Is WiFi Free on Coco Cay ❓

Recommended Posts

I’m pretty sure I read on here awhile back that WiFi was free on Coco Cay and I’m talking about for those who didn’t purchase Voom. Any truth to that

I've seen a couple reports that indicated free (no VOOM purchase needed) WiFi on Coco Cay.

Per RCI's web site FAQ section.

 

Q

Is there Wi-Fi high speed internet access at Perfect Day At CocoCay?

A

 

 

There is, and if you purchased a VOOM high speed internet package, you can use it on the island and start sharing your memories right away.

My husband will hate it! He thought he could have my attention at least while we off the ship. 🤣

Just got back from Coco Cay last week internet availability is only with internet package.  The internet was very good the best of the entire cruise.

Unlike on the ship, there's lot less BW throttling on the island.

A friend was there two days ago and didn't have a Voom package.  It was working on CocoCay for them at no cost.  

 

My visits have always been with a Voom plan.  However I did note when I went to the ship my laptop in my room was still connected despite me logging in to Voom away from the ship on CocoCay on my phone.  I just wrote it off as ship that happens.  

 

It seems YMMV.

This ^^^^ ... Why would they possibly give it to you "free" if you don't have the Voom/internet package :classic_laugh:

Perhaps it was free in the beginning of "Perfect Day" either by mistake or for advertising purposes.

I also had a pkg, so I didn't log off.  Here are the speeds I recorded.

I do know that the last time I was there (end of October) it worked just fine without a VOOM package. Funny thing is that the network name that showed up on the island was still "Mariner-Wifi" like on the ship... Had full access to it all day long though.

I agree that the speeds certainly were better on the island than the ship.  We'll be back there next week on Navigator and while we have VOOM I'll try and do a check while not logged in and see what I come up with.

I had the complete opposite experience than others. It was due to location most likely.

We were in Cabana number 9 at Chill Island. We had no connectivity. 1 bar and it would fall out.
