My girlfriend just went on a cruise with her sister, We found it very difficult to stay in contact with out spending your well earned vacation funding, Can you Imagine paying $7.00 a minute to tell the one you love that you miss them or catch up on their day. Even worse 75 cents a minute to email each other. Even Us. Cellular has found a way to dig deep into you vacation funds by charging $3.00 a minute for opening your cell phone wether it be to text or check your messages, and of course the occassional outgoing call if you can find a signal.Lets not forget the roaming charges. So in closing I would like to say that if for some reason you can't go with your loved one, plan on spending fortune to stay in contact, Nice little scam the cruise line has going. Note the statement that some refreshments are included, Water is not one of them, Imagine that, I'm suprised the cruise line hasn't found a way to charge to use the bathrooms, I'm sure it won't be long, maybe it's a hidden fee.
