Cell phone warning

From: Norwegian Communications CenterSent: April 21, 2017Subject: Safety Advisory: Samsung Galaxy Note7

In light of recent safety issues with the Samsung Galaxy Note7, we are asking our guests who own this model to please avoid traveling with this mobile device. The Federal Aviation Administration has banned the Samsung Galaxy Note7 from all air travel, and until further notice, this device will be restricted from all Norwegian Cruise Line, ships.

Fire is one of the greatest threats at sea and due to the safety concerns these devices present, if one is found in a guest’s possession or unattended in a stateroom onboard, our policy instructs the crew to confiscate the device for safekeeping. The device will remain in our possession, in a safe, monitored location, for the duration of the cruise. Guests can reclaim their device at the conclusion of the cruise from the reception desk.

Saw this months ago on a Princess Cruise

I, too, saw it on Princess.

I guess they don't want exploding phones on their ships.

Wow..... Things that make you go HMMMMM...

It was in my cruise mailbox. I just noticed it today.

Not from Carnival

Carnival's stand on the Galaxy Note 7: (from the Carnival FAQ page)

Samsung has announced an expanded voluntary recall on all original and replacement Galaxy Note 7 smartphones. Since the affected devices can overheat and pose a safety risk, guests and crewmembers in possession of a Galaxy Note 7 smartphone are requested to take the following precautions while on board:

Turn off the device. Disconnect the device from any charging equipment. Disable all applications that could inadvertently activate the device (e.g. the alarm clock). Protect the power switch to prevent its unintentional activation

Do you believe that a lot of the idiots would actually adhere to this request??

I'm pretty sure I wouldn't.

I'm the guy that used to smuggle protected power strips on boardSad

(I finally got my act together and don't do that any more :angelHappy:

We saw it in the spring when we cruised with Carnival.

I read about it in the papers a while ago.
