Is the NCL app helpful?

Worth it to download for our cruise next week?

You use it for the text/phone package.  9.99 each. If they keep the schedule current, yes.  On the Joy, it was not kept up.

I use the app to: see what's going on, using the online daily program and to  keep track of my onboard spending account.

 

It's how I discovered that I was getting double shore excursion credit back when booking excursions.

Download the free app and then pay to use it? No thanks. 

It was BS and very difficult to navigate the “free” part

I liked using it on my last cruise.  It was helpful getting the activity information from.  I dont see any harm in downloading it.  If you don't use it then no biggie.

It's really the only cost effective way to stay in touch with members of your group on the ship, if you need to do that. You pay the fee per phone, then connect to the wifi ( this is free, you do not buy any internet minutes to use this). Once everyone is connected you can text between your "contacts" on the app, and also call their cabins from your phone. 

 

Other than that, as mentioned, it displays the status of your on-board account, and shows you reservations you have for specialty dining and shore excursions. And of course, it's a way for them to send you ads for things on the ship, such as gift shop sales.
