Caribbean cruise playing SWGOH. Wi-Fi good enough?

Hey guys,

Anyone with any experience? Please mention which company you went with. Was the Wi-Fi good enough to play the game?

Thanks cruise and SWGOH lovers! 😘

  • Disney Cruise WiFi is too expense. But was good to disconnect for a week. My guild understood.
  • On Norwegian it was too expensive as well, but my data plan included Mexico so I could check in then
  • Yah Cruise line can be really expensive so check that out before you try to play. I would guess the network is equivalent to 3G speeds though
  • I took a Carnival cruise a couple of years ago. WiFi was insanely expensive - like $50 a day or something for some very limited speed. I passed.
  • It'd be cheaper to just buy crystals in-game to get whatever you miss while you're away. Cruise WiFi is expensive and usually pretty bad anyway.

    Regardless, unplug and enjoy the cruise! This game will be here when you get back. A few days away from the game is good for anyone.

    Yes. Norwegian and Royal Caribbean (though I wasn’t actually going to the Caribbean for the latter). I did go with the higher speed option on RC.
  • I bought the top wifi on my last family cruise that I believe was carnival, and it was awful. I was barely able to run a single raid, I had to sit in the middle of the casino for the best wifi

    With Royal Carribbean last January I got the faster option, and had no issues. Just remember to put your phone on airplane mode and only allow wifi to avoid ridiculous charges.
  • Buy the unlimited booze and upgraded restaurant packages instead and ignore your device, more fun that way.

  • Disconnect and enjoy the trip man, you won't miss much.

    OP, don't listen to all this "disconnect" and "enjoy your family" talk. This trip may cost you a Legendary if you can't log in!

    Because you can get fat and drunk at home while staring at your device, staring at your device while on a cruise seems like missing the point to me.

    So skip the cruise?
  • Anyone who says to just disconnect and enjoy the cruise obviously hasn’t been on a cruise before. There is A decent amount of downtime and sometimes it’s great to just sit on the deck in front of the ocean and play your favorite game.

  • If you buy the wifi ahead of time on their website it'll be cheaper. And you can check regularly for sales, they come and go. Got a buy 1, get 1 @50% off drink package last week.

    This was my strategy for my last two trips and it worked out great. I just considered the extra $100 of crystals as per of the vacation budget, and left my phone off the whole time. It was a great feeling.

  • I received some WiFi hours from a friend that had connections with Norwegian when I took my cruise, which helped. The cost of WiFi is crazy. You can find WiFi in ports. Just ask your guild to understand - life should come before a game 😁

    Sure, until the day after you leave they announce an event and you miss a character that you were ready for because you were disconnected.
