We coordinate a large group cruise everyother year. I've been looking for an efficient way to communicate with everyone in the group. Do i understand the Shipmate App correctly that you can add "friends" and send messages? If that's correct, can you do group messages, or only one to one?
Finally, we cruise NCL with this group. Will using the App on-board use up internet minutes or will it result in using cell phone data plans at sea ($$$$$). I know NCL has a messenger function (iConcierge) but you have to pay for it and as far as I know it won't do Group broadcasts.
Any help will be appreciated. If it can be used on the ship I'll tell everyone to install it!
