I always find it amazing how many people are caching from the ships with us. It us rare that you don't run into another cacher.
I wish I was on a geocaching cruise at this very moment instead of 8 months out from my next cruise.

I am leavng for a cruise at the end of the week. Does anyone know where I can find coordinates for caches in ports of call?? I would love to get a few international caces while out and about.Just go to http://www.geocaching.com/map/defaul...809,-123.12028 then type in the location you plan to visit. You don't need to pay for membership unless you want to access the member only caches. Doc&jo from Oregon
I usually bring my GPSr on cruises to geocache, but I have been using my iPhone lately to find caches because my GPSr broke. Does anyone know if my iPhone's GPS will work in the Caribbean, especially if the phone is in airline mode?The GPS will probably work BUT if you are getting information about the caches you will probably end up paying either roaming and/or data charges IF your phone works on whatever island you are on. In my experience the ships charge $2.50/min. for phone service. I usually run querys for the locations I am cruising to and download them to my computer before I leave. This is not as timely as the phone method but at least I have the information. Before I had a GPS to download to I would print out the ones I was interested in and take that with me.
