@tracal: You don't need mobile data when you're using WiFi. You just pay the costs of whoever's providing the WiFi, if any, like your hotel.

 

If you are not using WiFi, you will need to buy a roaming data add-on, for instance for Jamaica: http://ee.co.uk/help/add-ons-benefits-and-plans/call-or-going-abroad/roaming-costs/countries/jamaica . You can then look at other countries from that page.

 

However when you are on the ship out of touch with land it'll be more expensive: http://ee.co.uk/help/add-ons-benefits-and-plans/call-or-going-abroad/roaming-costs/countries/maritim... . Best to use WiFi whenever you can.
