Disney Cruise Line has been making many adjustments to its existing sailings in response to the global health crisis.
Over the past few months, Disney Cruise Line has gradually canceled cruises further into 2021. So far, cruises through April and part of May have been canceled, as have select cruises over 7 nights.
Last week, we also shared that Canada has extended its cruise ship ban through to 2022. This ban prohibits many cruise ships from Canadian waters. When that first occurred, future Disney cruises that depart from Canada (which include some Alaska cruises) still appeared on the Disney Cruise Line website for booking. But, now things have changed.
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.
It’s been a while since guests have been able to experience a Disney Cruise as Disney continues to cancel sailings.
But in the meantime, the global pandemic continues to not only delay the return of cruises, but it’s changing the way we’ll cruise when they do return. In its latest update, the CDC announced that face masks will be required on all cruise ships.
The Disney Cruise Line has not been in operation since March 2020.
Sailings were originally canceled through February 2021, but that was later extended to March 2021. After a recent extension to the final payment deadline and cancellation policy, more sailings have officially been canceled.
We’re still awaiting the day when we can sail aboard the Disney Cruise Line again. Disney has noted that the cruise line would be the last of its businesses to resume, and that its return to cruising would be delayed by the CDC’s new requirements.
At the moment, Disney Cruise Line has canceled sailings through March of 2021 and select sailings longer than 7 nights as well. To give some flexibility to those with cruises planned for this year, Disney has also adopted some temporarily final payment extensions and has gradually been extending its cruise date flexibility option. And now both of those have been extended once again.
Have you been craving a Disney cruise?
Due to the pandemic, many Disney vacations out on the seas have been canceled in the past several months. Currently, Disney Cruise Line has canceled all sailings through March 2021. But now, Disney Cruise Line has announced that they will be offering a 2-night sailing to Seattle this summer!
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.
Merry Christmas to those who celebrate! We totally wish we could be spending the most magical time of the year on a Very Merrytime Cruise right now with our favorite Disney characters.
While we can’t hop on a Disney Cruise right this second, we’re getting excited about future adventures. We recently saw itineraries announced for Spring 2022, and we can’t wait to see more about one of the newest ships — the Disney Wish — which is still being built. Even though the construction of the latest ships has been delayed by the pandemic, during this morning’s Disney Parks Magical Christmas Day Celebration, Disney shared a fun update about one upcoming addition to Disney Cruise Line. We now know what character statue will be featured in the main lobby of the Disney Wish!
