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.

By Berni Corner

So how many of you have been watching the world cup this year?I have to say its not something I normally get involved in even though my partner and son are both football fans but i have to say i was very happy when Mexico beat Germany because I was in the middle of pricing up a cruise with Royal Caribbean over the phone with there American team and the whole centre erupted with cheers and whistles and it just brought home how much the world cup affects all of us and how we are all so patrioti...

WORLD CUP EVERY 4 YEARS ...

By Wayne Frieslander

Wayne Frieslander's blog

You might only get to enjoy a World Cup once every four years but you could enjoy a World Cruise every year, and that’s not as daft as it might sound. World cruises for upto 200 days may seem out of your league… but let me share with you some of the reasons they are not.When I started in the cruise business around 32 years ago, I often wondered who really did take full world cruises. My thought was that the cruise lines advertised these but the ship must have only ever been fi...
