a chunk of money for something that turned out to not work as described! We're in an aft suite and I seem to remember connectivity being sketchy on the Pearl in a similar location. 

I'd appreciate hearing about any specific experience on this ship.

In Feb, 2019, the wifi on the Jewell was horrible - very intermittent and so slooooooooowwwwwwww.  I was rarely able to sign into secure sites as I was constantly timed out.

Were you using the standard or the upgraded Wi-Fi on board?

We did an Australia/New Zealand cruise on the Jewel in 2017, I remember the internet as being reasonable but we didn't make WiFi calls and were in a FWD suite

As I recall, there was only one choice.  This was an Asian cruise.
