I voted Yes but only in cabins. I figure in case of emergencies. The rest of the time, people should be away and relax. IMHO

Life is too short to let the ship of your dreams sail without you.

I voted the last option, in cabin only. Lucky for all of us my European cellphone does not work in the Caribean, it is a nice travel alarmclock
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

You betcha, especially when the ships charge an outrageous fee to use their ship to shore service, but yes, cell phone free zones would be good too!

I voted in cabin only, but my brother is an MD and even on vacation with other doctors covering for him, he must be reachable. When he cruises he keeps his cell with him, but on vibrate, lets it go to VM, then immediately goes somewhere private to call back. In some professions, you must be on call all the time..

Only in certain areas. No need to open up the dining rooms, lounges, etc. to phones.

NO, I cruise to get away from cell phones, and pagers. If there is an emergency, my family and company know how to get in touch with me, and I don't need to bother other cruisers with cell phone conversations.
