Today, Disney Cruise Line released the itineraries for the recently announced Disney Magic at Sea staycations sailings.

The Disney Magic is scheduled to sail a variety of itineraries including 2- and 3-night voyages, as well as limited 4-night sailings round-trip from London TilburyNewcastleLiverpool and Southampton.

Along with the itinerary announcement, Disney Cruise Line included some important information on their commitment to health and safety. Disney is making it known to guests, that upon reopening, certain onboard venues may be limited in capacity and subject to restricted availability or even closure based on guidance from UK government, health authorities and medical experts. Furthermore, certain experiences, services and amenities may be modified, have limited availability or remain closed. Subject to government approval. Disney will provide more information as it becomes available. 

Disney Cruise Line is implementing multiple layers of health and safety measures considering the guidance from the UK government, health authorities and medical experts. Disney Cruise Line’s approach brings together 5 elements that help promote health and safety for all Guests and Crew Members.

  • Health & Wellness – Our approach emphasizes a combination of health and safety measures. This includes COVID-19 testing, health screenings, face coverings, reduced Guest capacity and physical distancing.
  • Cleaning & Disinfecting – Disney Cruise Line is operating at elevated cleaning and sanitation levels, with an emphasis on high-touch surfaces.
  • Innovative Technology – We’re harnessing the power of the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app to promote health and safety.
  • Crew Member Training – Safety starts with our Crew, so we’ve adopted a number of new policies and practices.
  • Working Together – We’re giving Guests the resources they need to navigate our new policies and do their part.

It is important to check Disney Cruise Line’s website regularly as they will continue to refine and share additional details in the future.

    Wonder what the cancellation policy will be like, and what would happen if you failed your covid test?

  2. Margot

    I would need to know more about COVID related protocols, masking?, distancing?, Covid vaccines?, spa?, food service as in enhanced room service and restaurant capacities?, room capacity limits?, embarking/disembarking distancing?, outside vs inside? etc…
    I can’t wait to cruise but I want to be safe and I don’t really want to have to sit on deck in a mask.
    So I’m not sure!

    Do you know when they will release the DVC points charts for these? We’re interested but it will depend on the points!

    Wow, unusual to be a UK resident who has DVC points! You guys must have so many frequent flyer miles from heading over to the States.

    Reply
  5. Helen

    Sorry, I meant yes we are UK residents, just that we only use our points every other year so don’t get frequent flyer miles!
