Wi-Fi

River Cruise Guides

You want to stay connected and can't put down your phone, tablet or laptop, so what facilities can you find on your river cruise ship? Whilst most river cruise ships have Wi-Fi access, there could be some blackout spots where connecting to the internet could be quite the challenge. As ships are made of steel, the signal you receive may not always be the best, so a repositioning yourself may be your best bet. Furthermore, as the internet you use is via satellite there may be times when it is down.
The Wi-Fi you receive on your river cruise ship is not as fast as your Wi-Fi at home and there are probably more people connected to it all at once too. To combat slow speeds, on some ships certain software is not permitted to be used such as Skype, a VPN or online gaming. Each ship will vary on which software you can and can’t use – so make sure you check before you cruise!
