Yes, according to this item from Carnival's website. Bear in mind that extra charges may be involved.

Also - please use the BB Code option from the cruiseclocks website. BB Code is the only one which works here. You appear to be trying to use HTML code for you countdown clock.

Hi april, and Welcome to Cruise-Chat!

You should also contact your provider to make sure it works. Some folks with "pre-paid" have reported it doesn't work.

If it does work, please just use it when necessary and in a private area. It can be irritating for other cruisers to hear your conversation.

I Have use my cellphone on the ship and even on the islands just remember rooming maybe expensive but not as using the cruise line phone
Carnival phone is $ 7 dollars a minute
I use mine, on my last cruise, and it was just $ 1.99 a minute with cingular
I take my cellphone to all my cruises just in case something happen, like a family emergency, and if they try to contact me, my family will have no trouble...

Thanks every one. I'm really looking forward to this cruise. And I would never ruin it or anyone elses trip by using a cell phone. It would be used in case someone at home had a problem. I have so many questions its really great to have a place like this to come.
Thanks Dave for the clock help..I hope it works this time.

We have Verzion. On our first trip to Mexico our phone did not work. When we got home and checked we found out we needed to inform them we would be traveling to Mexico. We did the next trip, they flipped the right button and it worked fine.

What were the charges per minuet from Mexico?

gdjoslin 10-18-2007 02:18 PM

Verzion charges 69 cents a minute from Canada and Mexico. If you call when the ship is not in port you will pay $2.50 a minute. We only call when in a port.
