Disney Cruise Line Cancels Cruises Through September

In light of a U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) no-sail order, Disney Cruise Line has announced that it will cancel all cruises through September 2020.

The announcement comes as a bit of a formality as the CDC order effectively prevented the cruise line from calling on the United States during any international cruise voyages. Previously, the Cruise Line Industry Association announced that its members would not sail until at least September 15. But some lines, such as Carnival Cruise Line, had already announced that they would not sail until at least October.

TravelPulse.com reports that Disney is offering affected travelers the option of receiving a 125% cruise credit for a future cruise (until March 2022) or a full refund of their ticket price. 

The cruise lines have been effectively grounded since March when the World Health Organization delcared the coronavirurus pandemic. Some smaller cruise companies have attempted to return to the seas, with varying degrees of success.
