BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA —
Disney Cruise Line announced a change to the onboard booking policy for guests.
Earlier this month, Disney enacted a new policy which requires guests who book a future cruise while onboard a Disney Cruise Line ship to complete their travel within 18 months in order to maintain the benefits.
According to DisneyCruiseLineBlog.com, those benefits include: 10 percent off rates quoted on disneycruise.com, up to $200 in onboard credits per stateroom, and a reduced deposit on sailings of 7 nights or longer.
Cruise guests who have an existing onboard reservation have an additional six months to travel, which means they must sail on their existing cruise reservation with the onboard booking benefits prior to November 30, 2015. If these guests are unable to sail within this 24-month period, they too will have current onboard booking benefits removed from their reservation.
The guests with an existing onboard reservation may still modify their sailing dates within the 24-month period provided the modifications are done outside of any applicable cancellation period.
