What to Expect at Sea

Stay connected in all of our terminals with free Wi-Fi through Bell Aliant hot spots. Complimentary Wi-Fi is also available on board all four of our vessels on the Port aux Basques <-> North Sydney route.

Depending on your service provider, cellular signal and network connections are available for a significant portion of our Port aux Basques <-> North Sydney route. Cellular signal and network connections are greatly reduced or non-existent on the Argentia <-> North Sydney route.

To avail of the complimentary Wi-Fi on the Port aux Basques <-> North Sydney route, simply visit deck 7 on the MV Atlantic Vision, MV Blue Puttees and MV Highlanders and deck 5 on the MV Leif Ericson, and connect to the network MA-WiFi. Video streaming and other select sites may be blocked due to the amount of bandwidth required. For those passengers wanting to access videos during the crossing, we recommend you download your favourite shows, movies, or games to your device in advance.

You can also visit one of our comfortable passenger lounges to watch our large screen TVs, or watch TV in your cabin. For more information, check out our in-cabin amenities and offerings, or ask a Reservations Agent.
