Nice app and great for keeping in touch with family and knowing what’s going on. Would be really nice if I could access the carnival website to check on possible future cruises while in the ship.
Perfect app for knowing what’s going on
Swinney23 on 1/20/2018
This app will allow you to view all the ships activities and favorite them. If your smart phone allows you can then receive reminders when the activities are about to begin. You can also view shore excursions at your ports, sign up for ship WiFi for internet access as well as view your current ship board charges. As I said it’s the perfect app for cruising
Helpful but buggy
rawr4211 on 1/20/2018
This app is helpful during the cruise to find what is going on each day, but the shore excursions page didn’t work on two of our families phones. Also the chat system that you have to pay 5 dollars to use was super delayed and we eventually gave up using it. The first few days constantly logged us off the wifi that we paid for before it started working consistently later in the cruise. However the other features were done well and were great.
Great app
Kal4/14 on 1/15/2018
Loved this app, used this while on our cruise, and was great for signing in and watching our countdown
A must for a Carnival cruise
Jlmarnp on 1/15/2018
We just returned from a cruise traveling with 11 other people. There is no other way to communicate. We used it in a group to communicate with all of us as well as individually. Everything that a person needs to know such as menus, what’s happening on the ship, how much has been spent on the boat, etc is on the app. Download it before leaving or you won’t be able to.
coforge on 1/14/2018
I would have been better off using Wallis Talkies. $5 completely and utterly wasted.
Nicckie6 on 1/12/2018
Easy way to keep in touch with family, entertainment, and your spending.
Must have!
Loveeeeeeeeee this app on 1/11/2018
It helps you stay connected to family and tell u all the fun things happening in the app at at your finger tips it lets your book excursions, tell you what time dinner is, what to wear to dinner, what’s open what’s close, how much money on your sign and sail card and so much more!
Core features great; Chat app really buggy
ChezBoudreaux on 1/8/2018
App’s free features are excellent—ship maps with searchable directional locators, current and overall events schedule, even down to correct daily menus at the restaurant. Expense app was accurate and helpful. But chat feature is very buggy—delay in receiving messages, established/named groups lose members but they continue to get messages and write (come up as ‘null’), etc.
Must have
JennBroom on 1/7/2018
This was such a great thing to have, it was great to have the menu’s ahead of time, reminders and maps for favorite events. And the chat feature ($5 per person for the cruise duration) was SO worth it! The only reason I did not give it 5 Stars was really due to the message that popped up continuously and annoyingly about the WiFi on the ship.
Easy to use & Convenient!!!
Breezy Real_Deal on 1/7/2018
I absolutely LOVE this app. I use it every time I go on a cruise. The $5 chat is worth it because it allows you to keep in touch with others on the boat. I’m hoping Carnival releases an Apple Watch version on this app soon!!
Cruise agent on 1/5/2018
I was on the Carnival Magic in December. I’m going on the Carnival Ecstasy April 4, 2018. I reset the count down clock but it wont let me put in the ship. It still thinks I’m going on the Magic. How can I reset ship?
Great Cruise App
PXDuck on 1/4/2018
Highly recommend, it was very helpful on our first cruise. Helps get u places on time and get the most out of the activities on the cruise.
Great app
Noname42 on 1/4/2018
If you cruise with Carnival you need this App. Having every thing right at my fingertips was an amazing upgrade from carrying the paper schedule around. The chat feature was great. Let’s you know what the dinner attire is. Just over all great additions. Thank you Carnival
Download Before You Sail
paped on 1/2/2018
This a great application but easier to download on dry land before you set sail. This is a quality application. Get it.
Great app!
rcronk on 12/31/2017
This is a very useful app while on a cruise. We used it to look at what was happening for the day, marking the events we wanted to do as favorites, then we got notifications before each event and could look at just our favorites for the day too. We also used it to see what was being charged by each member of our party on the sail & sign cards. A few suggestions to make it even better: It would be nice to be able to select a location like a theater and see only the things that would be happening at that location that day. Maybe there’s a way to do that but I couldn’t find it. A bunch of FAQ’s for guest services, events, excursions, etc. would be nice if that’s not already in there. The “rate this app” functionality at the end of the cruise is broken. Instead of opening the carnival hub app in the App Store to rate it, it opens the App Store app and says it can’t connect to the App Store. If I instead just search for it in the App Store, I can find and rate it just fine. This was broken the same way whether connected to carnival’s WiFi or my home’s WiFi.
Thats Her... on 12/31/2017
Great app! Helps you know whats going on on the cruise ship and keep tabs of your spending.
Useful & a must-have
shawjr on 12/31/2017
The app is pretty useful when you need to know what is for dinner, what dinner attire is, activities and more. It offers the correct ship time in order to make it on and off ports without stressing, although you cannot access the chat while off the ship. The chat feature is super helpful—as often on the ship there isn’t service, even if the WiFi package is purchased. We did have to download the app before we departed the dock, or it can be accessed through any web browser on the ship at We also had some technical difficulties with the program, which is why I am rating 4 stars. We often found the messages wouldn’t send and/or receive messages even after restarting the app. Overall, this app is definitely a must-have but could use some slight improvements.
Must Have App!
CTJohnstone on 12/31/2017
If you are on a Carnival Fun Ship you need this app. It provides a listing of the events and happenings around the ship, allows you to “favorite” activities, and will remind you a few minutes before they happen. You can look at the events for the entire cruise when you wish (we did so on the first day). You can see menus for all dining options, and can chat among your party. All for the low price of $5 per person for the entire cruise. It was up and down for our recent cruise on the Pride, but Carnival refunded the price and let us use it for the rest of the cruise. Well worth it in my opinion!
Eh Review
Katie1593 on 12/31/2017
You’ll definitely need this for your cruise! Only crappy thing is that you won’t receive notifications from the chat feature unless you are ON the application itself. We often missed chats from each other because we didn’t have the application open.
Good app
Want Skee Ball on 12/29/2017
Good app. Easy to use and helpful info bout menus, things going on, and where everything is. Only 4 stars because the local weather was always wrong. It would say it’s snowing and -15 degrees F when we were docked on Cozumel. Hahahaha! It was as though it was getting a feed from somewhere very cold!
Great App
Tanya510 on 12/28/2017
A must have to keep up with the activities on the ship. I love it!
Really good app
WR1U on 12/28/2017
This app worked great onboard for our family using the chat option. It kept us up to date on everything going on all the food available and shore excursion purchases were easy.
_Kierstiee_ on 12/26/2017
This is a good app for when your on the cruise but please make it available to the family not aboard the ship
Fun Cruise
Living To Make A Difference! on 12/26/2017
Overall this app was helpful. It was useful to use the chat feature with others in our group on the boat and at $5 per person it was much cheaper than WiFi and using our phones. The app was very helpful with daily activities and menus for restaurants. We also liked the weather feature. However, we feel like there are a few things that keep us from giving it 5 stars: 1) the app does not include the children’s activities for Camp Ocean (at least they weren’t there for our cruise) so we had to use the paper schedules for that. 2) the app did not self-refresh so we had to fully close the app daily to update information, including receiving chat messages
A must have

Wishing the beef and pork they served me was 25%the quality of this app
Great app
653464me on 12/26/2017
This app is a must even if you’ve cruised before. It tells you everything that is going on during your trip and what’s happening every hr. My family traveled with 16 people and we were able to text from the app and It only cost $5 for the entire cruise. Isn’t that great.and you are able to access all your funds for you on board account.
Stay connected with the group
gumdr90 on 12/24/2017
We had a wonderful cruise on the Carnival Dream. Hub allowed us to text with our group of seven with the phones on airplane mode. Great app!
Great App To Use
jahmyah12😎😇 on 12/24/2017
This app is great to use when you want to talk to your other ship members you came with when they are doing something else or when you want to tell them something.
Solid APP
Zach d mans on 12/24/2017
Pretty Solid app to use throughout the cruise. It has great features such as information about the next place you are headed (port of call). Also, it has all of the cruise events and shops times. It has the “fun times” on it daily; which tells you what events are happening throughout the day. LASTLY, the best thing is that you can chat with your people on the app for $5 per device. My wife and I did not really need it since we were together with no kids to separate with, but we used it a few times!! Overall, I HIGHLY recommend you at least have the app throughout your voyage to have a schedule of events with you and to have information that you may need. (P.S. the daily dinner menu is on there, as well. My wife and I ate... a lot.... a whole lot...and loves every moment of it....ENJOY)
Great app
LISAG0922 on 12/23/2017
Loved being able to see daily menus, schedules, photos, shore excursions and charges. Credits need to be added to the account Summary so you know how much you really spent. Chat feature is a great idea, however, if it isn’t open you don’t receive the message. That needs fixed. It really is a great tool.
A must have
CrabbyCancer13 on 12/21/2017
If you’re going on a Carnival Cruise, you NEED to get this app. It allowed as you to access the menu for the dining room for your entire ship, lets you know what is open or when a place opens, and it has an amazing chat feature that is well worth the $5 fee. The chat feature allows you to talk to other members of your group as longs as you have the app open. This app also allows you to see a list of activities that are occurring and when they start. All you have to do if you want to do an activity is tap the heart next to the activity. You then get a reminder that the activity starts soon 15 minutes before the activity begins. It also allows you to keep track of the charges made on your Sail and Sign Card (the room key that you receive prior to embarking) by showing you how much you spent and when/where you spent it. All in all, this is a great app and a must have when going on a Carnival Cruise.
Keep Up with Family Onboard
Tide fan101 on 12/21/2017
A MUST Have APP! It’s great for keeping up with friends/family and their locations on the ship as everyone goes to different, fun time activities. No more wasting time searching for them when you could be relaxing by the pool. Too bad they didn’t have this years ago when we were using walkie talkies! You can also check the itinerary and know what games, shows, trivia, etc are happening & where. Check weather where you are at and where you are going, and much more. Love it!
Great app
Merlock Holmes on 12/18/2017
This app was excellent on the cruise. I was on airplane mode the whole time but was able to connect and see what was happening. If you favorite something you can see all your favorites. The chat feature ($5) was totally worth it as well to communicate with friends and find out where people are sitting at events. You can also see which friends are attending which event if they favorited it. Make sure to download the app before the boat leaves the first port or you won't have wifi to get it.
Great app
amos77833 on 12/17/2017
Love seeing what activities are going on for the day and what food was available.
What’s Happening now . . .
Chaps Reese on 12/17/2017
Enjoyed using the app. Way better than carrying around the Fun Times paper with me on the ship👍🏽. And the chat feature was worth it👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
Need to have but needs improvement
Melizamr on 12/16/2017
With all the stuff going on on the ship this is amazing to have. If you have multiple people on your booking it's great for communicating where and when to meet using the chat option... 100% worth the $5 for the entirety of the cruise. The downside of the app is that the the app has to be restarted a lot due to freezing and non update of the times(though that could have been our crappy ship). Definitely a required download to have the most fun.
Great app
Omegawild on 12/16/2017
Great app. Gives a one stop shop for all the info needed during the cruise. Definitely recommend getting the chat feature. Would be nice to have a search/filter feature though
Must Have APP for Carnival Cruise
teamBubba12 on 12/14/2017
The app itself is fantastic. It has a complete itinerary of all the days activities. I love that it provides a snap shot where each activity ease. So if you don’t know where the “Dynasty Lounge” is, the map will show you in the activity. It also sends you alerts 15 minutes before an activity starts based on what activities you have marked as favorites.
Well done app for organizing all the fun
Cat meow 369 on 12/14/2017
Enjoyed using the app on my cruise this week... dinner menus, available open food options, weather, links to carnival website that she require a paid internet package. I really liked being able to mark “favorite” activities and see who on my group was also interested, and it gave reminders for those specific events 15 min beforehand... really helped me not feel overwhelmed trying to remember which activities that I wanted to check out. Worked well anywhere I went on the ship. Requires you to be on the ship and on Carnival internet (no charge to access the app)
Connectivity Problems with Chat
peace318 on 12/12/2017
As other reviewers have stated, this app is great for navigating the many entertainment options on the ship. You can add events to your Favorites and then the app gives you a reminder 15 minutes prior to the event. You can also use this app to view the dining room menus to decide which appetizers, entrees, and deserts you’d like for the evening. What it doesn’t have: This app does not list the children’s events. Carnival provides activities at “Camp Carnival” for three age groups: 2-5 years, 6-10 years, and 9-11 years. They also have youth programs for older children: “Circle C” for 12-14 years, and “Club O2” for 15-17 years. NONE of the daily activity schedules for children and youth are included on the app. If you want to know which activities are scheduled each day for kids, you have to physically go to that location and pick up a brochure. Having this information would be a great improvement to the app. The best and worst part of the app is Chat. It’s great to be able to contact family members on the ship once we have split up. The freedom to communicate “Meet me on the Lido deck for the sunset”, or “I’m going to Bingo and then heading back to the room” so members of your cruise group can get in touch with you (and vice-versa) is powerful. However, numerous times people in my group reported that Chat wasn’t connected. For some reason, the app would state that we weren’t connected to Carnival WiFi but when we checked the WiFi in our phone Settings, we were in fact connected. This interference in communication made it difficult to coordinate meeting up with each other. Some messages pushed through hours later while some simply disappeared. (For example, my Mother-in-law sent a message to my husband that showed up on her Chat but never showed up on his Chat). Just be aware that if you purchase this app, you may have some connectivity problems.
There is an App for that!
netty girl on 12/10/2017
I loved using the Hub app for cruising! We were able to choose activities we were interested in and save them as a favorite. Then a reminder was sent 15 minutes before the event started. Check the menus and dining times, excursions times and details, and account balances! The chat feature was so worth the $5 for the whole trip. Love, love, loved it!❤️
Very great app
Krmurphy86 on 12/10/2017
This app is awesome! I was able to keep in touch with my friends and family on the ship. I love being able to keep track of my spending. I also made great use of the schedule on the ship. Definitely will use this again on our next cruise.
Great app
I285 on 12/9/2017
This app made it easy to keep up with what’s going on on the ship. The best thing about the app is it helps keep up with your account balance.
Great...when it works
JenJenDC on 12/9/2017
As other reviewers have said, there are a number of noteworthy features here. 1) Chat - texting friends and groups 2) Food and drinks - find available options 3) Map - figure out how to get where you want to go on the ship 4) Activities - favorite them and it will give you an alert when it’s about to start 5) Excursions - read up on options and book from the app! No waiting in line at the excursions desk. Why only 4 stars? Chat was buggy and somewhat unreliable. When it worked, it was wonderful. Excursions never displayed on my iPhone X. I was only able to book using iPad Pro.
iPhone X
BrianSMcDonald on 12/9/2017
I’ll give you a 5 star review once the app is updated to support the iPhone X! Also you have an app that doesn’t allow me to look at and/or book future cruises?! That should definitely be a feature for this app!
8 day cruise
Triton514!72 on 12/7/2017
Used the text feature to text 2 others in my party, worked Flawless. Easy to use to see what’s happening during the day. Ship maps. The best was being able to check my account to keep up with spending.
Convenient App!
KNJrehab on 12/7/2017
This app was perfect for the cruise! It had all the answers without having to carry paper folded up in your pocket the entire time. To have it conveniently on my smart phone with the ability to like events I wanted to attend, send reminders before the time came, know what I spent, and to chat with my family/friends for $5 per person the entire trip while aboard the boat was great! I’ll definitely be using this again on my next cruise. Great job Carnival with this one!
Great Time!!
Castle of Dreams on 12/3/2017
This was my first cruise and I had a wonderful time! The cruise director, Chris the Flying Scotsman was an absolute blast and kept the fun going all week! The shows at night in the encore room with the 8 singers/dancers were the best - loved every show. Food was crazy good! This was on the Carnival Dream our of N.O.!! Great trip!!! Henry was great too as our cabin steward!!
Great companion app for the cruise
Fledge Plickmeyer on 12/3/2017
Excellent app, worked with the free Carnival Pride WiFi, you don’t have to purchase WiFi plans to get use of it. CHAT option is great because most users turn off their cell data to not incur roaming charges. I liked having the Happenings schedule handy, the ship maps of each deck, the meal options, menus and schedules; shore excursions info and the ability to monitor charges on the Sail & Sign Card. GREAT APP to use on board!
