Earlier this week, version 2.0 of the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app was released featuring an all new look. Since launching in 2013, the Navigator app has been incrementally updated with new features and bug fixes. This latest version has been redesigned with a new look and intuitive feel. According to the release notes features “all the things you’ve loved about our previous version of the app – and made the entire experience even better”.
The DCL Navigator app will allow passengers to view all booked activities in one convenient place with My Plans. Quickly and easily access your dining schedule, see the latest onboard promotions via the new Spotlight section.
The one area of the app that is not going over well with our followers on social media is the Cruise Vacation Countdown Clock. The feedback on this Tweet and Facebook post is unanimous. What do you think?
It is recommended that you download the app prior arriving for your cruise to avoid any excess data charges, for instance, the iOS app is just under 70 MB. The DCL Navigator app is available to download for Apple and Android devices.
If you ask me, the DCL Navigator app looks much better, but is missing a key onboard component, the ability to look at my onboard account folio. Who knows, maybe one day there will be a test of a folio feature on the Fantasy. I really wish the app featured content for when not onboard the ship that tied into your Castaway Club / My Disney Experience account to manage future cruise such as the ability to browse and book onboard activities or port adventures via the app. Aside from the countdown clock, the app offers very little incentive to keep to it installed on your device and even less in the way of keeping you connected to the cruise line.
Below are additional screenshots from the app.
