Disney Cruise Line Changing Final Payment Dates and Cancellation Policies on Cruises

Disney Cruise Line is changing their final payment dates and the cancellation policy for cruises on their four cruise ships.

The following changes will go into effect on September 11, 2018 for Disney Cruise Line’s cruises:

For inside, ocean view, and balcony staterooms on cruises five nights or less, the final payment will be due 90 days before the cruise.  The current final payment date for these cruises is 75 days before the cruise. Cancellation fees will begin to kick in at 89 days before the cruise and will be as follows:

  • 89-45 days – The deposit amount
  • 44-30 days – 50% of the price of the cruise
  • 29-15 days – 75% of the price of the cruise
  • 14-0 days – 100% of the price of the cruise

For inside, ocean view, and balcony staterooms on cruises six nights and longer, final payment will be moving to 120 days before the cruise.   This is a change from the current final payment dates of 90 days before the cruise. Cancellation fees will begin at 119 days before the cruise and will be as follows:

  • 119-56 days – The deposit amount
  • 55-30 days – 50% of the price of the cruise
  • 29-15 days – 75% of the price of the cruise
  • 14-0 days – 100% of the price of the cruise

Suites and concierge staterooms will have a slightly different final payment schedule.  For cruises five nights or less, the final payment will be due 120 days out.  For cruises six nights and longer, the final payment date is 150 days prior the cruise.

These changes will go into effect for all cruises booked on or after September 11, 2018.

This is the second time in a little over a year that Disney Cruise Line has changed the final payment dates on their cruises.  Last August, the cruise line adjusted the final payment dates and also made them less friendly to cruisers.

For all bookings which require a deposit, the amount due is 20% of the cruise fare (including the non-commissionable fare). This deposit policy applies to all stateroom Guests (including children under age 3).
