Almost a month ago, on March 13th, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a 30 day “no sail” order for cruise ships.
Now that order has been extended an additional 100 days.
The new order extension will stay in place unless the COVID-19 pandemic is determined to no longer be a “public health emergency,” is rescinded or modified by the CDC, or 100 days from the filing in the Federal Register.
Disney has cancelled the following departures through May 17th
- 7-Night Eastern Caribbean from Port Canaveral 5/2
- 7-Night Western Caribbean from Port Canaveral 5/9
- 7-Night Eastern Caribbean from Port Canaveral 5/16
- 3-Night Bahamas from Port Canaveral 5/1
- 4-Night Bahamas from Port Canaveral 5/4
- 3-Night Bahamas from Port Canaveral 5/8
- 4-Night Bahamas from Port Canaveral 5/11
- 3-Night Bahamas from Port Canaveral 5/15
- 4-Night Bahamas from Miami 4/30
- 4-Night Bahamas from Miami 5/4
- 3-Night Bahamas from Miami 5/8
- 12-Night Transatlantic from Miami to Barcelona 5/11
Like they did before, guests are being given two options. Either a 125% future cruise credit to be used for a future sailing within 15 months of the original sail date, or a full refund.
I expect more sailings to be cancelled into July and possibly further out. Stay tuned and we will keep you posted.
