Is it just me or are more and more people using their cell phones at sea?

A cruise ship used to be the only place you could go on vacation and be guaranteed that you wouldn't see a single cell phone for an entire week (except in port).

I hope the cruise lines get ahead of this trend and make public areas such as the pools and restaurants cell phone free. Computer free too! That's what the internet cafe is for.

I'm not saying passengers shouldn't be able to use them at all as there are many situations where they are appropriate. However, I spend a lot of time on the phone and computer at work and frankly, being away from those two items adds a lot of value to my vacation.

Am I alone or do others feel the same way?
