Disney Cruise Line sailings have been suspended for over a year now due to the ongoing global health crisis.
But, recent updates to CDC guidelines for the cruise industry have led many cruise companies to begin seeking approval for the mandatory test voyage. And, it seems that Disney will be setting sail once again this month for theirs!
According to FOX 35, the Disney Cruise Line will be completing a 2-night test voyage from Port Canaveral on June 29th with volunteer passengers. A Disney representative confirmed this today saying “We have reached an important next step toward our gradual and responsible resumption of service.”
Disney Cruise Line joins other cruise companies that recently received approval to begin test trips from the CDC with Carnival Cruise Line testing from Port Miami, Port Canaveral, and Port Galveston and Royal Caribbean doing a test voyage from Port Miami on June 20th to 22nd.
Cruise lines sailing out of Florida are not allowed to ask for proof of vaccination from guests, as Governor Ron DeSantis has banned the use of vaccine passports throughout the state. So, all of the cruises sailing from Florida will have to solicit volunteer passengers and sail with at least 10% capacity over two to seven days according to CDC guidelines.
Disney has not released information on how they will be choosing volunteers, but we will continue to keep an eye out for updates! And, in the meantime, stay tuned for the latest Disney news!
