All sailings on the Disney Wonder are cancelled through the end of June

Apr 06, 2020 in "The Walt Disney Company"

The Disney Cruise Line has cancelled all Disney Wonder sailings through the end of June 2020.

The Canadian government has announced that it will not allow any ship with more than 500 passengers to dock in any Canadian port until July 1, at the earliest. Given the sailing on the Disney Wonder is scheduled to embark and/or debark in Vancouver and Disney Cruise Line has not been able to secure an alternate homeport, it is necessary to cancel the sailing.

Disney Cruise Line is offering the choice of a 125% future cruise credit to be used for a future sailing within 15 months of their original sail date, or a full refund

The following sailings on the Disney Wonder will be cancelled:

  • 9-Night Hawaiian Cruise 4/29
  • 10-Night Hawaiian Cruise 5/8
  • 7-Night Alaska Cruise 5/18
  • 7-Night Alaska Cruise 5/25
  • 7-Night Alaska Cruise 6/1
  • 7-Night Alaska Cruise 6/8
  • 7-Night Alaska Cruise 6/15
  • 7-Night Alaska Cruise 6/22
  • 7-Night Alaska Cruise 6/29

Wonder looks like it's headed to Castaway Cay. Fantasy is on a more Northerly course so could be headed directly back.

At this time the Wonder and Fantasy are headed back to the US to Port Caniveral according to cruise mapper. Wonder location: https://www.cruisemapper.com/?imo=9126819 Fantasy location: https://www.cruisemapper.com/?imo=9445590

This coming on the heels of an travel advisory from the CDC. https://www.cnn.com/travel/article/cruise-ship-cdc-warning/index.html

Example of how pre cruise testing is not foolproof: https://apple.news/ATEy0gDhEQI-oyCPucirx7Q

So the government of Barbados forced all passengers to fly home. No quarantine on the island. No social distancing at the airport or getting on the flight. Packed flight back to the UK. Edit: those who tested positive either had to stay on the island to quarantine or book a private plane home.

Yeah. I watched the earlier videos they released and it seems the line was doing everything possible. Two tests prior. All of this extra cleaning equipment. Health monitoring during the voyage, etc. But when they crossed the Atlantic and picked up new passengers in Barbados, and well, it only took 1. And towards the end of the video it seems these guys realize that... In fairness, MSC has been cruising Europe on very specific cruises and by all accounts have had no issues. Although I believe they have cut back operations a bit just recently. Tricky situation...

It's interesting to watch this vlog and see how they are surprised there could be people with covid on the ship. To me it seems inevitable given that it is out of control in so many places right now.

I’m usually guilty of snark...but that really isn’t the undertone here. My point is that cruises are simply paddling upstream (pun intended) in the current global health climate. Two months ago it looked possible...now it’s looking worse by the day. I get that they want to sail. Especially carnival, Rccl, etc there are only Cruise companies...but that are going to have bigger logistical problems as these numbers rise...and travelers are easily scared off... ...And what was the other thing???.... Hmm...right: The “hoax” claims have been irrefutably proven to be a HOAX!!!😡

I'm not sure why there's so much snark on this topic. I was simply replying to the poster who said he was concerned that services onboard a simulated sailing would suck. The person who was actually on that cruise said that the services didn't suck, and that it was pretty normal prior to the positive test.

You mean “normal” except for being canceled/diverted due to covid?
