    Costa Cruises launches free onboard voice and text app


    Costa Cruises has launched “MyCosta Mobile,” a new application for smartphones and tablets that enables Costa guests to call and phone each other while cruising onboard its 14 ships with unlimited talk and text at no cost.

    The user-friendly MyCosta Mobile is free to download and register. Before their cruise, guests simply download the application from the Apple, Android or Google Play store and install it on their smartphone or tablet. Once onboard, guests connect to the ship’s Wi-Fi network, register and launch the app.

    By accessing the application via the ship’s Wi-Fi system, guests can socialize with other guests on their ship by phone or text through the closed network at no charge. The app also can be used to contact a stateroom or one of the ship’s restaurants, spa desk, shore excursion office and more.

    If a guest uses the mobile device to access the Web or contact someone not on the ship, then the customary roaming and shipboard Internet-access charges apply.

    MyCosta Mobile is available for the iOS 5.0 operating system and newer versions of iPhones and iPads, as well as for smartphones and tablets that run on Android 2.3 and later mobile-operating systems.

    The application comes in six languages: Italian, English, French, German, Spanish and Portuguese.

    I guess this was inevitable and I’m sure we’ll see it on most cruise lines before long (although I won’t be surprised to see charges for the app and/or service). I wish they could at least limit it to text-only though. Some of the appeal of cruising will be lost forever when folks start yammering on their phones in the dining rooms, the show rooms, the spas… :unsure:

    While it could be useful in finding where your spouse or children have gone off to on the ship, or keeping in touch with friends that you have sailed with, I agree with Michael and Amy...I'd hate to have people shouting into their phones all over the ship. Part of cruising is to "get away from it all."
