As a performing artist for the cruise ship industry, one of the worst things you can do is miss the boat. The cruise line plans and provides travel in order to make sure that you have the best chance of arriving on time and embarking the ship on schedule. You have a responsibility to not miss the boat.
Here are some apps and websites to help you keep your travel information organized and up-to-date.
CruiseMapper is a great resource for locating your port and your ship's location in real time. The website is excellent and there are great apps for both Android, Apple iOS and Windows Phone. Ship's location, itinerary, and other information are available.
CruiseCal is the best resource for looking up your ship's itinerary and sailing times. There isn't a phone app, so look up your information at home before you travel. The mobile version of the website will work on some phones.
If the website will not work without a username and password, let us know and we will provide you with one.
FlightAware is a great tool to check your flight's status and see alternatives.
Another great app for tracking your flights is FlightStats. Know the status of your flight and plan for delays or alternatives.
TripCase is a great way to keep all of your travel information organized on your phone. Set up a FREE account. Download the app. Forward your emails with travel itineraries to the special email address, and all of your travel will be organzied for you to see in the app. You will even get messages about delays and weather.
Slack is the best way to communicate with Rick. It's a great messaging app that takes very little space on your phone and works fast. I respond to Slack quicker than any other app 24/7.
If you are not able to use Slack, the next best messenging app is Facebook Messenger. I also have WhatsApp. I am no longer using Viber, WeChat, or Line.
For urgent communications 24/7, ring me on WhatsApp or send a Slack message.
Please add Slack to your phone and send me an email to request an invitation to my Slack team.
