Disney Cruise Line was supposed to conduct its first test cruise tomorrow, June 29. That test sailing has now been postponed. The sailing was set to depart from Port Canaveral on the Disney Dream.
The Canaveral Port Authority is reporting that the test sailing has been canceled with no future date set.
“We are delaying our simulation cruise due to a small number of inconsistent COVID-19 test results, which are considered positive by the CDC,” a Disney representative said in a statement. “The rigorous health and safety protocols we have in place helped us identify the situation, though the test results were ultimately negative.”
During routine surveillance testing of crew members on the Disney Dream last week, five out of 600 crew members tested positive for COVID-19. Those crew members had been recently vaccinated and were asymptomatic. Disney officials said those crew members were tested the next day and the results were negative.
We aren’t sure when Disney Cruise Line will conduct their test sailings. Stay tuned for more info and updates!
