depending on your service, you will get a signal. Just a heads up, its roaming charges. It can get real expensive to use the cell.

The simple answer is: Yes

All major providers have agreements with Sea Mobile who provides the cellular service for ALL of the major cruiselines.

Just remember you will have roaming charges and the minimum 1.95/minute fee imposed by the cruise line.

Take care,
Mike

being that i own a business and need to be able to be reached if an emergency comes about...obviously dont answer the phone if you dont need to...but someone in my position needs to be reachable if needed.
Worked great for me over new years on the independence of the seas...

Thanks for all you're help....
