Disney Cruise Line Extends Suspension of All Departures through at least October 31, 2020
In alignment with the announcement made on August 5, 2020 by Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) regarding the voluntary extension of suspended passenger operations from U.S. ports, Disney Cruise Line is cancelling sailings through at least October 31, 2020.
Guests booked on affected sailings who have paid their reservation in full will be offered the choice of a cruise credit to be used for a future sailing or a full refund. Guests who have not paid their reservations in full will automatically receive a refund of what they have paid so far. 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.

2020 has been the worst year for the global cruise industry EVER.
There’s nothing to compare this to except maybe WWII when leisure cruising was too dangerous (too many torpedoes in the water!) and most cruise ships were turned into military transport ships or docked.
The entire global cruise ship industry literally has $0 income right now.
The industry has been in free fall since March with no bottom in sight.
This is the 4th extension of the CDC’s No Sail Order since March 2020.
We don’t expect cruise ships to sail again full of passengers until sometime in Spring 2021.
We’ve written two books about our time working – and playing – as Disney Cast Members at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
