Default Radio for Onbord Communication?

Hi
Some Company offer some Fright Ship "Cruse". I know the are incredible expensive 1 Day cost ~ 100 depend on the Ship but it sound interesting. What kind of Radio are used for Onboard Communication in Europe and Open Water? I see in the Freq List on the normal VHF Ship Channels.
Does anyone know more?

Sat for Onboard Commination? I think the Ships are not that big for cover with an Repeater.

They use private digital systems onboard, and satellite for long range. Very little on VHF ship channels except when in port, and even those are very low power.

Cruise ships?
I know some of them will let you rent DECT phones on board. The ships usually are running a DECT phone system for staff to use anyway. A properly set up DECT system connected to the ships internal PBX system will allow handoff between DECT base stations. Think of it as a mini-cellular phone system. I've got one at work and it works very well. The DECT base stations connect back to our PBX via SIP protocol over our data network. There are also WiFi based phone/radio handsets that may be used on board.

Unrelated to the rental use, there are UHF frequencies assigned for marine use. Pretty common for those to be used for internal ship communications. VHF marine gets used for bridge to bridge type usage. The UHF is used for internal, although some ships do use VHF for their internal communications.

Quite a few of the larger freight and container ships have passenger cabins which you can book via a travel agent although you don't want to be in a hurry...

...and you are at the mercy of route and port changes. You eat with the crew and you may be lucky and have a steward who will look after all the cabins. You will be bored to tears most of the day at sea, although most ships have a movie in the evening. Luxury it's not, and 100Euros per day is about the right fare.

As for shipboard communications, since the demise of the Radio Officer most external deep sea communications are via satellite and port operations on the 156MHz VHF band. We had larger (1960's!) portable radios (not handhelds!) on one or two large tankers but most communication on deck and below was done by telephone or loudhailer.
