Wi fi for Windows OS is available at $28 per hour. Speeds are constantly reported as very slow & as is the RCI online cafe. Most people use an internet cafe when ashore for cost reasons.......Wilba.

Networking protocols are independent of operating systems so a laptop running Linux should be able to connect as well as one running Windows. If Royal Caribbean say otherwise I suggest it's because their staff aren't qualified to help users of other OSs with the inevitable problems associated with wireless access!

RCI state Windows OS required but make no other distinctions, so who knows? With the high charges, I for one would need a damn good reason to haul a Laptop on a cruise....Regards Wilba.

Most ships onboard computers systems lock out any internet phone provider and the slow speeds make it useless.
