What If somebody in my party gets sick on board?

On board each Disney Cruise Line® ship, you can find The Health Center, located on Deck 1, Forward which is open during clinic hours to provide non-emergency medical care throughout your cruise. In the event of a medical emergency, a doctor and nurse are on call 24/7. Please note that medical personnel are employed by a company independent of Disney Cruise Line® and standard prevailing fees are charged for all services. For your peace of mind in case of unexpected medical emergencies, we recommend the purchase of the Disney Cruise Vacation Protection Plan for costs incurred for treatment and medical evaluation/repatriation.

What's an assembly drill? Do I have to participate?

Everyone on board the ship must participate in a compulsory safety drill before departure to comply with Coast Guard and international safety regulations. All passengers are notified and required to attend. Just put on the life jackets in your stateroom and follow the instructions heard over the ship's loudspeakers. Once the drill is completed, it's time to set sail!

Are there designated smoking areas on board?

In an effort to provide an enjoyable cruise experience for all our Guests, smoking (including the use of electronic cigarettes) is only permitted in the following designated areas of the ships:

Disney Magic and Disney Wonder
• Deck 4, outdoors, starboard side from 6:00 PM to 6:00 AM

Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy

Guests found smoking in their staterooms or on their verandahs will be charged a $250 stateroom recovery fee. This fee covers deep cleaning that includes air filter replacement, carpet extraction and the cleaning and replacement of drapes, comforters, blankets and pillows, along with verandah cleaning and maintenance.

Can I sail if I am pregnant?

Women who have entered their 24th week of pregnancy as of their embarkation date will be refused passage due to safety concerns. Neither a physician's medical statement nor a waiver of liability will be accepted. In addition, Disney Cruise Line cannot be held responsible or liable for any complications relating to pregnancy at any stage.

Are there lifeguards stationed at each pool?

There are no lifeguards permanently stationed at the pools, so children should only swim with parental supervision.
