Earlier today, November 3rd, on their website, Disney announced that all remaining cruises in 2020 are now canceled. On the Magic, cruises will resume on January 4th, 2021. On the Wonder, they'll resume on January 5th. On the Dream, they'll resume on January 4th. Finally, on the Fantasy, cruises will resume on January 2nd.
Like the last suspension, Disney says that this extension is to give them more time to work on their safety protocols and measures for when cruises resume. Until the protocols have been completed, I'm not expecting to hear anything about them.
Also, with this announcement, the small possibility of my family and I going on the Fantasy in January just got even smaller. If Disney makes another announcement of cancelations, it'll likely include most of the month, including our cruise.
This suspension means that there won't be any Very Merrytime cruises in 2020. This also likely means that they won't build their huge gingerbread houses, since no guests will be around to see and smell them. Maybe they will build them and the Disney Parks YouTube channel will post a video about them. This seems unlikely, because each house takes many hours of planning, baking, building and decorating. All of the bakers' hard work would go mostly unnoticed, which isn't fair to them.
Like always, all of the people affected by this new suspension will have the choice of receiving a full refund or a 125% cruise credit (as long as they've paid the cruise in full). Of course, be sure to check the Disney Cruise Line website for more information and the latest updates.
