Disney Dream to conduct simulated cruise from Port Canaveral

Disney Dream will carry volunteers on the two-night test sailing
Disney Cruise Line has been cleared by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to conduct a two-night simulated sailing from Port Canaveral June 29.

The ship will carry volunteer passengers to test Disney Cruise Line's health safety protocols.

'We have reached an important next step toward our gradual and responsible resumption of service, and are grateful for the productive dialogue with state, local and federal officials, the CDC and others in our industry that has made this possible,' Disney spokeswoman Cynthia Martinez said. 'We look forward to our amazing crew once again creating magic for our guests and to helping the many workers who support our industry get back to work.'

Added Capt. John Murray, CEO, Port Canaveral: 'Our continuous efforts in close consultation with our cruise partners at Disney has led to this important milestone. We’re very excited and ready to welcome back the iconic Disney ships to their home at Port Canaveral.'
