What's New in Version 2.18
The app worked, but in the wrong way.
I tried this app even after reading some of the negative reviews. The app gave me ship info, and I opted not to pay for the services offered. I just used it to keep up with what was happening on the ship. I turned off my cellular data, and connected to the ships wifi for the duration of the trip. While out to sea I kept getting notifications, and text messages. I thought it was strange, but I assumed the messages were just slipping through their system. I checked on several occasions to make sure my data was off, and it was. Well lo and behold I get close to home to a message that says my data was suspended due to high international data usage. I called a number that was given, and they told me I had used 28 megabytes of data while away on this cruise. The amount charged for this data was in excess of $500. I argued up and down with the person on the phone and they told me that I must have left my data on. I explained my steps for turning the data off, and explained that it was still off. The lady told me that I had been using data for the entirety of my cruise. Well I actually got two messages while I was arguing with the lady, and my data was still turned off. Just want others to know, and beware I will be fighting this as far as I can.
Disconnects from ship’s WIFI network often meaning unreliable for texting
I found the messaging feature of this app, which cost $7.99 per user, to be unreliable, while cruising on the Jewel, from April 11th through April 18th, 2015. This app would report that my iPhone was no longer connected to the ship’s WIFI network, often, yet when I checked the WIFI signal strength, it showed the maximum. There was no audible alert, when this happened. So I’d be clueless, that I could no longer receive text from friends on the ship. It would typically be when I tried to text them, that I’d see the app had disconnected. To get reconnected, required a quit and restart cycle of this app. Assuming that the WIFI signal does disappear at certain points on the ship, the app should reconnect, when the signal improves, but this version does not. The text interface is rather crude. You can’t send a message to a group of friends, or copy a message once it has been transmitted to a friend.
Being able to check on your bill, is a nice feature that the app supports.
Right idea, but execution is bad.
The idea is great. Countdown before cruise, stats and communication is a good idea. $7.95 per device is excessive, especially considering the wifi disconnects and reconnects making the service a little intermittent .. I think 7.95 per stateroom would be more reasonable. Like others we had strange cases of a random text or email come through despite airplane mode the whole trip. Itinerary is not available in app and ship map is limited. A PDF of the boat in your iBooks before you leave is the best way to go.
NCL, points for creativity but you have to make it work!
