OK, removed over 300 off-topic and random posts.

Moved the discussion about being the "first" cruise to its own thread here.

Moved the discussion about freeloading on kosher cruises to the existing thread on that topic here.

And PenguinBOT can now officially retire.

How was the wifi onboard the Antarctica cruise ship? super slow, regular, shotty at times? looking to do Antarctica in the future but wifi is important for the business. I'm assuming cell phone service is out of the question?!

Thanks-

Was much better than airline wifi, though it did go down from time to time. Cell phone VOIP/video chat worked fine.

I emailed AA that the wifi I paid on the flight was worse then the ship and got a refund (I seriously had issues with the WiFi on the flight)

The ship got 4Mbps that was shared with everyone

Regarding if it's important for your work, the program didn't give me 10 minutes to work, except maybe Tuesday

Ship wifi was much more than I expected for basic, non-data-intensive usage. Even better was that the $10 24-hour code never managed to expire and lasted me the entire trip!

Those who needed more reliable connectivity brought satellite phones on the trip, which I think rent for about $5 a day plus $.50 a minute for calls.

More like $1.89 per minute plus only works outside with a clear sky
