Now Use Ship Mate Cruise App Offline!

The average cost for internet access on a cruise ship is $0.75 per minute. AND, that’s typically for dial-up speed. Watching an adorable cat video while at sea will cost you your next car payment.

We’re assuming most of our users will go into “Airplane Mode” as soon as the Muster Drill ends (Note: maritime international law prohibits watching cat videos during the Muster Drill). Now, you can continue to use Ship Mate while off the grid. Some things you can do with this update:

  • Sit poolside and read up on your next port.
  • While on a bar-stool, use your deck maps to find the nearest bathroom
  • Record your daily activities in your daily schedule (iOS only right now)

cruise app no internet needed

To Use:  as long as you’ve saved your upcoming cruise, it’ll be stored for offline use.  You may see a “Saving for offline use” screen pop up.  This will only happen once and then you’re forever ready to disconnect.

Please let us know what other offline functionality you’d like to see in the comments below!  And, if you like what we’ve done, please take a minute to rate us in Apple App Store or in Google Play.  We’re always really grateful to see users taking the time to review the app in those!

  1. One of the questions I want answered when traveling is “Where exactly am I?” You have this cute “ship location” feature. 12 days until departure and I know where the ship is right now. I put my phone on airplane mode like it will be when I’m on the ship and that goes away. Big disappointment. GPS doesn’t require network access does it?

  2. Great app , but would be huge if we can text between passengers, that’s the biggest concern I’m ready to pay for that feature , but great job thanks
