The Disney Cruise Line has announced that they will be offering guests the optional service of both PCR and antigen testing after their cruise.

  • Disney Cruise Line has announced that Inspire Diagnostics, Disney Cruise Line’s third-party testing provider, offers this optional service for $98.33 per person for PCR testing, and $41.40 per person for antigen testing.
