Disney Cruise Line recently cancelled itineraries for the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy through September 15, forcing many guests to wonder about the status of their future sailing. In an effort to give guests a bit more control over their vacations, Disney Cruise Line has introduced a new feature called Cruise Date Flexibility.
According to the Disney Cruise Line Blog, Cruise Date Flexibility will allow guests to change the date of their sailing up to 15 days before the date of their departure. This new option is for new cruises booked by August 31, 2020 that are for sailings through March 31, 2021. Guests who want to change their departure date can do so up to 15 before departure, but they must select an itinerary that departs prior to April 1, 2022.
Note that this offer is only available for new bookings made before August 31, 2020 and only applies to cruises scheduled to leave before March 31, 2021. It’s also worth noting that once you use the Cruise Date Flexibility option, you can’t change it back to your original itinerary.
Summarized, Disney Cruise Line wants guests to feel more comfortable and confident when making their future vacation plans. They don’t want guests to avoid making a reservation out of fear of being locked into a specific date. That flexibility is a great addition given the current uncertainty and potential travel restrictions guests may face in their area.
