Norwegian Cruise Line Cancels Some Cruises Out of Miami

Norwegian Cruise Line has canceled several cruises, including some out of Miami, Florida. No other major cruise lines have yet canceled voyages in the United States, but with Covid cases rising throughout the country it is a possibility.

Disney Cruise Line currently has three ships that sail out of Florida; the Disney Dream, the Disney Fantasy, and the Disney Magic.

Disney has taken extra measures to keep everyone safe. All eligible passengers must be fully vaccinated, those too young must test before arriving. Everyone is required to take a Covid test at the port before boarding. Face coverings are required in all indoor areas, except when eating or drinking.

About Paula K

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
