First EVER Ship Mate Cruise!

Ship Mate 1st Ever Member Cruise!

ship mate and cruiseline

We hear some great stories from users connecting with others through the app. Here’s an example:

“I was on navigator and decided to collect model ships after I got off.  So on the chat app I asked if anyone going on the ship can pick one up for me.   A guy did with his wife. Mailed it to me without asking for money.  I paid him and we r now friends on Facebook. He has a great family. Was wonderful.”   –  Jill B

And this one:

“Just wanted to let you know that I reconnected with a friend I hadn’t seen in 20 years because of shipmate. I saw a name I recognized from grade school on the roll call. I reached out through the app and it was my friend who I hadn’t spoken with for decades. We reconnected on the ship and have been in touch ever since.”  – Mary M

We’ve heard many more and imagine that there are hundreds of other great stories that we’re not aware of.

The point is that we have an amazing community of people who love to cruise. And our little app is helping to build real relationships. From play dates, to golf buddies, to spouses (giving Ship “Mate” a whole new meaning).

For that reason, we’re having our FIRST EVER….

Ship Mate Cruise!

With our friends at, we’re gathering together our communities and sailing as a group. There won’t be any weird “trust-falls” or uncomfortable ice breakers or anything like that. Rather, it’ll be a normal cruise with some added perks and optional get-togethers to make new friends.

Here are some details.

Cruise Ship

Allure of the Seas:  named the “Best Cruise Ship” by Travel Weekly! This amazing vessel includes seven distinct “neighborhoods” such as Central Park and the Sports Zone. Some of the must-see attractions include surfing, ziplining, 3D movies, AquaTheatre, and DreamWorks. You’ll find award winning cuisine as well as Broadway-caliber entertainment.
