Carnival Cruise Line is now offering a social media Internet package that offers access to a variety of the most popular Web sites for only $5 a day and is now available on more than half of the cruise line’s ships with fleet wide implementation expected by the first quarter of 2016.
The cruise industry’s first social media package offers unlimited access to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, LinkedIn, Pinterest, as well as other popular sites for just $5 a day or a discounted price for purchasing access for the entire length of the cruise.
Guests can also purchase a internet “value” plan which gives them unlimited access to the Web or they can opt for the “premium” package which provides a faster internet connection and allows access to video calling services such as Skye.
Carnivals new HUB mobile app which is available on the Carnival Breeze provides guests at-a-glance views of the ship’s many facilities and features, events and happenings taking place on board, all free of charge. The App is available for download at the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. The App also has a “chat” feature that allows guests to exchange messages with their travel companions using their mobile devices for a flat fee of $5 for the entire cruise. The app also includes a day-by-day schedule of hundreds of on board events, information on food and beverage venues, deck plans, itinerary details, your Sail & Sign account details and much more. Additional features are in the works and will soon be added.
