On the 3-night sailings Nassau will be replaced by a sea day, and the 4-night will add a second stop at Castaway Cay. Emails are being sent to guests booked on the following sail dates to inform guests of the itinerary modification.

    That is a start. I like that. DCL is working with what they can trying to do what they can to satisfy those that they can that want to cruise in the safest environment possible recognizing that whatever they do will not please everyone or governments. Some of us will not be satisfied because either we won’t meet or refuse to meet the requirements needed to enjoy the new norm of cruising. I could be one of them if I choose not to work within the guidelines. But honestly I enjoy cruising too much and DCL is all me and my family have done, so I believe that whatever DCL is doing is truly in the interest of me and my family. I will say it one more time. I look forward to cruising in the future unless something changes in life that make it impossible. And if that happens, then I will be happy for those that are willing to cruise in the safest environment possible. Happy cruise friends. And make the best of what is available to you and your family, whatever it is. Times have changed in our world and changes are needed not only to survive, but to enjoy life. Finally, something is better than nothing. Thank you DCL for something.🤗

    Scott I just was listening to a YouTube cruiser saying the CDC is now saying no cruises to the Bahamas, this would include private islands. Have you heard this? Have you done a recent cruise?

      This is not accurate. Earlier this week, the US State Department/CDC issued a Level 4 travel advisory for The Bahamas. Below is the advisory as posted here (archived link)

    The recent updates I got from my travel agent said that all Disney cruises going to the Bahamas will require all passengers old enough to be fully vaccinated (12+) from 9/3/21 to at least 11/1/21 and that includes Castaway Cay. They are however providing refunds because the notice of this is last minute and people can’t get fully vaccinated soon enough for 9/3 if they didn’t start yet.
