Disney Cruise Line has announced a further extension on cruises out of Canada due to the extended ban on cruise ships.
Disney Extends Suspension of Operations From Canada
The cruise line has announced that departures out of Canada will be cancelled through September 14, 2020. This is due to an extended ban on cruise ships with a capacity of over 100 in Canada through October 31, 2020.
With the ban in Canada, it has impacted Disney Wonder sailings out of Vancouver in British Columbia and the cruise line is evaluating the Disney Magic sailings scheduled to visit Canadian ports this October. Disney will be contacting guests if their specific cruise will be impacted.
Disney Cruise Line is still keeping with its current suspension of operations through July 27 for other regions outside of Canada including the United States. Disney ships will begin to resume cruises from July 28 but of course, this could change as the situation develops.
Guests on the affected sailings will be provided a cruise credit which can be used on a future cruise. There is also the option for a full refund if they no longer choose to go ahead with a cruise vacation. Disney is providing further details of the compensation on offer via emails.

The focus is very much on the cruise line returning to service and Disney is working with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control on introducing new measures to keep passengers and crew members safe. No doubt we’ll hear further details on health measures as vessels get closer to resuming cruises.
This news comes as many cruise lines have now cancelled more cruises due to the Canada ban including Princess Cruises and Royal Caribbean. You can view the full list of when cruises will resume again right here.
