Good and Bad
The good is that this app gives a great overview of whats on board the ship your on. I used to turn on the tv to see whats going on and to check my acct and such, but now I can find it all in the palm of my hands. The app works through the ships wifi so you can see all this info wherever you are.
The downside of the app is the messaging and talk which is a paid feature. My family all paid for thinking itd be a great way to stay in touch while at different areas of the ship. However it definitely needs improvment since its a paid service. I had problems hearing the ringer since many times theres enough ambient noise to drown the ringer out. The ringer isnt the normal ringer on my phone which is defintely loud and also vibrates. Also several times when my phone rang, I wasnt able to pick up from my home screen and could only hang up and dial back. NCL should definitely study and immitate how other chat apps such as LINE, wechat, or whatsapp implement their messaging and calling. I felt that NCLs first attempt at this felt like the app is still in the beta stage and needs more debugging and refining. Hopefully some improvements will be made by the next time Im on board.
Not perfect, but very useful
Overall, this app worked well and was a tremendous help to my group...being able to search through the restaurants was the biggest advantage to this app (and being able to book reservations directly from it was supper convenient). Again, overall, extremely useful. One thing I used frequently while on my cruise was the “what’s happening” feature...this shows all of the things happening in the next 24 hours (I was constantly looking at it to see what options were coming up). The one thing I didn’t like about this feature is that you can’t tap an item and get more information...that would have been EXTREMELY useful because some titles didn’t lend themselves well to what that event actually was. Another change I’d like to see (and some others have said the same thing) are menus for all restaurants...most have “sample menus” (which is better than nothing), but some don’t have anything so you don’t really know what they serve.
Way too buggy to be useful
Sometimes updated isn’t necessarily better. Last year this app worked on the Escape. This year on the Bliss it was useless. App crashes in the middle of use. Phone usually doesn’t work, calls go directly to voicemail, you rarely can have a 2 way conversation. Sometimes you need to restart app and clear cache to make a call. Sometimes loses connectivity in cabin (deck 11 midship so I don’t see why this should happen). This app is almost useless for phone calls. ***NCL has some nerve charging $10 for something that shouldn’t even be a beta release***. Also NCL, you should be able to add people by stateroom and name, or issue phone numbers in advance. Once in the ship you need someone’s phone number to add them, but you need to make contact with them to get it.
On a side note, I notice many 5 star reviews are for the cruise line, not the app. Please people you are skewing the rating for this app. I had a great time too, but leave those 5 star reviews on a travel site, not for this crappy app!
WOULD BE NICE IF NORWEGIAN WOULD READ THESE REVIEWS AND FIX THIS CRAPPY APP. For a company that’s so attentive to their passengers, I’m surprised they ignore these.
