Disney Cruise Line Addresses Coronavirus Issue
In response to the outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus, Disney Cruise Line has issued emails to travel agents with clients booked on upcoming sailings. Disney Cruise Line highly values the well-being of their guests and crew members and wants to make sure they provide a safe and enjoyable vacation experience.
With that being said, the message states that any guest or crew member who has traveled from or through mainland China in the past 14 days will not be able to board.
The email from Disney Cruise Line…
Due to the novel coronavirus first identified in Wuhan, China, the U.S. State Department has issued a Level 4 Travel Advisory recommending no travel to China. Disney Cruise Line is carefully monitoring the latest information about this situation and is in close contact with local, state, national and international health agencies for information and guidance.
Disney Cruise Line, along with the other members of the Cruise Lines International Association, has further enhanced the screening process for guests and crew members boarding cruise ships. In an abundance of caution and given the unique environment of a cruise ship, guests and crew members who indicate they have traveled from or through mainland China in the past 14 days will not be able to board.
If your clients or a member of their stateroom party have traveled from or through mainland China or have been in direct physical contact (having cared for, lived with, or had direct contact) with someone who has a confirmed or suspected case of novel coronavirus within 14 days prior to the start of your cruise vacation, please contact us at 1-866-325-2112 or 407-566-3510.
Disney Cruise Line employs rigorous sanitation standards and consistently receives among the highest scores on public health inspections. We also have a comprehensive plan that outlines protocols for managing this type of situation and closely follow the guidance of public health officials. For the most up-to-date information and a list of everyday preventive actions you can take to avoid the spread of germs, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website, www.cdc.gov.
We look forward to your clients’ arrival and appreciate your cooperation and understanding regarding the importance of these added measures.
