Choose who to connect to when Roaming

I am going on a Fred Olsen Cruise round Norway and my PAYG phone will have roaming disabled when on-board. When we dock and leave the boat, I can enable roaming as  Norway has the same pricing as EU countries but how do I make sure my phone does not connect to the boat or other network that O2 does not recognise and force it to connect to a Norwegian Telecom company that O2 uses? What network name should I be connecting to?

Telenor will be the best to connect to I would think.

Other options will be NetCom, Tele2 and ICE.

If you put your phones network selection setting to manual, you will have to select a network yourself which will prevent the phone automatically connecting to something you don't want.

Thanks for that. I presume that when I connect to a valid network I will get a message from O2 saying welcome to xxx roaming, or something like that. I will look out for the names you listed when ashore. Thanks again.

Yes, you will receive a message telling you that all calls etc are included in your allowances.
