Check the add ons section in self serve. It will tell u exactly where is covered. But I don't believe the U.S is covered in the international text add on. Click on Nitty Gritty. It explains everytjjng.

´╗┐´╗┐Best to put phone in airplane mode when at sea and take a US package to cover when you are ashore. International waters not included amongst the standard packages. Specifically excluded.

Hi Barb!

As Bob pointed out, the roaming add-ons can't be used on cruise ships but you will be able to use a pay-per-use roaming rate on a cruise.

Here are the fees specific to that:
- $7.00 a minute
- $15.00 per MB
- $0.60/texts (outgoing) + Free Incoming texts

Have a great trip :)
