    Hi, on the Navigator app if we give our kids access when we get on board so that we are able to message each other, does that mean they will have full app functionality? I’m concerned they could accidentally delete an activity we’ve got booked?

    Hi there, Andrew! Thank you for cruising our way with your question. 

    The Disney Cruise Line Navigator app is a helpful resource, for sure! This past cruise was the first time I let my son have access to the app. In the past, he used my phone to view the Daily Activity Schedule. But this trip, we wanted him to be able to message us, so I downloaded the app to his iPad. I’m happy to share my experience with you. 

    First, make sure the app is downloaded to everyone’s mobile device. Your children do not need a Disney Cruise Line account; this applies to “big kids,” too. The app transforms for everyone once connected to the ship’s Wi-Fi. My husband doesn’t have his own account, but he can still access all the onboard features. Upon embarkation, each Guest will be prompted to link their stateroom. Once connected, your children can access the onboard activities and the chat feature. Don’t worry; they won’t be able to book or change any of your reserved activities. 

    For safety, Guests under the age of 13 may only use the chat function by obtaining a unique pin from the Primary Guest in the stateroom. This is usually the name of the first person on the reservation. Tap the child’s name in the app on a grownup's phone to obtain the pin. Your kids can then enter this pin on their app and start chatting. If you approve, they can also chat with any friends they make in the clubs.

    I hope you have a fantastic voyage! Please sail our way again. My pals and I are delighted to help!

    SEAS the adventure!
