ShipMate Cruise App

I recently changed from a Blackberry to a Samsung Android phone and obviously the first app I searched for was one relating to cruise ships. Well, imagine my delight when I found several.

I have to say one of my favourite ones is the ShipMate app. I say favourite one, there are actually quite a few, more or less one for each cruise line in fact.

They are packed with quirky features like full deck plans, this being a great and quick way of finding out where a particular cabin or facility onboard is. You can also find information for upcoming cruises including the destinations and how long each voyage is.

I am told that the same app for the iPhone, iPad etc is actually better than the ones on android but I must admit I am pretty happy with the ones I have.

As if the basic info was not enough you can also check each ships webcam, its current location in the world, plan your shore excursions and share the info on facebook with your friends. If you have not already downloaded one of these apps then go and do it now, you will soon have a phone full of them. You can also amuse your friends with the โ€œhornโ€ feature, great for geeks like me and once the fascination wares off for you, you can always use it to annoy people ๐Ÿ˜‰

One other great feature of this app is that it does NOT require internet access. You can simply put it onto airplane mode and avoid sky high charges for the data usage. It really is a great little tool to have and itโ€™s conveniently stored within your phone.

To find the apps simply go into your app store and search for Ship Mate

I also have a ShipMate app FREE download giveaway on facebook so come and have a look!

I'm REALLY missing this view! @fred.olsencruiselines Balmoral was my home for almost 7 weeks. I'm sad to have left her, my good friend and all the lovely people we met. #cruise #travel #seastheday #ship #wanderlust This is one of my favourite #photographs from #MardiGras in #NewOrleans. It's simple, but bursting with colour! Throw us some beads! ๐Ÿ˜‚ #NOLA #nawlins #louisiana #travel #america
