On Thursday, December 30, Disney Fantasy docked at Charlotte Amalie (St Thomas USVI) where passengers learned they would not be permitted to disembark the ship because of an ‘abundance of caution’ as a result of both the increase in COVID cases in Saint Thomas and a small number of fully vaccinated crew and passengers (reported as less than 1% of those onboard) which are in isolation.
Captain Jason reported over the intercom/PA system there were passengers in quarantine.
Guests will receive a 20% FCC (future cruise credit) and a US$200 OBC/onboard credit.
At ~9:30 am local time, Disney Fantasy departed St Thomas to spend the day at sea.
The ship is on a 7-night Eastern Caribbean voyage and is scheduled to return to Port Canaveral/Orlando (Florida USA) on Sunday, January 2.
The call at Castaway Cay (DCL's private Bahamian island) is still scheduled for Saturday, January 1.
