Disney Cruise Line announced today that all 2020 sailings have been canceled.
From Disney Cruise Line:
“Our team at Disney Cruise Line remains focused on the health and well-being of our guests and team members. We are carefully reviewing the guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and working together with industry partners on a path to resuming operations.
As we continue to refine our protocols for our eventual return to service, we have decided to cancel all sailings through December 2020. Sailings are cancelled on board the Disney Fantasy through December 26; Disney Wonder and Disney Magic through December 30; and the Disney Dream through December 31.
Guests booked on affected sailings who have paid their reservation in full will be offered the choice of a cruise credit to be used for a future sailing or a full refund. Guests who have not paid their reservations in full will automatically receive a refund of what they have paid so far. Affected Guests and travel professionals will receive an email from Disney Cruise Line outlining details and next steps.”
Up until now, sailings had been canceled due to the CDC’s No Sail Order. Now that the No Sail Order has expired and cruise lines can resume operations, sailings are being canceled while cruise lines prepare.
In order to resume sailing with guests onboard, cruise lines need to meet certain requirements and have test sailings. Hopefully, Disney Cruise Line will be ready to welcome guests back in January!
