Verizon 3G Card Usage
 
I was thinking about bringing my Verizon 3G internet card for my laptop on an Eastern Caribbean cruise I'm going on this Sunday. Does anyone have an stories (bad or good) about if they work? I just think the prices they charge for the internet cafe are astronomical.

DO.NOT.DO.IT!

I cannot stress this enough! Verizon aircards use cell phone towers, thus when you are international waters 1. you will not have service and 2. when you are in port, you will be roaming. Roaming fees are as crazy as they are for cell phones.

It would be much cheaper to use the boat internet

To be exact, it is $20.48/mb to use the verizon card
