Carnival Hub App Suggestions – Vacation Impossible Podcast

Carnival Hub App Suggestions – Vacation Impossible Podcast


I’m constantly thinking of ways that they could do additional things to the hub app like what if you
could order your drinks wouldn’t that be great you can’t currently but that would
be pretty cool yea what if you could order room service straight from the app that
would be great wouldn’t it maybe there’s logistical problems maybe
it’s something the’ll implement in the future but I see that as an opportunity
for them to make things more efficient and and it could probably drive profit
items yeah or tipping servers even yea tip servers that you really like yea or performers for example you know we’ve talked extensively in the
past about a piano bar entertainers we really enjoy and we always say bring
some cash bring some singles or smaller bills so you can put it in the jar to
tip them but it’s not always easy to do there was a performer in the atrium
lobby yesterday who was you know performing an Oasis song if I wanted to
give him a tip he’s behind the bar I can’t I can’t get there he might have
had a tip jar somewhere I didn’t see it but it’s not a thing as easily done but
if you could do it in the app to the sign and sail card so that way you could
do it regardless of how much cash you have on you or how accessible the person
you wanted tip is I think that would be very beneficial for both guests and
staff yes another thing that I’ve been thinking about that would be nice on
there would be some kind of some sort of public chat with with you know someone
like Frankie the the the cruise director or or the captain you kind of just
you know do like once in a while exchange kind of yeah ask some questions
and or you know things like that I think that would be really neat it’s an
interesting idea or they could do like a message board version where yeah yeah a forum I
mean it could require some moderation so there might be some people who would
have to police it so that it’s not like the same kid asking the captain 10 times
can I Drive the boat you know there might be some there might be some
gatekeeping that might need to occur around that that’s that’s a really good
idea or you could submit questions for the Q&A and may they pre-vet them yeah
there’s a lot of different opportunities that could have there for example when
there’s a ship board announcement I have to wonder about the hard-of-hearing
individuals who aren’t going to hear that there’s no flashing that tells you oh well if you look carefully some
cabins have buttons on the outside and so those are cabins for hard-of-hearing
people because it has a light indicator because knocking will do no good I did notice that
and there’s one yeah just down the hallway here so I don’t know what they
might have but what if they’re not in their room or what if it’s just hard of
hearing not fully deaf or something or what if you sleep through an
announcement and some of these announcements can be very important
there was a medical emergency on the basketball court the other day and so
you know they would potentially advise people not to go there yeah and this is
information that would be helpful that for people to have but if you’re taking
a poop and you missed the announcement you’re not you’re gonna be absent that information so if there was an announced option or bulletin option
somewhere in the app where you can what was the last thing because technology
has gotten to the point where voice recognition does amazing things people
who have all sorts of different challenges you know who aren’t able to
use a keyboard or whatever they can dictate a lot and that technology and
software has gotten very good Sam for years has had something on his phone
where it will displays as a text message the content of any voicemail he receives
and it has fairly good accuracy it’s not a hundred percent but it’s good and so
he doesn’t have to waste his roaming time to call in he’ll just get a free
text message it’ll be like oh hey you know hey hey Sam what are you doing what
wanna do dinner later and it’ll appear as a text message even though it was
spoken so they if they could plug something like that into the PA system
you know if there’s guests that are missing how many times have we heard Oh
so-and-so so-and-so please contact guest services you know seven seven seven
seven because they don’t know if they’re on the ship or not because maybe they
got past without scanning their card in delaying the ship yeah exactly but what you hear is *mumbles* 7777 *mumbles* 7777. Charlie Brown’s teacher. Exactly
and so you can have more clarity so personally I like the app quite a bit
even though it has it’s frustrating aspects and I’m very excited to see what
they can do in the future Carnival if you want suggestions call me
I’ve got a laundry list of ideas
