    Do cell phones work in the Bahamas? If not, how do you communicate with other members of your party?

    Hi there, Rhonda!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so glad you found us while planning your Bahamian adventure onboard the beautiful Disney Dream!  Not much can beat sailing to the Bahamas with a stop at Castaway Cay!

    You will want to check with your cell phone service provider to ensure that your phone will be able to receive and/or make calls when traveling internationally.  You may need to add on an international package depending on your service provider for your time in the Bahamas.

    Be sure that you – and all members of your traveling party – download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app prior to sailing.  Not only does this give you a full schedule of events and activities onboard, but it also has a chat feature that you can use while onboard to communicate with others.  You will connect through the DCL-GUEST Wifi Network and exchange chat numbers that you will obtain when you get onboard and then you can use this for messaging while onboard.  If you need additional help in setting up your phone or device, you can visit the onboard Connect@Sea representative for assistance.  Each room also has two Wave Phones that can be used to call or message while onboard and at Castaway Cay.  

    Go ahead and download the app now and set your Cruise Countdown Clock so you can watch the days tick away
    leading up to Embarkation!  Before you know it you will be onboard and off to an incredible adventure!

    Happy Sailing!
