Can I access the internet on board?

All of our ships are Wi-Fi enabled so you can access the internet on your own devices or via our PC terminals in the Library. Satellite internet packages are available to purchase pre cruise or once on board. Pay per day is available to purchase once on board.

You can also use your roaming partner - when near shore - or the Telenor Maritime network - when at sea. Charges for these connections will be added to your mobile bill rather than your on-board account. Please contact your normal service provider for data allowance and costs.

Calling home

Most people find their mobiles work well at sea. Signal strength can vary a bit, but you should be able to do all the usual things – make and receive calls, send text messages and photos.

You will see Telenor Maritime or 90112 on your mobile’s display. This means you are using International Marine Roaming and the cost of making and receiving calls and texts will be added to your mobile bill, not your ship account.

Your service provider should be able to give you a breakdown of all charges. Please note that charges for "pay as you go" can vary to those of contract phones on the same network.
Due to the ship’s location, there may be occasions where your phone is unable to find a signal.

We are happy to offer a full 3G service on board Britannia.

Skype and video calling connections

These services are available with the Ultimate package, however please be aware that unpredictable satellite connectivity can impact the quality of the service. 

Free internet for guests with disabilities or care requirements

Guests requesting free internet on board to manage their health condition or for an accessibility requirement related to their disability will be entitled to 1 x 100 minute Internet Voucher for each 7 days upon request at point of booking or from prior to their cruise.
