Default cell phones

Don't know if this is a dumb question but here goes... Going on my first cruise this Sept. - Carnival Paradise. Do cell phones work on the ship? If not, is there a "ship phone" that someone from home could call in case of an emergency?

Cell phones will not work when away from the ports, and then depending on the service you have may not work in any port other than U.S. ports. Satellite phones will work though. The ships have phones for ship-to-shore service but they are terribly expensive to use..........something like $7 per minute. In your cruise documents will be a number for you to distribute to friends and families to get in touch with you if there is an emergency.

Regards,
Thomas

thank you Thomas! Very helpful. When do they actually send you the cruise documents? We booked about 6 weeks ago, but we don't actually leave until Sept. 7. Thanks.

I just received my docs this week and we sail on June 15th. I've gotten them 4 weeks in advance to 1 week in advance. I know it seems like a long time to wait, and if you are getting close to your sailing date and don't have documents it can be scary, but you will get them in time.

Regards,
Thomas
