By the way they are very useful when you don't want to talk to an annoying person. You just pretend to have an incoming call!

Your Rays have a marginally better chance this year since they picked up one of our cast offs who knows how to win one!

Have you ever noticed how manay people hold a cell phone up to their ears but never utter one word. What's with these people?

I would hate to get the bill for that cell when I get back.

Most people don't realize the cell calls on ships

are about $1 a minute plus provider roaming charges.

That means a 5 min call is approx $5

2 calls a day $10

7 days at 2 calls $70

The only exception would be if they are using a shore based provider

in port.

Actually

The only word that makes sense in this is EXCESSIVE,,,as everything on ship is that.

Food
Drink
Gambling
Talking
Peoples actions and reactions

Its a vacation ship and everyone wants to chill, if talking on a cell is their way, fine. Its a big ship walk away.

If some folks are walking about in a mall, would they see the same thing in cell use?
