Carnival offers lower Interrnet rates

As all of the cruise lines try to find ways to help keep their guests connected while at sea, Carnival Cruise Line is giving passengers the opportunity to save money by pre-purchasing their internet package. By heading to the Manage My Bookingtab on, guests can pick the package that works best for them and pay a cheaper rate.

Buy early and save

How much you pay — and how much you save — will depend on which of the three available packages you purchase. We recently looked at pricing for an upcoming sailing on the Carnival Breeze and noted the following prepaid rates.

$4 per day for Social ($5 per day onboard) $10.25 per day for Value ($16 per day onboard) $14.88 per day for Premium ($25 per day onboard)

The difference between the internet packages: Social – Offers access to sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Linkedin, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, SnapChat and popular airline websites. Value – Provides access to a wide variety of sites and apps, including social media, e-mail, news, sports, weather, banking and more. Premium – Promises the fastest possible connection and includes access to all websites and apps, including some streaming video services.

Note: The Carnival Hub app does not require a purchase of an internet plan.

When you prepay for your internet, you must do it for the entire voyage. It should also be noted that only one device can be logged on at a time per plan.

Prepaid internet packages are available on all Carnival Cruise Line ships with the exception of Australia-based Carnival Spirit.

Thank you for the up-date. My DH may find this interesting, but I prefer to turn it all off! Surprised

Good news!

Pink, I leave my phone on for the alarm but it's in airplane mode.

Looks like my post disappeared!? I think the gremlins got me! We have a travel alarm clock that we take.

Better pricing for internet access is always appreciated!

Can confirm that I'm now offered these lower prices listed above when I check my Cruise Manager on Carnival's website, and go into the Fun Shops for my August 12th sailing of the Freedom.

A crying shame people are so important that they got to be on the internet on their vacation. What would they do back in the day when there was no internet? Send smoke signals?

I keep my phone on airplane mode while cruising, but might check emails if the Internet is free in the ports.

I'm on vacation to escape the real world, why would I want internet to be connected to reality ???

I'll agree with BonMike, if I happen to find a cafe with free internet I may check e-mail or send a photo to rub it into those working that I'm on a cruise.

If I wanted to spend all day on social media I can do that at home for free, I'm paying for the ocean view, ocean breeze and enjoyment of a cruise ship not to miss that to stare at a computer.

Thanks for posting this! I like to unplug when on a cruise, but I teach online classes and have to check my email every 48 hours during weekdays in order to fulfill my obligations to my students. I have a strict no posting rule while we are out of town. No pics, no nothing on open social media. I try to stop by here for a second while the work email and Learning Management System is opening up to say "Howdy", but at times that does not happen. Brian
