I will be on this ship (our first cruise) with my 14-yr old son, Eric. We're REALLY excited...the ship is going to be backed, though. Carnival says 2,666 will be on board. We're staying on Deck 4 (no room # yet, hoping to upgrade to ocean view, but not likely). Do cell phones work at all on these ships?
Yvonne, If that many are going to be on this ship, someone has got to sleep in the life boat, It only holds 2052. Your cell phone should work in the port at Galveston, but before you leave the area, you will loose reception.
Just now read your response. I would love to meet up on the ship. We are a family of four... Me, Hubby, two sons (2 & 6) from Oklahoma City. First time for the kids and we have been on four cruises so far. Let me know when and where! Take care!
