Great news for everyone excited about cruises restarting: A Disney Cruise Line simulation cruise has been scheduled for June 29, 2021 on Disney Dream. The other side of the announcement is a little less magical: more cancellations on Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy, Disney Wonder, and Disney Magic.
Announcement: Disney Cruise Line simulation cruise and more cancellations
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has approved our application to conduct a simulation cruise aboard the Disney Dream on June 29. This is an important next step toward our gradual and responsible resumption of service in U.S. waters. But we still have work to do, including finalizing our new health and safety protocols, bring crew back onboard and preparing our ships to welcome Guest again. Because of this, it is necessary for us to cancel the following sailings: Disney Dream through 8/6/21; Disney Fantasy through 8/28/21; Disney Wonder through 9/19/21; and Disney Magic (in the US) through 11/4/21.Disney Cruise Line
Today’s announcement still leaves guests anxious to get on a Disney Cruise Line sailing with more questions than answers. Will guests be invited to take part in the simulated sailing or will that be reserved for employees? What will the vaccination requirements be? At the moment the answers to these questions aren’t clear.
In the meantime, guests booked on any of the canceled Disney Cruise Line sailings have some options:
Guests who have paid their reservation in full have the choice of:
- A 125% future cruise credit
- The Future Cruise Credit (FCC) is equal to 125% of original voyage fare plus the cost of the Vacation Protection Plan, if applicable.
- The FCC is only valid for sailings departing on or before September 30, 2022. Select Disney Wish block-out dates apply.
- Original reservation must be paid in full to be eligible for the FCC.
- The FCC is applied per person and is non-transferable, non-refundable and has no cash value.
- Standard prevailing rates apply and Guests are responsible for any balance due after the FCC has been applied.
- If the guest is not able to use the FCC, they will be eligible for a refund up to the amount of original voyage fare plus the cost of the Vacation Protection Plan, if applicable.
- Standard cancellation policies and terms and conditions apply to future sailings.
- Guests who previously received a FCC are not eligible for an additional FCC.
- The credit is automatically added to the Guest’s account and can be applied as a payment option when booking a new reservation.
Guests that have not paid their reservations in full will automatically receive a refund of what they have paid so far.
