Can I use my allowance with cellular at sea?

Off on a cruise in Europe soon and the cruise company say that mobiles can be used whilst at sea (we have a number of sea days) to stay in touch using cellular at sea - can I use my monthly allowance with this?

No sorry, both maritime networks and aircraft networks are not included in any of your allowances sorry.

 

Charges for maritime networks can be found here.

 

Both systems are satellite based, hence why they are so expensive and not included in any allowances.

Surely the cruise liner will have WiFi, which you can use to stay in touch by means other than mobile calls and texts. If you can subscribe to a VPN service or set up one at home yourself, WiFi calling might also work.
