NEWS: Disney Cruise Line Will Resume Longer-Length Sailings This Fall

It’s been a long and winding road for the cruise line industry to resume sailings, following a series of emergency declarations, travel advisories, and health mandates. These resulted in the cancelations of itineraries and the departure of modified sailings in recent months.

Back in August, The Bahamas declared Emergency Powers that halted cruise lines from entering a port unless everyone ages 12 and older were fully vaccinated. At the time, the Emergency Powers would be in effect until November 1st, and Disney had mentioned that initial sailings would only stop at Castaway Cay, their private island, and that they hoped to resume longer sailings in October.

In addition, Disney Cruise Line has announced that between now and October 28th, some previously scheduled sailings have been canceled.
