Disney Cruise Line Modifies Cancellation and Final Payment Policies

Disney Cruise Line has announced that they’ve temporarily modified their cancellation and final payment policies.

For sailings through May 31, 2021, they are temporarily extending the final payment until 60 days prior to sailing for guests booked in unrestricted stateroom categories. This means that guests who have not yet reached their final payment due date can wait until up to 60 days prior to sailing to pay for their cruise vacation. Onboard cruise activities can be scheduled within your Castaway Club booking window once final payment is received.

In addition, DCL is temporarily relaxing their cruise cancellation fee schedule for sailings through May 31, 2021, as described below.
