    My brother and I want to take the 2019 Eastward Panama Canal and would like to take our niece along. It is during school time but she is home schooled. How much would it cost for web access on the ship for 2 weeks so she can do her classes online?

    Ahoy, Cheryl!

    It is WONDERful to hEAR from you again. You must be so excited at the thought of embarking on another Panama Canal sailing in 2019! This cruise is on my Disney Cruise Line bucket list, and I'm hoping to check it off my list in the near future. 

    Cheryl, I'm sure your niece is looking forward to traveling on this special voyage with her aunt and uncle. What a lucky girl! My daughter is also homeschooled, and it is so nice to have the flexibility to experience vacations throughout the year. As she's gotten older, the internet has become an important resource to keep up with her studies if we do travel during the school year. We usually purchase a Connect@Sea Package when we sail, so I'm happy to fill you in on all the details. Currently, each package allows you to pay for a set amount of megabytes ranging from pay-as-you-go (25 cents per MB) up to a large package with 1,000 MB for around $90.00. As it works now, you can purchase a package and upgrade to another one at any time if you need more. Since you are looking into a 2019 cruise, I recommend checking back with us a little closer to your sail date for any Connect@Sea changes.

    Once you are aboard, I highly recommend stopping by the Connect@Sea Desk for some tips on how to maximize your package. There are a few Settings that your niece may want to adjust to make sure she's not consuming the megabytes too quickly. Also, you should ask for the best spots for connectivity on the ship as the internet does run a bit slower at sea. 

    It was a pleasure assisting you again, Cheryl. We hope you'll sail back over to "sea" us as you continue to plan for your magical voyage!
