Cruise line awaits guidance from CDC
Disney Cruise Line is extending its cancellations of sailings through mid-December.
On its website, a statement titled “Disney Cruise Line Coronavirus (COVID-19) Travel Alert,” said, “As we continue to refine health and safety protocols for our future return to service and await direction from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Disney Cruise Line has decided to further extend its suspension of new sailings.”
Disney officials said all cruises are canceled for the Disney Fantasy through at least Dec. 6.
For other ships, like the Disney Dream and Wonder, cancellations are in effect through Dec. 11.
The rest of Disney’s fleet will not leave the port until Dec. 12 or later.
Previously, the cruise line canceled its sailings through November, but as cases of COVID-19 continued to rise and the hunt for a vaccine continues, the cruise line decided to extend the cancellations to keep guests and employees safe.
Anyone who booked a cruise before the cancellations will receive a full refund, Disney officials said.
Over the summer, Disney Cruise Line announced that all sailings through July 28 were canceled due to concerns over the coronavirus.
Those who booked with Disney Cruise Line and have questions should contact Disney by calling (866) 325-6685 or (407) 566-7797.
