The Disney Wonder is Coming Home to Florida
The Disney Wonder is sailing home to Port Canaveral in Florida…
Firstly, need some good news? Here’s the story: The Disney Wonder is sailing home.
The Disney Wonder is sailing to Port Canaveral fresh off a drydock in France and a technical stop for fuel and provisions in Funchal on Wednesday, according to a statement from Portos da Madeira (Ports of Madeira).
The ship made its inaugural call to Funchal, although it had no passengers on board and just 205 crew, according to local reports.
No crew came off the ship, which took on supplies and fuel for its trans-Atlantic crossing.
Consequently, can we smell a test cruise? Maybe. Cruise Industry News added:
The Wonder is next scheduled to sail on Jan. 6. on a six-night Western Caribbean cruise from Galveston, Texas, according to the Disney Cruise Line website, with two days at sea, and calls at Grand Cayman and Cozumel plus another day at sea en route back to Texas.
Unfortunately, if there is a test cruise, it won’t be “real” anytime, soon.
Disney Cruise Line Extends Suspension of All Departures Through December 31, 2020
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 guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and working together with industry partners on a path to resuming operations.
As we continue to refine our protocols for our eventual return to service, we have decided to cancel all sailings through December 2020. Sailings are cancelled on board the Disney Fantasy through December 26; Disney Wonder and Disney Magic through December 30; and the Disney Dream through December 31.
Meanwhile, Disney added:
While we are still evaluating the timing, when we return to sailing we will inform you of enhanced health and safety measures—for you, our other Guests, Cast and Crew Members. You will be required to follow all posted instructions while sailing with Disney Cruise Line.
