Cruise ship rates are VERY expensive. You may want to check your cruise ship information before making any calls or connecting to their network. You may also want to check the rates on Verizon's website to see if your cruise line participates in their plan.

Another thing to keep in mind when texting, if you send a group text, you are charged a sent text for EACH recipient. For example: if you send a group text to 5 different recipients, you would be charged $2.50.

If you have a smartphone, you're in great shape.  You can buy hours of Internet time on a cruise ship at a far lower cost than cell phone minutes.  You can then use Skype to make calls via the Internet.  Get the app and practice using it before you leave.
