Disney Adds Free Texting for Crew

Disney Cruise Line announced it will provide complimentary texting to crew members onboard its ships, according to a press release.

“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,” said Jeff Vahle, president of Disney Cruise Line. “This is another way Disney continues to provide a great crew experience for our shipboard teams.”

Disney Cruise Line said it is the first major cruise line to provide this complimentary service. Crew 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.
