When the device is connected to the ship's cellular network, "cellularatsea", "wmsatsea", "901-18" or "NOR-18" displays on the device. The ship turns off its cellular network when it is within 12 nautical miles from land and docked or tendered in port, at which point cellular service is provided via the nearest country. Countries: Add AT&T International Day Pass to your eligible domestic wireless plan to cover your usage when on land or in port. Go to att.com/intldaypass for details.

Actual data speeds vary by device and ship. Data use is subject to the same network management practices as your domestic wireless plan. See att.com/broadbandinfo for details. Data overage: If you exceed the amount of data in your Cruise package, additional data will automatically be provided in increments of 100MB for $10 each. Once you have incurred $100 in data overage charges or, for business and government customers, $300 in data overage charges, data use is subject to suspension, including data use on land, even if you have a separate international package for data usage on land. Upon suspension, AT&T will provide notice and instructions for restoring data use capability. Talk: For phones only. Applies to all cellular calls dialed and accepted.

Travel tips for your AT&T Cruise package
- Disable any apps running in the background.
- Disable email auto-check.
- Turn off cellular data.
Your device will display Cellular at Sea, 901-18, or NOR-18 when roaming on the ship’s network. When roaming on a land-based carrier, it will display the land carrier's network information. Cruise ships are required to turn off their wireless networks when they are 9 - 12 nautical miles from land and while in port.
AT&T Cruise Packages FAQ
What is the difference between a cruise package and other international roaming packages?
International Day Pass for Business and Business Passport packages do not include cruise ship coverage. Learn more about International Business Mobile Plans, including which countries are covered.
Is my usage covered regardless of the cruise ship I take?
Will data used while on shore be included in the cruise packages?
Can I have a roaming package along with a cruise package?
Yes. Cruise packages are compatible with all other international roaming packages including International Day Pass for Business.
How can I tell if I am on a ship’s wireless network versus a wireless network in an international country?
Be aware that cruise ships are required to turn off their wireless networks when they are 9-12 nautical miles from land and while in port. Also:
- When the ship's wireless network is on, your device will indicate you’re roaming on its network by showing Cellular at Sea, 901-18, or NOR-18 in your display.
- When your device is roaming on a land-based carrier, it displays the land carrier's network information.
How long is the AT&T Cruise package effective?
Cruise packages are effective for 30 days and expire automatically. Pro-rated charges are not provided for cruises less than 30 days. The package will automatically drop off after 30 days, so there is no need to contact Customer Care to remove it.
Will one AT&T Cruise package cover all the devices on my account?
No. AT&T Cruise packages are added on a per-line basis. If you are traveling with multiple wireless devices that you wish to use during your cruise, each device must have its own cruise package.
