NCL ships have the link fitted so your mobile will work even at sea but it needs to be Quadphone or a Triband one dual band I doubt would work but perhaps someone knows more about this nd will add a comment. OK to text but keep voice option to minimum s it is not cheap.

What has been happening over the last couple of weeks in the Cruise Industry ?There has been a lot of talk about the new Cruise ship Bliss belonging to Norwegian cruise line. I never thought there would be a day that a ship would have a race track on board . I am led to believe the track itself will be the longest at sea at nearly 1,000 feet, with four speed settings accommodating all drivers with the speed reaching up to 30 miles per hour including a special turbo boost available on each l...

Truth Behind Your Cruise Itinerary

By Emily Watts

Emily Watts's blog

Experienced cruisers will already know by looking at an itinerary how far the ports are from the main city and towns. However those that are new to cruising may be a bit miffed when booking a cruise that visits Paris or Rome they are in fact in some cases two hours away. With Paris being the capital of France you know the only water that surrounds it is the Seine.
