Norwegian Cruise Line said the newest version of its mobile app
is now available on the Norwegian Sky.
Called Cruise Norwegian, the app succeeds the current
iConcierge app. The new app enables passengers to make reservations for shows,
shore excursions and alternative restaurants, and purchase beverage or
specialty dining packages. The app is also useful for finding one's way around
Norwegian Cruise Line ships.
On embarkation day, the app will save time by allowing for
paperless boarding, Norwegian said.
Onboard, passengers connect to the ship's WiFi and can call
or send text messages to others in their party for a one-time fee of $9.95.
Calls can be made off the ship through the app for 79 cents a minute.
Groups can organize meet ups and share their favorite photos
with everyone in their party with group messaging through the app. Passengers
can also review their onboard account.
The new app will be available on the Norwegian Bliss when it
launches next summer, and will be available fleetwide by the end of next year.
