Disney Cruise Line has made an update to their cruise line policy regarding COVID-19. See how this might affect a future cruise.
It seemed like it took forever, but despite the fact we are still under a pandemic, cruising has finally returned to Disney.
Cruises finally returned to the U.S. back in August of 2021 with the Disney Dream kicking off the first cruise date back since cruises ended. With cruising returning, policies for guests were also put in place.
After the initial return to cruising, vaccination was not required, but this policy was changed. It seems as if every day a new development occurs.

Another update to the COVID-19 Policy
Today, Disney Cruise Line updated their COVID-19 policy relating to guests who have recently recovered from COVID-19. Here is the official update from Disney Cruise Line:
In some cases, people who have recently recovered from COVID-19 may still test positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus. If Guests have tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 within 11-90 days of their sail date, they may qualify to be considered as “90-Day-Recovered.” With the appropriate documentation and subsequent approval, Guests considered “90-Day-Recovered” are not required to participate in COVID-19 testing during the Pre-Sail, Embarkation or Disembarkation phases of their voyage.Disney Cruise Line
Since people can continue to test positive for weeks, Disney Cruise Line will now allow guests who tested positive within 11 to 90 days of their sail date.
Guests will now be required to provide a doctor’s note saying that they have recovered, be vaccinated and include a copy of an antigen, NAAT, rapid PCR or lab-based test taken within 11 to 90 days of the sail date.
