Temporary Suspension of Select Disney Cruise Line Departures

Disney Cruise Line Extends Suspension of All Departures through May and Disney Magic sailings through Aug. 10, 2021

Our team at Disney Cruise Line remains focused on the health and well-being of our Guests and team members. We are 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 May 2021.

Given the likelihood of international borders remaining closed for an extended period of time, we have also made the decision to cancel Disney Magic sailings through Aug. 10, 2021.

We are offering affected Guests who have paid their reservation in full the choice of a 125% future cruise credit* to be used for a future sailing prior to Sept. 30, 2022, or a full refund. The credit has automatically been added to your clients’ account and can be applied as a payment option when booking a new reservation online. 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.

Most Adventures by Disney Escape Packages that are booked in conjunction with one of these Disney Cruise Line vacations will also be cancelled. Travel Agents and Guests who are booked on one of these packages will receive a SeaMail and a phone call from Adventures by Disney.  Guests who purchased an Adventures by Disney cruise package as part of the vacation will automatically receive a refund back to the original form of payment.

SeaMails will be going out today. Below is a sample of the messages being sent.

SEAMAIL FOR GUESTS ON CANCELLED VOYAGES THROUGH THE FOLLOWING SAILINGS:

Disney Wonder through 5/31/21                  (5/31 – 6/7)

Disney Dream through 5/31/21                     (5/31 – 6/4)
