Update: All Disney Cruises are Canceled Until the End of May 2021, and All Cruises on the Magic are Canceled Until August 10th

Yesterday, February 24th, on their website, Disney announced that all cruises are canceled through May 2021.  Also, all cruises on the Magic are canceled until August 10th.  The Magic had so many more cruises canceled because it would've been in Europe, where there are many countries it visits.  Some of these countries may have closed themselves off from cruise ships, like what Canada did, and the countries it would be able to visit would all likely have different COVID-19 restrictions in place.  Rerouting cruises to avoid countries that are closed would have been much harder than just canceling most of the summer's European cruises, so Disney made the best choice here.  

Cruises on the Fantasy will resume on June 2nd, cruises on the Dream will resume on June 4th, cruises on the Wonder will resume on June 7th, and cruises on the Magic won't resume until August 18th.  

This announcement mentioned the Wonder's Alaskan cruises.  Since they're currently impossible as a result of Canada's closure, Disney is currently looking at alternative options.  So as of now, the Alaskan cruises aren't canceled.  If Disney doesn't cancel the Alaskan cruises at a later point in time, then they'll be changed, possibly into more Baja cruises from San Diego.  I went into more detail about this in a previous post, I suggest reading it if you haven't already.

All of the people affected by this suspension will either receive a full refund or a 125% future cruise credit (they can only get this if they paid their cruise in full).  The deadline to use the future cruise credit was recently extended until September 30th, 2022, so people with it will have the summer 2022 cruises to use it on, once those cruises get announced.  This suspension may get extended if needed, so check the Disney Cruise Line website for the latest information.
