GREAT TRAVEL APPS!
Google Translate – Yep, it instantly translates words from English to over 100 languages! You can even take a picture of a sign with your phone camera and it will translate it for you. And you can translate while you are offline by downloading a transition file!
Google Trips – We seriously love this app. It keeps all of your travel confirmations and itineraries in one place! From dinner reservations to hotel confirmations, it is all there! It will also add Google Maps. And if you are on the ship with limited wifi you can save all of the information onto your phone and access it offline!
Amazon Kindle App – You don’t need to own a Kindle to use this app on your smartphone! Download it, buy books online and you can read anywhere you go just with your phone! We sure are grateful for this app when we are stuck in an airport for hours! See Day
Lonely Planet City Guides – We love the guide books for really researching the counties we will visit before the cruise. But this digital guide is perfect for keeping on your phone for the trip itself. See, Eat, Sleep, Shop! It’s all there at your fingertips!
WiFI Finder – You are walking around a port and all you want is to find a wifi cafe or restaurant to chill and do as the locals! This app will do it for you!
Ship Mate – It’s amazing! If you haven’t already found it, get it now. You put in your sail date and ship and it starts it’s very own countdown! It has your itinerary specifically for your sailing. It has deck plans to your ship. And you can join the roll call and chat back and forth with other people about to sail with you!
Headout – This app is really cool if you are just heading off the ship, or arriving in a port and want to know what you should do next! It takes your current location and searches for events, music gigs, exhibition, adventure experiences, and even tourist tours!
XE Currency – We talked about it on Day 26. It is your daily currency exchange app. Very important if you are wanting to change money on a port. This will tell you what the exchange rate should be.
Packpoint Packing – Wow! We shared it with you on Day 25, Round One Packing. This seriously makes your packing a breeze because it helps you narrow down exactly what to bring! And it puts a packing list on your phone. It asks you your sex, where you are going, how many days, the activities you will engage in and more. Then it makes a packing list for you! If it can make your life easier, why not?!
Relax Melodies – Very cool app that has so many options from calming music to white noise sounds. You can have thunderstorms or ocean waves. WAIT! WHo needs that when you can just open your cabin balcony door for the real thing?
Now there are all kinds of Game Apps for you to download. So we will just stick with our favorites that are all about cruising!
Cruise Tycoon – Seriously! You get to imagine that you own your own Cruise Line! From setting itineraries to hiring Captains you get to challenge your business skills. There is a free version and a pay version. Come on. You are a tycoon. Go for it!
Cruise Ship Cooking Scramble – You are a chef and have to create meals for the passengers on your ship! It has 70 levels to satisfy that cruise ship hunger.
