Disney Cruise Line evaluating impact of Canada cruise port closure due to Coronavirus
Disney Cruise Line is in the process of figuring out the next steps for its Alaska cruise season due to the recent closure of Canadian cruise ports through July 1 due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Disney Cruise Line posted an update on its website indicating that the Disney Wonder's sailings are directly impacted by this change, since she was scheduled to be homeported from Vancouver beginning April 29.
In the meantime, Disney is currently evaluating various options and have not made changes to any itineraries.
Here is the full statement from Disney:
On Friday, March 13, 2020, the Canadian government announced they will not allow any ship with more than 500 passengers to dock in any Canadian port from now until July 1, at the earliest. The Disney Wonder has sailings that are scheduled to embark and/or debark in Vancouver beginning April 29. We are currently evaluating various options and have not made changes to any itineraries. Once a decision is made, we will reach out to Guests booked on these sailings. Given the higher than normal call volume at our Call Center, we ask that Guests and travel agents wait to contact us until after they receive an email from us. As a reminder, Guests who booked their reservation through a travel agent should contact them directly to make any modifications.
The spread of COVID-19 compelled the Canadian government to close all of its cruise ports from April 2 - July 1 to cruise ships that can accommodate at least 500 people, including crew and guests.
