    What are the exact specifications for white noise machines? I know they need to be inspected by the Chief Electrician, but I want to make sure I bring one that meets the requirements as my child will not sleep without it and I need my phone during her naps

    Welcome aboard, Jessica!  

    How exciting to be planning a Very Merrytime Cruise for the end of this year! There’s nothing like a Disney Cruise Line vacation and adding holiday magic to that special sailing will be such a memorable time for your family.

    I understand the importance of keeping a little one’s routine and consistent environment when traveling. You are correct that the Prohibited Items List states white noise machines will be subject to inspection by the Chief Electrician. I spoke with a friendly Crew Member today to confirm the details to hopefully help your planning and packing.

    White noise machines should:

    • Support the ship’s electrical system (standard wiring and plugs)
    • Should be carried on, not in your checked luggage
    • Carry-on bags cannot exceed measurements of 9” x 14” x 22” so the machine must fit within those dimensions in the bag (in addition to any other items packed)
    • Be sure the cords do not show signs of wear and are in good working condition

    Please know that I don’t have further insight into what may make the Chief Electrician’s final decision beyond this guidance, but I feel confident you’ll be ship shape if you stick to these requirements.  

    My son always sleeps so well aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship and I hope your daughter is the same, Jessica. There’s so much excitement and stimulation, plus the calming atmosphere of the gentle ship motion and sound of the sea to cause anyone to drift off to dreamland easily.

    Please sail back with any additional questions you have as you plan this very magical vacation!

    Bon voyage,
