It’s no secret that the cruise industry took a huge blow when COVID-19 struck, including Disney Cruise Line. And while we are seeing excellent signs, Disney is slowly getting their fleet back on the big blue. Unfortunately, a test cruise out of Port Canaveral was postponed due to positive COVID results. There was success however as the Disney Cruise Line set sail with passengers for the first time in over a year for a successful test cruise in the UK! A new announcement out of Canada is making the cruise progress look even more promising, as the Canada cruise ban is ending!
Canada has announced they will be ending the cruise ban which will once again allow cruise ships to sail into Canada waters. If you’re ever dreamed of planning a cruise to Alaska with the Disney Cruise Line, this is a great sign as hopefully Disney will be able to set sail as planned with the Disney Wonder once again in 2022.
As reported by DisneyCruiseLineBlog, “Today (July 15), Honourable Omar Alghabra, Canada’s Minister of Transport, announced that, as of November 1, 2021, the prohibition of cruise ships in Canadian waters would no longer be in effect if operators are able to fully comply with public health requirements.”
Currently, the Disney Cruise Line has 2022 Alaskan Cruises available, many of which are hoping to depart from Vancouver. With Canada lifting their cruise ban, we’re thrilled that the Disney Wonder can once again sail into Canadian waters.
