Disney Cruise? There's an App for That
The Disney Fantasy Navigator.
Currently described as "Disney Fantasy - Navigator is available for use while aboard the Disney Fantasy only during the September 7 and September 14 sailings." I am hopeful that this will become another permanent addition to cruising.
After playing with it, the free app currently has limited use shore side, but promises to be chock full of useful information when hooked into the ship's intranet through the "DCL-Guest" Wi-Fi network.
A similar app launched for the Android as well.
Friendly mouse-keeping reminder!Please remember to put your iPhone into airplane mode then turn on Wi-Fi. Forgetting to turn your smart phone on airplane mode can ad will result in hefty cellular data charges via the "cellular at sea" tower. Double check. Triple check. I'm not even kidding. As it says here on the Disney Cruise Line website, "Usage rates and international roaming rates vary as you travel. Be sure to contact your cell phone provider to learn these rates before your cruise. Disney Cruise Line recommends that Guests seeking to avoid the unwanted costs associated with data downloads keep their wireless devices turned off during their cruise."
Clear on that? Okay.
For those of you who have not yet experienced a cruise, before boarding and then each evening on returning to your stateroom, you receive a newsletter called your personal navigator.
