    Cellular at Sea with At&t

    Generally, regulations require cruise ships to "turn off" their cell service (Cellular at Sea) when near/in port. This is primarily to prevent the local residents from inadvertently accessing the more expensive cell service. You won't have Cellular at Sea service even if you want it!

    Alcohol % limit on cruise lines

    That's how I read (interpreted) the original post.
  4. When in port/close to shore, ships are required to turn off their cellular service. This is to prevent the local population (or anyone on shore) from inadvertently accessing the more expensive Cellular at Sea instead of their own local service.
  5. Tried this this evening. Pretty good. Spicy and sweet. Chipotle-Maple Grilled Chicken Thighs More recipe than I usually deal with. Page 6 in the Summer "Paddlewheeler" https://www.americanqueensteamboatcompany.com/aqsc/media/uploads/ThePaddlewheeler/Paddlewheeler_Summer_2018_WEB.pdf
  6. In black plastic garbage bags in a detached garage.

    Electrical Outlets

    In the past I have used both outlets. Used a plug adapter (NOT a voltage converter) with a wall transformer/charger that was already capable of handling the higher voltage. Many are now. Look closely at the label: 100-240V 50/60 hz.

    Victoria visit to Gardens

    It would take time out of your visit to Buchart Gardens but why not have something to eat there? IIRC, there is some food and beverage service available there.

    Marine radio scanner

    The standard VHF maritime frequencies are readily available. This site, in addition to those maritime frequencies, also lists the frequencies used by cruise line crew and staff such as housekeeping, security, engineering, etc. http://www.scanmaritime.com/

    Perhaps NCL itself should be consulted (thank you Google)... https://www.ncl.com/faq/guest-conduct-policy https://www.ncl.com/faq#smoking
  11. Sounds like two vehicles (either Uber or taxi) unless you can request an SUV or van.

    CPAP machine

    My sleep apnea was characterized as "mild"...I leave mine at home. Your situation may be different.

    low sodium diets

    Have you contacted your cruise line? They may be able to accommodate a low-sodium (and other) diets.
  14. As far as I know, the Mississippi River is still in the USA. You may, or may not have (domestic) roaming charges depending on your plan.

    Wifi calling the answer

    Wifi calling is built-in to the Samsung Galaxy S7 out of the box. No separate app needed.
