@KeithP 

If you are going on a cruise you should put your phone away after turning it off. The charges are astronomical as you use the ships satellite and not a network.

Some of the countries you are visiting may not support PAYG, so you should think about a 30 day sim only contract.

Only use Wifi when on land and turn voicemail off...

Please take a look at this guide.
