FYI, if you're looking for reliable on ship 2-way communications I highly recommend the Motorola DTR radios. We recently had entire ship interference-free coverage on the Carnival Sensation. These DTR's were the generation 2 models with the longer removable 900MHz whip antennas. Most of Carnival's ships are the same. I have been on the Paradise, Triumph and Sensation and they were all similar. I was really impressed with the DTR. If you want to spend less money on radios you could try the TriSquare eXRS radios. They use somewhat similar technology, but are less rugged, use analog voice, and have very small non-removable antennas so I don't know how coverage would be. In any case, I am willing to bet they would still be better than using FRS.
