Disney suspends cruises until July 27
Walt Disney Co announced it has suspended all new departures on its Disney Cruise Line until July 27 as the coronavirus outbreak continues.
The company said on its website that guests already booked on affected cruises would either be given a credit to be used for a future sailing within 15 months of their initial sailing date, or a full refund.
As a result of the US-issued "No Sail Order." Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ( CDC), United States cruises are forbidden until July 24.
Chief Executive Robert Chapek said on a May 5 conference call to review the company's second-quarter earnings, the cruise ship division is likely to be the last of its travel-oriented divisions to reopen.
On May 11, Disney reopened its Shanghai Disneyland theme park, but has not yet set a reopen date for Disneyland and Walt Disney World properties in the US.
