Disney Cruise Line has announced today that the debut of the new Disney Wish is being delayed by six weeks. Supply chain issues and the COVID Omicron outbreak in Germany (where the Wish is under construction) necessitated this change, according to DCL. Originally scheduled to launch to guests on June 9, 2022, the new maiden voyage date is July 14, 2022. This delay impacts 12 sailings that were currently booked with guests.
Guests who were booked on the maiden voyage (originally June 9) and the initial DVC sailing (originally June 14) will automatically be rebooked on new dates: July 14 and July 19, respectively. If guests choose to shift to the new date, they will automatically receive a 50% discount on the fare for that sailing. If guests on these sailings cannot travel on the new dates, they can receive a full no-penalty refund or a 50% discount on any DCL voyage until the end of 2023.
Guests on the remaining 10 impacted sailings of the Wish (June 17, 20, 24, 27 and July 1, 4, 8, 11, and 15) will have their booking cancelled. These guests will have the option to receive a full refund or to receive 50% off on any DCL sailing through December 31, 2023.
Sales on the Disney Wish are now paused until Tuesday, February 8. If you’ve booked a summer 2022 Wish sailing with a Touring Plans travel agent, expect to hear from them soon.
The letter below was sent this afternoon to guests booked on the maiden voyage.
