Disney Cruise Line releases onboard schedule via app

Disney Cruise Line is testing a new app that will give cruisers access to the daily Navigators on their smartphones. Currently, the paper Navigators are delivered to staterooms each night and serve as a guide to activities happening around the ship. Available for both iOS and Android devices, the Disney Fantasy - Navigator app works via the ship's internal Intranet and will provide more content than the paper copy. The app works while your phone is on Airplane Mode and doesn't use the pay-per-minute satellite internet connection.

Cruisers can use a "favorites" function to virtually highlight the activities they want to do while on the cruise. A calendar will be available for the whole sailing, so you can make plans in advance. Click on each item and more detailed information about the event will pop up. Each day, check the app for the daily schedule, information on the port of call, weather forecast, sunrise and sunset times, character meeting times and the dress code for dinner. You can even check the menus for the main dining rooms, the Drink of the Day selection and a ship-wide map.

The app's functionality is currently only available for the September 7th and 14th sailings on the Disney Fantasy, but it will be expanding to the other three ships soon.
