I am from Western Canada, and the last time I sailed on the spirit I made arrangement with my cell provider (Telus) for 100 roming mins (I do this whenever I go to the states) You call them up and let them know where you are going and and for how long and they will change over you account when you leave and change it back when you get back. They allow you a certain amount of mins per day so as long as you don't go over you mins per day then you are not charged anymore. An the nice thing is the prorate it for the amount of days not the entire month so if you are gone for two weeks you only get billed for two weeks. I think it works out to .50 per min or somthing like that. So you can use your phone while in port.
