After more than a year without sailing, Disney Cruise Line resumed sails to the Bahamas on the Disney Dream.
Disney Cruise Line updated their vaccination policy for Bahamas sailings, and updated their itineraries to stop only at Castaway Cay. Amid these changes for the Disney Dream, the Disney Wonder will soon resume sailings out of California with updated health and safety requirements, as well as some itinerary adjustments.
Disney has just announced that the Disney Wonder will resume cruises out of San Diego on October 1st, 2021, and to the Panama Canal on November 5th, 2021. 5-night and 7-night itineraries for the Disney Wonder will be modified to 4-nights with the same departure dates and guests will be refunded the difference. Guests who decide to keep their modified reservations will receive a $400 onboard credit and a 25% future discount.
Two Disney Wonder sailings scheduled for September 24th and 26th will be canceled, and guests who paid for these sailings in full will receive a 125% future cruise credit. If they did not pay in full, they will be given a full refund.
Disney will require all guests 12 years and older to be fully vaccinated to board sailings out of California, and guests 11 and under will have to provide a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken anywhere between 3 days and 24 hours before boarding. Furthermore, all guests will be required to take a PCR COVID-19 test at the terminal before boarding. This test will be provided by Inspire Diagnostics and paid for by Disney Cruise Line.
Also, fully vaccinated guests will need to purchase a Disney Cruise Line Port Adventure in order to disembark the ship, including guests with unvaccinated children. For the 14-night sailing to Panama Canal on November 5th, all guests must be fully vaccinated, and anyone 11 years and under will not be permitted to sail. Guests will be able to change their sail date or cancel for a full refund.
Guests who are impacted by these changes should receive an email from Disney Cruise Line with more details. If you booked your cruise through a travel agent, you will need to speak with them. You can contact Disney Cruise Line at (866) 325-6685 or (407) 566-7797.
