Do you think you are going to get free internet access? Don't be naive. This ship is trying to make money and not provide any services that you are not paying for in some way. They keep the initial cost down by adding on additional services later on. Nothing like having a captive audiance to be able to charge high fees for what you would think would be a standard service. Forget about your email and screw Holland America.
