P&O Cruises WiFi Packages - How much do they cost?

We cruised on the Iona on one of the first cruises from the UK following the pandemic in August 2021 and on Aurora in May 2024. While some people like to disconnect while at sea, we like to stay connected so we can share our experiences.

There are two WiFi packages you can buy on board and the details of these are included below. We also let you know if we think purchasing one of these packages is good value or not.

The Essential WiFi Package

The Essential Wifi Package £18 per day (pay as you go) or £12 per when booked for the entire cruise

Best for Web browsing, Emails, Social Media and Texts Messages excluding video.

The Ultimate WiFi Package

The Ultimate Wifi Package £24 per day (pay as you go) or £18 per day when booked for the entire cruise

This package includes all of the Essential package plus  Social Media  including video, Texts and Images, Music and Video streaming and Voice and Video calls.

How to connect to the P&O WiFi Packages

Once on board, just log on to the ship’s Wi-­Fi to get connected. Almost any device that can connect to Wi-­Fi can be used on board their ships. Make sure that the Wi-­Fi is turned on and then connect to the ship’s Wi-­Fi network, which should show up automatically.

How good is the WiFi connection on P&O Aurora?

P&O state that ‘It’s worth bearing in mind that satellite internet will be slower than browsing at home as the signals have to travel thousands of miles to reach the satellites in space. Weather and the ship’s position can also occasionally impact on the signal. We do our best to manage the connections, however speed will vary and intensive activities like streaming content may not work at all times or may be excluded from certain plans’.

We found that the WiFi connection on board Aurora especially when you consider that its the oldest ship in the fleet was good throughout our cruise and is a vast improvement on what we experienced on Iona just 12 months ago.

Value for money is definitely in the eye of the beholder and even though P&O’s wifi is not cheap it did allow us to do everything we  needed to, so for us it was worth the money.
