In the latest Galaxy Note 7 saga, one of the world’s largest cruise lines has now stopped the use of the popular mobile device onboard. Anyone with the Samsung phone onboard must have it switched off and disconnected from any charging devices. The Miami-based cruise line has also posted users of the device must “Disable all applications that could involuntarily activate the device” such as an alarm clock or any other apps on the phone. The Note 7’s power switch must also be protected so it is not turned on by accident.
