Select Disney Cruise Line itineraries taking place in February 2022 have just modified their itineraries due to the ongoing closure of the cruise port on Grand Cayman. The island’s cruise port has been closed since the end of 2021 when government officials made the decision to keep the port closed to offset the spread of COVID-19.

Initially, the cruise industry along with the island’s hospitality and tourism industry, was hopeful that the port might be able to reopen by January 2022, however, as we are now nearing the end of the month, we can confirm that this was not the case.

A number of upcoming Disney Cruise Line itineraries for February 2022 were just updated on the official Disney Cruise Line website to reflect the port’s continued closure.

The Disney Wonder is adjusting its Six-Night Western Caribbean itinerary departing out of Port Orleans on February 2, 2022. The updated ports of call will include Costa Maya, Mexico in place of Grand Cayman. The following week, the Disney Wonder’s scheduled cruise departing on February 6 will replace Grand Cayman with Progreso Mexico.

Other upcoming scheduled sailings with Disney Cruise Line are unaffected at this time as they did not have Grand Cayman listed as an upcoming port of call. If you are taking a Disney Cruise (or any cruise vacation) in the near future, we recommend checking your cruise website regularly to be aware of changes.

Especially right now, while the cruise industry is still recovering from its earlier shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some aspects of cruise travel are changing frequently. These changes could apply to COVID-19 regulations such as testing requirements or proof of vaccination, but they may also show up in adjusted itineraries as well.

At the end of 2021, we saw an incident where a Disney Cruise Line ship was unable to allow Guests to disembark at St. Thomas due to COVID-19, and recently we have also shared the news of new testing procedures that will be available soon for Guests at the end of their Disney Cruise Line vacations before they travel home.
