The Maiden Voyage of The Disney Cruise Line’s brand new ship The Disney Wish has been delayed.

The Walt Disney Company has just announced that the initial sailing of The Disney Wish, the first of three brand new ships to be added to their fleet has been delayed.

The maiden voyage was originally scheduled to set sail on June 9 from Port Canaveral. That sailing has been delayed until July 14.

The six-week dalay means the first twelve sailings of the ship have been canceled. Disney Cruise Line is working with customers now to either rebook or refund deposits. Disney is well known for their exellent customer service with these types of issues.


For guests impacted Disney requests patience as phone lines are busy and cast members are doing their best to handle the situation in a timely manner and to give each guest the attention and time they need.

Disney is offering impacted guests a 50% discount on a future cruise departing by December 31, 2023.

“We know how much our guests are looking forward to sailing on the Disney Wish, and we understand the disappointment and inconvenience this will cause,” said cruise line President Thomas Mazloum in a press release. “We treasure the relationship we have with those who sail and make memories with us, and we will work closely with those affected to welcome them aboard in the future.”

The delay is due to COVID-19. The latest delay falls partly on how the omicron variant hit the shipyard in the last couple of months during what the cruise line stated was a “critical point in the production process.”
