Default Shortwave radio

Has anyone used their shortwave radio on their cruise? Good results?
Thanks.

I took a licensed handheld transceiver that doubles as a scanner aboard Sensation. I used it to monitor ship traffic before boarding. Got so busy while aboard, I didn't even turn it on.

A small shortwave receiver should be no problem. However, some countries have communication laws that prohibit them, or charge tariffs for bringing them ashore. If you take it, leave it on the ship during shore trips. Email me if you need more specific information, such as marine frequencies. I'll tell you what I can.

I'd be interested in hearing what folks monitor via the Scanner on the Cruise. ie: Frequencies.
