Disney Cruise Line is changing their infant policy by increasing the minimum age to sail from 12 weeks to 6 months of age for most itineraries. DCL’s new minimum age restrictions are effective today, July 18, 2014 for all new bookings for sailings after January 1, 2015.
The minimum age for the longer cruises, such as the Transatlantic, Hawai’i and Panama Canal itineraries will increase to 1 year of age. The infant policy change is consistent with the age restrictions of other cruise lines.
Guests with existing reservations to sail in 2015 with a child between the ages of 12 weeks and 1 year will be allowed to sail on their existing reservations. After July 18, 2014, all new bookings for 2015 sailings must comply with the new age limits.
News of the infant policy change is being sent to travel agents who have clients currently sailing with infants in 2015 to inform them of this change and the exception being made for them to sail as planned. Disney Cruise Line’s website still reflects the previous policy, but should change in near future.
