Most people go on cruises to disconnect for a while. Even the thought of bringing a smart phone conjures up thoughts of deadlines, meetings, and schedules for some. But for those who just can’t leave those little screens behind, there are ways to make sure they don’t ruin your cruise experience.
A cell phone can be a blessing and a curse. It can either ruin or enhance your cruise if you choose to bring it along, so here is some helpful advice.
Ruin or Enhance?
Ruin: International Roaming Fees
Cell phone bills are high enough, but you if you don’t want any surprises at the end of your trip you had better turn off international roaming. Charges can be as high as $2.50/minute and $0.50 per text. Data charges can be as high as $20 per meg. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather put that money into a savory steak at a specialty restaurant. Check out cell phone rates from major carriers here.
