When you're at sea, you'll be too far away to get a signal. You'll have varying degrees of success in port depending on your company. We had 2 verizon phones and had good signal in Juneau, Seward, and the Anchorage area. We had nothing in Skagway and very infrequent connection in Ketchikan. Others have reported better luck with the same company.

No you won't have any signal even a couple miles out of ports.
