Disney Cruise Line has confirmed that another ship, the Disney Wonder, will be returning to sea. The Disney Wonder officially resumes sailing on October 1, 2021, less than one month from now.
Here’s the latest Disney Cruise Line news pertaining to the Disney Wonder, specifically when it comes to the Disney Cruise vaccine requirement.
Disney has officially confirmed that the vaccine requirements recently announced for Disney Cruise Line passengers will remain in place and will be required for all Guests (ages 12 and older) sailing onboard the Disney Wonder.
This means that if you have an upcoming Disney Cruise planned, all members of your party who are 12 years old and up will need to have gotten the COVID-19 vaccine. Disney has released all of the details today, September 2, and we have included the most recent updates below.
In order to sail, Guests 12 years of age and older must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, as defined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Guests 11 years of age and younger are not required to be vaccinated, but must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result (paid for by the Guest) taken between 3 days and 24 hours prior to the date you set sail. The test should be a rapid PCR test or lab-based PCR test. Rapid antigen tests are not accepted. All Guests, regardless of age and vaccination status, are also required to take a COVID-19 test administered by Inspire Diagnostics at the terminal before boarding.
Fully vaccinated Guests who wish to disembark the ship while in a port of call can do so without the need to purchase a Disney Cruise Line Port Adventure. Guests who are vaccinated and wish to disembark the ship with unvaccinated children will need to purchase a Disney Cruise Line Port Adventure. All Guests are required to adhere to local laws, regulations and protocols, including those related to health and safety, in place at the destination.
These vaccine requirements are consistent with Disney’s recent announcements. Vaccine requirements for all Guests ages 12 and older were announced for Disney Cruise Line sailings to The Bahamas, and vaccine requirements and COVID-19 testing will be in place for sailings onboard the Disney Wonder, as well.
The Disney Wonder’s first cruises will sail out of San Diego, California, and stop in Ensenada, Mexico, and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, depending on whether it is a three-night or four-night sailing. In November, the ship will also embark on a 14-day voyage through the Panama Canal to Galveston, Texas.
If you are taking a Disney Cruise Line vacation anytime soon, it is important to be up-to-date on all of the ptorocols currently in place. You can read the latest health and safety information for Disney Cruise Line on the official website here.
