Disney Cruise Line is just one of several which has been affected by the severe Hurricane Matthew which is causing havoc across the cruise industry.

Disney Dream

The Disney Dreams October 3 sailing has been adjusted mainly due to the closure of Port Canaveral. The vessel was scheduled to arrive back at the port on Friday, October 7 ready for its 4-day Bahamas sailing. Instead the ship will arrive back at Port Canaveral on Saturday, October 8 and the cruise line is in contact with the port authorities and Coast Guard for the latest. Unfortunetely the cruise departing on October 7 has been cancelled.

Disney Fantasy

Thankfully the scheduled October 8 departure from Port Canaveral is set to go ahead as normal but guests are advised to check for the latest updates.

Disney Magic

The ships 8-day Bahamas cruise out of New York has been revised as the ship would have to sail through the Hurricane to get to its destination. The ship will be sailing a Canadian itinerary instead calling at Sydney, Nova Scotia; Halifax, Nova Scotia; and Saint John, New Brunswick.

Disney Cruise Line is monitoring the Hurricane closely just like most other cruise lines. There could be further delays and itinerary changes in the coming days.
