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!

Cruise News

I’ll give you one guess on what the main news topic is this week. I don’t even need to tell you that it starts with C and ends with -ancellations, do I? Here we go again!

Remember last week when the fate of the Magic’s summer in Europe was in question after the cancellation of the Eastbound Transatlantic? The first repercussions have been announced. The first three Mediterranean cruises of the season have been cancelled. The affected dates are:

  • May 23, 7-night Mediterranean
  • May 30, 7-night Mediterranean
  • June 6, 7-night Mediterranean

Will the European sailings commence with the highly anticipated June 13 return to the Greek Isles? Only time will tell…

And of course, as per the new usual, the same refund or 125% Future Cruise Credit offer applies for those who have had their cruise cancelled by Disney.

With each wave of cancellations, I can’t help but find myself pining more and more to be back onboard any one of these gorgeous ships! And I know I am not the only one. In fact, Tammy has compiled a list of the 10 things she’s already looking forward to once we hear those words “all aboard” once again – does her list resonate with you?

Don’t forget to bookmark our COVID-19 update page for the latest! Wash your hands and stay well!

Thanks for joining me again this week. “Sea” you next time!

    When will cruises resume?
    1. Effective vaccine tested and approved
    2. Ability to administer vaccine and be documented as such to hundreds of millions, if not billions
    3. Then, and only then, will pro sports, cruises, amusement parks, hotels, resorts etc. even begin to re-establish business…
    4….and that assumes they’re not already bankrupt and can re-establish supply chains, ports-of-call, employees…
    5….and that assumes enough people have employment with that much disposable income to afford what will be luxuries for the next decade.
    Let’s get real. The cruise industry already had enough documented problems before COVID-19 to raise valid concerns. I take no joy in sharing this information. I miss it all, too. But it won’t be back any time soon.

    Ha! In a decade it’ll be just in time for the next economic downturn and we won’t have recovered from this one. And if you think a cruise will be a luxury… plane travel is going to be back to the 1970’s where regular Joe’s couldn’t afford to get on one after they all go bankrupt.
