An official from Disney Cruise Line reported:

“We are delaying our simulation cruise due to a small number of inconsistent COVID-19 test results, which are considered positive by the CDC,” according to the statement. “The rigorous health and safety protocols we have in place helped us identify the situation, though the test results were ultimately negative.”

The Disney Dream, the cruiser planned to kick off the new season, would have been the first back to set sail from Port Canaveral for a two day cruise.

Regarding US and Canada launches, the Disney Cruise line site states:

‘The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently approved our application to conduct a simulation cruise aboard the Disney Dream on June 29. This is an important next step toward our gradual and responsible resumption of service in U.S. waters. While we continue to work closely with the CDC to refine our new health and safety protocols, it will take some time to bring our Crew back on board and prepare our ships to welcome Guests once again. Therefore, it is necessary for us to cancel Disney Dream departures through August 6, 2021, Disney Fantasy departures through August 28, 2021, Disney Wonder departures through September 19, 2021, and Disney Magic departures in the US through November 4, 2021.’

The cruise does not have a scheduled date ahead for sailing but all Disney fleet sailings are cancelled through August 6 at the earliest.
