Disney Cruise Line makes changes to avoid Hurricane Dorian

Disney Dream

If you’re planning on sailing on a Disney Cruise Line adventure in the upcoming week, be aware your plans may have to be flexible as the fleet makes adjustments to avoid the effects of Hurricane Dorian, which is currently approaching the Bahamas in the Atlantic.

Yesterday, Disney Cruise Line announced:

  • Disney Dream adventure departing Friday, August 30. This cruise was scheduled for a four night adventure, but has been extended to return to Central Florida’s Port Canaveral on Wednesday September 4. Instead of visiting the Bahamas it will sail to Cozumel, Mexico
  • The Disney Fantasy trip scheduled for Saturday 31st is not expected to require any adjustments
  • The Disney Dream that had been scheduled to depart on Monday September 2nd is now expected to leave on Sept 4th. It will return as planned on September 6th. Because this cruise has been shortened, guests can opt out of the cruise (contact DCL before Sept 1) and reschedule for a future departure. If guest chooses to sail, they can receive a 50% refund and a $250 onboard credit per stateroom

As Hurricane Dorian has slowed down even further overnight and returning to Port Canaveral before September 5th may not be practical, we expect Disney Cruise Line to make further itinerary adjustments over the coming days.

If you’re planning Land & Sea package. Here’s our advice on how to prepare for Hurricane Dorian’s arrival at Walt Disney World.

The Disney Wonder is currently visiting Alaska and the Disney Magic is in Europe. So they will not be impacted by Hurricane Dorian
