Disney Cruise Line has announced another wave of cancellations. All sailings through January 2021 have been cancelled as Disney continues to work through the CDC’s regulations to resume sailing.
As with previous cancellations, Disney Cruise Line is offering guests their choice of a full refund or a 125% credit good for a future cruise.
Voyages aboard the Disney Magic, Disney Wonder and Disney Dream are now cancelled through February 1, 2021. Trips on the Disney Fantasy are now cancelled through February 6, 2021.
It’s unclear when Disney Cruise Line will return to sailing at this time. Disney and other cruise companies have been working to address the CDC’s framework for the resumption of cruises. However, the CDC issued a statement on November 23 that lists cruising as a “Level 4” risk and recommends all people avoid traveling on cruise ships.
Via the CDC:
“CDC recommends that all people avoid travel on cruise ships, including river cruises, worldwide, because the risk of COVID-19 on cruise ships is very high.”
The CDC’s latest comments come as COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations rise throughout the United States. They haven’t issued any new travel restrictions and are placing the responsibility on the cruise companies themselves to make travel safe.
Disney Cruise Line will have to create and test a variety of new measures before guests return. Test cruises were rumored to be taking place in the near future, but the quick rise of COVID-19 cases in the U.S. may delay those plans.
We’d expect Disney Cruise Line to cancel even more cruises in the near future.
