Cellular at Sea Keeps You Connected

Going Cruising? Cellular at Sea Has You Covered

I just got back from a fab trip — a bunch of friends and I boarded a Carnival Fun Ship in honor of their birthdays. I have to admit, although I was looking forward to a relaxing vacation, I was nervous because I knew I would be out of cell range while we were spending the day at sea. What is a geek girl to do when she is totally disconnected!? Sure there are those iCafes aboard the ship, but who wants to spend money on those shared computers? So of course, I was ecstatic when I picked up my phone to see full reception – 23 miles off the coast!

Cellular at Sea is the Wireless Maritime Service that provides you with reception on a number of cruise ships, even when you are in the middle of nowhere. There are plenty of roaming partners that work with Cellular at Sea, so you should be able to make your calls while on vacay. But let's get real, you should keep it short – you're supposed to be relaxing!

There were times when I got the dreaded "No Service" message after dialing, but for the most part I had great reception everywhere on the boat. Just be advised that international roaming charges do apply, so you may want to restrict your calls to only those that are absolutely necessary. I haven't received my phone bill yet, but I'm crossing my fingers I didn't go overboard on the phone calls home! Get it? Overboard? I know . . . I'm pretty funny.
