Sunday’s sailing of the Disney Magic from PortMiami, the first of the season, has been canceled, Disney Cruise Line said.
The newly renovated ship will instead start sailing from Miami on Oct. 25.
A cruise line spokeswoman told USA Today that “challenging weather conditions” during a transatlantic sailing made it impossible to complete some of the work in time.
Passengers who were booked on the Sunday sailing will get a full refund as well as a refund of airline change fees. They will also be given a free sailing on the ship through May 16 or a 35 percent discount on any Disney cruise to the Bahamas or Caribbean in the next two years, holidays excluded.
The ship underwent extensive renovations in drydock; additions include a new atrium lobby, new children’s area, a three-story water slide, an updated Animator’s Palate restaurant and new restaurant called Carioca’s.
Disney Magic is scheduled to sail from Miami until the beginning of January, when Disney Wonder will take its place for seasonal trips to the Bahamas and Caribbean until May.
