What to Expect at Sea

Stay connected in all of our terminals with free Wi-Fi through Bell Aliant hot spots. 

While on board, cellular signal and network connections are available for a significant portion of our Port aux Basques <-> North Sydney route, depending on your service provider; however, these connections are significantly reduced or non-existent on the Argentia <-> North Sydney route.

No Wi-Fi? No worries! There’s plenty of time to be online when you’re off the water — but we think your journey is the ideal time to kick back, relax, and make memories that will last a lifetime with your fellow travellers. Of course, if you think the crossing with Marine Atlantic is the perfect opportunity to catch up on your favourite shows, movies, or games, that’s okay with us! We just suggest that you download your latest binge-worthy media 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.
