Hurricane Dorian is currently located in the Caribbean and is projected to continue moving north. Disney Cruise Line is closely monitoring the path and progress of this storm with the safety of their guests and crew members as their foremost concern.
Based on Hurricane Dorian’s current location and projected path, it has been determined that it is safe for the Disney Dream to set sail on Friday as originally scheduled. Once the ship departs Port Canaveral, it will keep a safe distance from the storm.
Depending on its path, there is a possibility that modifications to the itinerary may need to occur, including not being able to return to Port Canaveral on Monday. Weather forecasts will continue to be monitored closely throughout the sailing and will be adjusted as needed.
Guests who do not wish to sail on Friday should contact their Travel Agent or Disney Cruise Line immediately for the best options.
