Cruise ships can be a hard place to communicate without reliable cellular service, which is why two-way radios are a great alternative for ship crews and families. Listed below are a few different walkie talkies that have been tested extensively on many cruise ships. Instead of a traditional UHF or VHF signal, digital signal two way radios work better at communicating throughout an entire ship. From hull to helm, bow to stern and port to starboard, walkie talkies are a great solution to stay in contact consistently on board, no matter the purpose.
The Motorola DLR series work great on smaller ships, but on larger ones we recommend the DTR 550 series because it has a longer antenna, thus allowing the radio send and receive signals better and more consistently.
