Messaging on Oasis


Recommended Posts

Going on Oasis in June.  Does the messaging on the app work to communicate with one another?   

Also with the WiFi that the ship gives to use the app (not VOOM) are you able to use your iMessage if you have an iPhone ?

Yes, there is a chat feature in the app. It costs $1.99 per person per day to use

Yes, but it’s a loophole. Meaning, it’s not something Royal advertises or offers as a feature, so it could disappear tomorrow.  Basically, you can’t assume it will be there (although it has been since cruises restarted)

The loophole referenced is unpredictable.  It might work for an hour or two riding on the coattails of something you did in the app, then it might now work for several hours.  Later that day you might get an iMessage sent to you 4 hours earlier or it may take days to get that iMessage, or the sender's phone may see an iMessage failure and send it as a text message that you'll get the next time you activate cellular.  

If you can live with unpredictable behavior then you can try it and see.
