Mobiles can be used on MS EUROPA
Hapag-Lloyd Cruises now enables passengers aboard MS EUROPA to make and receive mobile phone calls just like they do ashore.
Aboard the Hapag-Lloyd Cruises flagship EUROPA, every passenger is now able to conduct phone calls using their own regular mobile phone in the same way they do ashore - independently of where the 5-star-plus cruise ship is at that particular time. This is possible thanks to a technological solution by Siemens AG, which connects the cruise ship with a satellite.
The charges for each guest depend on the contract with their respective mobile phone provider. They are usually slightly higher than the standard roaming charges ashore, but also significantly lower than the expensive standard ship satellite connection. The owner of the mobile phone will be billed for the charges directly by the mobile phone provider.
