The Disney Dream returned to sailing recently, along with some new health and safety measures. And now, Disney cruising is coming back to the West Coast as well, because the Disney Wonder is returning soon!
After a long hiatus, cruises have started to set sail from the U.S. again.
This includes cruises from Disney Cruise Line, which now has specific COVID-19 testing requirements prior to cruising and mask mandates. Recently, the Bahamas passed a new Emergency Powers that states all cruise ships on passenger voyages will not be allowed to enter a port in the Bahamas unless certain requirements are met. Now, there has been an update for Disney Cruise Line sailings to the Bahamas.
Are you excited about the Disney Wish?
A few months ago, Disney released TONS of information about the new Disney Cruise Line ship! The ship will include Disney’s first-ever attraction at sea, a Frozen-themed restaurant, an adults-only Star Wars lounge, and SO much more! One of the biggest restaurant announcements for the ship was the Marvel dining experience, and Disney just dropped even more details about it!
It’s been a crazy few months for the Disney Cruise Line!
We’re slowly seeing operations resume with the introduction of test cruises and the U.K. Staycations at Sea. But if you’re hoping to set sail in fall 2022 (aka after the grand debut of the NEW Disney Wish ship), we’ve got some news for ya!
This year has been a challenging one, especially for the travel industry.
Walt Disney World was closed for several months, and Disneyland Resort still hasn’t reopened. We’re not sure when traveling will start to return to normal, but for guests sailing with Disney Cruise Line, there are still several challenges ahead in 2021, as Disney continues to postpone sailing dates and cancel reservations.
Disney has consistently been churning out news and updates to their procedures since reopening in July.
Lots of the news has been focused on the reopening of the parks, but there have also been many guidelines that affect Disney Cruise Line. Disney CEO, Bob Chapek, recently shared some news about the future of Disney cruises!
Though Disney’s theme parks in Florida have officially been reopened for a few months, other Disney operations out of the Sunshine State, namely Disney Cruise Line, haven’t operated since March.
And because of the coronavirus pandemic, Disney Cruise Line has suspended all of its sailings through mid-December.
In a conference held yesterday, a Disney executive indicated that Disney Cruise Line would be one of the last of Disney’s businesses to resume.
We already shared with you that departures would be suspended through the end of October, but now we’ve got an update on some cruise cancellations.
Now, Canada has announced all cruise ships carrying more than 100 passengers are prohibited from operating in Canadian waters until October 31, 2020.
While general booking for the new 2021 Disney Cruise Line summer itineraries we shared with you yesterday won’t open until February 28th, such is not the case if you’re a platinum member!
In fact, if you’re among Disney Cruise Line’s sailing elite, you can snag your reservations to set sail in 2021 RIGHT NOW!
