Is internet available at my trip hotels or on my ship?

Cell phone and data service availability varies by destination as outlined in your Travel Planner. Most of our hotels have internet access, although the connection may be slower than ideal. 

On our Active Cruises, internet availability and cellular service vary depending on itinerary, ship and access to coverage. While some ships include complimentary wireless internet, Backroads may provide a certain amount of internet access, after which you can purchase additional wi-fi directly from the ship. Wireless connections may be slower than ideal or temporarily unavailable depending on the ship’s location. On trips in South America, internet connection is only available when the ship is docked, between about 6-9 p.m. and 6 a.m., and even then, it can be slow and unreliable.
