This makes me feel completely technologically illiterate. I have never been on a cruise and we are scheduled to go on the Dream for 5n in May. What do you do with your techie stuff? 1) DH and I both have smartphones. We have no plans to make phone calls. Is the best option for us to simply turn them off? Turn them on airplane mode? We have no international plan (or any plans to get one). I don't want to incur any charges on our phones. 2) DH is planning on bringing his 3G iPad 2. We would like to check work emails on board and communicate back home. I'm talking about just quick checks/email - just keeping up with the goings on. Am I correct in thinking that we need to purchase wireless minutes from DCL when we go onboard? Can we use it in our staterooms? Anything I need to watch out for regarding service? Thank you! I swear I'm not a techno-dummy. I just have no idea how things work on the high seas and we're only planning to disembark at CC.
