From time to time, we get some updates about how some of these changes have impacted the Company financially and what potential new changes might be on the horizon. We’re about to get more of those updates soon with Disney’s upcoming quarterly earnings call. And two days ahead of the call, things are changing with Disney’s stock.
A number of months ago, Disney shared that its cruising industry would be the last of its businesses to resume.
So far, we have seen Disney cruises canceled through April, with select cruises canceled through May, and select cruises over 7 nights canceled as well. But, now a major restriction has been announced that could impact a lot of cruises, beyond just Disney Cruise Line.
Dreaming of sailing the seas, watching some amazing live shows, singing Disney karaoke, and eating ALL kinds of delicious food aboard Disney Cruise Line?
So far, Disney Cruise Line has canceled sailings through April, select sailings in May, and select sailings over 7 nights. Back in November of 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (DCDC) created a risk Level 4 Travel Notice for cruising. In response to that Level 4 Travel Notice, Disney has now placed an advisory on its website for future cruisers and how they may be impacted.
Disney Cruise Line recently canceled all departures through January 2021, and the CDC has created a new, higher risk level for cruise travel, but the cruise line industry as a whole is preparing for an eventual return to sailing once it’s safe to do so.
Although cruise lines must meet a variety of new requirements to take passengers on adventures out at sea, that isn’t stopping them from planning for the future and offering guests the chance to get some good deals on future cruise adventures this Black Friday and Cyber Monday!
Going to Disney World is absolutely fantastic, but we have SO missed sailing on Disney Cruise Line!
Cruises in the U.S. had previously been prevented from sailing due to a no-sail order issued by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which had been extended through October 31st. But, now it appears that cruises may be able to sail again soon, provided certain conditions are met.
On March 14th, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention issued a No-Sail Order that has been extended several times.
Now, the latest extension of the order has it expiring on October 31st, allowing cruise ships to sail once again. Ahead of this, the CDC has issued a Level 3 Warning against Cruise Travel.
Recently, a Disney executive noted that Disney Cruise Line will be the last part of the Disney company to resume its business.
Disney Cruise Line recently postponed departure dates through the middle of December aboard the Disney ships. Now, we’ve seen more details about this suspension listed on the Disney Cruise Line website.
Due to the current global situation, guests have not been able to board the Disney Cruise Line for their sailings as previously scheduled.
While Fall 2021 sail dates have been released, Disney Cruise Line has repeatedly had to suspend departure dates for 2020. Now, it looks like Disney Cruise Line will be pushing back its departure dates for 2020 once again!
Ahoy, Mateys! If you’ve ever been on Disney Cruise Line, you’ve probably enjoyed their Pirates IN the Caribbean Party!
On this special cruise night, guests get to dress up as pirates, view fireworks on deck, and enjoy a Caribbean-themed menu in the dining rooms — featuring seafood specialties and island fruit flavors.
We have been closely monitoring any closures or cancellations Disney announces in response to the current outbreak.
Although Shanghai Disneyland announced its plan to re-open yesterday, the U.S. parks remain closed and Disney cruises have been halted. We recently reported that Disney Cruises were being cancelled as far out as the first week in July, but the Adventures by Disney schedule just received another update.
