BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. — In March 2020, the Disney Dream was the last ship to sail from Port Canaveral before the suspension of cruising from U.S. ports.
Now, the ship is scheduled to depart from the port Saturday on a trial voyage with volunteer cast members.
“It seems like we’ve been working pretty hard to get to this point,” said Commissioner Wayne Justice with Canaveral Port Authority. “And it’s been, as you know, quite a team effort to get to this point.”
Initially, the Disney Dream planned to depart from Port Canaveral on June 29, but the two-day simulated was delayed due to a small number of inconsistent COVID-19 test results which turned out to be negative.
Royal Caribbean has its own trial voyage scheduled from the Port on July 27. The largest ship in Carnival’s fleet, the Mardi Gras, is scheduled to set sail with paying passengers on July 31.
