We're considering a cruise & were wondering what options their are for international travel? The trip would have two days in the US, the remainder in the Caribbean. We just want to have the phone for emergency purposes, so limited texting &/or phone. What is the best plan for my needs?

For emergency purposes you could just not get any add-on. There are no add-ons while you are on a cruise though. You will pay the (exorbitant) roaming rate for being on the water. Incoming texts however remain free and outgoing remain at 60 cents a text.

There are the two international add-ons while you are in the Caribbean but they would only be useful on land or very close to it.

Our plan is 200 minutes & unlimited texting, which add on would you recommend?

While traveling outside of Canada your plan is pay-per-use minutes / outgoing texts plus free incoming texts. You can choose an international travel plan if you wish. You cals should sure you have added the free “International Voice Roaming" and / or the free “International Data Roaming” add on.
