Plus a $10 application fee, and both fees cover only one year at a time (in
case you plan to take more than one cruise over more than one year's time).
You need a General Class license or better to apply. And you need to start
making these arrangements a few months ahead of time, mot at the last
minute. All very reasonable requirements, but just sayin' that this is not
something you can decide to do o a whim without serious planning.Oh, and
you are only covered while on board the ship in international waters or in
the territorial waters of the Bahamas. Again, very reasonable but worthy of
a little pre-planning.

Enjoy your cruise. I have enjouyed several (radioless, alas).
