Disney Cruise Cancellations

This is the latest news available on the cancellations. Disney Cruise Lines has released more dates that are included in their temporary suspension of sailings.

Updated 24 February 2021

All Disney Dream and Fantasy Cruises up to 31st May 2021 are canceled. Disney Wonder cruises are canceled until May 31, 2021 and Disney Magic cruises until August 18, 2021.

  • Disney Wonder Cruises next bookable September 17, 2021

  • Disney Dream Cruises next bookable June 4, 2021
  • Disney Fantasy Cruises next bookable June 2, 2021

When Will Disney Cruises Sail Again?

There is so much speculation about when Disney Cruises will sail again – but right now we simply do not know the answer.

The CDC has issued guidelines that require compliance before each cruise ship is issued a Conditional Sailing Certificate.

Only when each Disney ship has met these standards will they be permitted to sail again out of US ports.

These requirements are of course, very stringent, and will take some time before any cruise line is able to obtain the necessary Conditional Sailing Certificate.

Part of the requirements is that each ship has a “test run” where it will have to show that they can comply with all the new safety regulations.

There really aren’t many details about this except that all individuals on these sailings must be over the age of 18 and demonstrated to have no pre-existing health conditions. 

The Disney ships will of course have to return to their respective ports and have a full crew. This again takes some time to set up the logistics of this.

What Happens If Your Disney Cruise is Cancelled?

Disney Cruise Lines has outlined their new policy which extends the Future Credit from May 31, 2022 until September 30, 2022.

Disney has sent this email to all who are affected by the changes:

Disney Cruise Line is offering guests the choice of a 125% future cruise credit to be used for a future sailing up to a September 30, 2022 sail date, or a full refund.
All of us at Disney Cruise Line hope you and your family are staying well. We are reaching out with important information about the cruise credit you were previously provided.
When your sailing was cancelled due to the pandemic, you were offered the choice of either a future cruise credit* equal to 125% of your original voyage fare or a full refund. We are now extending the use of your future cruise credit from sailings commencing prior to May 31, 2022 to sailings that depart by September 30, 2022.
Your credit has been automatically updated. If you have not done so already, your travel agent may place a reservation on hold by applying it as a payment option when booking a new reservation. Once your modified reservation is paid in full, any remaining future cruise credit will be applied to your shipboard account as a non-refundable onboard credit.
If you have any questions, please contact your travel agent. Sailings are currently available through spring 2022 with additional eligible sailings to be released at a later date.
We appreciate the planning that goes into a cruise vacation and hope you enjoy this additional time to travel. We look forward to welcoming you aboard as soon as we can and making magic for you and your loved ones.
Sincerely,
Cast & Crew
Disney Cruise Line
*The Future Cruise Credit is equal to 125% of your original voyage fare plus the cost of the Vacation Protection Plan, if applicable. The FCC is only valid for sailings commencing on or before September 30, 2022. Select Disney Wish block-out dates apply. Your original reservation must be paid in full to be eligible for the FCC. The FCC is applied per person and is non-transferable, non-refundable and has no cash value. Standard prevailing rates apply and Guests are responsible for any balance due after the FCC has been applied. If you end up not being able to use the FCC, you will be eligible for a refund up to the amount of your original voyage fare plus the cost of the Vacation Protection Plan, if applicable. Standard cancellation policies and terms and conditions apply to future sailings. Guests who previously received a FCC are not eligible for an additional FCC.

Note that this now states that Disney Wish block out dates apply. No word yet on when the Disney Wish sailings will be released, but it seems unlikely that any Future Cruise Credit will be able to be applied to those sailings.

Details of the Disney Future Cruise Credit

The Future Cruise Credit is equal to 125% of the original voyage fare plus the cost of the Vacation Protection Plan, if you have purchased this.

The Future Cruise Credit is only valid for sailings departing up to September 30, 2022. This is a change from the original policy and extends the date out further for rebookings. 

 The original reservation must be paid in full to be eligible for the Future Cruise Credit. This means that if you cancel prior to Disney canceling you are not eligible for the 125% Future Cruise Credit.

The FCC is applied per person and is non-transferable, non-refundable and has no cash value and may be divided across multiple sailings.

Standard cancellation policies and terms and conditions apply to future sailings. Guests who previously received an FCC are not eligible for an additional FCC.

Disney Wish Cruise Ship Delayed – The Facts Updated

If your future sailing costs more than your FCC you will be responsible for the balance. If it costs less then any excess will be applied as an On-Board Credit.

When you rebook your cruise using your FCC you will pay the standard rate at the time that you rebook. We have no way of predicting how prices for Disney Cruises will change in the coming months, so it may be that they become more expensive, or even that they are reduced.

Guests who booked their reservation through a travel agent should contact them directly with any questions. If you booked directly with Disney Cruise Line you should call  (866) 325-6685 or (407) 566-7797.

101 BEST DISNEY CRUISE TIPS

disneycruiseexcursions

Disney Cruise Lines, like all services, has a supply and demand pricing model. Therefore if after this crisis is over there is a high demand for Disney cruises it is likely that prices will remain at current levels or increase.

As Disney only have 4 ships right now, until Disney Wish arrives, they do not have the issues that larger cruise lines, such as Princess or Royal Caribbean have.

Once those cruises come back online they have a lot of space to fill. Disney is a luxury cruise line with limited capacity and very loyal fans. It will certainly be interesting to see how prices go over the next year or so.

Right now, all Disney Cruises are canceled up to at least April 30, 2021. There are also some itineraries canceled in May.

Disney Cruise Line Itineraries More Than 7 Nights

disney cruise trivia

In order to comply with the CDC Conditional Sail Order, Disney has had to cancel some sailings which were more than 7 nights.

So far there have been 3 cruises affected by these changes:

  1. Usually, the Disney Fantasy sails 7 night Western and Eastern Caribbean itineraries from Port Canaveral. However, occasionally she will sail shorter or longer itineraries. The 9 night Disney Fantasy sailing was due to leave Port Canaveral on July 22, 2021, has been canceled, but it has been replaced with alternative itineraries.

This sailing has been replaced with a 3-night Bahamian sailing and a 6 night Western Caribbean sailing. Both of these options are available to book from December 21, 2021.

Guests who were already booked on this sailing will be offered a 10% discount on the cost of either the 3 or 6-night replacement itinerary.

For guests who were already paid in full, they can choose either a 125% future cruise credit to be used for a future sailing prior to May 31, 2022, or a full refund.

2. The Disney Wonder was due to sail on 28 June 2021 on a 9-night Alaskan cruise from Vancouver. This has been replaced with a 7-night cruise from Vancouver.

For guests who were already paid in full, they can choose either a 125% future cruise credit to be used for a future sailing prior to May 31, 2022, or a full refund.

Guests who were booked on the 9 night cruise can also opt for a 10% discount on the replacement 7 night cruise.

3. The Disney Magic was due to sail on a 13 night Transatlantic Cruise from Miami to Barcelona on May 9, 2021. This cruise has been cancelled.

At the moment, no replacement cruise has been announced. The Disney Magic is still in Europe at the moment – having spent a lot of time since the shut down in the port of Dover.

If you were booked on this cruise and have paid your reservation in full you can choose either a 125% future cruise credit to be used for a future sailing prior to May 31, 2022, or a full refund.
