The third time is a charm! Disney Cruise Line’s Navigator app for Apple and Android has been updated to version 3.0 featuring all new pre-cruise features guests can use at home! The updated app will now allow you to do almost everything reservation related in-app as you can do on DisneyCruise.com.
The new version includes a pre-cruise experience allowing you to prepare for your upcoming voyage before leaving home. The app allows you to sign in with the same log in information they use to access My Reservations on DisneyCruise.com.
When you click on your avatar in the app it will take you to a logout screen, at this time the app is not set up to modify your profile.
The newly redesigned Disney Cruise Line Navigator App will feature the following functionality:
If your cruise is not listed, you can easily add an existing reservation by clicking the + Add Reservation button. You will need to enter your birthdate and reservation number to link the cruise to your account.
Clicking on an existing reservation will display the ever favorite cruise countdown click along with summary information and links to manage your reservation. The one thing about this page is the countdown screenshots include a little more detail than you may want to share when you post on social media.
The cruise overview allows you to view details and update various cruise options such as dining seating and any special requests. From this area of the app you can choose to keep or change your dinner Seating assignment. Add or edit Vacation Protection Plan and Ground Transportation and view your Air Transportation. Additionally, you can make Special Requests, including requests for special diets, accommodations for little ones, celebrations and more.
The app will allow you to make payments on your cruise. TouringPlans.com’s writeup on the app update provided some additional details that I was unable to test because my reservations were made through a travel agent. However, they were kind enough to allow us to use the following payment screenshots.
When clicking on My Plans you will be presented with your cruise itinerary along with any pre-booked activities and special events such as information on the sail away or pirate night parties.
The updated app offers you the ability to add activities to your reservation, just click + Add Activities to begin the search. This is also the area in the app to explore activities and entertainment options before deciding on which activities such as Port Adventures, Adult Dining, Onboard Fun, Spa & Fitness or Nursery time you’d like to book.
There are still some options that will take you to your device’s web browser to complete such as online check-in, but the app prompts you to open in your browser which quickly loaded up Disney Cruise LIne’s website with my online check-in page without having to login! From here you can fill out your cruise documents and register kids for youth clubs.
