Cannot stress enough the importance of Airplane mode when travelling in general, but especially on cruises. As much as I like getting away from it all, I think one of the reasons I liked USVI and PR was that I had full Sprint 3g coverage when I was there. After 2 sea days, it was nice to call and chit chat with my mother. And in PR, I was able to call a coworker originally from there to get some ideas on where to eat near the port. Of course she suggest Senior Frogs. *ugh*

Past cruises:

Disney Dream - Dec 2013 4n Bahamas
Disney Dream - Dec 2012 4n Bahamas
Carnival Imagination - Dec 2011 4n Western
Carnival Imagination - Nov 2010 4n Western
Costa Atlantica - Dec 2009 7n Eastern
