    When you arrive at the city that you depart, you should be able to visit any carrier and pick up a SIM card. I’ve been staying in London for the last 2 months and I picked up a Vodafone big value card for 10 pounds. It can be used all over Europe and has 3GB for data for 30 days.

    I'm told that T-Mobile works in some 130 countries. It's owned by Deutsche Telekom so that makes sense. We are light users so I just stick with AT&T's international plan that is $10 for each day you use it, and no charge if you don't. On a cruise, you'll just be in each port for a few hours to overnight, so how much will you be using your phone. The cruise ship will have a phone network too. Perhaps there is a SIM to access that? Check with them. Also, you can use Skype when on wi-fi for virtually no-cost calling.

    T mobile works in many countries but outside North America it's very slow. I'm going to Italy next month and will just leave my phone on T Mobile and pop a SIM into my iPad. I also downloaded my region to Google Maps so that data will be on my phone when I arrive.

    Yes, my daughter is abroad in Switzerland now and we thought about going the T-Mobile route but then saw how slooooooooow the data is in Europe we decided "nope". She got a local SIM card there and has been happy w/that decision.

    Go for the local sim option You'll get 4g speeds rather than the 3g that Tmobile restricts you to.
