Any idea on costs as need info for family emergency situation before I might have to cancel. Assume weather causes some restrictions. Thanks.

Not sure I understand the question, but here's the contact info in case someone needs to contact you on the ship:

 

Your friends and family can contact the ship by dialing

(888) 724-SHIP (7447). They can call (732) 335-3285

for access from outside the U.S. The cost is $7.95 per

minute and can be charged to their American Express,

MasterCard or Discover. (From outside the U.S., additional

long distance charges will apply.)

Thanks for phone information. I assume we will have internet access through whatever Radiance of the Seas has on board as an "internet set-up" for passengers. On other cruise lines, we were given a personal internet address for $100 which allowed us to access our home server 24/7 through the satellite. My question concerns availability and reliability in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and not just in a port. Thanks again.

Internet rates are

 

Base rate is $.65 per minute or choose from one of our prepaid packages:

$35 for 60 minutes

$55 for 100 minutes

$75 for 150 minutes

$100 for 250 minutes

$150 for 500 minutes

 

There is no 24/7 package offered and the prices are the same using their computers or yours via WIFI. Access to home servers might be blocked, especially if a VPN is used.

 

In some parts of the world and depending on weather and sea conditions the Internet might not be available at all times.
