COVID News: Disney Cruise Line removes Bahamas from some itineraries

Disney Cruise Line has just released modified itineraries for some of its sailings in September and October that previously listed Nassau, Bahamas, as a port of call.

Earlier this week, DisneyDining brought you the news that Disney Cruise Lines will now require that passengers ages 12 and up are vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to sail on any of the ships in the DCL fleet, which includes the Disney Dream, Disney Magic, Disney Fantasy, Disney Wonder and the newest member, the Disney Wish.

Because of the recently soaring numbers of new COVID-19 cases in Florida, in part due to the highly-contagious Delta variant of the virus, the Bahamas have passed a mandate that all ships coming in to dock in the Bahamas will only be permitted to do so if every crew member and passenger on board the ship (ages 12 and up) are vaccinated.

The removal of the Bahamas only affects certain sailings this fall in September and October.

The new itineraries have an impact on 4-night sailings on September 13, 20, 27, and October 4, 2021. The modified sailings are as follows:

  • Monday – Port Canaveral, FL
  • Tuesday – Day at sea
  • Wednesday – Disney’s Castaway Cay
  • Thursday – Disney’s Castaway Cay
  • Friday – Port Canaveral, FL

The modified 3-night itineraries include sailings on September 10, 17, 24, and October 1 and 8, 2021, and the changes in sailings are as follows:

  • Friday – Port Canaveral, FL
  • Saturday – Day at Sea
  • Sunday – Disney’s Castaway Cay
  • Monday – Port Canaveral, FL

If you have booked sailings on any of the affected dates and have questions concerning your individual sailings, you can reach Disney Cruise Line at (800) 951.3532.

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
