  • It's funny how the connectivity works on these cruises. We don't pay the ridiculous cost to use the ship's connection, which usually still winds up being very spotty. We just get the expanded roaming data plan with our carrier, and it (connectivity) comes and goes with no real apparent pattern while we're at sea, except the early morning hours seem to be the best time to post a story, which works out for me, as that's when I usually do, anyway. But, I have to do everything from my IPhone, fat fingers, tiny keypad and all.
