Default cell phones, laptops

We'll be sailing on the Conquest (Carnival) Jamaica, Grand Caymen & Cozumel. We have 2 older teens & use our cell phones (Verizon) to stay in touch. Will they work on the ship or in any of the ports? How about our laptop, wireless? Will it cost a lot to go online? Techies, afloat!

Yes you will need to pay for internet access even with wireless hookup ..watch the carnival capers for extra minute specials.

Regarding your cell phones I'm not sure...I'd call your wireless company and ask

Have Fun!

I used mine while on my balcony on the ship and it came out to a $1.00 a minute. Verizon Wireless. Perfect Reception

there are no cell towers in the middle of the Caribbean. You will only get service when you get close to an island that has service. Call your provider to find out if you have service and if the islands are in your home calling area, if not you could be paying whopping roaming charges.
