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.
Used it, but it doesn't work well Had to close and relaunch program every time I wanted to use it - otherwise it simply wouldn't operate. Primarily I used it to see what was going on around the ship each day, and to review my on-board account occasionally. For an extra $10 I also purchased the on-board texting application. Texts were not immediately received by others, and as noted above I still had to relaunch the program to see if I had received any messages.
This app was a great asset while on the cruise, it allowed us to view the schedule of activities on the ship while we were on the go without having to carry around a copy of the newsletter. We did find a few odd things with the app but as I understand it this is an early iteration of the app so hopefully they will improve it quickly to make it more useful to future guests. Issues: -Lacked details about the activities listed, while you could open up a scheduled item there were no additional details beyond a time and place (viewable on the itinerary) -I hoped to find ours of service for various restaurants and facilities on the ship but none to be found -I expected the app to have details about the restaurants and their changing menus -A map of the ship with the ability to give directions to a location would be nice (this feature is available on touch screens around the ship) -Viewing charges to your room was extremely confusing, while the total owed was correct I found double (and triple) entries and credits do not show up I look forward to an improved version on my next NCL vacation
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.
