Provided what you would expect out of basic app for a cruise... times, locations, ship map etc, as well as a basic chat app... having VOIP would be a great asset... or some way to ring others... found that messages would get missed if initial buzz was not detected. Also would have been great to have a location tracking system built in. With all of the rfid on board, adding tracking for others should be possible. Also would like reminder feature built in... something like an alarm that you could set for a show that you wanted to see. With disney, was expecting a wow factor...
App is a must have if you take a Disney cruise, but as of 06/17 it's not the most stable. Sometimes it lags real bad, and messages are sometimes delayed. You really do want it to communicate and keep track of shipboard activities thought.
This app not only has a countdown to your cruise, but comes to life when you get on the ship. It makes it so much easier to communicate and find out what is going on and at what time without having to carry your navigator AND room phone around.
Massive fail! App worked great for last two cruises, but on the Magic now and the app this year just puts me in a loop to force me to buy a data package (which DCL states unequivocally you do not need to use) from their new "Connect@Sea" service. Tried on three different devices with same result - no service on ship. For a DCL-pushed app we used to enjoy and depend upon - FAIL Disney!
Usually a great way to stay connected with family and friends while on board the Dream. Only suggested improvements would be boosting the WiFi signal in the Teen Hangout on Castaway Cay as it is nonexistent and caused some delay in finding family in the late afternoon. We also found when the time changed on my son's phone all of his chats with his new cruise friends disappeared. Manually setting the time to GMT one of the chats came back but none of the others.
It was nice to be able to track all of the great Disney activities but the chat was NOT in real time. You would be kicked off the wifi while trying to meet up with the rest of your family. They would get the messages several hours after I actually sent them.
With this release, we enhanced app performance and fixed bugs.
