Sounds great.
It's quite quick for a cruise ship.

I just enjoy it on the Caribbean Princess. The free minutes for elite was enough for me to check some mail daily. The Medallion service was great. I had the Medallion in my hand three doors away from my cabin and the door was unlocked when I got there.

Or the Crown.
After sailing on the sips with faster internet it felt like going back to a dial up connection.
