Disney Cruise Line Sailings Likely on Pause Until Fall 2021, Disney Wish Will Sail Summer 2022
One of the most common questions I receive these days is when will cruises start sailing again as it has been one year since they stopped due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During today’s Shareholders Meeting, CEO of The Walt Disney Company gave an update on the current status of Disney Cruise Line operations and when we might be able to start cruising again which will likely be this Fall. He also addressed the current status of the Disney Wish.
While Chapek does not have any exact information on when Disney Cruise Line will start up again, he does think it will be this Fall. He also stated that once cruising does resume, operations will be limited.
“We are anticipating that with some luck and the increase in the number of vaccinations out there and the encouraging signs that we are seeing that maybe by this Fall we might be able to have some limited operations of our cruise ships, but that’s all going to depend on the incidence of the virus and all the vaccination of the general public,” Chapek said. “So, we look forward though when we do open up to use the very same disciplined guidelines we’ve used in our Parks to safely reopen and use those same guidelines on the Disney Cruise Line.”
Also, during today’s Shareholder Meeting, Chapek said that Disney Cruise Line’s Disney Wish is still on scheduled to offer its maiden voyage Summer 2022. It is unknown at this time when there itineraries will be available for booking but we do anticipate all itinearies for Summer 2022 to be announced any day now.
Currently, most Disney Cruise Line cruises are suspended through May 2021 with several other cancelled even further into 2021. Some cruises such as ones to the Bahamas and Caribbean are still available for booking on the official website but with today’s news, I would anticipate them to be cancelled sometime in the near future. However, if you one that you like, I suggest to book it as if Disney Cruise Line cancels it, you would receive 125% Future Cruise Credit to use towards another booking.
