We also installed the satellite on the ship last week! Here is a picture of the satellite being loaded on board. The satellite will provide phone service and internet for the ship where ever we are. It will also allow us to have a phone number that will not change no matter where in the world we are...our number will be a US number (Florida, I think). So when we are in Africa, you can call us and only be charged for a call to the US! We'll let you know as soon as it is hooked up and ready for calls!
