What price list applies on board ferries such as Smyril? siminn sim card

If traveling by ferry/cruise ship, there are usually two options if customers want to use phone service on board:

  1. Connecting to wifi on board or
  2. to roam, i.e. to have turned on roaming and use Síminn’s roaming contracts.

Alertify recommends that customers familiarize themselves with the price list of each ship for the use of wifi on board. Just like almost all operators, Síminn sends SMS messages to customers with information on how much it costs to use the phone if roaming is switched on. We always recommend that customers turn off roaming, as it is very expensive to use the phone while roaming at sea.
