VOOM SURF Packages
If you plan to use your cell phone on a cruise ship, it’s important to know that once you sail away from the embarkation port, your cell phone will go into roaming mode, which translates into higher rates and extra fees.
You can avoid extra fees from your cellular carrier by putting you phone on airplane mode. If you are purchasing an internet package then you can enabling your WIFI while keeping your smartphone on airplane mode.
If you must make or receive calls consider using an application like WhatsApp, Skype or any number of other similar apps that use the internet instead of a cell signal to make calls. These apps are great but most times both parties need to have the same application. Make sure you downloaded it in advance family and friends.
Last but not least you can sign up with a cruise package with your cellular carrier. These packages allow Talk, Text and Data. Below is a description of what the major carriers offer.
Remember most carrier have different cost when you are on the cruise ship to when you are in port. Some people choose to only use their cellphones at port which can save you some money and fees.
