Is the texting feature available on the Symphony?

Recommended Posts

So is the only way to text family with a voom package?  I was on Harmony two years ago and they offered a cheap texting plan, I think around $8-10 a person for week that just allowed texting, is that still offered?  Going on Symphony this June and was really hoping the family could just use the app while on board to keep in touch.

The newer 'Royal' app that Symphony uses does not currently have this feature.  It is supposed to be come at some point in the future but there is no published scheduled for when it will come to Symphony.

I can concur with the others.  I just got off Symphony this past Saturday and without the internet package, you cannot text others through the app.  In my post-cruise survey I encouraged RC to have this feature.  It would be tremendously helpful.

Slightly changing topics...but any clue as to when it will be available on Anthem?  I find it hard to believe their newer ships don't all have this ability.

Different app for Anthem.  It uses the RoyalIQ app, at least for now.
