AT&T* today announced the launch of AT&T Cruise Ship packages and the new AT&T International Long Distance Messaging 1000 package.

Smooth Sailing with AT&T Cruise Ship Packages

If you’re planning a future cruise with Royal Caribbean International®, Azamara Club Cruises® or on select Celebrity Cruises® ships, consider adding one of AT&T’s new Cruise Ship packages before setting sail.**

  • AT&T Cruise Ship Calling: Offers 50 minutes of talk time for $30/month.
  • AT&T Cruise Ship Calling and Messaging: Offers 50 minutes of talk time and 100 text, picture or video messages sent for $60/month.

More Messaging, More Savings

Mobile messaging is a convenient and popular way to stay connected with family and friends who live abroad, which is why AT&T has added a new package that offers a significantly larger messaging bucket and at a greater cost savings.

AT&T International Long Distance Messaging 1000 lets customers send up to 1000 international messages for $15 a month—that’s just one-and-a-half cents per message.  The package applies to text, picture or video messages sent from the United States to international wireless numbers in more than 120 countries.****
