Update: All Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy Cruises Are Canceled Until September 15th

Earlier today, June 19th, on their website, Disney announced that all cruises on the Dream and Fantasy are canceled until September 15th.  These cancellations are complying with the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) announcement that was also made today.  This announcement states that all cruise lines that are a member of CLIA, including Disney Cruise Line, will suspend cruises from ports in the United States until September 15th.

This suspension does not affect the Magic or Wonder, since neither of them would be going on cruises from US ports.  As of now, cruises on the Magic are canceled until October 2nd, and cruises on the Wonder are canceled until September 14th.

With the inclusion of today's announcement, all four Disney ships will be missing over six months of cruises in 2020.  It's really unfortunate that thousands of people's vacations are canceled, but DCL and other cruise lines are doing the right thing.  It's better to be safe than sorry, especially when dealing with a virus that can be deadly.  Initially, I would've laughed if you had told me cruises would be canceled until September, but here we are, and I'm not laughing.  Still, I can't believe we won't see a cruise until then.  It's going to be a slow summer for DCL news.

As with the previous suspensions, these will be extended past September 15th if necessary.  I don't think they'll be lengthened, but it's always possible.  Be sure to check the Disney Cruise Line website for more information and the latest updates.
