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.

Travel agents.and just why ...

By Abbi Varela

Well what a week it’s been with the collapse of Monarch, it has sent shock waves through the travel industry and here at www.CRUISE.co.uk our team have been working hard to ensure that our cruise customers have been looked after and that it has had a minimal effect on their cruise booking.I have been so sad and upset for all those employees waking up last week to find their job had gone…just like that! I have been in that situation before, a good few years ago now but I remember how h...
