Longtime Disney Cruise Line fans and passengers cannot wait to set sail on a Disney Cruise once again. Late last year, the company even showed future cruise travelers how the DCL has adapted to the “new norm” as they are eager to welcome passengers aboard.

Although at this time we do not have an exact date of when we will see any of the Disney Cruise Line ships — the Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy, Disney Magic, or Disney Wonder — set sail again, the Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Chapek did suggest they could resume in Fall 2021.

Now, Disney Cruise Line is giving future cruisers “piece of mind” with their new “Dreams Come True on a Disney Cruise” promotion.

The website gives future Disney Cruise Line Guests a full explanation of everything they need to know before setting sail once again, including what experiences can be expected, how their private island, Castaway Cay, will operate, and more:

Additionally, the new webpage maps out everything you need to know about the CDC travel recommendations and cruise ship travel before boarding a cruise ship during this unprecedented time:

Notice to Passengers Regarding Travel Recommendation from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on COVID-19 and Cruise Ship Travel

The CDC has issued a Level 4 Travel Notice recommending that all people avoid travel on cruise ships. The complete notice is available at https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/notices/covid-4/coronavirus-cruise-shipand is subject to change by the CDC without notice. If a threshold of COVID-19 is detected on board the cruise ship during a voyage, the voyage will be ended immediately and the ship will return to the U.S. port of embarkation, and your subsequent travel, including your return home, may be restricted or delayed.

The webpage also provides COVID-19 warnings explaining how Guests will be required to follow all posted instructions when sailing on Disney Cruise Line:

COVID-19 Warning

While we are still evaluating the timing, when we return to sailing we will inform you of enhanced health and safety measures – for you, our other Guests, Cast and Crew Members. You will be required to follow all posted instructions when sailing with Disney Cruise Line.

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and Guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.

By sailing with Disney Cruise Line you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

Help keep each other healthy.

More on Disney Cruise Line

As a result of the ongoing pandemic, Disney Cruise Line, along with the cruising industry as a whole, was forced to suspend sailings in order to comply with the CDC and its “No Sail” order. Though the order was lifted on October 31, 2020, the CDC made it very clear that the cruising industry will need to meet several health and safety requirements in order to earn a “Conditional Sailing Certificate” and allow passengers back on the ships. In addition to these requirements, the CDC has stated that cruise ships are not able to operate voyages longer than 7 nights.

It is more than likely Disney Cruise Line will be implementing similar rules as the ones in place at the Disney Parks around the world, including face coverings to be worn, keeping a safe social distance from others, enhanced hand sanitizing stations located throughout the ships, limited capacity, and more.

It’s safe to say Disney Cruise Line is eager to once again welcome back Guests once they are able to do so safely. In the meantime, it looks like they are gearing up by ensuring their ships are safe and showing viewers what cruising could look like once they make their return, which you can read more about here.
