Today, Disney Cruise Line informed guests who had a cruise cancelled due to the pandemic and received a future cruise credit that they are extending the use of the future cruise credit from sailings commencing prior to May 31, 2022 to sailings that depart by September 30, 2022.
The fine print mentions the Disney Wish – “Select Disney Wish block-out dates apply“. It is anticipated the Disney Wish will begin sailing in the summer of 2022. With the launch of the new ship, I suspect the select block-out dates for the Disney Wish will be most, if not all of the summer dates. Maybe, some dates towards the end of the extension may become available, but I am not going to count of it.
The following email was sent out to guests.
All of us at Disney Cruise Line hope you and your family are staying well. We are reaching out with important information about the cruise credit you were previously provided.
When your sailing was cancelled due to the pandemic, you were offered the choice of either a future cruise credit* equal to 125% of your original voyage fare or a full refund. We are now extending the use of your future cruise credit from sailings commencing prior to May 31, 2022 to sailings that depart by September 30, 2022.
Your credit has been automatically updated. If you have not done so already, your travel agent may place a reservation on hold by applying it as a payment option when booking a new reservation. Once your modified reservation is paid in full, any remaining future cruise credit will be applied to your shipboard account as a non-refundable onboard credit.
If you have any questions, please contact your travel agent. Sailings are currently available through spring 2022 with additional eligible sailings to be released at a later date.
We appreciate the planning that goes into a cruise vacation and hope you enjoy this additional time to travel. We look forward to welcoming you aboard as soon as we can and making magic for you and your loved ones.

Is it right to share someone’s personal reservation number?
In this case, it is mine.
I know I’m being picky, but it sure would be nice if they had figured a way to only send it to the people who haven’t used their credit yet or maybe had the subject line say “Important information about your Future Cruise Credit”. I had already used my credit on a cruise coming up in July and the email subject sent me into a momentary panic thinking I was receiving a dreaded cancellation notice.
I think they are sending this to everyone in case you were using the rebooked cruise as a placeholder. Or if you were still unsure of your cruise this summer you now know that your credit is good through most of 2022. I have used my 125% from our cancelled 2020 Alaskan cruise for an Alaskan one this year. With that option on life support, I appreciate this email letting me know I have until Sept 2022 to use the 125%.
My first thought when I got this same email this morning is that they’re about to cancel a big chunk of summer cruises, and they want people to roll their credit to the same cruise next summer instead of cancelling and getting their money back. I guess the third time will have to be the charm with us trying to sail Disney to Greece. :/
Hopefully it also means that they will release summer 2022 schedules soon too!
Per my travel agent, they have not extended onboard booking discounts though. They still expire in May.
Maybe it is my suspicious mind, but if the extend the 125% FCC to 09/30/22 that means the Wish will not be sailing until 10/01/22. They are not about to give discounted rates on the new ship
Block-out dates for the Wish are referenced in the fine print.
our disney cruise was canceled this month we rebooked for may 1st & I read today carnaval cruise. line canceled may cruises and its only a matter of time before other cruise companies follow according to the person who wrote that article. right after we booked the may cruise we booked another disney cruise for October.
I’d get your TA to check with Disney as there are lots of reports of people being told that the benefits are able to be extended when they spoke to Disney today
