Three cheers for Orion Expedition Cruises! Orion II is the first ship I've been on in a long time that provides fast and reliable Internet service—and we're way out here in Borneo!
Orion doesn't use MTN (one of the main providers of Internet and other communication services at sea). Instead this cruise line is using PatronSoft.
There are two packages—one-hour and two-hour blocks of time—that are reasonably priced. Two hours of Internet service costs $50 (Australian dollars).
Thank you, Orion, for understanding that travelers want—and need—to be in touch via the Internet while on a cruise ship!
