Disney Cruise Line Changes Promotional Offerings for Bookings Made Onboard

Published

on

Disney Cruise Line announced it has adjusted its promotional offerings for passengers who book future voyages with the company while sailing onboard one of the cruise line’s ships.

According to CruiseCritic.com, Disney Cruise Line customers will still receive a 10 percent discount when they book a stateroom in categories 4A through 11C while sailing another itinerary, but the company will no longer offer onboard credit.

In addition, passengers who book a sailing of seven nights or longer while on one of the cruise line’s voyages will now be able to put down only 50 percent of the required deposit.

“Disney Cruise Line regularly evaluates and adjusts its promotional offers based on a variety of factors,” a Disney Cruise Line spokesperson told Cruise Critic.

The news comes just days after Disney Cruise Line announced the Disney Wonder would make its way to New Orleans by late January 2020 to begin offering four-, five-, seven- and even a 14-night cruise throughout the Caribbean.

The Disney Wonder is decked out in Southern flair with Tiana’s Palace, which makes its addition to the Big Easy a natural fit.

Bookings will open to the public on October 3.

Cruise Ship Denied by Two Caribbean Ports Amid Coronavirus Outbreak

Published

on

An MSC Cruises ship was turned away from at least two ports in the Caribbean on Tuesday after a crew member fell ill amid the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

According to The New York Times, MSC Meraviglia was denied from docking in both Ocho Rios, Jamaica and Georgetown, Cayman Islands after port authorities learned that a crew member from the Philippines was ill. However, the Associated Press reported that the employee was believed to be sick with the common seasonal flu.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats.

“In an abundance of caution, in order to provide protection to the health and safety of the residents of the Cayman Islands, the government has denied permission for the cruise ship to call on Grand Cayman as previously scheduled,” Dwayne Seymour, health minister of the Cayman Islands, said in a statement.

The cruise line expressed frustration over the repeated denial, claiming that the ill crew member and all passengers on the ship had passed a health screening prior to embarking.

“The crew member had traveled to Miami from Manila, via direct connection in Istanbul,” MSC Cruises said in a statement to the Times. “He developed symptoms of common flu and tested positive to Type A influenza after he visited the ship’s 24/7 Medical Center while already on board. He has no other symptoms.”

The ship, which is carrying more than 4,500 passengers and 1,600 crew members, is in the midst of a 15-day roundtrip sailing from Miami that had included scheduled stops in Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, Mexico, Bahamas, Belize and Honduras.

MSC Meraviglia isn’t the first ship to be turned away from port amid fears of the spreading coronavirus and likely won’t be the last. Tuesday’s unexpected hiccup comes just one week after MSC Cruises updated MSC Bellissima’s Grand Voyage itinerary to Asia.
