It’s a rare occurrence for two of Disney Cruise Line’s cruise ships to be seen together at the same time and even rarer for three of the four ships to show up at the same location, but this week three ships, the Disney Magic, Disney Fantasy, and the Disney Dream, were all docked at Port Canaveral.
The port, sensing a good opportunity for a publicity video, docked them all close together and now we have can all enjoy this marvelous sight.
While it may be a “matter of time” before happy passengers are back on a Disney cruise ship for a magical voyage, we still don’t have an official date for when cruises will resume.
In fact, on a call with investors earlier this week, Disney CEO Bob Chapek said that it was very likely that the Disney Cruise Line would be the last of Disney’s travel businesses to resume operations. Sailings are currently canceled through at least July 2, 2020.
Like Chapek, we believe this is strong demand for Disney’s travel and vacation product and that as soon as it is safe to reopen, Disney will let us know.
We look forward to seeing Captain Mickey Mouse and Captain Minnie Mouse again soon, along with all our friends on board Disney’s beautiful ships.
What’s next for Disney Cruise Line?
Although cruising is currently paused, Disney has a few big projects lined up for the future of Disney Cruise Line. The company has ordered three new ships with the first one, Disney Wish, expected to begin hosting guests in early 2022. There’s also a second private island destination in the Bahamas in the works called Lighthouse Point.
No word from Disney on if these projects will be delayed or cancelled. We know that work on the Disney Wish had already been delayed due to unavailability of some parts required for its LNG power plant. We’re willing to bet Disney will delay these projects as much as they can.
