Default walkie talkies

just wondering how well they work on the ship...because I know our 13 year old will not want to spend EVERY moment with us ! I would feel more at ease if I know I can still be in contact with him. Has anyone used them on the ship? Any advice or ideas are welcome!

They were all over the place on the Paradise when we went in Feb. To the point people were complaining about finding a clear channel.
If you do use them make sure to remind everyone to put them on silent mode when in the dining room and during the shows. That was a problem on our sailing.
They rent them on the ship too.

We used them with the couple we went with in August on the Imagination, they worked good! We did get some guy wanting to meet with my sister in law though!!

You can buy them at Wal-mart for around $30 a pair. Get the kind which have sub-channels though so you can program them to frequencies others are not able to get. They work great outdoors but are limited in the interior of the ship because of all the metal between the radios. I was able to talk to our travel mates when standing in the middle of the ship at the elevators when they were in their room on the port side but not when we were in our starboard room and they in their room.

Outdoors they have a 2 mile range and further when standing on the top deck. Very nice to have when in port too.

In Nassau, I had to stay on the ship with a sick child. My husband and other kids took one of the radios with them and I could talk to them almost the entire time they were on the island. They worked better there than on the ship!

I would advise putting names/cabin numbers on them. My kids kept leaving them in the arcade, etc.
