Free Cruise Apps – Hurry and Download
Beginning on Thursday, November 1st, Ship Mate Cruise App will be FREE for a very limited period. This is the first time we’ve done this and we’re expecting to give away $20,000 in downloads to the cruise community during this 48-hour window!
Why are we doing this, you ask? Mainly, to celebrate the recent launch of our consolidated Ship Mate version, including all cruise lines, ships and a bunch of great new features. But, if you need more excuses, here are a few extra:
- Halloween – we’re dressing up as the Free Money Guy
- Start of Cruise Season – smell that suntan oil
- Mini-Stimulus Package
- Bribe our users for 5 Star Ratings 🙂
During this period, download the app for free using this link.
For our existing iPhone app users:
Existing Carnival Cruise App Users
We recently converted our Carnival Cruise App version into “All Cruise Lines,” so you don’t need to do anything to take advantage of this. Now, you may be thinking, “pshh, I paid for this app and now you’re giving it away for free… I could have used that $2 for new shoelaces or eight gumballs.” True, but there’s benefit to this giveaway for you, too. You can share it with your friends and family as a Halloween gift. Call it a “treat” if you will… way better than a pack of Smarties. ALSO, with every additional user, the app becomes more valuable to you. We hope that you think it’s worth $2 right now, BUT with each new Roll Call & Chat member, User Review, Rating, Cruise Picture submission, etc, Ship Mate becomes better and better.

Existing Non Carnival App Users
To those with the Royal Caribbean app, Norwegian, Princess Cruises, Celebrity, and all other versions of Ship Mate – this is your chance to download the consolidated version for free, as a thank you for your loyalty. The new version will have your same cruise line as well as EVERY cruise ship for each major line. Make sure to download during this free period – you can do so from here.
You’ll be able to log in with your existing username and password and see your saved cruises pop up in the “My cruises” section. NOTE – while your saved cruises will show up, any additional customizations (like itinerary items, contacts, budget pieces) will need to be manually transferred. Sorry, but we haven’t moved these to “the cloud” yet… baby steps. The old versions of the app will still work, but they won’t receive the great new improvements that we’re currently working on.
