Phones—All staterooms have regular, in-room phones, in addition to portable “Wave Phones” (see below for details on those). For the most part, you’ll use your stateroom phone to call other staterooms, room service, guest services, and other places on the ship. You can call locations off the ship for $6.95/minute at ship-to-shore rates (Disney uses EMC—http://emcconnected.com). You cannot call toll-free numbers from your stateroom phone, nor can you use calling cards. If someone needs to reach you while you’re on the cruise, they can call toll-free 888-DCATSEA (callers from outside the United States can call +1-732-335-3281). Regardless of which number your caller uses, they will be prompted for a major credit card number. Your caller’s card will be charged $6.95 for each minute the call is connected. A less expensive option may be to use your cell phone in your stateroom—see page 157 for details. Another possibility is to use your cell phone when in port and when sailing past places with cell service (you’ll need international roaming) or use a pay phone in port (bring calling cards). Castaway Cay has no pay phones, but it does have cellular coverage.

Wave Phones

Portable “Wave Phones”—which look and feel like cell phones—are provided so you can stay in touch with your party while you’re on the ship. You can send and receive calls and texts on these phones, but you can only use them to contact other Wave Phones or other phones on the ship. Each stateroom comes with two Wave Phones for complimentary use during the cruise. Additional Wave Phones can be rented for $3.50 per day per phone. The Wave Phones work most everywhere on the ship—even on Castaway Cay, but not in other ports. If you have children in the kids’ clubs, the counselors will use your Wave Phone to contact you (rather than the old pager system). Note that you must sign a damage waiver prior to their use (at check-in) and you’ll be charged $250 per phone for loss or damage. You may opt out of using these phones and have the service disconnected in your stateroom by contacting Guest Services. If you choose to carry the Wave Phone around with you, we recommend you not keep them in a pants pocket—we’ve heard reports of them slipping out easily. They do, however, fit neatly in a PassHolder Pouch—you can slip them in the large velcro pocket or slide them snugly into the small pocket on the back (see http://www.passporterstore.com/store/0966899437.aspx for details on the pouch.)

A stateroom refrigerator on the Magic/Wonder

Refrigerator—While it may be best described as a beverage cooler, there is a small refrigerator in the sitting area of your stateroom. It’s cool enough to chill your drinks (roughly 55˚F/13˚C). It is large enough (8"d x 12"w x 16.5"h, or 20.3 cm. x 30.5 cm. x 50 cm. on the Magic Class and 5”d x 12.5”w x 18”h, or 12.5 cm. x 31.75 cm. x 45.7 cm. on the Dream Class) to store several bottles of water, cans of soda/beer, and a bottle of wine or champagne. It seems to work best when it’s 3/4 full. There’s also an ice bucket in the room, and you may request ice for it. Proper refrigerators can be requested to store medication.

Room Service—Free room service is available 24 hours a day for most of your cruise. For details, see page 179. When your food arrives, guests on the Magic Class ships can dine on their coffee table. Guests on the Dream Class ships can put their food on the desk or the top of the hassock.
