Default Cell Phone Use on Mariner of the Seas

My DH has cell pnone service thrugh Cingular - Is the ship equiped with
the appropriate antenna (or whatever technical stuff) needed to call home?
We need to have access to our business 24/7. He had no problem when
we did the Panama Canal (full transit) but we are doing the South America
repositioning cruise next Jan '09 - and sailing much farther south. Thanks.

Sherrie,

We had cell phone service throughout our cruise to the Eastern Caribbean on the Explorer of the Seas. I am sure the same service is available on the Mariner.

Of course we kept it turned off when we were actually at sea and only used it from in port, but it was available for an emergency. I kinda' didn't want to have a coronary when I got the bill for answering the thing while in the middle of the Sargasso Sea, especially only to find out it was a wrong number!

At any rate, I'm positive a quick call or e-mail to Royal Caribbean will solve your dilemma.

Have a magnificent cruise!

Todd

Cingular = AT&T

They use GSM. It works worlwide. It will work on the ship and in all ports.

Thanks, he signed up for one months' international calling last time and
it worked out great. I don't know what the bill was but he must have been "OK" with it or would be looking elsewhere. He's a pretty savvy
shopper when it comes to cell phone programs/service. 8)

I think that if you call direct ti is like ... $2.49/minute. Getting the International "package" for one month drops that a lot.
