This story comes from  MickeyBlog.

They say that there haven’t been any announcements from Disney about upcoming cruises yet but “..the Canadian Government is taking measures to curb the spread of the Coronavirus which includes suspending cruise arrivals and departures out of the country through July.”

How will this be a problem for Disney Cruise Line?

Disney has cruises from Vancouver this time of year:

“Being that this is a popular time for Disney Cruise Line’s Alaskan sailings out of Vancouver, this could have a massive impact on those planning on heading North with Disney Cruise Line in Late Spring/Early Summer. ”

If you have a cruise planned for this time period that involves Canadian closures, you can likely more your dates. Disney does offer Canadian cruises later in the year and early 2021.

Cruise ship travel isn’t the only changes for Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also announced the following travel information:

  • International flights will only be permitted to land at a smaller number of airports. Those locations have not yet been announced.
  • Boats and cruise ships carrying more than 500 people will be banned from docking at Canadian ports until July.
  • All travellers arriving in Canada from international points are being asked to consider self-isolating for 14 days as a precaution. People arriving from Hubei, China, Iran and Italy already have been asked to self-isolate.
  • Enhanced screening measures at airports as well as marine, land and rail points of entry.

The airports that will be permitted to take inbound flights have not been identified, and Transport Minister Marc Garneau said discussions on that measure are underway.

I just want to give you a heads up if any of this is going to effect you or your family. That way you can call and get it adjusted.
