Default how much to rent walkie talkies (does Sensation have them)

I have not heard nor seen any rentals on the ships. Gosh, they cost as low as $10.00 each to buy.

I bought a set today at best buy for $30. 12 mile range, I was told these should work pretty well on a ship. don't plan to use them very much though but they will be handy for the few times we do

They take up more room than 5 sheets of paper.

I guess I can see getting those for children, but I just have to ask. Are there adults w/o children who take those and use them ?

Bobby- The wife and I take ours. They work well from one end of the ship to the other. Inside and on outside decks.

Michelle- Wow 12 mile range You go girl. You can use them on and off the ship. Ours is only good for 4-mile range. Great choice.

I guess they can come in handy especially with smaller children on board with a seperation anxiety issue. notes left in the cabin to the better half worked for me, ( no children under 18 any longer) However I can invision them becoming a nuisance to other passengers., ie. cell phones.

I don't know if this would apply to the OP, but camp carnival provides free pagers to parents of children 5 yrs. and younger.
