    Hello, How do I access the Cruise Line Navigator App while on board? Does the Disney Wonder have complimentary WiFi? Thank you. 😊

    Hi Emmanuel,  

    It’s great to connect with you again – your exciting Disney Cruise Line vacation over the Christmas holiday is nearly here! I’m happy to share what you need to know about using the handy Disney Cruise Line Navigator App onboard the beautiful Disney Wonder.

    Before you leave for your cruise, please be sure you have the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App downloaded and updated to the latest version. Then, when you arrive at the port terminal (or once you set foot onboard), you can access the Disney Cruise Line Wi-Fi Network which will enable the full use of “onboard mode” in the app. You do not need to purchase additional internet access to enjoy all the features of the app while on vacation. This includes seeing your full dining rotation and nightly menus, exploring all the wonderful activities and entertainment, and chat features with those in your sailing party or others you wish to connect with onboard. Be sure to connect to the ship’s Wi-Fi network and once you sail away, please put your device in airplane mode to avoid unnecessary roaming charges. You’ll find complimentary access to all the great features and tools in your Disney Cruise Line Navigator App as well as most Disney-hosted websites onboard.

    “Connect @ Sea” is an option for purchasing additional full internet access, which may be done from your app once you are on the ship. The Disney Wonder allows you to purchase access by data size rather than time, from a pay-as-you-go option to various sized packages. If you’re interested in this option, you can look at the exact pricing for your Australian sailing once onboard and I know any friendly crew member would be glad to help you configure this in your device if desired. 

    In my cruises on various ships, I’ve used both options with great success. I’ve had vacations where I needed full internet access for something urgent at work and the connection purchased was smooth and seamless to get the job done at sea. I like to hide away in Cove Café for a quiet place with a table to work. I’ve also been on many cruises where I leave my laptop at home and can enjoy all the great features and information provided in the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App without purchasing any additional connectivity.

    I hope this has you excited for what’s next, Emmanuel! Be sure to explore all the great activities, menus, and entertainment schedules once you’re on the gorgeous Disney Wonder so you can start planning your favorites for the trip ahead.  

    Wishing you a magical cruise,
