Default Phone charges

Just to let everyone know, that the charge on the Star Princess last week was $1.95 a minutefor a phone call . But beware that if anyone calls you from home, the charge is $11.00 a minute! We had no idea, and found out after we got home. So better to keep in touch by you calling home.

Hi Tonidee,
Yes, phone calls to ships are very expensive, use e-mail when ever possible, even in the ports, its a lot cheaper than onboard.

That's why we use the internet to send email messages. Even though they charge 50 cents/minute and it takes a while to type or read, it still is less than a phone call. And one can always send the received message to the printer and read it at their leisure off line. Plus, if one is a Platinum level Captain Cirlce member, the internet is supposed to be free.

We did do alot of email as being in the Grand Suite, the computer in there was free. But my daughters needed to hear their childrens voice every couple of days, so they had them call the ship.....would have been much cheaper using the ships phone at $1.95 a minute!
