Does anyone know if theses devices will work on a cruise ship.

You will find that perhaps the Cruise ship would provide those facilities (perhaps) Ask the cruise ship contacts.

Thought that I read somewhere that if you wanted Wifi on board you had to pay for it.

I would expect that it would not be free, but..........

Apparently it's satellite internet WiFi. Most major cruise operators supply Wi-Fi on a pay-as-you-browse basis and it costs and can be patchy, more details from the Telegraph clickhere

Yes they will work on a cruise ship, find the passenger wifi in your settings and log on, you will be taken to the home page and have to register, usually using your cabin and name, you will then be asked to chose a price plan, which one you chose will be up to you, when you register you will be asked for a password and will use your cabin number and password to ologin after that. As has been sid it is not cheap but most cruise lines do have happy hours where you can get free minutes. I take my Tablet ob cruises and log on a few times

Perhaps you're thinking of something else but a mobile WiFi device (AKA "MiFi") is a compact wireless router that gets its Internet from a SIM card and a connection to a mobile network. Here's one:

There'll be no mobile signal at sea so it won't be able to get an Internet connection.
