We shared not too long ago that Disney Cruise Line had officially confirmed they would be going one full year without setting sail. Now, even more Disney Cruises are being canceled, and Disney has provided details to those passengers who were still hoping to head to sea this spring break.

Dear [Guest],

All of us at Disney Cruise Line hope you and your family are staying well.

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 March 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 May 31, 2022, or a full refund. The credit has automatically been added to your account. Once you have decided on an alternate sail date, you may contact your travel agent. Your agent may place a reservation on hold for you by applying this credit 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.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during these times. We look forward to welcoming you aboard as soon as we can and making magic for you and your loved ones.

Sincerely,

Cast & Crew

Disney Cruise Line

*The Future Cruise Credit (FCC) is equal to 125% of your original voyage fare plus the cost of the Vacation Protection Plan, if applicable. The FCC is only valid for sailings departing prior to May 31, 2022. Your original reservation must be paid in full to be eligible for the FCC. The FCC is applied per person and is non-transferable, non-refundable and has no cash value. Standard prevailing rates apply and Guests are responsible for any balance due after the FCC has been applied. If you end up not being able to use the FCC, you will be eligible for a refund up to the amount of your original voyage fare plus the cost of the Vacation Protection Plan, if applicable. Standard cancellation policies and terms and conditions apply to future sailings. Guests who previously received a FCC are not eligible for an additional FCC.

For more information on whether your cruise has been affected, contact Disney Cruise Line or your travel agent. Also, note that Disney has still not announced when sailing will return, regardless of which Disney Cruise Line itineraries are still listed as available for booking online.

There is some good news. We can still expect the Disney Wish to make its debut next year. Disney announced previously that the Disney Wish will begin its maiden voyage in 2022, though an exact date has yet to be revealed. So, it’s clear that Disney is pushing forward with optimism and hope for the years to come.

Disney has also confirmed several itineraries for 2022. If you’re a Castaway Club member, a Disney Cruise Line fan, or you’re like me and you can’t wait to set sail on your first Disney Cruise Line vacation, we highly recommend working with an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner and booking a vacation for 2022 before those highly anticipated cruises sell out for next year.
