    We are going on the 4-Night Bahamian Cruise from Port Canaveral on January 23rd. We were wondering if we can pay for things like the tips, port adventures and on-board activities in advance? It would be nice to leave knowing everything is paid for. Thanks!

    Ahoy, Ciarra!

    Can you believe you'll be leaving the blustery winter weather behind and heading out to sea with Disney Cruise Line in just a few weeks? I bet you already have your flip-flops, bathing suit and sunscreen packed for your Bahamian adventure with Captain Mickey. 

    As you prepare for your time on the beautiful Disney Dream, you can plan ahead by paying your gratuities before you leave and setting up an onboard credit for your other purchases including Port Adventures and onboard activities like spa treatments and adult-dining experiences. You'll want to call Disney Cruise Line at (800) 951-3532 with a credit card at least three days before you leave to have your gratuities charged prior to departure. While you are on the phone with a cruise line representative pre-paying the gratuities, you can also set up an onboard credit with your charge card. Your onboard purchases will be deducted from this credit throughout the cruise. You can check your purchases on your stateroom TV or by stopping by Guest Services on Deck 3 for a print out. 

    Best wishes for a magical time on your Bahamian getaway, Ciarra! If you think of any other last minute questions we are hEAR to help.

    Bon Voyage!
