Disney Cruise Line Offering Final Payment Extension

Today Disney Cruise Line is offering a temporary final payment extension for all sailings now through March 31, 2021. DCL is also temporarily relaxing its cruise cancellation fee schedule for sailings through March 31, 2021.

Disney is sending emails to all guests that have sailings between now and March 31. Below is an example of what is being sent:

“Dear Guest,

All of us at Disney Cruise Line continue to think of you and your family. We realize these are uncertain times for many of our Guests, and want to let you know we’ve temporarily modified our final payment and cancellation policies to provide you with greater flexibility.

For sailings through March 31, 2021, we are temporarily extending final payment until 60 days prior to sailing for Guests booked in unrestricted stateroom categories. This means that those Guests who have not yet reached their final payment due date can wait until up to 60 days prior to sailing to pay for their cruise vacation. Onboard cruise activities can be scheduled within your Castaway Club booking window once final payment is received.

In addition, we are temporarily relaxing our cruise cancellation fee schedule for sailings through March 31, 2021, as described below.

Additional details on the Cruise Date Flexibility Option can be found on our website at DisneyCruise.com.

We look forward to welcoming you aboard for your sailing and hope that this added flexibility is helpful.

Sincerely,
