Hi

Anyone knows how this works.. is it actually a price per day for one device ? or you have several devices but one user ?

Doesn't make sense to me to pay per person..

Thanks

We found it all confusing as well. Hopefully someone with more knowledge will chime in, but from what we have been able to gather you are not really paying for a device but for a login. If you pay for one device you can connect any number of devices, but only one at a time - one login.

Further, our understanding is that you are identified on the ship's intranet as the passenger (user) associated with that login. So the pay per person would make sense (beyond just than making more money) if you want to have it clear who is who.

If you only intend to use the service to connect to the internet off the ship, you might be fine with one login. We use the service to communicate with each other on the ship (my wife isn't a gamer), so we get one "device" each for two people.

I hope this helps, and more importantly I hope it is right.

Anyone know more?

I don't know any more - this isn't the same package that was onboard last year. We got two devices each for two people - phone and laptop for both my wife and me since we have work to keep up with. We'll see how it works...
