They have a Facebook page. And even a video. With all the contacts in this group, you'd think someone would know someone who works on a cruise ship or ferry boat. My history is that in the 1980s we could make collect INMARSAT calls from the ship for about US$15/min. Around 2000 we became able to make INMARSAT-C calls for about US$1.50/min. By 2005 we had VoIP and could call home for almost nothing. The big breakthrough came in about '95 when we got a rudimentary shared e-mail account. That made all the difference in the world.
