Do I Need to Do Anything Before Going on a Cruise?



If the cruise travels to international locations, there will not be any cell service as we are a WiFi-only carrier outside of the United States. Further, due to the satellite internet connections offered on many cruise ships, WiFi may or may not support calling or texting, depending on particular limitations of the network:

To ensure texting function on their WiFi, please download Android Messages' web application so that you can text on any device using just WiFi, possibly even if some of the ports are blocked. Republic Anywhere can also serve this function if it is already installed:

We recommend Skype or Duo as alternatives for "calling" while you're on a cruise if it is a situation where ports are blocked for Republic Wireless WiFi calls.
