Does your cell phone work on the cruise??? I have a quad band phone, which means you can use it internationally, but can you get a signal wayyy out in the middle of the ocean?? If not, does your phone work at port? I know that cruise phones are really expensive so i was just wondering about that...
idk what brand or service your cell phone is but i get service untill were a few miles away from port and then noting. so idk what yours will do but i dont at sea.

I have TMobile and only have service while in port or near port. Never out at sea. its fine though...cuz then you feel really disconnected from the world and can truly enjoy your vacation!
dont use the phones on the ship!! unless it is an emergency! like someone died! cuz those are wicked expensive.
buy a calling card before you go. you can use those at the pay phones in port. and idk about you...but our dollar store sells them ($1) for 30 minutes! awesome deal!

well i went on a bermuda cruise that went out of philadelphia, so we had through the delaware river. i had service until we left the delaware river.. and then when we were in it on the last night. so on the last night i called one of my friends. and then i texted until like i lost service on the first night. so yea i hate that im obsessed with my cell phone so its a good thing it doesnt work.. but at the same time i am obsessed so i was like overly excited and had to call people once i got service.
im going to hawaii this summer, so i'll have service like the whole cruise cuz i'll be in the united states. its gonna be so weird. i'm gonna have to like keep it away from me even though i carry it around with me on cruises. i dont know how im gonna do this.
