Good morning Alex. You have a choice. Whatever you choose you will first need to register for an internet account using your 'onboard account card'at the internet centre. During this process you can opt to use your laptop via the ships wifi system or just use the computers in the internet centre. There are plenty of clear instructions. As regards buying a package, yes this is the best way to do it. Various time based packages will be displayed on your registration screen. A two hour package costs $49 and a four hour package $89. If you have membership of Cunard's World Club gold or platinum some of these packages are complimentary. Regards, Richard.

Do you know if the same system applies on the QM2?

Good morning from QM2 one day out from Auckland. The system is better on QM2. The wifi areas extend almost throughout the shipand I use mine regularly in the stateroom. Package prices are the same though if you are a Cunard World Club member there is a free package of 2/4/8 hours depending on your membership level. You will first need to register at the 'connections' internet centre deck2 fwd. Do it day one because there is usually a 20 minute bonus that day.Depending what time of day you log on speeds can be very good. Early morning, 7-9am is almost home speeds. Hope this helps. Happy cruising. Richard.

As the Caribbean start to put their selves back together after the devastating hurricanes of Irma and Maria, now the UK is getting a taste of the same weather in the form of Hurricane Ophelia. Currently battering Ireland and causing extremely weird sun and skies across England, we hope that all keep safe and sound during these strong weather incidents.Many years ago I was caught up in a hurricane in the Dominican Republic, I was in the north of the Island in the Puerto Plata area and I can te...
