Cell Service on Embarkation Day
I'm not sure what thread to post this in, but this seems like the most appropriate one to me. Does anyone know if most cell service on embarkation day (still tied up alongside the pier) is taken from the local area, or the ship's satellite system? The reason I ask this is because I was looking to text a few people once I got onboard, then once we set sail, turn my phone off and put it in the safe in my room.
