Yeah. I watched the earlier videos they released and it seems the line was doing everything possible. Two tests prior. All of this extra cleaning equipment. Health monitoring during the voyage, etc. But when they crossed the Atlantic and picked up new passengers in Barbados, and well, it only took 1. And towards the end of the video it seems these guys realize that...It's interesting to watch this vlog and see how they are surprised there could be people with covid on the ship. To me it seems inevitable given that it is out of control in so many places right now.

Disney Cruise Line Extends Suspension of All Departures Through January 31, 2021
Our team at Disney Cruise Line remains focused on the health and well-being of our Guests and team members. We continue to carefully review the guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and are working toward resuming operations.
As we continue to refine our protocols for our eventual return to service, we have decided to cancel all sailings departing through January 2021. Sailings are cancelled on board the Disney Magic, Disney Wonder and Disney Dream through February 1 and the Disney Fantasy through February 6.
Guests booked on affected sailings who have paid their reservation in full will be offered the choice of a cruise credit to be used for a future sailing or a full refund. Guests who have not paid their reservations in full will automatically receive a refund of what they have paid so far. Affected Guests and travel agents will receive an email from Disney Cruise Line outlining details and next steps.
Guests who booked their reservation through a travel agent should contact them directly with any questions. Those who booked directly with Disney Cruise Line and have questions after receiving their email should call (866) 325-6685 or (407) 566-7797."
I am so sorry for your loss....My parents have a cruise booked in April (deposit only paid so far) and my dad passed away on Christmas Eve. Mom wants to cancel for now and re-book again...someday. Should I call DCL or just wait for the inevitable April sailings to get cancelled? Do they automagially get cancelled?
