    Hi! My family will be cruising on the Fantasy on June 23rd for 7 nights. I have two teenagers and was wondering if we would be able to use our cell phones on the ship to contact each other?

    Hi Christine!

    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  I'm known as one of the cruise moms, and I'm thrilled to help you with your upcoming cruise on the majestic Disney Fantasy!  Sailing on the newest member of the Disney fleet is very exciting!

    Cell phones can be used onboard with the Cellular at Sea program.  Pricing will be determined by your cellular provider and international roaming charges usually apply.  Rates for usage can be verified by your particular service provider. 

    To avoid expensive cell phone bills while cruising, Disney Cruise Line does have Wave Phones available for your family's use while onboard.  Two phones are complimentary and will already be in your stateroom when you arrive.  They can be used for talking and texting on the ship as well as on Castaway Cay.  If two phones is not enough, you can request more but an additional charge will be applied to your onboard account.  A $250 charge will be added to your account if the phones get damaged or lost during the cruise. 

    My husband and I used the Wave Phones on our cruise last Spring and loved the convenience of being able to text and call without being charged expensive rates by our wireless carrier.

    If you have any more questions before your June departure, please let me know!

    Bon Voyage!
