Data Roaming on Mobile Phones

For paye as you go contracts

Your phone may have its data roaming switched ON so mail/internet use is chargeable even if you are in your home with your router/internet. Outside your home and if you have asked for ‘street internet’ you will use the 3G/mobile network which is chargeable and will use your contracted Gb allocation.

On my LG smart phone the data facility is switched ON/OFF by manually scrolling downwards from the top of the screen; data function is the icon with two back-back arrows. White=OFF, Blue=ON. Scrolling sideways displays other functions, Power Saver, Bluetooth etc

Hope this helps those not familiar with the use of phone internet/mail.

Thanks to respondents re Cruises

Thanks to all the people who responded to my post.  Not everybody realised that Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruise Lines (except for a few in winter) do not go from Malaga any more.  That is why I was asking about TUI, the only line using Malaga as its home port. I received some helpful information from one Digamite which I have passed on to those people who asked me to.  The whole point was to find a cruise from Malaga, we are not interested in flying anywhere, and in any case the flights don’t always match the cruise times, for example, the one truly direct flight to Venice is a day late. Many thanks to everyone who responded.
