Disney Cruise Line Suspends Departures Through Early December

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) ordered a No Sail Order and Suspension of Further Embarkation that was extended until September 30, 2020. Taking health and safety seriously, Disney Cruise Line already cancelled departures through early November. Now the cruise line has suspended new sailings through early December in advance of possible CDC extensions to the No Sail Order.

Disney Cruise Line Response

Naturally, Disney will take care of those guests affected by these cancellations. They will offer guests who have paid their reservations in full the option to receive credit for their payments towards a future booking that’s worth 125% of their fare or to receive a full refund. Those receiving a credit will have to May 31, 2022 to complete a future sailing. Guests who made a partial payment will receive a refund for the amount they’ve paid. Anybody who booked their passage with a third party company will need to contact them for information concerning their reservations.

SeaMail Communication

All affected guests and travel professionals will receive specific information about the next steps they need to take during this process. A SeaMail detailing these measures is expected to have gone out on September 15, so check your email for more information.

  1. No surprise really. Until the CDC creates guidelines for the cruise industry and the cruise lines make what ever changes are needed to meet those guidelines, there will be no sailings. That aside, where will the cruises go? Until other nations open their ports and tourism to foreign nations, there is nowhere for the cruises to go. I doubt people will be willing to pay Disney premium prices for a mere boat ride.
