Yes ,if you have Cingular, ( not sure about any other carriers )you can use your cell phone while at sea. Its called Cingular @ sea. Its cheaper than using the ship phone, but its still high. A 3-minute phone call will cost you about $10.00. All Carnival ships have it.

Also, when we where in St. Thomas in May, I used my cell phone while in port . And the best part was, no additional charges where on my cell bill.
We have a good friend of ours thats on the Glory this week. From our last report, there having the time of there life You should have a wonderful cruise on the Glory.
Happy Sailing;
David

I have T-Mobile and was able to use my phone in all of the ports (St. Thomas, St. Martin, Barbados, Aruba, Peurto Rico) Just make sure you have international roaming turned on. I did not any any signal on the ship for phone calls, but every once in awhile an email would come across my blackberry, even at sea.
