Mobile phone and mobile data use on cruise in Australian waters

Can I use my mobile phone and mobile data whilst on a cruise not leaving Australian waters  without incurring roaming charges.

Going on a short cruise Melbourne to Melbourne (a couple of nights in Bass Strait) and would like to use mobile data if possible but not if it means I will incur roaming charges

Hi

As long as you have data roaming turned off on your phone you won't be charged. However you will find fairly limited signal as you cruise. You will need to be near the mainland or Tasmania to pick up any reception.
