Ohhhh sounds like a dream. Not to have to pack your own trash bags and bring cleaning supplies whileKeeping.

I'm happy that DCL isn't going the WDW route and using the pandemic as an excuse to cut most of their guest services. There will still be twice daily housekeeping, room service, and all of the dining locations will be operational. No masks required outdoors, onboard activities will continue. Castaway Cay is beckoning. We want to cruise.
We don't know the capacity cap is 50% yet, do we?We are keeping all our booked cruises. Most are just dh and I. Both fully vaccinated. Don’t look forward to wearing masks - we have been maskless here for months. But, we will to cruise again. The rest of the restrictions don’t really bother us. And the 50% capacity cap seems like a dream come true!
We agree with needing the “wait and see” option. we have our pay in full date set during the first Dream cruise, so we won‘t be able to decide by then. If we see it isn’t going to be a great experience, we may cancel before the 60 day window hits.The poll is probably missing a "wait and see" kind of option. We'll probably cancel our September 26th Wonder sailing (assuming it sails at all, which is far from certain); however, we're holding on to it for now just to see if anything is different for the Wonder, or if they at least offer a more flexible cancellation policy like they did the Dream. If we sail it'll be mostly because it's the first post-COVID revenue sailing on the Wonder and are excited about that aspect of it. My wife has already nope'd out of that cruise because of the restrictions (I'd go with a friend instead of her) so I'm doing another Celebrity Edge sailing in October with her instead.
Honestly I'm glad to see this. I wouldn't have been shocked if they'd forced people to take the cancellation fee - VERY glad they're doing the right thing!I took advantage of the Dream cancellation policy to get out of a 2022 Concierge reservation.
Limited Time Disney Dream Special Cancelation Policy
As the new safety protocols for the Disney Dream’s restart were revealed, Disney Cruise Line is offering guests booked on the Disney Dream for sailings through March 28, 2022 the ability to modify their sail date or cancel their sailing and receive a full refund back to the original form of payment by Augusts 6, 2021. On August 7th, the special limited policy will revert back to the standard cancellation policy.
That would be an extra cost of $200+ for pre-cruise and embarkation day testing, plus the worries of a false positive."Guests who are fully vaccinated may choose to provide proof of vaccination in order to be exempt from pre-trip and Embarkation Day testing requirements (unless arriving from outside the United States) and travel insurance requirements."
