Shore Excursion Filters & Search: For some ports, we have 100+ excursion options, with a wide range of options from "Manatee Wrangling" to the "Bye Bye Ship Tequila Tour" (both made up). It *was* a bit overwhelming. Now, you can find "Search" and "Filters" for all tours. Choose your ideal excursion based on Price (ex $100 - $200), Type (ex.

Could be great

Pitts Pilot

I'm not going to lie, this app could be great if the features work very good. But they don't. It has got some great features and has been well thought out but executed poorly. They do not allow you to delete your account. You have to ask them for permission and give them a good enough reason for them to delete your account. You can't even remove your profile picture! Lol. You can only change it. You may look at someone else's profile and it may say that they have 20 pictures but they only have 8 and it may say that they have 2 reviews and they have 12. There are issues with every feature on this app and most could be corrected. Some are no fault of their's such as a ship's location or itinerary change due to weather. I am guessing that the reason they don't allow you to delete your account is they boast of the number of users to advertisers. Maybe they're trying to build it up and sell it? Whatever the reason, I don't like it.

Best Cruising App Ever

Minion rush queen

I would definitely highly recommend getting this app! You get real reviews, pictures, and maps about any ship or port. You can look at future itineraries, ship stats, tips about cruising, and so so much more. It is very informative and super fun too. The countdown to my cruise makes me happy every time I open the app! Seriously, if you want to research ships/ports this is the perfect app.

A suggestion to the team for improvements would be having a way that when you are exploring a port you can see when and which ships are going there. That is my only suggestion. Great work, keep it up!

Quick! Download the app before you board your ship, and get tons of information😊

Thanks for the great feedback! We really hope to earn that fifth star from you.

A great app for new and experienced cruisers


A place to learn from experienced folks and to share your wisdom and experiences. Also a fun way to keep the excitement and anticipation bubbling. See pictures taken by cruisers. Read reviews of folks fresh off the cruise. The cruise cam is a bit glitchy and the specific cruise board tends to be quiet...but if you go to the general board for your particular ship you will find valuable information to help enhance your cruise experience... do not recommend many apps...but for cruisers and potential cruisers this is great
