Disney Cruise Line continues to cancel and delay its sailings in light of the pandemic, which has absolutely ravaged the cruise industry.

Today Guests were informed that the Disney Magic sailings of the first three Bermuda cruises scheduled from New York in the Fall have been cancelled.

Here’s the email that Guests are receiving…

Guest Name: xxxxxx
Reservation #: xxxxxx

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 recently released 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 are cancelling all Disney Magic sailings departing through October 9, 2021.

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 on or before September 30, 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 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

Disney is currently still planning to send the Disney Magic on short voyages in the UK later this summer, known as “Disney Magic at Sea Staycations.” However, the itinerary seems to be in flux.

2020 and 2021 have been absolutely brutal for the cruise industry, with many cruise ships even being sold off or dismantled by their owners.

Thus far, Disney hasn’t announced any plans to curtail the expansion of its fleet of cruise ships, and Disney CEO Bob Chapek assured investors the previously announced new ships would be completed.
