PORT CANAVERAL, Fla. — People looking to sail aboard Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship will have to wait a little bit longer to get on board.
The cruise line announced Thursday that the inaugural sailing of the Disney Wish from Port Canaveral will be delayed by six weeks. The ship’s maiden voyage will be pushed back to July 14.
Officials said the Meyer Werft shipyard informed the cruise line it will need more time to finish the ship, due in part to the pandemic and the omicron variant arriving in Germany.
Cruise line officials said they are reaching out to affected guests to help them adjust their vacation plans. Among the options offered to impacted guests is a 50% discount on a future cruise departing by Dec. 31, 2023.
