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!
You know the saying, don’t put all your eggs in one basket? More like don’t put all your cruise hopes in one basket. The island of Grand Cayman has made the decision to suspend all cruise tourism through December 31, 2020. There are four remaining sailings in 2020 that are currently scheduled to visit the port of Grand Cayman; nothing official has been announced by Disney at this time regarding an alternate for that day in the itinerary.
Concierge was due for a stateroom update on the Disney Magic, as 12 staterooms that are currently Category 4A (Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah) were to become Category V (Concierge Family Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah). Though the Magic is on an extended vacay, this enhancement has been postponed, most likely due to said unforeseen extended vacay. If you were booked to sail in one of these particular stateroom numbers, you’ll be contacted by DCL to make alternate arrangements.
Travel insurance can be a touchy subject – you get people that will not travel without it, and just as many that scoff at the idea. Ah, the blessing of the freedom to choose! Anyway, Erin dove into some of the requirements certain countries are already requiring for visitation as far as insurance and COVID-19 testing is concerned. For those that have traditionally declined insurance, it could very well become a key player in the ability to travel, not to mention a line item in travel budget planning!
So this could be interesting….all the 2020 offers that were available last week? Gone. Did y’all just get some really great deals, like, all of them? Or is there something else simmering here…..
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:
