Is there a place on the ship to get Financial news, I.E Stock market.?

I have seen banners on NCL in the Internet cafe if memory serves me correctly. Some ships print out some papers with news. Usually find those at the front desk.

Depends on the cruise line but NCL does have CNN abd BBC on the tv and they do give the stock reports

I guess one can stay in contact with business happenings through the purchase of an Internet package.

This is good to hear.

Some ships do dial in one of the cable news business channels.  But not all the time.

I know on Regent if you are a "Gold" or higher in their Seven Seas Society, you receive "your choice of newspaper service from papers around the world". They had quite a long list of papers you could choose from. That is one per day per Gold member. Our neighbor’s last cruise followed the markets close and got the Wall St. Journal. We select the NYTs.

  

 

None of that on NCL...and the BBC is truly British, not the Americanized version..and CNN financials are centered on the occasional report on the "big boys"......but if you're looking for actual stock prices, forget it.  for that you'll need to BUY an internet package...which you can stare at for...well..quite awhile, if its working.   Not a popular response, but true. If you think you have some issues that need "tending", cruising may not be the best way to do it.  I make sure the positions I own can manage for themselves for a week or 10 days. When the ship returns to a port, you can access things in an internet café, or restaurant, or perhaps your cell, but then you have to decide if its secure enough...generally not recommended...look at it this way...you can have a world of surprises waiting when you go ashore...

 

Ships do have newsletter with yesterday's financial information in them.  You can request one be delivered to your cabin or pick one up in public areas like the front desk or the buffet.  Also you can get information on TV.
