I just got a bunch of client notifications through.
The flu pandemic occurred after the Titanic sank. If there were luxury cruises before and after that, the same will be the case with this.To me, cruising in these days of COVID is scary. Could it still happen that an “infected” ship is disallowed to dock at a given port, having to go to another port or just sit in the water in quarantine etc?
Will cruising ever go back to what it was like pre COVID? I hope so but I think not.
Good point. And let’s look on the bright side, in general all sanitary process and procedures will be heightened as a result protecting from COVID and should be less ship borne illnesses of all kinds as a result.The flu pandemic occurred after the Titanic sank.

I did the same thing for last December. I was still hoping to cruise but then devised a backup plan. Obviously that backup plan had to be used.We are scheduled to cruise in July. Originally, it was the 9-day, then they canceled that and offered one 3-day followed by a 6-day, so we signed up for those. I'm remaining optimistic, but I am 90% sure they will be canceled.
Because I am a super Type-A planner, my anxiety level was a tad high with all of this uncertainty. I did not want to admit this cruise/disney trip was not happening, but the ostrich approach was not making me feel very good. I finally told my husband that I needed to come up with a concrete and equally desirable plan B so that, if and when they cancel, we are not left high and dry on the vacation-front and I did not feel too bummed. So, now I have my "Best Case Scenario": go to WDW for a few days followed by the 2 cruises, and also my back up plan if the cruises are canceled. Now, no matter what, I like my options, and my anxiety level has deceased tremendously.
Our team at Disney Cruise Line remains focused on the health and well-being of our Guests and team members. We are carefully reviewing the recently released guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and working toward resuming operations. As we continue to refine our protocols for our eventual return to service, we are cancelling all Disney Fantasy sailings departing through June 2021.
