Disney Cruise Line has posted a new job opening for a beach lifeguard at Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island, suggesting they may soon resume sailings.
Disney Cruise Line has canceled sailings through February 2021, and removed March sailings from their website. While it’s likely lifeguards have been working with a skeleton crew at Castaway Cay during this near year-long closure, a job posting suggests they are in need of more people soon. Currently, Disney Cruise Line lists 26 sailings leaving in April 2021.
In October, the CDC allowed their no-sail order to expire and established guidelines for cruise lines to resume passenger cruises. The CDC’s phased plan includes testing for crew members, ensuring cruise ship operators have adequate health and safety measures, simulated voyages to test operations, and certification for ships that meet requirements before a phased return to passenger sailings will begin.
Disney Cruise Line recently released a new commercial showing guests wearing masks, indicating that masks will be required when sailings resume.
