It may be a long time before Disney Cruise Line is allowed to resume operating. The CDC has extended their “No Sail Order” for 100 days, forcing cruise operators to cease operations until either the 100 days expires or the order is lifted. As a result, Disney Cruise Line has cancelled all cruises through May 17, 2020.
Disney Cruise Line recently cancelled all of the Disney Wonder’s itineraries through the end of June 2020. Now, they’re cancelling all itineraries through May 17 with the belief being that more waves of cancellations are to come due to the updated CDC guidelines.
The announcement from Disney Cruise Line, which can be seen in its entirety here, details how refunds and cruise credit will be handled.
The CDC’s updated order, which you can read here, is dated April 9, 2020 and would impact all sailings through July 18, 2020 unless the order is lifted earlier.
Unfortunately, the CDC’s 100-day extension to their “No Sail Order” means that more Disney Cruise Line cancellations are expected in the future. It looks like Disney is trying to stagger its cancellations to avoid bogging down its phone lines and customer service resources all at one time.
Guests holding Disney Cruise Line reservations within the CDC’s 100-day window should wait to change their plans until Disney officially cancels the itineraries to ensure a full refund.
