Disney Cruise Line Cancels Cruises Through January, 2021

In surprise to no one Disney Cruise Line has gone ahead and cancelled cruises through January, 2021. I fully expect to see more months of cancelation as they have Cruise Travel at Level 4 and they have instituted their three-step plan for cruise lines to follow just to start back up again.

Right now guests are receiving letters. Here’s one posted by the Disney Cruise Line Blog:

Dear EMILY,
All of us at Disney Cruise Line hope you and your family are staying well.

Our team at Disney Cruise Line remains focused on the health and well-being of our Guests and team members. We are carefully reviewing the guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and working toward resuming operations. As we continue to refine our protocols for our eventual return to service, we have decided to cancel all sailings departing through January 2021.

In light of this cancellation, we are offering affected Guests who have paid their reservation in full the choice of a 125% future cruise credit to be used for a future sailing prior to May 31, 2022, or a full refund. The credit has automatically been added to your account. Once you have decided on an alternate sail date, you may contact your travel agent. Your agent may place a reservation on hold for you by applying this credit as a payment option when booking a new reservation online. Guests that have not paid their reservations in full will automatically receive a refund of what they have paid so far.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during these challenging times. We look forward to welcoming you aboard as soon as we can and making magic for you and your loved ones.

Sincerely,

Cast & Crew
Disney Cruise Line

*The Future Cruise Credit (FCC) is equal to 125% of your original voyage fare plus the cost of the Vacation Protection Plan, if applicable. The FCC is only valid for sailings departing prior to May 31, 2022. Your 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 you end up not being able to use the FCC, you will be eligible for a refund up to the amount of your 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.

Again we are seeing a Future Cruise Credit of 125% for guests that already paid in full. You need to use your credit by May 31, 2022 now.  Those that paid in full can instead choose a full refund. If you did not pay in full you will be refunded your money.

Here are the cruises that have been cancelled:
