Despite the point Chris makes I have topped up my phone when on the ship and there was no charge, I am using 02, it might de different with other providers so it is safer to top it up before you go or when ashore. Not all mobile work abroad I have a Quadphone and all countries except China/Singapore/Asia it didn't work but fine everywhere else including the USA. Hopefully you can live without it unless a rel need to contact home etc...Bill.

Wilba is right. .............and a word of caution - if you use your phone aboard the ship, it will be via the ship's satellite system and will cost a fortune. This applies to all cruise lines. If you use it aboard ship for communicating with others in your party it will cost you BOTH a fortune. That's for both making AND receiving calls.............. so dont answer the phone unless you're pretty sure its urgent. Responding with a text isn't so bad. ...........wait until you're in port & get a land signal before phoning..............(ditto using a computer). ................. make sure international calling isn't locked-out (security measure) by your airtime supplier - if you've not used it abroad before, phone them to check. And if your phone is PAYG, make sure you top up the credit before you go .................Chris.

The cabin we had, had both types of plug.....220 volt was 2 pin round and the 110 volt was 2 pin flat. Best one to use was the 2pin round... Hope it helps.

I went on the Celebrity Equinox equipped with both set of travel plugs. I found on the vanity unit there was an American flat pin and round pins. At times I need to charge video camera and digital and mobile phones, so I just put one in the round pin and one in the flat pin. I see someone else had problems charging their mobile. I have to say I am PAYG Vodafone as is my husband and we had no problems. As my friend managed to wash his brand new phone in the jacuzzi (!) I lent him my spare handset, and again there was no trouble charging. We personally only texted, but my friend is in business and was on a contract. I am not sure what it cost him, but no doubt it came out of his allowance - I shall have to ask him.
