Default Phone Calls

Hi all!

I'm cruising for the first time, leaving this Thursday! EEK!

We are leaving our 2 year old daughter for the first time and I would like to know that I can call home at least once a day. Can anyone tell me how phone calls work on Carnival Fantasy? Will I need a calling card? Will it be charged to my S&S card? And do you have any idea what it will cost me?

I'ts about $10 per minute and is charged to your sail and sign card.

We sailed the Fantasy in January. You can call from both Freeport and Nassau. Phone stores right when you get off the ship and it's much, much cheaper. You buy a Batelco (Bahamas Telephone Co.) card for $5 or $10 and it's about $1 per minute. Phones right there and easy to use.

We are going on the RCI Sovereign of the Seas. We will be going to Coco Cay and Nassau. Are there any phones on Coco Cay? If so, can you get phone cards there? My daughter is taking a friend and I would like for her to be able to call her parents each day.
