Disney confirms the reason for the Disney Wish test cruise cancellations and if they will affect future cruises.
The Disney Wish is Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship! Disney Cruise Line has been teasing us with many updates about the new ship and guests have a lot to look forward to. Recently, we shared a sneak peek at merchandise and restaurants.
From cinematic dining adventures, a tower suite, entertainment, and just stunning staterooms, it has it all. Guests even have a chance to ride on Disney Cruise Line’s first attraction at sea. Recently, Disney offered an amazing discount when the maiden voyage was delayed.
Arrival to Port Canaveral
The Disney Wish arrived Monday to Port Canaveral with a livestream christening ceremony. Before the Disney Wish cruises open to the public, Disney scheduled preview sailings. These include news media and travel expert cruise on June 29 along with Cast Member test sailings scheduled for this week.
However, since then things haven’t gone according to the original plan. We announced the first test cruise cancellation HERE. Not only that, but Disney also cancelled the second test cruise the following day. This leaves us wondering if these cancellations will affect the media/travel cruise next week.
Why Test Sails were Cancelled
Are you wondering if these cancellations are COVID-19 related? If so, you can put your mind at ease. According to Orlando Sentinel, the ship is not under any sort of COVID-19 warning. This was verified on the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s COVID-19 dashboard for tracking list.

However, Disney Cruise Line confirmed the reasoning with the Orlando Sentinel on Wednesday. Disney shared that two test cruises planned for Disney employees and their families this week were cancelled to focus on preparations for next week’s christening event. As of now, the news media and travel expert cruise on June 29 will sail as scheduled.
