    WiFi on Cruise ships are expensive...and buying 4 hours worth can buy you a 3day carnival cruise, Lol (Though I've never been on that line so I could be wrong, but from my experience they are SUPER slow and crazy priced.)

    SUPER EPIC TOUCHDOWN FAIL OF ALL TIME

    Next time you go on a short cruise make sure you book when the team is playing monday night. That way ifyou get back in the morning you'll be set.

    Ozzy rules!!

    I was on a Disney cruise last Sunday at Port Canaveral.
    Boarded at noon and went straight to the pub. Phins-Pats was on. Phins won and the next 4 days were paradise.
    If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

    Check on Cruise critic and see if anyone on the ship in the last month remembers what the home market for the on board channels are, I was on the Carnival Breeze at Thanksgiving and they were showing Miami TV... To bad the Dolphins couldn't stop the Panthers last drive... Ruined an otherwise perfect cruise!

    I believe it would be IP locked to the US, but there are a few programs one could use to adjust the IP address. Just not sure how it will work since the cruise liner is not stationary.

    The packages sold these days aren't to expensive. It is of course in the eye of the beholder. The bigger problem is the connection.

    OP is on a 7-Night Eastern Caribbean cruise across the holidays. No shorty. And not cheap either.

    That's why I was asking what ship he was on. If he would sail the Pearl on Sunday his changes to have the local CBS while in port would have been big. Worst case scenario he could check-in, grab a cap and watch the game in a local bar and board the ship right after.

    The Epic sails on Saturday though and he will be in the Florida straights between Florida and the San Juan in the middle of nowhere depending on the ships satellite feed.

    It is slow. It works for email and regular browsing. Once you try to stream or receive streams you will be cut off frequently while the receivers adjust to the position.

    Oh don't send him there. Those people can be more vicious than football fans. He will get this "shut up and enjoy your cruise" probably plenty and in different versions.

    You'll need an internet connection which you can pay for on the ship. The ships internet is satellite and generally is only good for email and quick checks of scores. The fee for access is ridiculous regardless of what cruise line you take. I'd guess 3-4 hours of internet (about time of game) would cost you $100 plus and you streaming will clock out endlessly even if you do access the game.

    My advise...DVR it and watch it when you get back. Pretty sure you'll be able to find other things to fill your time. NCL has some pretty damn good entertainment options and I've been on the majority of cruise lines.

    This may help:

    ill be heading out on Carnival Conquest this Sunday. Each year we go for a holiday when the fins are playing. Head to the sports bar on the cruise or the casino with TVs. Ive slid the bar tender $20 to change it to the fins game if they didn't or "couldn't" put it on. Sometimes the ships satellites aren't aligned to get the game. 3 yrs ago when we had the thanksgiving game I remember a bunch of Dol-fans flooding the bar for the cowboys game on thanksgiving. They called an engineer to do something with the ships dishes and had the game on within 10-15 minutes. It wasn't in HD but it was on. We lost.

    Can confirm what everyone says about ship internet. It is satellite and streaming will be so god awful slow due to buffering it wouldn't work. I usually buy internet and bill my office as an expense. Its slow... almost dialup slow at times. If its cloudy forget it.

    Just enjoy the cruise. We are playing Barfalo. You can find out what happened off the internet or when you get home. Just put the game out of your mind and focus on the MILF's around the pool.
