Well, using the phones while on the boat is going to be pay-as-you-go for voice, text, and for data with data being the most expensive of the three @ $2.05 per MB. Calls are $2.99 per minute and text messages are .50 per message sent and .05 per message received so at a minimum turn cell data off on the phones and use the ship's wi-fi. Other than that, while in port can consolidate usage to one of the phone's with TravelPass enabled and that way it is only $10 per each 24 hour period used with your normal domestic plan allowances being used. That is at least how I would do it if I were trying to keep costs down Smiley Happy

Airplane mode for the entire trip and look into what the wifi costs on the ship.

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

SCOM- we want to make sure you don't incur high international chargers. Keeping your devices in Airplane Mode will indeed keep you from getting charges. However, we also International Plans. You can take a look at our International Plans here: http://spr.ly/65878iMtZ .
