What operator charges apply if I use my mobile phone onboard?


Whilst you can enjoy the flexibility of using your mobile phone onboard, it is important to note that the mobile network is delivered by MCP and that costs to receive and make calls and/or SMS messages will be higher than those charged whilst on land. 


The costs charged to you are not within Stena Line’s control. If your mobile phone picks up the MCP network you should receive an SMS informing you that you are now on the MCP network and that call rates are charged at International mobile phone rates which are considerably higher than your regular call costs, the details of which you should obtain from your own service provider.


Important information: EU Roaming fees

From 15th June 2017, the EU decided to remove roaming fees within EU, meaning that no extra costs will be invoiced when using your phone for voice or data in another EU country.


Onboard Stena Line vessels, EU roaming is not available since the vessels are operating in international waters. Rates for roaming at sea are available with your mobile operator.


If you need to go online with your mobile device or computer, we recommend you to use our free Wifi Internet@sea.
