    I’m surprised they didn’t announce the cancellation of the remaining 6 EU cruises. But I guess they are trying to spread out the call center volume.

    To be honest I expect also 2021 European cruises to be cancelled and possibly replaced by local itiniraries. Which is a bummer since O was booked on one of the May cruise.
    If the change does occur, I expect announcements around the Autumn as I can’t imagine a later one. But again I could be wrong.

    I think the baltic cruises are different from mediterrean. Way less effected of covid. At least a slight spark of hope. All tough I am not too optimistic either.

      Except for Russia – the main destination for most Baltic cruises. The effect of the disease is increasing there daily.

    My family was booked on the 12-night cruise. It isn’t clear from the email, but we were able to split the cruise credit between two different future sailings. Both are within the 15 month rebooking window.

    I have a party of 10 booked on the Disney Magic Baltic Cruise on 5th August. Disney should offer as a minimum the same 30 day for final payment allowance offered to July Baltic Cruises. As things stand I am expected to pay a large sum next week only to be told shortly afterwards that the Cruise is cancelled.
    Then I have to fight to get the cash back.
    Disney Cruises need to understand that clarity is required now not more drip feeding bad news, we need to know with certainty whether the European programme stands any chance of happening. Most European Countries are only now slightly releasing their Lockdowns restrictions and Russia is not a place to visit right now.

    As a person living in Europe, I think there is no chance of travel this summer. I live there – borders will remain closed for quite some time. It is not even clear if they could be opened again within Schengen space. We cannot even leave our district.
    If you can reschedule you could at least have a good holiday. I hope only to save you time as you might not have all the local information we have here.
    Even without it – the situation is so bad and not representative of the countries to be visited ; it would be a shame, especially if it is an exceptional trip.

    Thanks Anne, you are correct, nobody in Europe expects any country to country travel for many months here in Europe.
    Disney Cruises should decide whether a Cruise will actually happen before they expect a Customer to pay the final payment for a Cruise. Final payment of a Cruise 90 days before a sailing is ok in normal times but not now.
