Everything was great except on-board internet

5 Jul 2016

This was an excellent route with an excellent guide for each day’s biking, and a very sensible modus operandi for finding the boat again at the end of the day–or alternatively not biking if you decide to take a day off. Each day was special, most of the towns we visited were memorable, and the landscape–although all a variation on dikes, polders, woodlots and the enicrcling sea–was often stunning. A few things to keep in mind–sometimes you will be cycling into the wind and/or rain. The many bikestores along the route sell a three euro disposable punch that will get you through a downpour. If the weather forecast for your chosen week looks adverse, think about renting an e-bike rather than a regular bike. An e-bike enables you to speed anywhere you want, regardless of the weather, but also unfortunately means less exercise. My only complaint is that the free wifi on board was so limited that my laptop exhausted it in 10 minutes or less each night. I don’t think it was working the way it was supposed to, but the crew had no solutions. Basically, they want you to pay for adequate wifi. If I was the company budgeting for next year, I would subtract a bit from the dinners–the quantity of food served was often overwhelming–and put the savings into free unlimited internet.

Thank you very much for your review. Because wi-fi on board is through the mobile phone network (like on your cell phone), and not through a “regular” cable connection, the amount of free data has to be limited. Each day, each guest receives 100 Mb free for each device. If a larger amount of data is needed, this can be purchased immediately online.
