P&O cruise ship - global roaming using a prepaid sim

Does anyone know if my $30 prepaid Telstra mobile plan will work aboard Pacific Eden, while at sea.
I know that post paid Telstra services work but not clear in prepaid.

  • Yes it was, thank you

Re: P&O cruise ship - global roaming using a prepaid sim


We do have roaming agreements with Maritime Comms which operates on most Cruise Ships that depart from Australian Ports, however this does not include Prepaid Services.


This will mean that, unfortunately, your Prepaid Service will not work via a Mobile Network on a Cruise Ship.

You can, however, still use the onboard Wi-Fi to access data services. The costs of these are dependant on what P&O charge you to connect to this service.

You could potentially still use your Prepaid Service at your destination as well. Check out where you can use Telstra Prepaid here.


I hope that helps.
