I am travelling with my granddaughter and would like to stay in touch with her mother while we are away. Cell service is not an option since I have a pay as you go plan. I would like to email from the ship and was reviewing the prices. Can anyone tell me what the $3.95 fee is for? I assumed I could just access my email account through comcast and only be charged for the internet service. See below. $0.75 USD per minute pay as you go $27.50 USD for 50 minute plan ($0.55 per minute) $40 USD for 100 minute plan ($0.40 per minute) $75 USD for 250 minute plan ($0.30 per minute) Onboard Email Account There is an additional charge of $3.95 USD to send an e-mail from your onboard ship e-mail account. There is no charge to receive an e-mail from your onboard e-mail account.
