Although Disney Cruise Line has delayed sailings on all of its ships — the Disney Dream, the Disney Fantasy, the Disney Magic, and the Disney Wonder — into December 2020, the Wonder is currently making moves on the high seas.
Photographer Antonio Simas shared this post on his Facebook page Friday. In English, the caption reads:
My friends, this is the DISNEY WONDER cruise ship today.This was a technical scale for refueling.On board are only crew members.Your departure is scheduled for 18:452020.10.09
Minhas amigas e meus amigos, este é o navio de cruzeiros DISNEY WONDER que escalou PDL hoje.Tratou-se de uma escala…
According to Cruise Industry News, the Wonder‘s current journey will take it to a dry-dock location in France:
Taking advantage of the downtime in operations, Disney Cruise Line is performing routine regulatory class work and upgrades on its fleet, according to sources familiar with the work.
The Disney Wonder, built in 1999, is on her way to a drydock in Brest, France and was in Ponta Delgada in the Azores for a technical stop last week where she took on fuel having sailed from Port Canaveral.
The official Disney Cruise Line website confirms that the Disney Wonder currently has five sailings available from January to March 2021. All of these are Baja Mexico cruises that set sail from the Port of San Diego.
Disney currently has the following COVID-19 travel notice posted on the DCL website:
Disney Cruise Line Extends Suspension of All Departures Through at Least December 6, 2020
As we continue to refine health and safety protocols for our future return to service and await direction from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Disney Cruise Line has decided to further extend its suspension of new sailings.
Sailings are cancelled on board the Disney Fantasy through December 6; the Disney Dream and Disney Wonder through December 11; and the Disney Magic through December 12.
Guests booked on affected sailings who have paid their reservation in full will be offered the choice of a cruise credit to be used for a future sailing or a full refund. Guests who have not paid their reservations in full will automatically receive a refund of what they have paid so far. Affected Guests and travel agents will receive an email from Disney Cruise Line outlining details and next steps.
Guests who booked their reservation through a travel agent should contact them directly with any questions. Those who booked directly with Disney Cruise Line and have questions after receiving their email should call (866) 325-6685 or (407) 566-7797.
