    Hi. We will be doing a Disney cruise in about a week and we’d like to be able to communicate with each other as we adventure out and explore the ship. Do walkie talkies work well on the ship or are there any other options for onboard communication? Thanks!

    Hi David,

    Your Disney Cruise Line voyage is coming up so soon! You must be getting so excited! I am happy to help you think about communication with your traveling party while onboard the ship.

    I think that absolutely the easiest way to stay in touch with your traveling party while you are onboard a Disney ship is by using the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App. Once you are onboard, this app has a chat feature that you can use while aboard your ship to keep in touch with your traveling party. We use this onboard, and it works quite well for my husband, myself, and our teenage daughter. There is also a feature that allows you to connect with guests in other staterooms if you are sailing with other parties. Be sure to download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App before you set sail!

    Walkie talkies are not listed on the prohibited items list from Disney Cruise Line. However, some guests have found issues in using walkie talkies onboard in that the reception can be spotty. If you are able, I would suggest that you use the chat feature on the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App while your party explores different parts of the ship.

    Have a great time sailing away, David!
