Is there an option for access to phone, text email etc while on a cruise other than the wifi offered by the cruise line?

There is, but it is pricey. International Phones & Global Calling Plans | Verizon Wireless

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Thanks for your fast response!

I received an 'unexpected error' message when I click on the link. I went to the Verizon wireless site but didn't see a link to that type of information.

The link works for me just fine. You can also go to the Verizon Wireless website, have your cursor hover over "Shop" then move it to "Plans & Services" when it appears and then click on "International Plans" when it appears.

On the resulting page, click on "Get Started" under "Travelling outside the US". Towards the bottom of the page, you will see cruise ship rates which run $2.99/minute for calling and $0.50 for sent texts and $0.05 for received texts. Cellular data is not available while cruise ships are at sea. So to receive email while at sea, you must subscribe to the ship's wifi.

The links tend to error when you open them from the email notification of a new post in the community forum. If you clicked on the link for the discussion, you could have viewed the post on forum and accessed the support page. It probably has to do with too many redirects.

Elliot1051 making sure I stay in contact with family while I’m traveling is very important. If you do not use the WiFi on the cruise ship, depending on your location you would incur international charges. I have supplied a link to the information about usage while traveling and international plans. https://www.verizonwireless.com/solutions-and-services/international-travel/

The link works fine for me; are you accessing it while logged into the forum rather than via an e-mail notice of the post?
