Will I be able to e-mail, fax, mail letters or postcards, or make phone calls from the ships? Is the Internet accessible on the ships?
Most of our vessels have facilities for incoming and outgoing e-mails, faxes, and telephone calls. However, passengers are charged for all such communications, which can be expensive. On a few of the ships, e-mail accounts are set-up once you are onboard and are part of the ship e-mail system (Internet access is not available on these ships). On other ships, you are able to access the Internet and e-mail accounts such as Gmail, Hotmail, and Yahoo. Before you depart on one of our expeditions, you will receive pre-departure material that outlines what services your specific ship offers. You can mail letters and postcards by placing them in a mailbox on the ship. The ship pursuer then posts it for you and charges your room for the cost of the postage. However, mail can only be sent when the ship is at a port with mail facilities.
