If you read on here, you will find my review for the first version of this App. It just gets better. This version for OS7 adds new features and a whole bunch of new topics. You will find added cruise lines and some great tips for river cruises. Lots of new photos makes for the ultimate cruise resource.
Wow! I wish I had this when we were selecting our first cruise many years ago. This is chock full of good tips. It does a great job of helping you understand the kind of ship and the clientele you will want to spend time with. The writer certainly knows these ships, and has done outstanding research to assemble the hundreds of photos that give you a peek inside. I'm not saying this is the only App you need if you are thinking about a cruise; on the contrary. But Cruise! should be your first one. Spend some time to browse through Cruise! and then download a couple others that are sponsored by the cruise lines and travel agencies.
Very Informative & Fun!
I feel like a true expert on all of the cruises available after reading through this app! It has tons of information, and is very engaging. One of the other reviews mentions that this is the only app that is not written by a commercial interest (like the cruise lines themselves), and I found that very helpful as well. The information is very unbiased and well organized. We were able to find the perfect cruise for us.
First of all, it seems like several of the cruise apps out there are from cruise lines themselves - I like how this one isn't connected with a company or sponsor and offers high-quality, unbiased information, details and reviews.
This app is good for beginners or experienced cruisers thanks to its wealth of information, tips and photos. You'll definitely learn something you didn't know before and be helped in your trip planning!
