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!
Early last year, Disney Cruise Line began suspending some of its sailings due to the global pandemic.
Disney officials did note that the cruise line would be the last of Disney’s businesses to return. Most recently, Disney Cruise Line canceled sailings through February of 2021, but we also saw that they had removed March sailings from their website. Now, Disney Cruise Line has extended the cancelation of their sailings through more of 2021.
This year has been particularly challenging for the travel industry including Disney. First, the company saw the closure of its theme parks all over the world due to the global pandemic. On top of this, Disney Cruise Line sailings are completely halted for the time being.
Most recently, Disney Cruise Line canceled any sailings lasting longer than seven nights due to new guidelines by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Previously, the company had already canceled cruises through the end of February 2021.
Disney Cruise Line vacations have been suspended due to the global health crisis.
Disney has accommodated cruise guests by offering cancellation flexibility. The policy gives vacationers the option to modify their cruise up to 15 days prior to their departure date. This temporary policy was originally good between August 31st, 2020 through March 31st, 2021 and has now been extended. [Read more…]
Back in June, Disney Cruise Line extended the suspension of its U.S. departures for Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy through mid-September. Now it’s starting to look likely sailings could be postponed again.
Today, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have just extended their “No Sail Order” through the end of September which means U.S. cruise lines will not be able to disembark from U.S. ports until October at the earliest.
Disney Cruise Line has already announced that European sailings are canceled through October 2nd, 2020, and Canadian sailings are canceled through September 14th, 2020.
