Customer Reviews

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

Great app

This is a great app, especially for first time cruisers. I give it all stars. I am able to hear and see all I need to before I cruise by real people who are either on a cruise, just getting on or getting off and information on excursions, ports etc. plus you are able to get more detailed information with the opportunity to chat with other cruisers about their experience.
this is a very useful site, a must have for all cruisers. 👍

Growing App; Getting Stronger!

Since beginning to use this app it has grown in its awesomeness. The last couple of updates have put it so close to "5-Stars" it was hard not to rate it such right now. It is one of the handiest apps for information about cruise lines, ships, destinations and what to do while at those destinations. The reviews are from actual cruisers and not a paid "tourism review guru" thats getting compensated for misleading you. If you don't use any other cruise apps be sure to at least use "SHIP MATE!"
