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*
