Update: All Disney Cruises Are Canceled Until March 31st

Yesterday, January 12th, on their website, Disney announced that all cruises are canceled until March 31st.  Cruises will resume on April 2nd on the Wonder and Dream, and they'll resume on April 3rd on the Magic and Fantasy.

Like the last four suspensions (not counting the one that canceled some cruises longer than seven nights), this group of cruises was canceled partially because Disney is still refining their protocols for cruising in a world with COVID-19.  Also, in March, I don't think the world will be ready for resuming cruises.  I think they'll resume at some point this year, but I don't know when.  Summer would be nice, but is it even a possibility?  We'll see what happens.

The first pandemic-related suspension canceled cruises in March 2020.  So, this announcement means that in March 2021, there will have been no cruises for an entire year.  Not only has the cruise suspension been bad for Disney and other cruise lines, it's disappointed so many people who were looking forward to going on a cruise.

Although that's unfortunate, at least people affected by the suspension can choose to receive either a full refund or a 125% cruise credit, as long as they've paid the full price of their cruise already.  If you'd like to learn more about this suspension, be sure to visit the Disney Cruise Line website.
