Depending on the manufacturer and model of your phone, the Nor 18 bed, cellular@sea or 901 18 handset. WMS offers connectivity for customers of nearly 400 mobile phone companies around the world. With rare exceptions, your mobile operator should be supported by WMS. It should be noted that your mobile operator must allow you to migrate internationally for your phone to work aboard a WMS ship. A complete list of mobile operators with which WMS has roaming agreements is available on the WMS website at FAQs: www.wmsatsea.com/carrier-list.html Our service is operated by satellite or VSAT. When your ship is at sea at least 12 nautical miles away (or at least 2 nautical miles in EU countries), the WMS network turns on and you connect automatically. Please note that roaming charges apply to cruise ships.
Our service is maintained during the period during which the ship sails at sea. As soon as your boat gets closer to the country and is 12 nautical miles from the coast (or 2 nautical miles in the EU), our service is turned off and your phone takes the local service. If you are able to pick up local services in port areas, your carrier will charge you a different fare than the cruise ship roaming fare. Contact your mobile operator for prices and details.
