Normally, the perk Wifi package is 250 minutes.  You can only log one device in at a time.  You can upgrade to the unlimited for around $85.  We did that using our OBC.  It was pretty easy for me to log out and my wife to log in when needed, so we had no issues.

If I remember correctly, on Breakaway, they give you a certain amount of free data, not free minutes.  You can easily upgrade to unlimited wifi for a reasonable fee.  The concierge can do this for you.

We have not been on the BA in nearly 2 years but last 3 times sailing her, the 250 "free" minutes were credited as 1 GB worth of data, as used - metered NOT by the minutes unlike the rest of the NCL ships in the fleet.  I do NOT know if this is still valid - irrelevant for those paying for/upgrade to the unlimited plans for $$.  Speed was adequate & good enough for browsing & basic use AND with careful use/metering & managing the connection - I was able to get as much as over 1,000 minutes out of that 250+ minutes over our 7 nights cruise (actually, we had extra 30+ Plantinum "free" minutes on top).  It stopped once we exceeded the 1 GB data used cutoff - laptop & multiple devices signed in, one at a time only. 


Has nothing to do with being in Haven or not - Cisco servers & hardware does NOT differentiate on whether you are or not, same SSiD, 5 Ghz being less congested than the common/popular 2.4 Ghz WiFi signal on multiple channels. 


As always, YMMV.
