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.

I know that some people need to stay connected while on vacation. I know my TA has responded to my enquiries while cruising.

For me, though, I unplug as quickly as possible.

I plan to get the social package simply for connecting with our parents while we are away. We are taking our kids with us, our mom's tend to worry so going days without hearing from us when we are out of the country will worry then unnecessarily. I don't care about emails or anything else so I plan to use the social options to check in with our mom's & then will have roaming on my phone for ports so I can send a pic or two.

In the port area, look for guys in different colored coveralls with iPADs because they'll know where the WiFi is that might be open.

I did the roaming thing on my first cruise and paid a very hefty price.
