Disney Cruise Line has announced that they will begin providing complimentary texting for their crew members across all four ships. This will allow crew to stay in contact with friends and family while working away from home. The crews aboard Disney ships represent more than 80 different nationalities.
Jeff Vahle, president of Disney Cruise Line said of the move:
“We recognize how important it is for our crew members to be able to stay in touch with their families and friends, and we’re proud to provide this benefit. This is another way Disney continues to provide a great crew experience for our shipboard teams.”
Crew with iOS and Android devices will be able to send and receive text message while onboard for free, starting today on the Disney Magic, then fleet-wide in the next few weeks.
Disney Cruise Line is the first major cruise line to provide free texting for its crew.
