  • On Travel Advice for Visiting a New Country, NJB said "Hi Stacy, great article! Just wanted to say, you can get an international SIM card that works in multiple countries and on cruise ships.

I got mine from Telestial, which also offers a range of cheap travel phones and other useful products (adapters, etc)."
