Helpful But Needs Improvement The app works pretty well in allowing passengers to text or call each other while on the ship. Some people in our group complained that their phones lost the wifi signal at times & they had to restart the app. I found that when viewing my account activity that the details did not always match my actual account. It would be great if there was an option to see a layout of the ship to help to locate the various places/activities or one of your contacts. A ship's passenger directory would also be nice.
As Useless on board as off. Does nothing till you are on board the ship and sign into the ship's wifi. The ship's wifi kicks your phone off after a few minutes, so you have a few minutes to use it before you have to sign onto the wifi again... then close the app, and reopen it to see if you have any replies. As for using it for amenities on the ship... again USELESS. Scrap it and start from the beginning.
Helpful but cool features are pricey This app is a big help on the cruises. Helps you find things to do. The text/call feature was also great for when I got sea sick one night and the boyfriend wanted to still be social while I was a bum in the room...we were able to keep in contact....but that feature costs too much...should be included :)
This was a great app to have. The texting was 7.95 per person but was well worth it, especially with groups. It does force you to carry your phone around on vacation, but was fine because most people use their phone for pics. I had no technical difficulties getting on Wi-Fi and using the app. Text and notifications worked well.
Works onboard ship Gave me access to virtually everything I needed on board. Messaging too expensive but reverted to sticky notes just as I would have without app. Used to reserve show tickets and specialty dining venues, check prices etc. Lagged in updating cabin accounts but was so did onboard tv app. Acct was correct at end of trip saving visit to CS.
Update killed it It was an AMAZING app before the update, now the countdown lags and doesn't remember the departure date (I have to fill it in everytime I open the app) And I'm afraid it'll be worse onboard, the chat was ok before, now if it lags this much i'm afraid messages might not send or even worse reservations not booked... Please fix it and it will be worth the 5 stars again
