Chat feature made it easy to coordinate with the other 5 members of my family. Never looked at the paper Fun Times since it was all in the apps. The photos feature was amazingly easy to order and download pictures! Wish you could look up or add spa appointments, booked excursions, and specialty dining reservations.
The app is great for show times and finding your way around the ship. The communicator was useful but would have been way better with time stamps for time sent on messages instead of when you received them. The ships wifi often would drop the communicator connection and we wouldn't know if a message was current or not. Other enhancements could be to allow ways to meet up with other passengers not in your friend circle with interest in an event (only via opt in please do not make it always share)
I liked it. Very helpful for getting around the ship and knowing what's going each day. I purchased the chat but we would get the messages later some times when the Wi-Fi was not working well. It was almost pointless to have had paid the $5 for it. When looking for others in our group we would find them before we would get each others messages some times. The Wi-Fi sucked and you need that as well to be able to chat. Loved the app though. Great for finding your way around, knowing what's going on each day and keeping track of your sign and sail account.
I liked the app. The only reason I knocked off a star is because the chat service does not come with notifications. So if you are not looking at the chat screen, you may miss notifications from the people you are interacting with. And since this is a paid portion of the service ($5) and the only way to keep in touch with others while on the ship, this feature would be helpful.
Nice overview of all happenings aboard & being able to select favorites & receiving reminders. Ability to look at menus was awesome! Chat only worked sporadically. Would be nice if group texts would show who read the message. On $ account summary it merely summarizes all charges. Why isn't the amount owed shown, which would reflect any credits? Online spa appointments show up under "excursions" but no appointments are visible on the app. It would be nice to have a map showing the ship's location, like on state room TV.
I liked the app, but there a few things that could be improved. First, the app should be a part of the checking-in /boarding process. That way you are ready to go from the beginning of the cruise. Second, photo section didn't work all to well. There were pictures of other passengers mixed in with mine, and vice versa. That needs to be improved.
