I know you were reading my Virtual cruise reports from the Sapphire Princess, so I'm surprised you missed that in my reports.

I ABSOLUTELY AGREE, the ships should publicize this in the "dailys"! And I said so.

On my last cruise on Crystal, once I heard my mother was ill, I had to leave the phone on. My bill for the few days was in the hundreds of dollars, but I had no choice.
Now we understand we probaly did read about it in your posts it probaly just slipped our minds. We were pretty excited first cruise and all just a lesson learned and we will know better next time Not the end of the world. I think I would just like to leve all our phones at home next time I hate phones.
