A number of other cruise lines have announced the suspension of operations or the postponement of the start of their cruise seasons.
Disney Cruise Line
Disney Cruise Line has suspended all new departures beginning Saturday, March 14, through the end of the month, a measure which applies to all four of the line’s cruise ships. The Disney Dream will depart on a three-night cruise from Port Canaveral as scheduled on Friday, March 13, and will return to Port Canaveral on Monday, March 16. The Disney Fantasy and Disney Magic will return to port on Saturday, March 14. The Disney Wonder, which is currently in the midst of a westbound Panama Canal cruise, will continue on its scheduled itinerary, with guests disembarking in San Diego on Friday, March 20.
The cruise line said it will offer affected guests a future cruise credit or a full refund, the details of which will be provided directly to them. Given the higher than normal volume at the line’s call center, Disney is asking affected guests or their travel advisor to wait to contact the cruise line until after receiving an email.
