Books in the Queen Mary 2's library
Luckily for us, cruise ships these days understand that their passengers want to update their Facebook status to say "I'm on a boat!" The Queen Mary 2 offers wired and wireless connections in the rooms, as well as in the ship's library. We stopped by this library and noted the charges for at-sea WiFi:
Holy Poseidon's trident! $0.75 cents per minute? At least they have options like the "Diamond" plan, which gets you 8 hours of internet for $167.95. But just when we want to complain and shake our fists, saying "$170 for a day of the internet?! That's like four months of internet at home," we remember that waitthis internet is in the middle of the ocean. It's like a freaking miracle; Guglielmo Marconi would crap himself if he knew about at-sea WiFi.
What do you think? Is this too expensive for internet access on board a ship? Would you buy a plan or pay per minute?
