Internet & email access 

Internet access is available on all P&O Cruises ships at our onboard Internet stations (charges apply). You can use our computer systems to access your web-based email account, or browse the Internet for world news and sports.

Wireless Internet is also available in most of the public areas onboard. Guests who subscribe to email services from an Internet Service Provider (ISP) are advised to verify their ISP has a web-mail viewing site prior to sailing. Most major ISPs have websites that allow mail access via a web browser using an email address and password.

Please contact Reception for information regarding the charges that apply to Internet and wireless services, the hours of operation and any other specific requirements. Internet access is not guaranteed at all times due to the nature of satellite communications, which are subject to disruption from weather and obstructions. Connection speed may also be slower than on shore.
