Default Cell Phone Usage Update

NCL tells Norwegian Sun passengers to pack their cell phones

MIAMI -- Norwegian Cruise Line will be the first North American cruise company to offer cell phone service to its cruise passengers.

Passengers would be able to use their own cell phones and numbers -- the technology works with most U.S. mobile phones -- and would be billed by their own carrier at roaming rates, “just as if they were roaming on land instead of at sea,” NCL said.

The Norwegian Sun will be the first ship to offer cell phone access in September; NCL said it could be fleet wide within a year.

The technology is provided by Wireless Maritime Services, a joint venture between AT&T Wireless and Maritime Telecommunications Network. Last month, the company said it would offer mobile services onboard Island Cruises, a joint venture between Royal Caribbean Cruises and UK tour operator First Choice Holidays.
