I found on the web side of Celebrity cruise line , so I call to make sure and talk to on the phone and they said that I can't use my ham radio. They said that I may interfere with the ship communications but I am going to take it anyways ...... 73 de ko6jc

When I operate from cruise ships I secure permission from the cruise line, generally via their web site or email and once on board, I go to the front office with a letter to the master of the ship requesting permission to operate. The latter may take a day or so and I have never been turned down on HollandAmerica lines, whether HF or V/U for satellites.

The XYL and I are going on a cruise next year. Since we will be in a lot of grids that I bet are fairly rare I would like to operate while at sea. We are going to be on a Celebrity ship and I would like to approach the company and ask permission to operate while at sea.
