P&O Cruises Australia has launched its first onboard app allowing guests to plan their activities, make bookings and share experiences in real time throughout their cruise.

Available free on personal devices when connected to P&O Cruises' Wi-Fi, the WhatsOn app provides a new way for travelers to stay in touch during their trip.

The app allows families and friends traveling together to send messages to one another, check in and ‘like' locations as well as recommend activities.

Guests can also book shore tours with a few clicks, check their onboard account, view special promotions available across the ship and keep up to date with the latest news from around the world.

With the app also providing the daily schedule of activities for the entire cruise, guests can book their preferred activities online and create a wish list for each day.

The app launched across most of the fleet last week, with Pacific Aria set to come online later this week.

The cruise line is also rolling out new cash kiosks which will allow guests to transfer money onto their cruise card without needing to line up at the front desk.
