Frequent questions about Cruises

What if I need to stay in touch while I am away?

Ships are fitted with modern satellite communications systems that will enable a direct telephone connection worldwide as well as the sending of faxes (at a charge). Vice versa, a direct telephone connection on board can be received. Please note that the dialling of a telephone/fax number is chargeable to the caller. You can ask your telephone provider for the exact fees for a satellite telephone calls/faxes on board a cruise. The mobile network of the company OnAir, a provider of mobile services on board cruise ships and planes, enables you to also use your personal mobile phone or smartphone (e.g. Blackberry or Iphone) while at sea in areas in which your mobile phone provider normally cannot guarantee network coverage (service at extra charge: prices vary according to the provider).
