If those guests moved to a new sail date, Disney Cruise Line will give them an onboard credit of 25% of their original fare that will be applied to their shipboard account once their modified reservation is paid in full. This offer is only valid on sailings that take place within 15 months of their original cruise.

Guests that had not yet rebooked before the recent cancellations have been offered a 125% future cruise credit that is valid for 15 months from their original sail date.


UPDATE - March 30, 2020 11:33am:  Disney Cruise Line is suspending all new departures through April 28, 2020.

Disney Cruise Line is offering clients with cruises already booked during this timeframe the choice of a 125% future cruise credit to be used for a future sailing within 15 months of their original sail date, or a full refund. The credit will be automatically applied to their account at the start of business on Tuesday, March 31, 2020.

*The future cruise credit is equal to 125% of the original voyage fare and is only valid for sailings departing within 15 months of the original sailing. The future cruise credit is applied per person and is non-transferable, non-refundable and has no cash value. Standard prevailing rates apply and guests are responsible for any balance due after the future cruise credit has been applied.
