Disney Cruise Line Puts All New Departures on Hold thru May 17
Following the CDC’s renewal of its no-sail order, Disney Cruise Line has extended its suspension of operations and updated its temporary cancellation policy.
According to a news report posted on Travelweek, a Canada-based travel and tourism website, all departures of the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy have been suspended through May 17, 2020.
All Disney Magic sailings have been suspended through June 7, 2020, while all departures on the Disney Wonder have been cancelled through June, given that neither the Port of Vancouver or an alternate homeport is available.
Guests currently booked on affected sailings will be offered either a cruise credit to be used for a future sailing within 15 months of their original sail date, or a full refund. Impacted guests and their travel agents will receive an email from Disney Cruise Line outlining next steps.
Guests currently booked on a Disney Magic European sailing after June 7 and through the July 25, 2020 departure can change their reservation up until the day before embarkation and receive a 100% cruise credit to be used for a future sailing within 15 months of their original sail date. The credit is non-refundable and standard prevailing rates will apply.
Alternatively, guests currently book on Disney Cruise Line’s July 13, July 18 and July 25, 2020 European sailings may delay their final payment to 30 days prior to their sailing.
In addition, given the current pandemic, Disney Cruise Line is offering temporary adjustments to its cancellation policy to provided added flexibility. All guests scheduled to depart on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy between May 18 and May 31, 2020 can change their reservation up until the day before embarkation and receive a 100% cruise credit to be used for a future sailing within 15 months of their original sail date.
