Helpful but could be better
honeymoon cruiser on 4/21/2018
This was my first time using the app and it was helpful in trying to keep up with the activities however I think it would have been helpful if the assigned dining room menus were posted, the chatting portion of the app was free and if the app would allow you to order room service or drinks from the app
Is this a bug?
gblk2001 on 4/21/2018
I’m going on a carnival cruise so I downloaded this app. I was told I could tour the ship and activities while on the cruise but all I see is the count down to the cruise screen.
It’s okay
Kandi_RN on 4/21/2018
Overall the app was awesome. It was a go to every time we wanted to know something when we wanted to know it. I especially liked the account feature! The only downfall was the chat feature. It did not work for us at all! We tried several times to use it, one time was urgent. And this feature cost $5.00. I will continue to use it. Maybe not the chat feature tho.
1st Time Cruiser
TBMingo on 4/21/2018
A MUST HAVE!!! I know all the events that was offered daily! I was even able to PREVIEW and order my photos, and they delivered them to my room. I was able to keep tabs on my account statements so i didn’t over spend 👌🏾 a must have! Carnival Vista 2018.
Beautiful app!
Chris14501 on 4/20/2018
One thing I love about the app that it allows you to see how much longer till your amazing cruise.And it allows you to communicate with your friends and family while on the ship all by that one app.You must get this app if your going on a carnival cruise download the freakin app because it’s amazing.The developers are amazing thanks for a fantastic cruise and app!
Great app!
SparksNicole on 4/20/2018
Loved this app. Loved that we could mark our favorites things happening and then get a reminder of it starting. Loved the chat feature! Loved that we could see our photos and buy from our phone.
App is good
kamlaj on 4/19/2018
5 stars
Way better than I expected
Wwkarma on 4/15/2018
Used the app all last week aboard the Vista, and it was outstanding. You don’t need to buy their WiFi service to use it, although the chat function will cost each user $5, and we found it to be totally worth it. The app is responsive, constantly up to date, and super helpful, in finding out what’s happening, what restaurants are open, and for a quick search for deck locations of venues. I referenced it constantly.
Great to have
Macty23 on 4/14/2018
Hey you need to have this
A need for a cruise but needs a little more
Starrhorselove on 4/14/2018
This app shows you almost everything you need while the ship and the $5 chat plan I 100% worth it. The app helps you keep track of upcoming events you want to go to and keeps track of how much money you have spent on your sign and sail card. It provides a countdown until your cruise also. I gave it 4 stars because it could use some updates. You can only get messages notifications while the app is open and the app does not help at all while at the ports. It would be very helpful if you can have a map while on shore. Even though it could use some updates it is a must have for your cruise
Fun to use...a little glitchy
BCruiser09 on 4/14/2018
Had fun using the app while I was on the ship. It’s loaded with useful features and the inter-guest texting was a fair deal at $5 for the duration of the cruise; but it did cut out on occasion resulting in missed connections with friends. I’d also like to see Carnival bring back the option of seeing printed photos while on the ship. The app was convenient and probably cheaper for Carnival since they don’t need to print pics people aren’t going to buy, but it was fun mingling with guests and sharing the results of how pics turned out with others. The app is a little impersonal for sharing photos. But overall a very useful app while onboard.
The Timer...
ScooldleDragonGirl on 4/12/2018
Of course this app is perfect for cruises-it is designed for that, and perfectly. My only issue is that the countdown timer is...messed up. There is a just a ton of numbers mashed into each other. It is a big disappointment because when you are not on a cruise, that is the only other thing that the app does, and I really wish that it worked. Other than that, this is app is amazing.
Great App
Kwadlified on 4/12/2018
Great app for the most part, very handy especially if you don’t want to carry around the activities that are going on around the ship. All activities are not listed on the app but for the most part the majority of them are. One downfall that I found in the app was the account summary that was posted for my billing. It wasn’t accurate not sure if this had to due with using a card for purchases made on the ship, but I found charges way over then what I actually charged. All in all good app though can’t wait to connect again! “CIAO for Now”
Glitchy but definitely useful
Sokiyq2 on 4/9/2018
This app was most definitely useful. All the features worked very well except for the chat feature. We really needed to use this since we had a babysitter stay with our three-year-old in the room during naptime. Unfortunately it was hard to relax completely when we were out and about since the chat feature worked about 60 to 70% of the time. So sometimes we would go down and check on them just to make sure all was well.
Great Cruise
Nick.Osborne on 4/8/2018
Great overall experience for me first cruise let me know where everything was at what time and was very helpful for communication although there were some times that people didn’t get messages or were in groups and didn’t get messages so you could fix that but overall really great and highly recommend the cruise and app!
Don’t leave home without it!
Teacher Jewel on 4/8/2018
Highly recommend. This app is so useful to have on your cruise! I had the app and my in laws didn’t, they were constantly checking with me on what was happening around the ship and where we could go for food at that moment. Internet is poor onboard and they couldn’t download the app after we set sail. However, if you already have the app, it works perfectly without internet. I downloaded the app a week before the cruise and the kids loved the count down feature. We accessed the app 5-10 times a day. There are ship maps, weather, and a search feature. I wouldn’t cruise without it.
Amazing app!!
tommysgirl808 on 4/7/2018
A must for your carnival cruise!! The app is wonderful! The chat app is $5.00 a phone for the duration of your cruise and it worked beautifully!! The account summary and excursions and what’s happening on the app top notch!!!
Hub App
Kclark85 on 4/7/2018
Great app and a must have. All cruise information right at your finger tips!!
Dream and the app
Dale Black on 4/5/2018
I think it would be very useful to also have a way to explore the next port through the app. Such as a history and interesting facts about the local people and econometrics of the area.
Almost perfect
jsiders on 4/3/2018
Awesome to see ship charges, dining menus and times, shows, basically everything. Paid the $5 for chat but messages didn’t always come through right away or sometimes until you actually opened the app (push wasn’t working all the time). Also- add the kids club times and schedule please.
Hub app a must!
Vlarn on 4/1/2018
While I like not being attached to my phone on a vacation cruise, I really loved this app. It change my thinking about locking my phone in my cabin safe. I only utilized the Hub. No text, no e-mail, no calls, just the Hub. The ability to select my favorite activities and receive a reminder was priceless. Viewing our pictures was great! Checking my account was another handy feature. I was able to see the menus ahead of time, and decide where to dine. It beat taking the Fun Times around with me.
Great app while on board
Sister Gross on 4/1/2018
This is a must have while on board. It gives pop up reminders of events that you want to attend if you mark them as a favorite. I wish they had more information/details about the kids club events.
Great when it worked
abnalley on 3/31/2018
Great for knowing when and where things were happening but missing some gym activities and the chat feature only worked some of the time.
nmbdancer15 on 3/30/2018
As much as it costs to go on a tr, it was insulting to pay $5 more for this app❗️Enjoyed app. Felt like you were now nickel & diming me too death! Insultinting❗️
Not good
Tisha;D on 3/29/2018
This was useful for some, but for me it was useless. It wouldn’t allow me to add Family members. It was a waste of money that I won’t get back. Everything I needed to know were given in hand outs delivered to each room.
Stef A Nee on 3/26/2018
Loved the app! Traveled with a group of friends on different decks and with the chat feature we were able to keep up with one another and also see the events going on that we wanted to attend
A definite must have
Jatjr777 on 3/24/2018
Overall this is a really great. There are only two critiques I would make. 1. As a parent it would be great to have the kids club schedules added to the app. 2. My family experienced multiple times where texts wouldn’t be received and the app needed to be closed and reopened.
Amazing App
kennedygc05 on 3/24/2018
This app was super helpful during our vacation. It was easy to use and helpful. It told us all the events and times. It kept our schedule straight and we felt more relaxed. The chat feature was worth it because I got to text my crew and tell them where I was or where we could meet. Overall, I love this app and it is a must have for a carnival cruise!
Great app for the ship
Trpham on 3/23/2018
If your going on a carnival cruise this is an app to have it helps with everything from menus to the restaurants to activities to short scourgings to even an application to chat with friends. This is the best app I’ve seen on all the cruise line so far I wish that the other ones had this because it was a lifesaver for my cruise
A must have
Jerry Mouse5517 on 3/23/2018
It’s a must have if going on a carnival cruise. I just wish that it would use the whole screen on the iPhone X.
Definitely worth using to keep in touch
De from Texas on 3/19/2018
This is a must have around the Carnival ships, we just took our kids for a spring break cruise and it was the only way to keep up with them. I highly recommend it.
App crashed all the time
SLORue on 3/18/2018
Everyone in my group saw the app crash a bunch.
Great app, it can only get better!!!
Ajbbaseball on 3/18/2018
Awesome app!!!
Good start
Kerlmax on 3/17/2018
Not a bad app, but had some technical difficulties. First day of the cruise the itinerary never came up for me. The chat feature for five dollars doesn’t notify you while the app isn’t active. Messages failed to send. It was nice to see the menus and activities. That part worked most of the time.
Pikamonachu on 3/17/2018
Just got off of my second Carnival cruise. This app was an amazing addition to our trip!! You have the complete schedule of shows and activities, food menus, excursion options, weather, dining dress code for the day, the ship map, and MORE all in the comfort of a FREE app!! You have the option of paying $5 for the chat feature, but this only works between you and others with the app. It does take the ships wifi to use, but it requires you to have airplane mode turned on so there is no risk of accidentally being charged roaming fees. Overall an amazing app!
iPhone X
Josh😁 on 3/15/2018
They app is great, but it needs to be updated to support the iPhone X screen size
This app is a must for CCL cruisers!
Sid97x on 3/14/2018
It is free! This app shows what is happening on the ship as well as tons of vital info. You can mark your favorite events with reminder notifications. Download before you sail! Do it now!
Lots of bugs
GasperiD on 3/12/2018
App hasn’t been optimized for iPhone X. Chat feature built into the app cost 5 dollars. If the app isn’t running you won’t get chats notifications. Constantly had to kill and restart app so my chats would roll in. If you are going to charge 5 dollars for a feature it better work flawlessly.
JCrum on 3/11/2018
Good app but needs to be updated to fit screen of iPhone X
Must have for your Carnival Cruise
Rick467 on 3/11/2018
This app is awesome! It allows you to see everything going on in your cruise right at your finger tips. We didn’t know about this app prior to boarding and wondered how we were going to communicate with 16 people in our party. The app itself is free, but if you want chat it is $5 (one time purchase) for each device you want to chat with. We were able to communicate easily. The other feature I loved was the favorites. All the activities are listed and you can mark which you want to attend. The app will let you know when it’s going to start.
Awesome App
mitima on 3/11/2018
Great app. No matter what age. No running around to find out what’s on menus at dining halls, where, what, and when activities are. Keep In touch with friends and family. Discover information about your next ports. It is easy useful and a must to have.
Forenzik on 3/10/2018
I love Carnival! The app works great! Such a great help!
Super convenient
carnival fan. on 3/10/2018
The app really helped stay on top of what was happening when. Loved it!
Do not give them $5 for chatting
CM-2947 on 3/4/2018
We were on the Carnival Freedom and the texts/chats were unreliable to the point of being useless. Sometimes there were instant, others they were delivered hours later or not at all. Didn’t really care about the other features, but we weren’t happy that they suckered $5 out of all 10 of us for chatting.
Good App
CJ21RR on 3/4/2018
The only complaint I have about the app is the chat feature. It was definitely not worth the extra 5 bucks because it never worked. Everything else about this app worked perfectly. We were able to plan out our day with ease with all the activities on board.
Get this app if you’re planning on taking a carnival cruise!
Nannerboo2014 on 3/3/2018
This app is so super helpful! It gives you times for everything and food menus and reminds you when things you’ve favorited are about to start! It is a must have for all cruisers! I wouldn’t have made it around the ship without it!
Must have
natalienb on 2/26/2018
All ship activity is on the app. You get the weather forecast for ports of call. You can like activities and get notifications when they start. Chat is glitchy at time but works 90% of the time. Account summary is updated almost instantly.
Well worth the money!!
Brittanicq1516 on 2/25/2018
We rely so much on technology to keep in contact with everyone. This app was great for that, especially since we traveled with a large group.
Worth the download
3712ken on 2/24/2018
This was the saving grace on the cruise. Ships map deck by beck, restaurant, nightclubs, locations, Menus, and entertainment times. Keep up with the family and friends along with your onboard account. A must have..
A Must-Have App on your trip!
your-reviewer on 2/24/2018
This app allows you to schedule your activities. If you don’t want to waste time looking for your paper maps and programs, this app is for you. My trip was filled with memorable activities and experiences. Enjoy your next trip with this app :)
