On Wednesday, October 13th, Disney Cruise Line revised multiple Western Caribbean sailings previously scheduled to stop in Grand Cayman. Disney Cruise Line is sending emails to guests booked on the impacted sailings, but did not issue a summary of the changes, nor provide a reason. So far, it appears to impact only the 4 sailings listed below which sail through the end of 2021.
- Saturday December 11, 2021 🎄 5-Night Western Caribbean Cruise from Miami
- Sunday November 21, 2021 🎄7-Night Western Caribbean Cruise from Port Canaveral (2-stops at Castaway Cay)
- Sunday December 5, 2021 🎄 7-Night Western Caribbean Cruise from Port Canaveral
- Sunday December 19, 2021 🎄7-Night Western Caribbean Cruise from Port Canaveral
The change stems from the Cayman Islands closure to cruise tourism which at last report, will not evaluate the resumption of cruise tourism until late-January 2022 – at the earliest.
The Western Caribbean sailings still show Grand Cayman as a stop on DCL’s website for January sailings and beyond.
We are on the December 5th itinerary that was affected. I knew for over a month that Grand Cayman cruise port was going to be closed till January 2022 just from reading their news sites and government sites. We were just waiting to see what the replacement would be. My agent said it will be an additional day at sea with a 57 dollar port fee credit. We are now watching Jamaica and waiting for a decision from Disney. The Jamaican government is begrudgingly reopening the port slowly next month due to pressure from Royal Caribbean / Carnival.
