Mac users will feel right at home.
This computer lounge was Apple’s first outlet at sea, and 27 MacBook Pros are available for guest internet. Classes are also offered (at an additional charge). The lighting is fairly bright here, cast by wall-size screens marketing Apple products—it’s not a very relaxing place for web surfing, though we were told that some guests felt the signal was best in this part of the vessel, mid-ship Deck 6.
A small selection of Apple products is available for purchase, at prevailing prices—tax-free. As incentive to purchase the more expensive items, a complimentary Internet package is thrown in: Buy an 11-inch MacBook Air ($999) and earn 200 minutes of Internet (valued up to $150), etc.
WiFi on board was .75 per minute, though there were packages that brought the per-minute rate down (38 minutes for $24.95, 90 minutes for $49.95, etc.) along with specials that popped up one several days of the cruise that added bonus minutes to the packages.
