Johnstone - Answered a Question by williams (26 Jun 08 21:11)

I've not been on RCI but it's unusual for ships cabins to have kettles in them. You can order tea or coffee from room service any time you want. As for mobile phones, the answer is sometimes. Depends on whether or not you can pick up a signal. Most often than not i find that I can only use it in port or when I'm close to Port, although I did manage to use it for a few days in the middle of the Atlantic a few months ago which I found quite surprising.

I would refer to the RCI brochure on Voyager cabins to find the answer to your first question, though it is doubtful, as kettles in cabins are a very British thing ( stick to the likes of P&O if this is important to you). As to mobile phones, the only way that they will work away from land is via the ships satellite communications network. Most ships now allow you to use your mobile phone through this system, but it will be quite expensive! Once again just check with RCI for the specific ship that you are sailing on. Happy cruising.

We have been on Voyager and kettles aren't supplied and travel kettles are not allowed. I don't know about phones but you can e-mail from the ship for a cost but the system is very slow.

Adonia back with P&O

By Gemma Coles

 It doesn’t seem that long ago when we said goodbye to the P&O Adonia. P&O Adonia left the fleet in 2015 with much sadness to lots of passengers. The ship went to Fathom Cruises which is a line dedicated to volunteer tourism. Guests were taken to locations such as the Dominican Republic to help teach English or build water filtration systems to help with poorer countries. Carnival Group have now announced that after an upgrade to the ship, with the addition of a new rest...

Small ships are wanted!!

By Neil Holmes

Neil Holmes's blog

P&O have announced that their small ship Adonia is to return to their 2017/2018 season. The ship was much loved by the P&O faithful and when she left the fleet to help with humanitarian work overseas there was a big hole to fill as many of the P&O fleet are larger ships and P&O were losing some of their passengers to cruise & Maritime and Fred Olsen.From June 2017 she will start Mediterranean, round Britain and even an Iceland sailing. The smaller more interesting ports w...
