  1. Daniel Melkild-avatar

    The app itself is a great tool. The problem is the amount of old grouchy retirees that get on there to complain about the silliest things on their cruise. Those and the idiots that are the ones who probably aren't use to spending large sums on vacations and don't have realistic expectations. Still funny to read their BS reviews and complaints! Enjoy.

    I love ShipMate!! Been using it for several years now. Helps me keep record of my cruises, give the ability to chat with other cruisers as well as read their stories and see their pictures. AWESOME APP!!!

  3. Anne Lloyd-avatar

    Love this site for finding excursions that are smaller in number and are less expensive than the cruiselin es'. To me, this site is much more user-friendly than Cruise Critic.

  4. S B-avatar

    There is so much helpful information, great advice/suggestions from previous travelers & many beautiful pictures are shared!

  5. Gary Evans-avatar

    The advertising banner is far too large and intrusive. It pretty much takes over the Cruise listing screen. This is AFTER the update which "reduces the space taken and removes the boldness of the sponsorship on the cruise countdown screen and removed the sponsorship on the widget." I used to love this app, now I hate it and will not be using it as much if at all in the future. Its a shame. but seems to be time to look for something else I guess.....

  6. Chris Scott-avatar

    Great app. Good info about ports, locations and things to do!

  7. Traveling Grands-avatar

    Traveling Grands


    Great app to search itineraries and excursions. You call also message of traveller's if they are using the app as well

  8. Andy Schisler-avatar

    Meat easy to meet new people and see the sights and places before you take your cruise. Tips and tricks of cruising.

  9. Don Winzen-avatar

    Previously a four star app but now disappointing. With Tag Heuer, the ad blocks the countdown app. It wouldnt have been bad but it adds ghost images. I won't take the screenshot of the countdown and post it on social media anymore with that mess. 12/19 - Thank you. Much improved. Changed to 4 stars

  10. Teresa Saxon-avatar

    Helpful. I love to be able to check out cruises and peoples reviews on the ships.

  11. John Bibbs-avatar

    I hate ads. I hate them even more on my home screen. I have removed the widget from my home screen. It's useless to me now that it has an ad on it. That widget was 90% of the reason I even had this app installed. I'm evaluating whether or not to keep Ship Mate installed.

  12. Jo Beretta-avatar

    Great community app for cruisers! The only downside thus far is being able to rearrange your photos. I like to keep my photos in chronological order and in the app I've found older pics from past cruises, but can't move them to group them together.

  13. Tami Lipham Clemons-avatar

    Tami Lipham Clemons


    I absolutely ❤️❤️❤️ ShipMate! I spend more time on this app than I do Facebook! I love the roll call. I love exploring new ships and ports. I love having cruise prices posted! I love reading the reviews. I love seeing all the pictures of places I want to visit and ships I want to travel on. I love learning the ship's stats and comparing them with past ships I am familiar with. I love seeing where the ship's are. I hate the new tag on my countdown. It messed up my time lapse video. 365 -186 ugh!

  14. Jim Kippenhan-avatar

    The sponsor advertising is entirely too intrusive. Please rethink the placement of the logos from the sponsor. UPDATE: Thanks for being responsive to your users. Much less intrusive sponsor logo.

  15. Allans Flowers-avatar

    I really like this app and find it so useful for planning cruises. reviews are helpful. I have gotten great advice from the chat too. Highly recommend this is you're a cruiser.

  16. TC B-avatar

    This app is really friendly and helpful. The port tips, photos and reviews are really useful. I really like the app so far. I check it all the time and it gets me excited for my upcoming cruise.

  17. Aqueta Q Sands-avatar

    Great feedback when asked a question. Post pictures. Message people. Keeps your information.

  18. Chris Gunter-avatar

    It's a great app for the new cruiser (me) and for veterans too. Lots of great ship and ports reviews and pictures. Also the price alert is a really cool feature. 😊👍

  19. B B-avatar

    Excellent App for your Cruise. It helps you will ALL of your planning. It also helps you find the best deal!! I am so thankful for this app.

  20. Jesse Munday-avatar

    Love shipmate so far.. super easy to navigate.. love being able to see everyone's reviews and pictures of the different ships.. love that you can book your excursions on this site as well!!

  21. Katrina Born-avatar

    Not a fan of the new widget look. The Tag Heuer sponsorship logo looks like a sports team and there's no longer a ship, so it doesn't look like a cruise countdown...

  22. Stephanie Hutchinson-avatar

    Stephanie Hutchinson


    This app seems to really be helping to prepare for a first time cruise. I love how you get access to reviews from people who are sailing the same itinerary and ship as you are.

  23. Shane Wallace-avatar

    It totally works as described. It even helps to notify you if there's been a price drop on your Cruise.

  24. Vicki Watts-avatar

    Very handy , can get great information from other people on things to do as well as how different each ship is.

  25. Dawn Varney-avatar

    Used to be good, now completely RUINED by massive sponsorship ads that came with last update. Uninstalling. Don't bother downloading it. It's not even worth free anymore.

  26. Sershan Chettiar-avatar

    Sershan Chettiar


    Great app. Plenty of useful information. Great for 1st time cruisers who requires assistance and plenty of people who will assist you. Thanks guys

  27. senkel richard-avatar

    Good app. Gives you a overview of all cruise lines from real people and photos. Love it.

  28. Jennifer R-avatar

    Great app for every cruise! Easy to find reviews, excursions, ship layouts, etc.

  29. Lynn Hill-avatar

    I'm new on Ship Mate but so far I give it a high rating. I've connected with friends from my last cruise and looking forward to connecting with folks on my next. I hope my next cruise is in March 2020. Pretty soon. Thanks for the app.

    Generally enjoying but isn't live tracking. Our itinerary has changed but the tracking is following advertised route and advising it's being regularly updated

  31. Kevin Scifleet-avatar

    App keeps crashing. Wast of time. We are on Deck 14 Majestic Princess. App doesn't show anything higher than Deck 12.

  32. Joel Keefer-avatar

    Very cool app. Lots of cruisers stories and questions. Any cruise question can be answered here.

  33. Laurel Sornberger-avatar

    Laurel Sornberger


    I love the experience of knowing what to expect to see and what the ship looks like and all the excursions you can go on.

  34. Susan Malison-avatar

    Can spend all day dreaming of my next trip as well as enjoying pics and reviews of ships and ports I have not visited. Generally a majority of the posts are very positive

  35. Skullrydr-avatar

    Good way to find info on ships, cruises, food, excursions,etc

  36. David Burke-avatar

    Used the app to ask a few questions and I am very happy with replies. A very user friendly app

  37. Pearl Greaver-avatar

    Lots of really good information on this app but the information for our cruise next year is not correct in the app. We are booked on the Carnival Valor for a 15 day cruise February 26, 2021 from Barcelona to New Orleans. Can we get that info fixed?

  38. Jeffery Bohde-avatar

    Now we have to deal with ads in the app. Database of cruises and ships are never updated.

  39. Judy Smitherman-avatar

    Judy Smitherman


    Great info to be found. Lot's of photos, excursion tips, ship reviews etc.

  40. Shaun Spiegel-avatar

    Price alerts doesn't work, missed a chance for an upgrade by relying on this app.

  41. Maria Frasca-avatar

    This app is brilliant and I found a lot of useful advice on here from fellow cruisers

  42. Nic Mortimer-avatar

    Great App , had minor problem emailed and admin fixed within the hour.

  43. leanne ashton-avatar

    I would give 5 stars but i have been waiting for an update as I'm going on the carnival splendor in june and it does not show any for 2020.

  44. Donita Meyer-avatar

    Fun easy app with lots of deals.

  45. Bruce Martin-avatar

    Good program. At times a little hard to navigate but Ive used way worse programs

  46. Caz Gayst-avatar

    Especially love being able to remind myself where I've been, when it was and what I'll be doing. And hearing things from other 'real people.

  47. Koi 2729-avatar

    Love this app for my cruise countdown, looking at pictures and seeing excursions.

  48. Santos Claudio-avatar

    The best way to obtain inside information from other passenger's experience.

    Trying to add review of ship and not as easy to do as last time. Not all cruise lines included in app so my next one on Explorer Dream not showing up.

  50. Piyusha Bhatt-avatar

    What a great App! There is a cruise community helps you with anything cruise related

  51. Marion Chesnutt-avatar

    Marion Chesnutt


    Very informative site for ship advice and excusions as well plus just plain fun reading keep on up grading the site its the best. Thank you😎

  58. 101roreybreaker-avatar



    The best time I ever had staff where amazing booking another one soon as possible

  59. Kristi Jackson-avatar

    Great App. Everything in one place.

  60. K Sharif-avatar

    It's not the type of app I use day to day. But when I had a problem with the app, within the app I let the developer know. They respond quickly and soon I had everything back, small panic over. Why panic? Because as I found out it's invaluable. As my one stop cruise related. It's not dedicated to one cruise line, which is great as I don't have to figure out how to navigate to get information related to the up coming cruise and excursions which is from a different line from the last or next one.

  61. Wiz To The Nizzle-avatar

    Wiz To The Nizzle


    This app is amazing!! It's so informative even going as far as to send me alerts when my cruise price dropped. Thanks to their alert, I was able to call the cruiseline and get a cabin upgrade. I also love being able to chat with experienced cruisers that are so pleasant and quick to answer questions or give advice. This app has more info than my direct cruiseline app!!! I love it!!!

  62. R&M Travels-avatar

    The lag got corrected.. But when I comment on a photo, I only get points sometimes.... not every time, so the point lag is there still. I have 32 ship mates but says I have there is a glitch there. I should be around 1550 points instead I have 1417. I'm sure I would have way more than 1550 but I recently noticed the point lag the app has.... My review was 5 star until I noticed this recently..

  63. Monica Holmes-avatar

    I absolutely love this app! Only bad thing is you cant edit things after you already post. I've seen a few people accidentally put the wrong amount of stars on a ship or port and they have to delete and do everything again. Apart from that I LOVE this app and use it daily! It's very helpful.

  64. Deepcman-avatar

    App has become a repository for peoples pictures and the same old questions. I've given up contributing but keep the app to track all my cruises. That's all it's good for. UPDATE: Product Management Director responded with feedback to my suggestions. Now we'll see what happens given the limited size of their development team.

  65. Cameron Johnson-avatar

    Cameron Johnson


    Fun to connect with people who have been in the same cruise ship, or who will be sailing with you. Great information on destinations and what to do and not to do. Find it a little cumbersome to navigate some of the information. Fun app to have prior to boarding your cruise.

  66. The Hattersons-avatar

    Love this app and the cruise community!

  67. DRDND 1-avatar

    If you are a cruiser this is a must have app. Through Roll Call it gives you the chance to get to know people that are going on the same cruise. Also the app has many features which are real helpful like a packing list feature etc... I highly recommend

  68. David Williams-avatar

    Was very helpful to me and my wife when we booked our first cruise. Questions became answers, and we had nothing blindside us because we were prepared due to the knowledge base from others in the app. Highly recommend using on your first trip and beyond!

  69. Kevin Marin-avatar

    Awful experience after Tag Heuer sponsorship. Used to love this app but now there's ad's everywhere

  70. Donnie Bourisaw-avatar

    Donnie Bourisaw


    Same information posted over and over again and it looks like now they're deleting photos and reviews they don't like what's the point of participating if you're just going to delete stuff afterwards there are a lot of options out there there's no need to stay with an app like this until it becomes more relevant I plan on deleting it there was nothing profane about any of my reviews and the app is full of selfies if that's against the rules you definitely don't do a good job of enforcing it

  71. trvljet Donnie-avatar

    I have been using this app since Dec 2018 when I discovered it. I love it and all the comments and reviews from other shipmates which help me decide on my next cruise, destination, cruise line and, cruise ship.

  72. J F-avatar

    I love this app! It tracks all your cruises and a continous count down to the day you cruise is great! Good information from others on excursions to take at the different ports.

  73. Karen Hardy-avatar

    This app covers everything and more. Definitely a must have for anyone who has or is considering to cruise.

  74. Robert Shipley-avatar

    This app is wonderful. Every detail of past and future Cruises are so easy to access. This app is intuitive and well organized

    Very disappointed. The chat part is nice, but I would really like to keep track of day to day activities on my cruise. That isn't available, so I have to carry around a paper copy with me 😭

  76. Azariah Hill-avatar

    Great so far. Like to keep track of the ships I have been on. Like to read the post of other cruisers about their experiences on the different ships.

  77. Maureen Flintz-avatar

    Enjoy reading reviews of the ship and ports for an upcoming cruise. I've booked excursions through the app and I would book again through this app. Sometimes the app does crash.

  78. Stefani Tucker-avatar

    Love how you can stay updated on whats going on with peoples reviews from their recent trips and its give you all of your cruise trip info. Great App.!

  79. Leigh Verrall-avatar

    Probably just a bug, but no longer loads on my Galaxy Tab4 after the last patch. Pity because it has its uses.
