We'll be traveling to Alaska on the Regal Princess. What is the least expensive way to contact our children back home. Or for them to contact us? Can you text message from California, & recieve it on the ship? Email? Do your phones work in Alaska very well? Please help, I really have no idea & would appreciate any help at all.
Email is great, although a big more expensive than for your home. When you need to check on kids, elderly parents, etc. it is well worth what you pay. We were able to use cell phones in Alaska with no problem, but check with your cellular provider.
You need to have a signal for your phones to work. Only when you are close enough to shore and there is a cell tower close by will you have one and it needs to be one that your provider uses. Contact your provider for a map of coverage.
