Disney Cruise Line’s Revised Cancelation Fees Effective October 1, 2014

Disney Cruise Line revised their cruise cancelation fees effective today, October 1, 2014 for new bookings. Cancellation fees for reservations made before 10/1/2014 will be based on the cancellation fees listed on your original cruise confirmation. However, previously booked sailings that are modified will now fall under the revised cancellation fee policy.

The updated policy includes several changes to the cruise cancellation fees for suites and concierge staterooms as well for cruises less than 10 days where embark or debark is a U.S. Port.  The cancelation fee period for suites and concierge staterooms is no longer based on the length of the itinerary.

    Is it just me or is this policy of losing a deposit very un-disney like?? Not even an option to reschedule… BAM! YOU LOSE! Sure puts a damper on booking early. I wonder if trip insurance would cover a lost deposit? I guess if you purchase the any-reason rider.

    Right – it looked like in any case it would be a loss but now that i re-read it it looks like if you still cancel > 90 days (non concierge/suite) you are still okay… (Is that your interpretation, Scott?)
