Default Will my cell phone work?

My wife and I leave this Saturday on Liberty of the Seas and was wondering if our cell phones will work. Last December I was on the Carnival Victory and I could text but couldn't make a call. We were on a Western Caribbean cruise. Not that I'll be keeping it with me but it would be nice to check on our daughter even if it's just a text. I have Verizon Wireless if it matters. thanks

I have AT&T. I just got off the phone with them and they do have service on Mariner of the Seas however it is $2.49 a minute.

I would call your cell phone provider to verify. My guys looked up the particular ship and told me exactly how it would work.

Good luck!

I have verizon wireless you have to call them and have them put international calling on your phone first of all it doesnt cost anything. My cell worked great at seat my friend has verizon and hers didn't work as well. It's $2.49 a minute at sea. Texting is 50 cents to receive and 5 cents to send or mights be the opposite. When I went to San Juan it was 69 cents a minute and St Thomas was the same I could'nt use it in Labadee. Hope this helps you. Have a great time.

I have Verizon cell phone service and was able to call Vermont from the
cruise ship while docked in Puerto Rico. No problem. Did not have to call Verizon or anything. My call went through automatically with no problems.

Many ships now have their own antennae for North American cell phones. Unfortunately, they charge "International Roaming" rates so it will be very expensive to use your cell phone if it works.
