1. Browse Itineraries
Discover itineraries that sail to places around the world! Browse sailing dates, departure ports, cruise length, and ports of call to decide which sailing is right for your travel party.
2. Book Your Cruise
Once you’ve selected your itinerary, you’ll begin the booking process where you will choose your stateroom. You can then pay in full, make a partial payment or put down a deposit to hold your reservation. Using a travel agent is extremely helpful with this process!
3. Download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App
You can use the Navigator app to explore your ship, read articles and learn helpful tips before your cruise. You can also make modifications to your reservation, add special requests and services, and pre-pay gratuities. While on board, the app allows you to see all the activities on your cruise, view menus, communicate with your travel party and more.
4. Book On Board Activities and Port Adventures
Once your cruise is paid in full, and you’ve reached your booking activities window, you can reserve Port Adventures, spa treatments, adult-exclusive dining and more. If you’re a first-time Disney cruiser, you can begin booking 75 days before your sailing date. Castaway Club members can book further in advance! Be sure to book your desired activities as soon as possible as activities may fill up fast.
5. Pre-Book Photo Packages
Consider booking a photo package to capture all magic that goes along with a Disney cruise. Pre-book select photo products at least 3 days before the start of your cruise for a discount off the on-board price!
6. Final Preparations
Make sure you have your travel documents with you as you board the ship, not in your checked luggage. You’ll need everyone’s passport or citizenship documents for check-in at the port. To ensure smooth sailing, review the prohibited items list before you arrive at the port.
7. Sea Ya Real Soon!
Finalize your travel accommodations and prepare to step aboard your Disney cruise vacation! Be sure to arrive at the port at your designated arrival time.
