Default Explorer/Cell Phones/Price

My and I are one the first paying passenger sailing on the Explorer this saterday the 28th and would like to know if our Sprint PCS cell phone will work in San Jaun and Saint Thomas

Plus all prices for this cruise are more than the regular cruises - is something special planned for the passengers or is it just that if you want to be on the maiden cruise you will pay more

and if you are in an inside cabin and they are all 175sq ft and all the same layout
why a difference in price

Hi SYoung,
The cell phone may work from Miami, but not sure about when you get into the Caribbean, sorry. My daughter used hers once on board Explorer in New York this past week-end and it was Ok from there. As for the different prices of the cabins, a lot depends on where the cabin is located even thought they are the same size. Same goes for outside, balcony, etc. I would think being the first "official" voyage you may probibaly get a few extra suprises. I'm sure it will be very exciting, enjoy it and let us know how you like the ship. I hear its just beautiful with tons of neat artwork throughout :-)

We used our cell phone last March on the Granduer of the Seas as we were pulling out of the Port in San Juan, was clearer than when we tried to use it at the Port of Miami and we were docked.

I can't speak specifically to your cell phone or service but I will tell you that Motorola tri-mode StarTac on Verizon works with no problem and is handled as a simple per minute roam just as anywhere outside home area. This is both in San Juan and St.Thomas.
