Boosts Your Guest Experience by Adding Secure Instant Messaging Onboard

Communicate Clearly with Instant Ship Updates

Every guest wants to know what is happening with the ship. You can schedule daily updates for everyone, create instant broadcasts to communicate changes, and keep everyone informed with ship-wide channels.

Create Channels for Guest Experiences

Going away on an excursion? There’s a channel for that. Planning to join the evening black tie dinner? There’s a channel for that, too. Create and communicate via channels to inform and inspire your guests about their interests and activities.

Make New Friends on the Voyage

Guests can have full control over who they connect with, so they can share their details via email, phone number, or a QR code designed for your cruise. Every guest keeps full control of their privacy and availability.

Share Stories Along the Way

Create and moderate #public channels to help your guests share their stories. They can add pictures and videos to share their funny, inspiring, or relaxing moments. Moderators can easily track messages and keep the tone of the chats on point.

Get Parental Control Settings for the Security of Your Dearest

Thanks to the adjustable user permissions and privileges, parents are granted the admin rights to manage settings for kids and family members.

Messagenius Offers The Best Instant Messaging Solution

Keep Everyone on Blast

Sometimes you just need to get the word out quickly. Use the broadcast feature to get new orders, updates, or feedback to everyone in the crew instantly. This feature is available to admins, captains, or other designated users.

Create Channels for Guest Services

You can set up a different #channel for each department to maximize your service efficiency. The concierge staff can have their own chat to monitor guest comfort while the catering team uses their chat to plan the next meal.

Respond Quickly to Incidents

You can form an incident room to create a response team instantly. Create the room, add the users, and send the first message. It’s that simple, that fast, and secure communication could be critical when something goes wrong.

Launch Your Next Cruise with Better Communication

Contact the team at Messagenius to discuss how to get started. Our experts can work with you to design a complete, secure messaging service for your crew and passengers. When we’re done, your cruise line’s livery will be integrated into the app to reinforce your brand at every opportunity.
