Disney Cruise Line has announced that all Guests ages 12 and older on upcoming sailings must be fully vaccinated to board the ship due to the requirement from The Bahamas.
Just last week, The Bahamas passed an emergency order not allowing cruise ships to port at The Bahamas nor any private islands starting September 3 until November 1, 2021, if passengers 12 and older are not fully vaccinated.
We had wondered what the response would be from Disney Cruise Line as Castaway Cay is considered a private island in The Bahamas, and today, Disney Cruise Line announced that passengers 12 and older must be fully vaccinated to board during the emergency order currently going through November 1, 2021.
Guests who do not provide proof of vaccination to meet the requirements will not be permitted to board the ship.
Guests sailing during the Sept. 3 – Nov. 1 vaccination requirement can modify their sail date or cancel without cancellation fees by contacting their Travel Agent by September 3, 2021.
Refunds will be processed back to the original form of payment. Standard cancellation policies will apply on or after September 4, 2021.
Fully Vaccinated Details per CDC Guidelines:
Guests who have received both doses of Moderna, Pfizer or AstraZeneca are considered fully vaccinated 14 days after the second dose has been administered.
Guests who have received Johnson & Johnson are considered fully vaccinated 14 days after receiving one dose.
Guests with both one dose of Moderna and one dose of Pfizer are considered fully vaccinated 14 days after the second dose.
Guests who have received one single dose of a vector vaccine (e.g. AstraZeneca) and one single dose of a mRNA vaccine (e.g. Pfizer, Moderna) are not considered fully vaccinated.
