Disney Cruise Modifies Multiple Disney Dream Itineraries for Early Summer 2024

Disney Dream Transatlantic Menu

Disney Cruise line is alerting passengers to changes in the itineraries of some Mediterranean cruises. The cruises affected are sailing through Particular Sensitive Sea Area (PSSA), and ships passing through these areas have been asked to reduce their speed to help prevent collisions with whales and other cetaceans.

The International Maritime Organization

(IMO) has designated certain areas in the North-West Mediterranean Sea as a Particular Sensitive Sea Area (PSSA) and is recommending ships reduce their speeds while traversing the PSSA to reduce the risk of collisions with whales and other cetaceans. The recommended speed restriction applies to the area located along the coastlines of France, Italy, Monaco, and Spain.

While the Disney Dream is sailing in the PSSA, the ship will reduce its speed to comply with the IMO’s recommendation and help protect the local whale population. Due to the ship’s reduced speed, it will be necessary to modify your sailing’s itinerary.

Are you happy with the compensation?
