Would be nice if they added the live map... otherwise, it was great!
Great chat!
Clc1a on 7/20/2017
We used this to communicate between 5 family members throughout our cruise. We also "favorited" activities daily so we all knew what we were going to do each day. Great app for our cruise!
Great App!
Wig 5s on 7/20/2017
This app is simple and easy to navigate. One thing that would be cool the have included is the position of the ship and al the navigational information that you have available on the television. That would be a cool feature to have incorporated. Also, you could incorporate a customer support chat feature or a way to order room service from the app.
Great app
DsmtLMT1969 on 7/17/2017
This was a great app for our cruises this Summer
Useful when it would connect
Lbt1014 on 7/16/2017
I loved it when it worked but at times on the Carnival Dream it would not connect. Overall it was better than not having a way to communicate with family on board. The features were great and easy to use. Loved being able to check my account and see what was going on around the ship. Just work on connectivity and you will have a super app!
Awesome app, better download.
Light beat on 7/15/2017
Works really great. Simple to use. You can do a lot with it. Highly recommend it. If goi on a cruise you need this app. Promise.
Awesome App, MUST HAVE for every Cruise!
SFarmer09 on 7/15/2017
This was my first time using the Carnival HUB App. I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to operate it. I planned out daily activities with reminders for us. The best part was how the app provided the locations for every activity, this made it very easy to maneuver around the ship without getting lost. I will definitely use it again!
Great Carnival HUB app!
qctrudy on 7/13/2017
The app made it possible to see everything going on, look at menus and keep track of your spending. Great app and easy to use!

Mccaagirl on 7/10/2017
This is the best app to use while cruising. It was a great communication tool to use with my family. We all loved it!
Easy to use
RatchetCruiser on 7/10/2017
Loved it.
Great new addition
Love jays on 7/10/2017
Great addition to Carnival family and keeping up with technology. Just got back from Bermuda aboard Sunshine and this app worked great. No need to carry the flyer all day it was a great way of keeping up with activities and events. Only issue was the billing, my account summary was inaccurate but is was quickly rectified. Hopefully the app and the wifi access will be improved as time passes

Great app. Never had a problem with it. Loved the favorites/reminder feature. Disappointed some activities, like Tea Time, weren't listed as an activity. Didn't use the Chat function. Will use it next time.
A must
Seba_Castro_ on 7/9/2017
This app is a must if you cruise with Carnival. You can plan your day and most important you can view your account summary.
Cruise easy
Mom Keeping Track Of Kids on 7/9/2017
We loved the app. Everything we needed to know was at our fingertips. The chat feature made it easy to locate our family and the cost is very reasonable for chat. Only thing missing was when something costs extra putting the cost in description.
Best carnival app
Alexis3214 on 7/8/2017
This app is amazing from setting a list for your day to tracking where your friends are
Overall Good
NakamuraNoKaOi on 7/6/2017
Chat function did not work while in room. This was the case for all 15 in my group. Also, sometimes several in our group did not get the messages sent. So that would get annoying when trying to set up cruise events. I'd give the chat function 3 Stars. Outside of the chat function, the other functions were really good. I'd use it again.
The Dream
Wiley/Johnson on 7/6/2017
Had an awesome time the week before the 4th. Grand-daughter loved 0 2. With the rest of the teenagers
Made everything so much easier!
--.*•.•*.-- on 7/3/2017
Schedules, pictures, reminders and more!
Worked great!
Big Albroski on 7/3/2017
Worked great the entire 7days! Just wish it had something where you can track where the rest of your party was on the ship that would be awesome!!
Great for the cruise
Thomas#9 on 7/3/2017
Very fun and easy to use, I did have a few glitches but guest services fixed my problems. Very nice people. Definitely recommend the app! Have fun on your cruise!
App was handy!
andreayama on 7/2/2017
App was handy to plan your day especially sea days. You earmark your favorite events on the ship and it sends you notifications to remind you. Also useful to view and monitor your current bill. Really like having the chat (group or individual) feature but wish that everyone in your party had to pay $5 to use it especially since it was spotty and inconsistent. Seems to me that this feature needs the bugs fixed. Once that is fixed, it would be a great way to get in touch with everyone in your party instantaneously. Wish this app worked off the ship though. It only worked while using carnival wifi. I was trying reach someone on the ship who was using this app but I couldn't chat while off the ship. Overall, I was happy to use the app and would download it again.
On its way to being a great app.
MommiZ;-) on 7/2/2017
This was a handy app for our recent cruise. We were able to see what was happening and set reminders for the activities we wanted to do. We did pay for the chat function. It was ok. It worked most of the time. I also liked that you could see the dinner menu at the restaurants. That really helped in planning when and where we wanted to eat. I wish it had the activities for camp ocean listed. I made do and took a picture of the brochure. I did the same thing with the fitness center brochure too. It did have a lot of the answers to questions we had during our trip. Overall, I liked the app and will use it again on future cruises.
Just got off of the Carnival Magic
kdsumner on 7/2/2017
I love this app!! It is a very helpful tool to have on board. The idea that I can view my account summary or see what the menu is at any of the restaurants is great. Much easier to keep track of the kids video arcade spending. Thank you for this app.
Always in the Know
Peacefilled on 7/1/2017
Loved this app while on the cruise. It gave me reminders for the events I ❤️ . It gave me details of events, menu selections for the restaurants on ship and when buffets were open. Loved this app!
Great App!
kathydale78 on 7/1/2017
Our group lived this app! We were able to send messages, which was always a huge problem on cruises in the past. We were able to check port and ship activities, menus, and account summaries! We will definitely use this app again! Clemson Group from SC + 1 GA Bulldog!!
Tbabywig on 6/28/2017
This app is there a convenient on keeping track of my family while cruising
Marifull on 6/28/2017
Best app ever for cruise
Cubs48 on 6/27/2017
This was my first cruise to go on, and it was amazing, I'm 16 years old, so I met and made lots of friends, and learned about things that were going on through this app. I was able to text my friends about where we were going to meet up and things like that, my parents always want to know where I'm at, so it is easy to text them, instead of finding them or writing a note and putting it on their door, this is an amazing and helpful app, totally worth $5 to be able to text on the ship.
Nice app - easy to use
MeesieP on 6/27/2017
The improvements from the earlier version of this app is a huge upgrade. The messaging portion still needs a little work for it works okay 90% of the time. It is very easy to navigate and provides usable information from cabin, muster station, dining, and activities.
Very handy!
Tsgarland on 6/27/2017
We loved using the hub app on our recent cruise. We kept our phones with us since we also used it for pictures. With the app, that also meant we had all info we needed with us at all times! It has so much more info than the Fun Times provides. We could check menus, things to do, how to get where we wanted to be etc. We did not use the texting feature but loved everything else!
Better than the social internet option
Duddet1# on 6/26/2017
The social internet option rarely worked. Although the chat option on the app was hit or miss it hit more than miss. The app is great to check you account summary, and find out what's going on while your on the boat
Danibella on 6/26/2017
⭐️ ⭐️ This made it so easy to know what's going on. You can get updates. Love ❤️ the things you want to go to & the app will send you a texts when it's starting. I would definitely pay to do the group chat. 👍👍👍
It's great!
iWouldntEatThat on 6/26/2017
If you use it like it's designed, it's great! Knowing what's going on and where? Getting reminders when activities start? Checking your bill? All perfect!! Facebook it's not.
Md1007583 on 6/25/2017
The app was very useful on the cruise keeping up with things to do and maps to know where to go as well as keeping up with your account info. Great app!

junior sailor on 6/25/2017
I like the app. The app shows you what's going on what open for restaurants as well. It also gives you you own personal map that way you can find you way around the ship. Your app is really awesome. And this is how many thumbs up I give you out of ten/ 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍!!!!!!!!!
Tyler_basson on 6/25/2017
A good way to find out what's going on during the day. Before this app I never even looked at the fun times papers. And the messaging portion was good but could be improved some.
Must Get for Cruisers
Shaie's on 6/24/2017
I loved this app on the cruise! No, you can't play with the app before cruising. But that is understandable, you need your card number to connect. Instead of having to download another app for a countdown, carnival already has one! **New update changed countdown. No longer includes seconds** It's easy to maneuver between everything. The text messages went through fast to each other's phone. The agenda was very useful. I'm excited for the new update!!
Nice app but no group chat
Fayfay2 on 6/24/2017
The app was good for individual chatting but the group chat feature did not work. So individual messages had to be sent which was a pain. Also the app only tells what's happening for adults. It would be nice if teens could see what was happening for them as well. Should give the option to select the group actives for various club, etc...
Great App
Ttbenson on 6/24/2017
This is a great app! It was very helpful. It would be great if it could let you know where you are located while on the ship.
Good but could be better.
Ajaj895 on 6/24/2017
The Carnival Hub app is very useful for finding out what's going on around the ship and for finding places to eat/drink. The messaging system is unreliable with connection resetting every time you close and open the app, and even then messages may or may not send. The app also has a useful map system for the ship you are on and it tells you what muster station that you should go to in case of an emergency. Overall it is a great app for finding stuff to do but not that good as a messaging app if you don't want to buy one of Carnival's internet plans.
Excellent App
Kel729hous on 6/23/2017
This app was a great way to keep up with family and friends on the ship, give directions when friends got separated and keep up with the teens. I will always use this when cruising Carnival!
Not the best
Daytona:) on 6/20/2017
Decent app when it comes to planning your next day, but that's about all it was really good for. Wifi was absolute trash and a waste of money until it was 3am and I was the only one trying to use it. The chat function only half worked messages would always send/be received hours later or not at all. Amazing vacation just wish I wouldn't have wasted my money trying to use the functions this app claims to have.
Must have
Shay-CarnivalSunshine on 6/20/2017
This app was so convenient to see what was going on on the ship. I was able to pick things I wanted to do and get an alert notifying me that 15min before it was about to start. It was more convenient than carrying the Funtimes around.
Wonderful App, Slow Wi-Fi Speed
phillyb091 on 6/19/2017
It's important to separate a review of the app from a review of the Internet speed on the ship. The app seriously is one of the best overall apps I've encountered. It's intuitive, clearly outlines a timeline of activities, allows you to save interesting activities into a "favorites" list, and keeps an accurate track of your expenses on board. Now the Wi-Fi speed ... is atrocious, even at the most expensive premium Internet plan. I found the middle-cost plan the most valuable, as it allows for e-mail and iMessage texts. Websites run super slow on both the middle and premium plans, so don't bother paying for the premium.
Legar roma on 6/18/2017
La App muy útil y práctica. Deberían de permitir que el chat del grupo sea gratis.
Carnival Hub
Tony709 on 6/18/2017
Loved the Hub, although had issues with getting messages unless the app was open. We couldn't always keep it open.
VMAB45 on 6/18/2017
Worked ok all week but was extremely slow.
Very useful!
Kristyprem on 6/18/2017
We traveled with a group of 10 ( 2 of which were teenagers) .. and and it was an easy way to find each other!! Nice way to check for events for the evening!! 🚢👍 Kristy--
Waste of good money. Why charge anyway?
Hotrod8692 on 6/17/2017
The app works ok when it's 5am and no one else is on the wifi. Don't even try to use it the rest of the time. Works good to check your bill. It'll hook right up for that!!! Can't even get to the feedback to complain! If you need to contact your friends just call their room and set up meeting places. The Wifi on the Glory was a complete waste of money. They should be ashamed to even ask you to pay for it. Why offer wifi if it isn't good enough to work for everyone? So done with Carnival. Royal Caribbean here we come.
This is awesome GET IT
Modelisawsome on 6/17/2017
This app is awesome you can do ext your family for $5 a day that's crazy I know but theirs more you can see what's going on HOPE YOU LOVE ♥️ it make sure to get this app 😘😘
