We will be sailing on the inspiration in may with our kids and wondered if anyone knows if the nextels will work in the western caribean? We would like to lelt our 17 year old have his independance while still having away to get us or us get him also.
Any help on this would be great.
Kuki is right.....I have Sprint with the International calling plan and we used our phones in port for 99 cents a minute. I think we totalled around $50.00 in charges. Our DD was 18 on our last cruise and we never let her wander around without an older person with her. Things happen, especially in Jamaica. AND her purse was stolen on the pier in Cozumel with all ID, lots of cash and credit cards....her 27 year old brother was right there and no one saw a thing. You can never be too careful with your children in a foreign country whether it's a girl or boy.
On board, we made sure everyone had at least two buddies and checked in regularly. We left sticky notes and pens in the cabin. A quick note with the time and where they were heading was reassuring. We used the walkie talkies but other passengers may not enjoy listening to your conversations.
If you are going to walk on thin ice, you may as well dance!
