I've looked on the boards and haven't found the specific answer I'm looking for.
I understand that while you are at sea, you can get coverage through RCCL's network, and that I'll pay for this through my carrier (AT&T in our case.) I also understand that once the ship is within a certain distance of land (supposedly within 12 miles) they turn that ship network off and you would default to whatever the local carrier is.
In this case, I checked the website of the Bahamas telco, and they do not list CocoCay (or it's previous name, Little Stirrup Cay) as an island on which there is coverage.
I called RCCL and they did not know the answer. (Side note: wondering if there is anyone on the ship I could email this question, if need be.)
So to anyone who's been on Coco Cay and used your cell - did it work? Does the ship just leave their network on during they day, and if so, do you have to be on the ship to get a signal?
Thanks in advance for any info! And in case anyone's thinking, "just relax and don't use your phone/you're on vacation," I am asking this info for my wife, who is in the middle of a sensitive business deal and may need to talk to someone that day. If she knew that this was possible, it would make her vacation (and mine) much more relaxing! Thanks!
