"... the Cruise Fleet Management application ...."

Now we know why they lost the America's Cup that way. The skipper was desperately trying to use those applications to plan for the races...

Anyway cruise ships are now so large you need such kind of applications to manage everything and everyone on board. A couple of colleagues in a company I worked for usually had to take some short cruises when a new version was released, or to diagnose issues, poor lads. Inmarsat connections were too expensive, and the ship won't stay harboured for too long (but for scheduled maintenance).

Just they would really need a backup captain to take the helm automatically when the main one thinks showing off past an island is a good PR stunt...
