What Ports Might Be Open When Disney Cruise Line Sails Again

UPDATE: See new information on Bahamas below.


Disney Cruise Line has cancelled sailings through at least October 31st, but even then it’s unclear what countries and ports will actually allow ships to dock when Disney returns to the high seas.

We’ve researched the destinations that DCL has scheduled for November and December, just to see what information we could find. Keep in mind that things change quickly, so we will try to keep this list as up-to-date and accurate as possible.

  • Castaway Cay – while operated by Disney, the island is officially part of the Bahamas which hasn’t reopened to ships
  • Costa Maya, Mexico – working to adapt their facilities, but no other updates available (source)
