As well as destination guides, deals and discounts, and information about on-board facilities, the free-to-download app offering sight-seeing tips and a cruise video section.
The app also includes a customer profile section to store loyalty details, a keyword search functionality, a ‘Cruise Watch’ fare monitor and a consultant chat function.
