Today at The Walt Disney Company 2021 Annual Meeting of Shareholders Disney CEO Bob Chapek addressed a shareholder question regarding the return of the Disney Cruise Line into service.

Chapek indicated that he is anticipating “with some luck” that maybe by Fall 2021 the Disney Cruise Line could be able to return “some limited operations.” He indicated that this is obviously dependent health and safety guidelines and the number of coronavirus vaccinations taking place by that time.

Disney has previously announced an expectation to return by early 2022 with destinations including Hawaii and the Caribbean.
