It depends on your provider if you have service. You will be hit up with roaming charges. Expect $2.50 a minute and .50 for each text.

Yes on most ships now. Your carrier determines the rates and you may have to be optioned for roaming and our internation usage for it to work.

Good question and good answer!

Smooth sailing,

P.S. Make sure you do NOT allow your teen to have the same cell phone access on the shp as they do at home -- you'll be in for a huge surprise when your bill comes!
