AT&T Cruise Plus1

This package has a $100 one-time charge and includes:
  • Unlimited talk and text
  • 1GB data allowance ($10 per 100MB overage charge)
  • Smartphones and tablets are eligible

AT&T Cruise Basic 1

This package has a $60 one-time charge and includes:
  • 100 minute talk allowance ($1 per minute overage charge)
  • Unlimited text

  • Smartphones only

Before you go

  1. Make sure you’re traveling on a cruise ship that is on the AT&T qualified ship list (PDF, 390KB). If it’s not, all your usage on the ship’s cellular network will be charged at AT&T’s pay-per-use rates.
  2. Identify all the destinations your cruise ship will visit and if you will want to use your eligible devices in port and/or on land. If you will, you may want to add AT&T International Day Pass® to cover that usage. With AT&T International Day Pass, you can talk, text and use your plan data in over 210 destinations for $10 per day. Without it, your talk, text, and data usage will be charged pay-per-use rates in port and on land.
FYI: AT&T Cruise Package usage only includes usage while at sea on an eligible cruise ship. All other usage, such as being in port or on a land excursion, is not included with the cruise packages.

Facts about using your AT&T Cruise package

When you can use a cruise package
While cruising onboard your eligible ship in international waters, your phone will connect to the cruise ship’s cellular network, and the network name Cellular at Sea, Nor-18, or 901-18 will appear in the upper left corner of your device screen.

Note: When the ship is within 9-12 nautical miles from shore, your cruise ship will turn off their cellular network, and your device will register on the nearest land-based cellular provider.

When you can’t use a cruise package Usage in port and on land isn’t covered by your AT&T Cruise package. If you have AT&T International Day Pass and the destination is included, your usage in that destination will be covered. If the destination isn’t included, or if you don’t have AT&T International Day Pass, then pay-per-use rates will apply.

Plan to leave the cruise ship and use your device? If you haven’t already added AT&T International Day Pass and you’re on an eligible rate plan, it will be auto-provisioned to your line when you land in one of the 210+ eligible destinations. Pay-per-use rates will apply in other destinations or if you decline to add AT&T International Day Pass.
