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

Here I go, here I go, here I go again….

First up, perhaps one of the bigger cancellation bandaids to have to rip off – the heavily anticipated return to the Greek Isles will have wait until 2021. The following sailings on the Disney Magic now cancelled are:

  • June 13, 9-night Mediterranean/Greek Isles
  • June 22, 9-night Mediterranean/Greek Isles
  • July 1, 12-night Mediterranean/Green Isles

Now, this would make the first possible summer European sailing a 5-night Mediterranean from Barcelona, followed by the repositioning to Dover where the Magic would finish out the season with the Northern European/Norwegian/British Isles sailing. But the question remains – since she’s still hanging out off the Port Canaveral coast, will she make the journey west? Will there be a surprise transatlantic that becomes bookable? Or will she stay stateside for the rest of the year? What’s your guess?

Not too surprisingly, the Dream and the Fantasy also saw additional cancellations yesterday, through the middle of June. Here are the latest cancelled dates:

Disney Dream

  • May 18, 4-night Bahamian
  • May 22, 3-night Bahamian
  • May 25, 4-night Bahamian
  • May 29, 3-night Bahamian
  • June 1, 4-night Bahamian
  • June 5, 3-night Bahamian
  • June 8, 4-night Bahamian
  • June 12, 5-night Bahamian
  • June 17, 5-night Bahamian

Disney Fantasy

  • May 23, 7-night Western Caribbean
  • May 30, 7-night Eastern Caribbean
  • June 6, 7-night Western Caribbean
  • June 13, 7-night Eastern Caribbean

Disney continues to offer a full refund, or a 125% Future Cruise Credit to guests on these cancelled sailings. Got a question on the credit? We’ve got answers for you here!

Why not brighten up your time at home by recreating a favorite cruise tradition – stateroom door decorating! You can print out a great pack of decorations to get started, and it’s complete with a stateroom number (1998 to be exact – the year the Magic launched). But don’t let the creativity stop here – how far can you take your decorating skills to create your own stateroom door at home? Maybe a little family competition to see who can create the best door in your house?

And while we are pining for all things DCL…Julia has our mouths watering as she tempts our tummies with the five sweets she’s looking forward to on her next cruise. Cruise calories will count even less once we are back onboard, right?
