Disney Cruise Line announced on Tuesday that it will suspend departures through March 2021.
The cruise line said it is “carefully preparing for a return to service following the guidelines issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As we continue to refine our protocols and await further technical guidance from the CDC, we are cancelling all sailings departing through March 2021.”
Guests who have paid their reservation in full may receive 125% future cruise credit to be used for a future sailing prior to May 31, 2022, or a full refund. The credit has automatically been added to the accounts of advisors’ clients, and can be applied as a payment option when booking a new reservation online on the Disney Travel Agents website.
Guests that have not paid their reservations in full will automatically receive a refund of what they have paid so far.
Affected guests and travel professionals will receive an email from Disney Cruise Line outlining details and next steps.
Other cruise lines have similarly extended cancellations through the spring. Holland America Line and Carnival Cruise Line recently announced they will pause operations through at least March 31, 2021 as they work towards meeting the Framework for Conditional Sailing Order, issued by the CDC last year.
