Today, Disney Cruise Line announced that it will provide free texting to Crew Members onboard its ships, making it easier for our shipboard teams to “K.I.T” (keep in touch) with their loved ones while working away from home.  

Disney Cruise Line is proud to be the first major cruise line to provide this complimentary service. Our Crew Members with iOS and Android devices will be able to send and receive text messages while onboard for free. The service will launch today onboard the Disney Magic and will be available fleet wide in the next few weeks. 

This is something our Crew Members have told us would greatly improve their crew experience, and we’re so excited to be able to make it happen for them. Our Crew Members are the heart of making magic for thousands of guests each year on our ships and we’re always looking for ways to improve their crew experience.
