Great app
ellehcimetoyl on 7/18/2018
The app was helpful in providing updates and much needed information before and during the cruise.
Dropped signal
Snapit66 on 7/17/2018
Enjoyed the app but we had to keep reconnecting because it would keep dropping our connection. Seemed like we would have to reconnect at least twice a day. But to find out what was for lunch or supper it was great. WiFi could be a little better also. Tried utilizing it a few times and it was terrible. We paid good money for something that is 100% profit for Carnival and we can’t even enjoy the use of it. Won’t make that mistake again!
Monsta Meche on 7/17/2018
Extremely helpful app, but wish there were more details on the events. I think there is a way that photos can be uploaded to the app with a trademark on it to be able to see the pics from the room rather than having to visit the photo gallery a couple of times a day. I think the app could also be used to purchase the photos as well that way you can purchase them later on. An online store or even an external link that shows some of the products for purchase could also be helpful. I know some of this may slow it down, but the app could be even more ramped up to be more efficient for cruisers.
Great App but would like a bit more
theo0314 on 7/17/2018
Loved the app. My large group was able to keep in contact with each other. It had the menu which was great and a daily schedule. We loved that. But would have liked a bit more about the ship location tracking and even, if possible, a location tracking to find areas of the ship. This in no part takes away from the great app it already is.
Carnival Sensation App
mpcpsp on 7/16/2018
The App is a wonderful idea especially for people to keep in touch on the ship without breaking the bank but it need lots of ‘tweaking ‘. 95-99% of the time it was not or did not work making it impossible to communicate . Keep working on it!!
SRGfromFL on 7/16/2018
What a great addition to cruising. No more running around with radios! We had 16 in our party so it was wonderful to be able to keep track of everyone. Occasionally it was spotty but we were at sea! I loved that the app gave you a 15 minute warning before your “favorite” activity was to start. It was nice to be able to see what was for dinner so we could quickly decide if we wanted to eat elsewhere. It was also handy that the times and places where food was available so you didn’t have to wander around the ship.
Totally, dude!
AuthorVMarie on 7/16/2018
This saved time and paper. I am used to carrying the schedule around. With the app, it was click of a button. Also booked excursions, checked balance, and more!
App is good if folks would use it
Mabelle45 on 7/16/2018
The app really comes in handy when needing to locate people. You can check your account, find out what’s happening on the ship and feel like an organized person while on vacation. I love it!
Needs some improvement
Kellie's ipad on 7/16/2018
We traveled with a large group and could never get the chat option in the app to work. Internet onboard was very intermittent and would not work in the staterooms so not sure if that’s contributed.
Good App - Poor Service
Nighthawk521 on 7/16/2018
The app is a very good idea and when working was very convenient. The wireless connection on the Magic is the worst excuse for WiFi service I’ve ever seen. There was simply way to many people and not enough capacity. Do not waste your money on any of the Internet packages because they all are worthless! I chose the premium service and it was horrible. My son had the social media option and it was just as terrible. I did go to guest services and complained and they were aware of the problem because everyone else was complaining as well. They did credit the cost back to me. Do not waste your money!
Pmzqybdfrvuj on 7/16/2018
Download this app.. you don’t need to purchase the internet. I almost didn’t download it because I didn’t want to buy the internet. It works with the ships free WiFi (which is only good for this app). We were able to plan all of our cruise activities from this app. Even told you why the attire for dinner was each day (casual, elegant). Highly recommend!
Carnival is even better!!
CnicoleP on 7/16/2018
I just stepped off my Carnival Cruise aboard the Carnival Paradise (literally 10:00am this morning) my husband and I use the Carnival Hub app all week long! I didn’t have to clutter up my purse with paper. I didn’t have to go ask somebody what was happening, what’s open for food, how my account looks, where my pictures are. This app made it so easy to get around the ship and helped us purchase our picture with ease! I am so excited for this new app and it was a life saver!!!! I love carnival!!!
Needs work
Lorin23 on 7/16/2018
Great idea but needs work on the reception. It would constantly drop you off the chat if not open causing you to miss messages. I had to restart numerous times to get updates from friends. Also need ability to share pictures and pin drop locations.
Geno$ on 7/16/2018
I used this app to keep up with all activities. It was well worth the price!! Would like to go to the next level but to expensive. Hoping price will come down and give platinum and diamond cruisers a better price.
Worked great for planning events
toyzrus 270 on 7/15/2018
Also keeping tabs on spending. Made my cruise a lot easier.
7 days on board the Dream
birder525 on 7/15/2018
The app does what it says. I really appreciated the list of activities and being able to list favorites. The maps of decks were helpful. One improvement may be to add a turn by turn directions to get places on board.
App was good, chat should be free
Big.Bill.Gardner on 7/15/2018
The app worked great. We had the schedule each day, weather and book excursions straight from the app. Also good to check your account balance as they do make mistakes. We had children and used it to chat with them in the boat to let them know where we were. But had to pay $5 for each person that used chat. Ridiculous! Also ship maps should be able to be enlarged. I had to screenshot them in app and blow it up in my photos.
Glad the app was available
JayGjr on 7/15/2018
The app was helpful.
QueChilds on 7/15/2018
Love The Way The Family Can Keep In Touch Via The Chat Function Within The APP!! No More 2way Radio’s That Work HALF The Time Depending On The SIZE Of The Ship.
Pretty well structured, the $5 in-app chat is glitchy.
Logan Midgette on 7/15/2018
The chat is a little glitchy. It doesn’t connect to the WiFi sometimes. That may be an issue with the on board WiFi. Very useful for keeping up with your group, you can make group chats and everything. (By the way, the social plan barely loads social media, it’s almost not worth it). They keep the app up to date as well, the schedules are right and it makes it really easy to know what’s going on so that you can plan your days on the boat.
Useful but needs a little improvement
MRItech1 on 7/15/2018
Great app to keep up with what is happening around you. Chat feature should make a sound to let you know there is a message along with the vibration. If you are interested in seeing something, it dings to remind you. The app could help with disembarkment also by listing what floor or baggage number is being let off for areas you can’t hear the announcements at. Money conversion at ports would be very useful. I was told 6 different thinks in Mexico.
Awesome for Info!
CathieZ5757 on 7/15/2018
This app was fantastic to use to find out the info we needed for events, dinner, and where to grab a quick bite to eat. The ship map was particularly helpful. The texting part - was HORRIBLE. It’s a fantastic idea - when it works.
Ltdan@3 on 7/15/2018
It would be nice if the app showed you where you were on the ship. I would also like to have the map that shows the ships position included on the app.
Very Helpful.
KCJonesy Face on 7/15/2018
Came in handy the whole trip. Could use a few easier ways to navigate. Had to do a lot of backing out. And several relaunches to regain WiFi.
Add map to app
ohmi95 on 7/15/2018
Would have lived the access to track trip in app. Map only available on TV in room
App was extremely helpful
Texas Aggie J on 7/15/2018
Knowing the schedule every day and being able to select activities and get reminders was awesome. Enjoyed knowing the menu in the dining room each day and seeing your bill in real time was also great. The map for getting around the first couple days was very helpful.
Good move....
wspiderhands on 7/15/2018
I found that the app was very handy and needy and informative...took awhile to figure out the map but otherwise it was a great thing to have...... it was one of the main reasons I got two metals( sports trivia and Yahtzee)!
Carnival Hub Chat Feature
Tooch@OP on 7/15/2018
Thought the app was great. My only suggestion is that there be an sound alert when a chat comes in - perhaps a ship horn
Helpful app
BubbaGB on 7/15/2018
My family used this app on a Carnival Cruise. It was very helpful in terms of keeping us up to date about current and upcoming ship events. We liked how you could ‘favorite’ specific events which made them easier to find later. Being able to quickly access the details about an event, like time and location was very handy. We also liked how you could watch your running balance of onboard charges. The $5 per person texting chat plan for our onboard family members was extremely helpful since we had no cell service while out of port. This feature allowed us to arrange meeting/dinner times very easily. Other reviewers have said they could access photos from Pixels thru this app, however we were not able to do such. It would have been extremely helpful to view photos taken of us from the ship’s photographer on this app instead of hunting thru the ‘wall of photos’ at the Pixel lounge, which we found to be very inefficient. We probably would have been more apt to stop and have photos taken of us at different locations and therefore likely to purchase more. We were unable to find several photos that we knew were taken of us different times. Lastly, we would enjoy seeing the ships location shared on the app. On the cabin TV a channel is dedicated to showing the ship’s current destination via a map, along with ocean depth, wind speed, etc. This information would’ve been handy to access while on deck enjoying the ocean views or at lunch for conversation. Overall, the app was great. I would definitely recommend it, and would definitely use it again myself on another cruise.
Almost there
BuffaloPete21 on 7/15/2018
Really great overall. Chat feature was perfect for our family group of eight. Seemed to disconnect a lot so still needs a little work. Loved being able to see menus, schedules, excursions (available and what we booked), and open hours.
Great idea but very glitchy
Maynard698 on 7/15/2018
The schedules and menus were great as well as being able to keep track of account balance. The chat part is a great idea, you do pay 5.00 extra per person, but doesn’t always work well . Sometimes messages would arrive hours later.
Not 100% reliable
TCWjul18 on 7/15/2018
We used the chat to keep up with our 14 year old on the ship. It would loose connection a lot and messages wouldn’t go through. Or it would look like it did on your end but they would never get it. That caused panic a few times.
Love the app
B'sgammy on 7/15/2018
I loved having all the activities at my finger tip! Would have loved if the texting part worked better But not bad enough to lessen my rating! I loved how it event altered me via my Apple Watch(and phone) 15 mins before a saved event. I didn’t miss anything!
A must have whether cruising solo or yolo
FriMomof2 on 7/15/2018
Great features to keep you informed of what’s going on with in terms of entertainment, ship map, sail and sign account activity and chatting with fellow family or cruisers. Keeps you from having to carry briefing papers, schedules, etc. All info regarding ports of call is easily available The only think I would love to see it include is the daily scheduling for the kids’ camps.
Must Have during cruise.
BIGG REGGG on 7/15/2018
If you're attending a cruise with a large group, this app is a MUST HAVE!! We were able to message each other all day, everyday, for only $5 for the entire duration. Also was able to see the details for every single restaurant and every single daily activity. This app made our cruise experience 2X better.
Awesome App
Classy67 on 7/15/2018
The Carnival HUB App was extremely helpful and informative. It ensured that we knew the time and location of various events that were occurring, available restaurants and menu options, updated account balances as well being able to pay for excursions and other items directly on the app. We were very impressed.
Great app!
67 flemingks on 7/15/2018
Lots of good information at your fingertips. Would love to be able to know where the ship is all the time without having to look on the TV, but not sure that’s possible. Loved the chat feature. Worked find on the Pride.
Amber Mclin on 7/15/2018
The app is very user friendly. Lots of good information. Our group was able to keep in touch and we could always find out what was going on and even what was on the menu in the dining room. Only issues were 1. I didn’t get notifications when a message from my group came in, and 2. WiFi didn’t stay connected and sometimes I had to restart my phone to get it connected.
It worked but needs fixing
agraparj on 7/15/2018
We bought the chat plan so we could stay in touch during the cruise. iPhone users had no issue but android users could not receive or send texts. Also, I wish there was info about kids activities, camp hours, etc. But it was much better than looking for activities on the paper every time we were looking for something to do.
Great app!
Ray135700 on 7/15/2018
Easy to use
Very useful
rrrdddd2 on 7/14/2018
If wondering what events are happening this app will give you a hour by hour schedule. Also you can have the app remind you that it’s time for a event you picked. Also you can track spending on ship. Very handy. Last person to person communication like messenger. Recommend dL app easy to use and great tool to make ship life organized
Esmie N on 7/14/2018
Worked well for me, kept me up to date on all events and everything. Loved my ship Carnival Vista
A good start
Sak8297 on 7/14/2018
The app is a good start for Carnival, I hope to see many more features in the future, but sure it will evolve over time. I used the app for the schedule only. Was nice to have that with me.
Great App!
CReyyyy on 7/14/2018
It’s amazing! You literally have the “Fun Times” right at your fingertips, tells everything that’s going on during your cruise and allows you to make dinner reservations & purchase your shore excursion tickets which they than deliver to your room! And lets you stay on top of all your spending because the account summary is right there! It’s a must download if you’re going on a Carnival Cruise!
Very nice app
Qarmon on 7/14/2018
Just did a 7 day cruise on the Freedom and outside of a few months moments where I or my family did t get the text, it worked well. The information that kept us updated on the current happenings on the ship was excellent
App helpful!!
App Helpful on 7/14/2018
Great cruise! With Carnival Hub very useful throughout assisting with what’s happening!!🛳
Excursion info
Volleygurl1868 on 7/14/2018
We were very pleased with the the description and ease of booking our excursion with our app and where to meet our party. We were first time cruisers and it made it so easy with no worries.
Very useful on the ship!!!
hdidirvrbmd on 7/14/2018
Honestly was the best thing to use to know whats going on and where on the ship
Carnival Hub
Teacher T-Mac on 7/14/2018
I was able to keep in contact with my daughter while on the cruise. This was very convenient. Thank you
Overall good but needs a few updates
roxannekmoreno on 7/14/2018
The app worked well with keeping up with schedule. The chat was a hit or miss with my family as they did not get some messages even when still running on it.
