It has now been confirmed that the Disney Fantasy will start sailing once again from Port Canaveral on September 11, 2021.
This is following a successful DCD Simulated Cruise which sailed last week.
However, these sailings will be shortened to 4 nights from the scheduled 7 nights.
One more cruise has been cancelled which is the 4 September 2021 sailing. For guests who are booked on this sailing and are paid in full, they will have the option of either receiving a full refund or a 125% Future Cruise Credit (subject to the usual conditions).
The following 7-night sailings will be replaced with 4-night sailings.
The port stops are also different – there will be 2 stops at Castaway Cay.
The cruises will leave Port Canaveral on the originally scheduled day – they will return 3 days early and stay in port for that time without passengers on board.
Of course, it could also be that these are added in as 3-night sailings, but right now we do not have any official word on that.
- 4-Night Western Caribbean Cruise from Port Canaveral September 11, 2021
- 4-Night Eastern Caribbean Cruise from Port Canaveral September 18, 2021
- 4-Night Western Caribbean Cruise from Port Canaveral September 25, 2021
- 4-Night Eastern Caribbean Cruise from Port Canaveral October 2, 2021
Guests can opt to cancel their cruise and receive a full refund.
If guests opt to sail on the shortened 4-night cruise the cost will be pro-rated and the difference will be refunded to them. This refund will include the cruise fare, port taxes, fees and any Vacation Protection Plan.
If guests remain on their original sail date they will also receive a non-refundable $400 On Board Credit per stateroom.
This On-Board Credit can be used for purchases on this sailing – but it is a use it or lose it as it cannot be transferred to another cruise if you don’t spend it all.
If you choose to sail you will also get a 25% discount that can be applied to most future cruises which must be taken by September 30, 2022.
