What Disney Cruises Are Cancelled for 2020?

Disney Cruise released a lot of very helpful information on their official website about upcoming cruises and vacations that have been cancelled.

See the statement below for Disney’s guidance on which trips are cancelled.

On May 29, 2020, the Canadian government extended its decision to not allow cruise ships to dock in Canadian ports through October 31, 2020. As a result, it is necessary for us to cancel Disney Wonder sailings scheduled to embark and/or debark in Vancouver through September 14, 2020. We are also evaluating the Disney Magic sailings scheduled to visit Canadian ports this October, but have not made changes to any itineraries at this time. Once a decision is made, we will reach out to Guests booked on these sailings.

As you can see, according to the website the following information has been released and updated:

  • Disney Magic sailings through October 2, 2020
  • Disney Wonder sailings through September 14, 2020
  • Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy sailings through July 27, 2020
  • Cruises departing from Canada have been cancelled through September 14, 2020
  • All other cruise departures have been canceled through July 27, 2020

So, if you booked a reservation for a Disney Cruise Line vacation out of Canada between now and September 14th, it has now been officially cancelled due to the global situation.

The same goes for any DCL trips previously booked that leave out of anywhere else through July 27th of this year.

Why Are Disney Cruise Line Vacations Cancelled So Far in the Future?

Now, what about the reasoning behind the cancellations happening so far out in the future?

Along those lines, Disney has provided a serious of helpful, informative statements on the cruise line website to help answer questions about their reasoning for the mass cancellations.

I’ve reprinted below, in its entirety, the quote from the DLC updates page:

As we previously shared, with the well-being of our Guests, Crew Members and Cast Members our top priority, and in line with direction from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Disney Cruise Line has suspended all other new departures through July 27, 2020 at this time.

In other words, it simply is not safe, given what we know now about the spread of the illness around the world and the current global situation.

Disney considers the safety and wellbeing of its employees and guests a top priority, as is evidenced by their handling of closing the parks and the slow reopening process.

Of course, Disney wants every experience to be a magical and fun one.

Keeping that in mind, it’s not a real surprise that these cruise trips have been cancelled.

Even so, I do think that they are planning the return of the DLC vacations with as much concern and attention to detail and safety as they have been with the parks. This includes enlisting some Stormtroopers to help keep social distancing in place…

What To Do If Your Disney Cruise Is Cancelled

If your Disney Cruise Line Vacation has been cancelled, you have a couple of options.

We know by now that Disney will never leave anybody hanging. It’s just not in their DNA.

Disney knows that this is an especially difficult situation, as people request time off of work, save up for the vacation, and put a lot of effort, energy, and heart into their family trips.

With that in mind, here’s your options, based on what information Disney has released online:

Guests booked on affected sailings will be offered the choice of a cruise credit to be used for a future sailing or a full refund. These Guests and travel agents will receive an email from Disney Cruise Line outlining details and next steps.

Guests who booked their reservation through a travel agent should contact them directly with any questions. Those who booked directly with Disney Cruise Line and have questions after receiving their email should call us at (866) 325-6685 or (407) 566-7797.
