Disney Cruise Line Releases Details In Response To CDC Update
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a Level 4 Travel Notice recommending that all people avoid travel on cruise ships. The complete notice is listed below and is also available by clicking here. Disney Cruise Line has released the following new update regarding future sailings in response to the CDC update:
If a threshold of COVID-19 is detected on board the cruise ship during a voyage, the voyage will be ended immediately and the ship will return to the U.S. port of embarkation, and your subsequent travel, including your return home, may be restricted or delayed.
It’s important to note that Disney Cruise Line has suspended all departures through April and select Disney Magic and Disney Wonder sailings in May. These guidelines would be in place once sailings resume if CDC maintains the same Level 4 status.
We don’t have word yet on what the “threshold” number is for Disney Cruise Line to end the voyage. We will update you with more details as we receive them.
The CDC Level 4 Travel Notice is subject to change by the CDC without notice. Please see below for more details:
- CDC recommends that all people avoid travel on cruise ships, including river cruises, worldwide, because the risk of COVID-19 on cruise ships is very high. It is especially important that people with an increased risk of severe illness avoid travel on cruise ships, including river cruises.
- Cruise passengers are at increased risk of person-to-person spread of infectious diseases, including COVID-19, and outbreaks of COVID-19 have been reported on cruise ships.
- Passengers who decide to go on a cruise should get tested 3-5 days after your trip AND stay home for 7 days after travel. Even if you test negative, stay home for the full 7 days.
- If you don’t get tested, it’s safest to stay home for 10 days after you travel.
