Ratings and Reviews
Great Content, Hard to Navigate
Free WiFi is available on the ship, and I found it a must in order to use the app (particularly on lower levels). If the content won’t load for you, check your service/WiFi connection!
The content is great! Loved the added information and photos.
My only complaint is that the app is really hard to navigate! It was a guessing game to figure out which item on the app corresponded to which stopping point I was in front of on the ship. I didn’t know exactly where I was on the ship after following and taking various stairs and hallways, so the map view was useless. I found myself trying to match up pictures on the app with what I was seeing on the ship, which I couldn’t always find a match to and was time consuming. Please number each stopping point so you can easily match them with the corresponding item number on the app.
Love the ship and have been visiting annually for several years. Downloaded the app and paid for the features this year, but it was essentially useless for me. Constantly giving waiting screens, trying to load features, not locating itself accurately on the ship despite enabling both the WiFi and Bluetooth connections. I don’t mind the fee if it benefits the ship’s restoration, but as far as being useful for the tour, it was a waste.
Doesn’t seem to work
None of this seemed to work. I gave it access to everything, and walked around the shop and all through the ship. Nothing ever came up. The list of tours was empty. The augmented reality had nothing in it. The maps never showed up. Really cool idea and hope they get it working.
