    All cruise ships have wifi, but it can be pricey. It's $!5 a day on Royal Caribean, and that's one of the cheaper ones. Just make sure you keep your data and roaming turned off, and then turn wifi on to prevent nasty surprises.

    Most ports have wifi, either free, or for under $10. The crew always know where free wifi is in ports, so you can ask them.

    Call your phone company and ask them what to do where you are going.

    When at sea on the ship you'll have to use the ship's internet connection. And they'll charge you an arm and a leg for that connection.

    So what I do, and I'm a seasoned cruiser, is wait until the ship pulls into port. Typically there is something there that you can connect to. And it's way cheaper.

    WARNING (and yes I'm shouting because this is really important): You should call and talk to your cell phone provider to arrange for overseas rates. If you don't they will also charge you an arm and a leg for what they call roving. And they could cost you hundreds of dollars. So call your cell phone provider.

    You can use a computer to email her, or use CallingCards.Com to get an international calling code. Check with your cellphone carrier on the texting: probably can't do it without buying a special chip to insert inside your cellphone.
