Temporary Suspension of Disney Cruise Line Departures

Disney Travel News

By: Disney Destinations
In an abundance of caution and in the best interest of guests and employees,   Disney Cruise Line  has decided to suspend all new departures beginning Saturday, March 14, 2020, through the end of the month. This precautionary measure applies to all four of Disney’s cruise ships.

While Disney knows this decision may be disappointing, the health and wellbeing of guests is of the greatest importance. They are equally committed to the wellbeing of the incredible crew members who live and work aboard the ships and on Castaway Cay. During the suspended operations,   Disney Cruise Line  will continue to compensate our Crew Members and shoreside Cast Members.

The   Disney Dream  will depart on a three-night cruise from Port Canaveral as scheduled on Friday, March 13, and will return to Port Canaveral on Monday, March 16. The   Disney Fantasy  and   Disney Magic  will return to port on Saturday, March 14. The   Disney Wonder,  which is currently in the midst of a westbound Panama Canal cruise, will continue on its scheduled itinerary, with guests disembarking in San Diego on Friday, March 20.

Disney Cruise Line  will offer guests affected by this decision a future cruise credit or a full refund, the details of which will be provided directly to them. Given the higher than normal call volume at our Call Center, they ask that affected guests or their travel agent wait to contact us until after they receive an email from them.

UPDATE: Given the short notice, if you are booked on the   Saturday, March 14, 2020 departures on the Disney Magic and Disney Fantasy, you will have the choice of a 150% cruise credit to be used for a future sailing within 15 months of your original sail date, or a full refund. If you select a future cruise credit and are not able to use it, you will be eligible for a refund up to the amount you paid in full. Standard prevailing rates will apply for future cruises.
