Disney Cruise Line has been dark for some time as the pandemic has brought cruising to a halt. We now have a DCL update that indicates the cruise operator is still intending to set sail by summer 2021, despite canceling all cruises through April of this year. This new itinerary is for two nights and stays within North America. Let’s dive into all the details!
The Disney Wonder will be setting sail on two-night sailing starting July 5, 2021. This sailing is now available to book. The itinerary for this cruise is set as leaving from Vancouver, BC on a Tuesday and arriving in Seattle, WA on Wednesday.
If you previously had a sailing that was canceled, call Disney Cruise Line or contact your travel agent because Disney is offering some special discounts if you chose to book this new sailing!
While this is a very exciting development, as the two-night sailing from Canada to Seattle seems like it could be testing to see how Disney might be able to control Guest flow without worrying about port excursions and other disembarkations, Disney Cruise Line has not confirmed details about why this new type of cruise was added.
For Americans and Canadians wishing to go on this cruise, they should find it a relatively easy trip as it is not long at sea and, undoubtedly, Disney Cruise Line will keep health and safety at the forefront of the Guest experience. No word yet on how onboard activities or excursions will be offered. We will have to wait for more details from Disney Cruise Line.
It is great news that Disney has announced this new sailing as it appears to be a “safe bet” as a first step to returning to the sea with Guests. But what will it take to make this sailing happen? Of course, we imagine that social distancing, mask-wearing, and handwashing will be strictly enforced. We also anticipate that extra cleaning measures will also be in place through the ships as they beginning to host Guests again. Disney Cruise Line recently shared a video that highlighted the pandemic-era changes Guests can expect the next time they sail on a Disney Cruise.
