    Can I book a cruise for someone, who is not on cruise, and get on board booking benefits for them.

    Ahoy, Santa!
    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Booking your next cruise while at sea is one of my favorite Disney Cruise Line vacation tips! It always makes disembarkation a bit easier knowing you have another magical voyage to look forward to with your favorite Disney pals! At this time, you are not able to take advantage of the onboard booking benefits for someone who is not on the ship at the time of booking. To book a stateroom, one adult must be on the original reservation. For instance, you can book two staterooms for one future sail date, but you and your spouse or adult traveling companion must be listed on as the primary adult on each reservation. But, you can add someone not on the cruise at the time of booking as long as there is room in the stateroom, space on a lifeboat and in the youth spaces if it is a child. If the person is not on the cruise with you, their cruise cost will be the current prevailing rate at the time of their booking, so this is something to consider as well. You will need to call Disney Cruise Line at (800) 951-3532 to add a person to your original reservation once on land.
    Once aboard, you can stop by the Future Cruise Desk to speak to a crew member about your next sailing, Santa. I suggest visiting sooner than later as the line is typically longer towards the end of the cruise. Hours of operation will be listed in your daily cruise newsletter and on the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App (free for download for Apple or Android devices).
    Thank you for continuing to visit us with your cruise questions! We always love to help a fellow cruiser!
    Have a magical day!
