No they won't cancel. We booked a cruise on the Dream last September at 65.00/ a day with an interline rate. There were also lot's of Cm's and FL residents on that cruise too. Disney will do what it takes to fill the cruise.

They will not cancel your bad smelling cruise. They may let kids smell free or offer discounts to smelly residents, but they will not cancel. No worries.

I believe that is a rule that Disney implements. Since they follow these boards, they would know if something was posted. There is a private board for CMs. You need to be approved to join it. That information can be discussed there from what I remember, since it isn't a public forum.

Actually, they have in the past and will continue to do so if it is in their best interest. The most recent was done 7/9/13 for the 8/24/14 cruise. The thread discussing this is below, along with a thread where all reported cruises have been put in date order. I honestly was surprised at the number.

August 24, 2014 cruise cancelled

Unless what it takes to fill the cruise is to charter the entire ship.

This isn't the same as canceling for low bookings. Charter cruises happen with every line and doesn't have anything to do wtih how well a cruise is selling.

I'm not sure if you were talking to me, but I did not post a CM rate. I'm not a CM. I posted an interline rate. I only stated that there were some CM's on the ship. I'm sure they also got great rates. As well as the military and FL residents.

Those cruises were changed well in advance. They were not cancelled last minute due to low bookings.

They have changed around itineraries from time to time (especially the Galveston ones that were not selling well) but overall, no, they won't cancel a cruise due to low bookings.

It think it is semantics.. Those of us that have been booked on a 10 day Southern Caribbean and got the call that they decided to change it to 2 5 day Bahama cruises due they could sell those better, feels more like a cancellation as it is a complete disruption of your vacation. Just saying.

I don't think the OP has anything to worry about, as I first posted on this thread. My later response was to the comments that said DCL doesn't cancel cruises because they have.

That explains the Charter cruises, but not the ones on the list that were cancelled for the MR cruises when the Wonder was moved to Galveston, then the cruises that were reconfigured there twice. All of those cases were due to low bookings.

Exactly! If you book a 10-day and it is cancelled and replaced by two 5-days, your plans have been changed. The same thing in Galveston with the 8-days going to different combinations. Oh, and don't forget the disaster in the Med a few years ago. That was a nightmare for many.
