As we reported earlier this week, many cruise lines have started canceling cruises through April and into May.
Now, we are learning that Disney Cruise Line has canceled all sailings for all 4 of their ships through the following dates.
- Disney Wonder Cruises cancelled through May 12, 2021
- Disney Magic Cruises cancelled through May 6, 2021
- Disney Dream Cruises cancelled through April 30, 2021
- Disney Fantasy Cruises cancelled through April 24, 2021
In light of this cancellation, Disney Cruise Line is offering Guests who have paid their reservation in full the choice of a 125% future cruise credit to be used for a future sailing, or a full refund. The credit will be automatically added to their account. Guests that have not paid their reservations in full will automatically receive a refund of what they have paid so far.
Cruise Lines under the Cruise Line Internation Association (CLIA), which Disney Cruise Line is a part of, have been operating under umbrella closures but the organization has allowed most cruises to cancel on their own accord.
With looming uncertainty regarding the cruise industry and when cruise lines can safely resume operations other cruise lines such as Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd., has announced cancelation of all scheduled sailings through April 30, 2020.
Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd., operates Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises brands.
The company along with the rest of the cruise industry continues to work through its return to service plan. This plan outlines how they will meet the requirements of the Framework for Conditional Sailing Order issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”).
NCL’s cancellations now match Royal Caribbean and Carnival Cruise Lines who have now all canceled through April. We expect additional cruise lines to follow suit.
Unofficially, we don’t see cruising returning until vaccinations reach the majority. We also expect most cruise lines will require them in order to board.
