Ahoy, mateys! I’m Heather, and I’ll be bringing you the up and coming on all things Disney Cruise Line. Welcome back again this week. Let’s see what’s new in the DCL world!

What’s New

Welp. Not all news can be good, so let’s just rip this next bandaid off shall we? Cruise Lines International Association suspended cruising for all member lines through October 31, 2020. Disney has cancelled the entire month, plus a few dates in November as well. Here are the latest casualties:

We do need a bit of good to balance it all out! Anyone who has a future cruise credit from a previously cancelled sailing now has until May 31, 2022, to sail on that credit. While the two month extension isn’t much, it’s definitely something! The historical release schedule may be a bit off from what we are used to, but perhaps by September/October of this year we’ll have some more dates to apply that FCC to! It’s also good to remember that placeholders are being extended through March 31, 2022 – so if you have one set to expire, you may want to look into that!

Weekly Specials

With the latest round of cancelled fall sailings, we’ve got quite the reduced specials chart this week. Does this cadaverous pallor betray an aura of foreboding for the fate of the rest of 2020? Consider that the only specials offers left for this year are all on the Dream…could this also indicate that if cruising does make a comeback this year, we’ll only see sailings out of Port Canaveral stopping at Castaway Cay? Things that make you go hmm…

Most every week of the year, Disney Cruise Line releases special offers for Florida Residents and U.S. Military Personnel.  There are also frequently IGT/OGT/VGT rates available for all guests to book.  These offers are extremely limited in availability, and all come with certain restrictions, but the prices are amazing! You can book these online, on the phone, or with your travel agent. These are the current offers available this week:
