1. Can we stay in touch with the "outside world"?
Quite easily. Most ships have a daily newsletter with news headlines, selected stock quotes and sports scores. You can call someone on shore through the ship's radio operator while at sea. And you can make phones calls from most ports of call. If you need to speak to someone at home or at the office, you can make out going calls or receive incoming calls on board ship. Fax service is normally available too. Charges will apply to faxes and outgoing calls.
2. How do I pay for on-board purchases?
Although the vast majority of your vacation is included in the cost of your cruise, you will need additional funds for optional expenses such as shore excursions, alcoholic beverages, purchases at on-board shops, massages and other beauty treatments. Upon boarding the ship, guests establish an on-board account for these types of expenses, which they may settle at the end of the cruise with a major credit card, cash or travelers checks. You will need cash if you plan to gamble in the casino and for discretionary tipping at the end of the cruise. You can cash travelers checks at the Pursers Desk on board the ship
3. Are there laundry services aboard?
Yes. Almost all cruise ships have laundry facilities and a great many provide dry-cleaning services. There is, however, additional charge for professional laundry and dry-cleaning services. Many ships also have self service launderettes.
4. Are there meeting rooms on-board?
Yes. Most cruise lines will be happy to make public rooms available to groups. If you need to make such arrangements, Alec and I can work with the cruise line's group sales department to coordinate schedules as well as any catering desired. This service usually includes access to the ship's audio-visual equipment.
