Following the Disney Dream’s test cruise over the weekend, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) changed the status of the Disney Dream from Crew Only (approved for simulated) to Simulated. Before we go any further, here is a look at the latest CDC cruise ship color status showing the Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy, and the Disney Wonder once again all in a green status.
So far so go, it would appear based on the status change the Disney Dream’s test cruise over the weekend went well, as today, Disney Cruise Line is offering Test Cruises from what I gather to Disney Cruise Line cast members. The sailings are a mix of Bahamian and Caribbean on both ships with the final sailing coming just before the next publicly bookable cruises for each ship.
The Disney Dream’s upcoming test cruises are 3-night Bahamian Cruises from Port Canaveral visiting Nassau and Castaway Cay on the following dates:
- Sunday August 1, 2021 3-Night Bahamian Cruise from Port Canaveral (Cast Test Cruise)
- Thursday August 5, 2021 3-Night Bahamian Cruise from Port Canaveral (Cast Test Cruise)
The Disney Fantasy’s upcoming test cruises are a 3-night Bahamian visiting Nassau and Castaway Cay and a 4-night Western Caribbean from Port Canaveral to Cozumel on the following dates:
- Thursday August 26, 2021 3-Night Bahamian Cruise from Port Canaveral (Cast Test Cruise)
- Sunday August 29, 2021 4-Night Western Caribbean Cruise from Port Canaveral (Cast Test Cruise)
Now this is purely speculations, but it would appear the path to resumption for Disney Cruise Line in the US remains on track, and based on these test cruise dates, the Disney Dream’s August 9th and Disney Fantasy’s September 4th sailings are looking more and more promising for those currently booked. Albiet, anything can change so please take all this at the surface level and hope for the best.
