Answer by beeson, langham (09 Nov 09 10:17) to a QUESTION by casselton (07 Nov 09 09:29)
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.

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

Answer by Chris, Romsey (07 Nov 09 13:49) to a QUESTION by casselton (07 Nov 09 09:29)
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
