Default Phone Calls form Ship

What is the status of making phone calls from the ship? Im sure it is pretty expensive, but is it possible and any ideas how expensive? Thanks!

Its very expensive, best bet is to wait to get into a port and then use the phone,
or find an internet cafe and send an e-mail. We've found these nice cafe's all over the caribbean, and at a resonable price too.

It is much better to wait until port because the charges are $10 a minute to the United States and Canada.

Our son had to call us when we were on the Elation (due to a death in the family). The charge to our sign and sail card was $21.00. I do have to say, that in an emergency, it was wonderful to be able to phone home. I wouldn't plan on using the phones to chat on though. Bon Voyage.

It's around $15 per minute to call from a ship. The reason it's so high is that the ship uses satellite time for calls. Do what the crew does -- run to a pay phone on the pier and call with your calling card. You'll find public phones everywhere.
