With Hurricane Matthew chewing up the seas in the Caribbean and now along the Florida coast, Disney Cruise Line has announced some major, and rare, changes to their upcoming itineraries.  Disney Dream dry dock 2015

As always, safety is the prime and number one concern of those at Disney, so these measures make a lot of sense.  Unfortunately, we are seeing the rare cancellation of a cruise.  Here are the details of all the itinerary changes:

Disney Dream:

  • The October 3 sailing of the Disney Dream is being extended by one day, as Port Canaveral will not be available for the ship’s scheduled arrival on Friday, October 7. The ship is now planning to disembark in Port Canaveral on Saturday, October 8, once the Coast Guard has determined that the port is safe for cruise ship operations. Travel arrangements are being made to assist those on board.
  • The October 7 sailing of the Disney Dream from Port Canaveral is being cancelled. Refunds will automatically be processed back to the original form of payment used for cruise bookings. Guests are invited to call their Travel Agent or  1-866-325-3905 or 407-566-7032 beginning Monday, Oct. 10, to book a future cruise at a discount.

Disney Magic:

  • The October 7 sailing of the Disney Magic from New York is being changed to a Canadian itinerary, with plans to visit Sydney, Nova Scotia; Halifax, Nova Scotia; and Saint John, New Brunswick. Guests who remain on this revised itinerary will receive an onboard credit. Guests who would like to rebook a future sailing at a discount OR cancel their sailing for a full refund are invited to call their Travel Agent or 1-866-325-3905 or 407-566-7032.

Disney Fantasy:

  • The October 8 Disney Fantasy sailing from Port Canaveral to the eastern Caribbean is expected to sail as scheduled. The weather will be continually monitored and adjustments will be made as necessary.

This sailing will include stops in Cozumel, Grand Cayman and Castaway Cay. Guests who remain on the revised itinerary will receive a pro-rated refund equal to the amount of one-night of their cruise fare and an
    onboard credit.
