Disney Cruise Line Offering 125% Credit To Those Who Cancelled April-May Sailings Before Incentives

The Disney Dream cruise ship docked at Castaway Cay.

Many people cancelled their planned Disney Cruise Line cruise before Disney began cancelling and offering the 125% re-booking incentive. Now DCL is offering the same incentive to those that cancelled their cruises prior to the April 10th cancellations.

According to the Disney Cruise Line Blog:

“Disney Cruise Line is sending emails to guests who modified or cancelled select Disney Magic, Disney Dream, and Disney Fantasy sailings prior to Friday’s (April 10, 2020) cancellations offering a future cruise credit or a refund of cancelation fees. For those who moved or cancelled a reservation between January 30 – April 10, 2020 for a Disney Magic, Disney Dream, and Disney Fantasy sailings that was scheduled to depart between April 29 and May 17, 2020.”

Many cancelled or rebooked their cruise ahead of Disney starting the cancellations. This mean they missed out on the 125% credit offer.

Here’s the information:

For guests originally booked these select sailings that was scheduled to depart between April 29 – May 17, 2020, and moved the booking to a new sail date due to concerns about the new coronavirus (COVID-19), Disney Cruise Line would now like to offer an additional future cruise credit equal to 25% of the original voyage fare to use toward the modified sailing. Once the modified reservation is paid in full, any remaining future cruise credit will be applied as to your shipboard account as a non-refundable onboard credit. If circumstances have changed and you’d prefer to cancel the reservation you modified, you may do so for a full refund of the original voyage fare paid.”

If this is something that you qualify for and would be interested in I would get ahold of Disney Cruise Line or your preferred travel agent, and get it rebooked. If you just want to keep your cancellation you will be refunded.

Here’s the fine print they posted:

*The future cruise credit is equal to 25% of your client’s original voyage fare and is only valid for sailings departing within 15 months of your client’s original sailing. The original reservation must be paid in full to be eligible for the FCC. The future cruise credit is applied per person and is non-transferable, non-refundable and has no cash value. Standard prevailing rates apply and the guest is responsible for any balance due after the future cruise credit has been applied. If you are not able to use the future cruise credit, your will be eligible for a refund up to the amount of your original voyage fare. Standard cancellation policies and terms and conditions apply to future sailings. Guests who previously received a future cruise credit are not eligible for an additional future cruise credit.”
