The Cruise Line International Association announced today that they are extending the suspension of cruise operations at U.S. ports until September 15, 2020. Disney Cruise Line is a member of the Cruise Line International Association (CLIA).

The CDC’s No Sail Order, which expires July 24, has not been extended as of now. Check out the official announcement from CLIA below:

“Due to the ongoing situation with the U.S. related to COVID-19, CLIA member cruise lines have decided to voluntarily extend the period of suspended passenger operations. The current No Sail Order issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will expired on 24 July, and although we had hoped that cruise activity could resume as soon as possible after that date, it is increasingly clear that more time will be needed to resolve barriers to resumption in the United States.

Although we are confident that future cruises will be healthy and safe, and will fully reflect the latest protective measures, we also feel that it is appropriate to err on the side of caution to help ensure the best interests of our passengers and crewmembers. We have therefore decided to further extend our suspension of operations from U.S. ports until 15 September. The additional time will also allow us to consult with the CDC on measures that will be appropriate for the eventual resumption of cruise operations.

This voluntary suspension applies to all CLIA members to which the No Sail Order applied (vessels with capacity to carry 250 persons or more). CLIA member cruise lines will continually evaluate the evolving situation and make a determination as to whether a further extension is necessary.”

As of today, Disney Cruise Line has canceled sailings in Europe through October 2, in Canada through September 2, and all other itineraries through July 17. We expect DCL to announce more cancelations soon.
