Carnival Cruise Line has added a number of new features to its Hub App. The app’s popular “Pizza Anywhere” onboard function is now available on 11 ships, with a fleetwide rollout expected to be completed later this year, and the cruise line has also added new pre-cruise purchase capabilities.
New Pre-Cruise Functionality
With the Hub App’s new pre-cruise capabilities, guests can now manage their booking, complete their online check-in, and purchase a wide variety of items and experiences before departure, including shore excursions, spa treatments, specialty dining reservations, Wi-Fi packages and Fun Shop orders for stateroom delivery.
Expanded ‘Pizza Anywhere’ Feature
First available on Carnival Horizon and Carnival Vista, the Hub App’s popular “Pizza Anywhere” feature has been added to nine other ships, including Carnival Victory, Carnival Magic, Carnival Breeze, Carnival Conquest, Carnival Dream, Carnival Sensation, Carnival Glory, Carnival Ecstasy, and Carnival Liberty.
To place an order, guests simply click on the ship’s map to mark their location, take a selfie to identify themselves and select their desired pizza and toppings. Five pizzas are available: margherita, funghi, prosciutto, pepperoni and quattro formaggi.
Pizzas are cooked to order and delivered hot to the guest’s location onboard. Cost is $5 per pizza and automatically charged to guests’ Sail & Sign shipboard accounts. Carnival said that it is now working towards a pilot to expand “Pizza Anywhere” deliveries with the addition of beverages.
Launched in 2015, Carnival’s Hub App is designed to serve as a one-stop-shop for making the Carnival vacation experience seamless and convenient, allowing guests to track daily happenings onboard, view food, beverage and entertainment offerings, chat with family and friends, follow the ship’s route in real time, and access their Sail & Sign account.
