Fortunately, each port has a large internet and telephone cafe right by the dock...
How do you go about "turning on" international that already availbable on the phone or do you have to set it up with Cingular before you go? Also do you remember how expensive the intermnational roaming was? Thanks. 8)
It just comes on for me. I did not have to call or do anything with my phone. I was charged $1.99 + tax/minute.

They might offer a plan that you can get which has a lower rate. But I don't know if you can get it for 1 month and then turn it off.

Call and ask.
