    Good afternoon, in Dec 2019, I put a deposit down on Disney Cruise to be purchased before Dec 2021. Since Disney Cruise Line had been put on hold from March 2020 to Aug 2021, does my deposit shift 18 months OR do I have to book a cruise by December?

    Ahoy Marie!

    I’m happy to hear that you made an Onboard Booking (also known as a placeholder) for a future cruise while onboard your last voyage! A placeholder has some great perks, so I'm so happy you were able to take advantage of it. Just sorry it has been on hiatus from being used for so long. Sounds like you are more than ready to enjoy all that's included on a Disney cruise with Captain Mickey. 

    As you are aware, the onboard booking ordinarily allows you up to 24 months from the date the placeholder was booked to set sail. But in these unique times, the rules have been relaxed to give Guests the chance to use their placeholders. It will not expire in December 2021, but it will also not be extended out for 18 months. I have heard they are being extended as far out as September 2022. My suggestion is that you call Disney Cruise Line to discuss your placeholder and what extension would be available. Also, select Disney Wish block out dates will apply, so you may or may not be able to reserve the Disney Wish due to its overall popularity. 

    I hope that news of your placeholder being extended out well into 2022 brings a smile to your face and that you can land on an itinerary that works for you. WISHing you the best of luck as you select a MAGICal voyage and embark on a WONDERful cruise.

    Happy Sailing!
