No. Trackfone does not allow international roaming. It will only work in the USA.

It should work, but you gotta make sure that you have international roaming activated on your plan.
Trackfone is a USA prepay phone and they don't permit international roaming.

Will it work on the ship? Perhaps it will work for a certain distance out of NY, and then quit?
A US Tracfone will work for a few miles out of New York and then quit.

Well, that's what I have. A Tracfone.
I surmised that. The Tracfone will be a brick after a few miles out of New York. It will be brick in Bermuda.
