Hey Gang

Here is the link to the 2010 podcast cruise pricing and waitlist submission page.

Your requests will be processed in the order they are received as soon as Tracy returns from vacation in a few weeks.

Please do not email me, Tracy or anyone else at Dreams Unlimited Travel about the status of your submission. As soon as Tracy returns you will get official quotes and will at that time be able to submit your deposit.

We have held a large number of staterooms on this cruise to lock in the best price so don't panic - you will get on this cruise if you so desire.

https://www.dreamsunlimitedtravel.com/cruise/podcast-cruise-pricing.cfm

One more thing - Disney Cruise Line is not booking category 12 staterooms for 2010 sailings. We have not been given a reason why by DCL, just that we know we cannot book these. Category 11 is the lowest stateroom category available.

Hi everybody! I've never cruised before. Does anyone know if there are two adults and a 3 years old child in stateroom, if I need to check the "2 people" or the "3 people" box, in the 2010 podcast cruise link?
Thank you very much to anyone that can help me :)

You need to check 3 people. You are signing up for the total number in the stateroom, including yourself.

We were not able to join the podcast cruise because my brother-in-law got married last Sunday - you all had a lot more fun than I did. Instead we decided to cruise in February and while there, received the $99 bounceback promotion which we are taking advantage of in December (I wanted to see the holiday decorations and didn't have a clue there would be a second podcast cruise in December of next year). If I can convince my family to do another cruise the following December should I get a quote now or would I be able to book on board in December and transfer my reservation to Dreams on Board? I know those on board last week could do that but was not sure if that was just a one time opportunity to book on board.

While I didn't have the pleasure of joining you last week I did enjoy the company of our non-cruisers on the non-cruise board.

We've never been on a cruise before so I have to ask of those with experience: verandah or no verandah? (I'm leaning towards yes on the verandah)

My thinking is that if the podcast cruise is packed with activites, will you really be spending that much time in your room?

You should hold the date now and check pricing when you are onboard to see if it is better. We can go over that later.

That's ok, I caught it. You too Annette.

Not much time spent in the room. Depends if you want to sit outside in quiet or if you want to be out and about.

Don't worry - we know.

It's all been automated and we know which ones are Podcast Cruises.

Tracy would still like new ones submitted to do note Podcast Cruise as a doublecheck for her. But if you submitted already don't worry about it.

We signed up on the cruise, and we have decided to leave the children at home :) I love them dearly, but think DH and I would really enjoy not having them present for the next cruise. Besides, I didn't go on my first cruise 'til I was 34. They aren't deprived children. I'm REALLY hoping that James can go, because I don't think I can cruise alone.

Couple questions for John & Tracy when time permits.

1) I checked YES for transfers.. I'm assuming that is from WDW to/from the DCL... Is that correct?

2) Do you plan on using "The Dolphin" are the base WDW resort again this time? Should we hear something about that in the next few months or so.

Thanks for getting the wait list up so soon.

Tracy... have a Great vacation.

Hello all,
This will be my first cruise and I hope this will lead to many more. I look forward to meeting fellow podcasters on this cruise. One question though, should I stay at WDW before or after the cruise? I wanted to see the parks decorated for Christmas, but I am not sure when it would be better to attend. Thanks for your answers, I know they will be very helpful.

Nicole - you guys are going to have such a great time alone. It was so nice to get up and out without having to get the kids up and ready as well. We rebooked for next year, but are bringing the kids this time. If James can't make it - I know he told dh and myself that it is a really busy time for him at the store, you can totally do it alone, you know so many people now that you would be fine.

Did they give you the paper confirmation? Leslie (rebooking agent) gave me a confirmation invoice and on it shows all the cruise info, she just automatically put down the same late seating for next cruise.

Ok folks....

We posted this thread as a way to let folks start "talking amongst yourselves".

Tracy is on vacation and shouldnt be answering questions regarding the 2010 sailing.

She will be back in full force beginning June 1st.

To those looking for details about the next cruise...I will tell you the same exact thing I told folks back in January 2008.

It's too early to start planning anything with DCL. Details will be few and far between for months...even a year.

If you have specific questions regarding dining preferences, stateroom selection, preferred location etc....put a sticky note on your laptop as a reminder to ask Tracy AFTER June 1st.

She really is on vacation and is so dedicated that she will stop her fun to answer the questions asked here.

Let's give her the chance to relax. She's earned it.

And besides.....we have 19 months to make decisions.

Thanks,
Kevin

Ok folks....

We posted this thread as a way to let folks start "talking amongst yourselves".

Tracy is on vacation and shouldnt be answering questions regarding the 2010 sailing.

She will be back in full force beginning June 1st.

Ian, the girls, and I are excited to be going! This is our first cruise on DCL (and Ian's first one ever). Can't wait to meet all of you!

I've even convinced my brother and his wife to come also. That's the only way I'll ever get them to WDW! At least I know they'll be buying a Cat 4 or 5!

So where is the best place on the ship for our cabin to be if I get seasick (I'm bringing drugs for it)? Exterior cabin or not?

Just curious what has everyone been choosing for their dining time slot?

I requested late, it's around 8:15. Most of the disers on the last cruise were on late seating.


So where is the best place on the ship for our cabin to be if I get seasick (I'm bringing drugs for it)? Exterior cabin or not?

Thankfully, I don't get seasick, but from what I've been told, you want lower levels and midship (less movement), not sure if it matters if you are inside or outside.

The podcast cruise was our first ever cruise and we had a cat 9 midship. 2566 on deck 2. Deluxe outside porthole. We couldn't have been happier. Great location, no noise to speak of (while we were in the room). DW was worried beforehand but while we did feel movement here and there, especially Wednesday night at sea, we were nowhere close to feeling ill or nauseated.

Next cruise we are on deck 6 with a verandah. :woohoo:

So glad you are going to be coming Nancy!! Although I know we'll have met before the podcast cruise, it'll be nice to see you during the cruise.
When I read your question about the stateroom, I glossed over "for our cabin" and thought you were just asking where you should be if you were going to be seasick - I was thinking, somewhere near a bathroom? :laughing: Next time, I will read each and every word.

We've never been on a cruise before so I have to ask of those with experience: verandah or no verandah? (I'm leaning towards yes on the verandah)

My thinking is that if the podcast cruise is packed with activites, will you really be spending that much time in your room?

We have 2 kids so the extra space on the balcony has really come in handy. It's a nice spot to have a glass of wine before dinner or watch the sunset. The problem with a verandah is that once you have it, it's hard to cruise without it. I rebooked for podcast cruise #2 for just DH and I and can't give it up...

WOO HOO! Deck 6 will retain it's reputation at the party deck. We were mid ship/deck 6 last week and I was VERY nauseous on wed night. Had to break out the bonine. Could have been the purple cocktail I had at the party, though.

Tracy,

We rebooked on the cruise.

I wanted to know how we select the dinner seating.

I also was thinking of adding a room to our reservation. How do we do this? Can we get the same rate that we got on the cruise?

Thanks for everything. :)

Chris- Did the onboard agent gave you a slip of paper (about half-sheet size) that says DCL Friends and Family Certificate? We got one with a code that offered the same onboard credit if a friend booked within 30 days on the same cruise. You can do through a travel agent so I'd guess you would include this info with the booking request to DU. Unfortunately, they don't get the 10% off that you received onboard.

Hope this helps!

Ok folks....

We posted this thread as a way to let folks start "talking amongst yourselves".

Tracy is on vacation and shouldnt be answering questions regarding the 2010 sailing.

She will be back in full force beginning June 1st.

To those looking for details about the next cruise...I will tell you the same exact thing I told folks back in January 2008.

It's too early to start planning anything with DCL. Details will be few and far between for months...even a year.

If you have specific questions regarding dining preferences, stateroom selection, preferred location etc....put a sticky note on your laptop as a reminder to ask Tracy AFTER June 1st.

She really is on vacation and is so dedicated that she will stop her fun to answer the questions asked here.

Let's give her the chance to relax. She's earned it.

And besides.....we have 19 months to make decisions.

Thanks,
Kevin

Hi Kevin:

You're right... I know I'm just a tad... Ok... maybe more... excited about our first cruise. With that inexperience come lots of questions. I have to realize we have almost 19 months for the fun to begin and that means there’s lots of time for questions to be answered. So, whoa doggy!!!

The DIS boards are great for answering questions. However, if you want a lot of info all in one place, I would buy PassPorter's Field Guide to the Disney Cruise Line and Its Ports of Call by Dave and Jennifer Marx.

Hi Mark, I'm feeling the same as you. This will be our first cruise as well. As of right now it will be my son coming with me but I'm trying to convince my husband he should go instead since it seems like there are a lot of couples.
Either way it will be an awesome time and I'm already thinking of so many questions.

I just wanted to say that I completely agree with both of these recommendations!

My DH (ScubaD) and I REALLY want to go on Podcast Cruise 2.0. I am a teacher, and that's where my dilemma comes in!

We are given 3 personal leave days a year (one where the sub is covered and 2 where we pay the sub difference). We are also able to bank a day from the previous year if we didn't use it, for a total of 4 days. This would work out great for the cruise, but I need all 4 days for the 2009-2010 school year and won't have an extra to bank for the 2010-2011 school year. DH and I are doing the marathon weekend in WDW next January and I'm using 2 personal leave days. Then our DS is getting married next May in Oregon :goodvibes, so will be using the other 2 days for the wedding. My only hope right now is that maybe DS will get married in the summer, so I won't need to use those 2 days, although they seem pretty set on wanting a May wedding.

Hopefully something will work, but if not, there's always Podcast Cruise 3.0 ;)

Oh, my! I'm very excited!! I sent my dh an e-mail with the cruise info (didn't think there was anyway he would want to do it), he said this afternoon that he is open to doing the cruise! :banana:

He has met the Podcast Crew and really likes the whole Disboard thing (through me), but the only cruise we ever went on (many, many years ago), he was not impressed and never wanted to cruise again.

When he said he was open, I was thrilled. Now, I just have to work our business commitments, around the cruise dates. That's tough, because Nov.-Dec. is our busiest time, but I'm sure going to try to make this work.

Since this is so far away, it is very possible that the people going will change. Can you change the parties in the cabin without losing your reservation? I was lead to believe that this is the case, the last time I cruised with DCL.

It sounds like everyone had a great time on the last Podcast Cruise & i've decided to try to attend the one next year. One question though, I am a single cruiser & only saw pricing based upon 2 people, I was wondering if it would be any cheaper or more expensive by myself. TIA!

Answers to some recent questions....

- Yes, some posts are doubled. We tried merging the threads when Pete made the new sub-forum and something happened to cause double posts. We are working on correcting it but all future posts should be OK.

- You can book now and change your party later. Just be aware that if you add/change people it could be at a higher price. Remember you are only locking in the price of the folks you actually pay a deposit on. Since this is an 'off season' cruise the price should stay the same for a while - just be aware you are taking a risk if you don't book/deposit everyone initially.

- Single cruisers pay what is called the single suplement cost - about 175% of the cost of one person in a double occupacy room. You will need to submit a request for pricing through the form we put up and note you are a single traveler - Tracy will get you a price when she gets home.

There is a thread on this sub-forum for folks looking to share a room. You might want to look there for a roommate to help offset the cost.

What started as one thread was doubled when this sub-forum opened. I tried to merge the threads so that no posts were lost and that doubled a bunch of them. Apparanetly, this is a skill I do not yet possess. :rotfl: Sorry!

Since this is so far away, it is very possible that the people going will change. Can you change the parties in the cabin without losing your reservation?

You can change the people in the stateroom but not the laed name on the reservation. If the lead name needs to change, you need to cancel and start over.

I am a single cruiser & only saw pricing based upon 2 people, I was wondering if it would be any cheaper or more expensive by myself. TIA!

DCL lists all of their pricing based on double occupancy. Single travelers pay 175% of the price in order to have a stateroom to themselves. Most guests find it less expensive to bring another guests or to share a stateroom. There is already a thread for folks looking to find a room mate on the cruise.

No one needs to email me if you didn't indicate it is for the podcast cruise. Now that the form is up, it is putting a notification on there for me. It was just before the form was up that it wasn't and I just needed to make sure I could wait until I returned from vacation.

Ok, I have a question for everyone. I was going to go ahead and submit my request forms, but at this point I'm not 100% on our stateroom category choice. Is this something that can be changed as we get closer (space allowing)? I am thinking that so far in the future I don't know what finances will look like. Should I book lower category and upgrade if I have the money or book what I really want and downgrade if necessary. :confused3 I've never cruised before, so this will be a first for us, and very possibly our honeymoon! Thanks!

Wow, I can't believe your boss would say yes or no this far out. If I asked mine for 18 months in the future they'd tell me check back in a year.

Well, my boss typically takes Christmas week off, and it's year end for me, trying to get all the loose ends tied up. Since I managed last December, and she's said ok to some time off this December, I didn't think I would push my luck that she'd be ok for next December.

Due to downsizing, my boss and I cover for each other for the essential crucial stuff the other person does when either of us is sick or on vacation. We have no other backup people. Since this is WAY far off into the future, I did preface my request with: "I know this will seem premature, but I really need to know if it's ok in order to lock in an opportunity."

I did find my Castaway Club card, and I sent in my request to the woman who doesn't know the meaning of the word "vacation". :laughing:

I love Disney and the Dis, but DH will never come with me for this (I can barely get him to WDW once a year and even then he mostly golfs)

I know there is a roommate search/thread already on the go, but could I book a cabin for myself and if so, does anyone have any idea about the single supplement cost?

The single supplement cost is 75% of the cruise fare. The best way to find out is to submit a request and I'll send you a no-obligation quote with the price for a single.

It's difficult to set an exact date. It will likely be around August 1, but could be sooner if we run out of space.

Tracy also tells me certain categories of staterooms are starting to sell out so if you have a specific stateroom or category stateroom you want you need to act fast or they may be gone.

Specifically there are only a couple of the categroy 7 navigator verandah rooms left. These only sleep 3 people and don't have a full verandah but they are an economical way to get a verandah stateroom.

The same goes for category 6 staterooms - these are selling fast. The category 5 and 6 are basically the same room (except for location on the ship) but cat 6 staterooms are cheaper than cat 5 staterooms. So if you want a cat 6 to save money act fast!!!

One last thing she mentioned was that connecting staterooms are starting to become harder to find in each category. If you are large party and want more space connecting staterooms can be the best way to go - but they may be sold if you wait.

Only a small deposit now can hold your stateroom and lock in your rate.

If you're even thinking about going on this cruise I advise you book as soon as possible so you get exactly what you want.

We will remind you when the final payment is due far enough in advance that you have enough time to cancel and get your deposit back if you need to.

I did PCC1.0 solo and it was a blast. There were so many great people I met I found I was not really in the cabin all that much. My first Disney cruise was solo as well and met some great people on that trip that I am still in contact with. Hope you can work it out to join

I haven't really told my husband yet that I expect him to cruise with a bunch of people he doesn't know. I will just have to pull the Birthday card since the podcast cruise happens during my birthday!!!! Very excited and a tiny bit scared to meet all of you.

:welcome::welcome::welcome::welcome::welcome:
Welcome Aboard!

Spend a lot of time here with us on the boards, and we will be old friends :hug: by the time the Cruise comes around.

Boy this sounds just like me... I haven't told my DH that we're going either ( I plan on telling him on his birthday this Oct ) and my birthday is during the cruise too ( Dec 15th )

This will be our first cruise - hopefully not our last :worship:

I did PCC1.0 solo and it was a blast. There were so many great people I met I found I was not really in the cabin all that much. My first Disney cruise was solo as well and met some great people on that trip that I am still in contact with. Hope you can work it out to join

I have booked it!!! I did put in the name of my friend but she may not be able to come so I may need to find a roomie, but there's plenty of time for that.

I am very excited. I've joined the West Coast FE group, so I'll get to experience that too!

I just put in a request for a quote and traveling solo! I went on a cruise back in October 2001 and ended up going alone cuz the other 3 gals were afraid after 9/11. I had fun but it was pretty lonely - I missed my kids esp on Halloween night but it was for 7 days.

Now I can't remember how long this cruise is? Can anyone enlighten me? (I'm the type of person who will sign up for anything then ask questions! :lmao:) I'm so anxious to meet some new people - esp Disney lovers like me ;)

I have an idea you will not be lonely. One quarter of the people on the ship are DISers. Friends you haven't met yet.

Try to follow allow along (not always easy :rolleyes: ) and join in on the message :surfweb: boards.

See you on the ship!

DH doesn't listen to the Podcasts or go on the forums so I think at the moment he is thinking what am I getting him into into :rotfl:

The kids aren't coming with us as it's not fair to take them out of school :rotfl2:

They don't know anything about this so we will have to think up a good excuse as to why they are not coming with us.

Any suggestions ????

We have 6 people in our family - 2 parents/4 children; one child is in college and has a current girlfriend. This cruise is over 17 months away. If I book 2 rooms in Category 11; say 4 in one room and 2 in another - or 3 and 3 - can I change that number and pay the difference if we add another person at a later date?

When would be my absolute deadline to add another person? I'm assuming I could have as many as 4 in each room, right?

What happens if I want to get 2 rooms, but later change my headcount to 5 people total? What is my absolute deadline to subtract a person?

I'm hesitant to commit so far in advance - anything could happen. I certainly don't want to say 6 people definite and then be stuck if not all 6 people get to go. Thanks - just need to know what to tell my husband as my rebuttal when I suggest we book this to be our 2010 family vacation trip! Especially with today's economy - I also need to know what the deadline would be to cancel my reservation and get all of our money back.

P.S. Hubby and I went on a Big Red Boat cruise in 4/1991 on our Honeymoon. Can't recall any complaints about the ship or the trip in general!

Just a suggestion but, reserve 2 rooms (connecting), you can always cancel and get your monies back.

The wonderful AskTracy will be along shortly to answer your questions.

Just so you know, category 11 rooms will not connect. Also, if you have minors in either room, you must have an adult 21 or older in that room as well.

Changing your numbers is easier to do going down than going up. If you reserve now for 6 and then want to add one later, you may not be able to do so if capacities on the ship are full. What date this happens is anyone's guess. Provided there is space, you can add someone up until about 3 days prior to the cruise. Again, if the rooms fill up for capacity, lifeboat stations fill up for capacity or if you are adding a minor and the children's programming fills up, you will not be able to add them.

You can remove someone up until the final payment date (September 27, 2010) without any penalty. After that it will depend on the exact date of cancellation, but the minimum penalty would be the deposit and insurance if you purchased it.

If you can swing the deposit, I would recommend holding the reservations for the maximum you would want ($100 per person in categories 4-11). If you want to be able to put 4 in one room, you should let me know that on the request form.

OK I am going to book this time. I am excited about this cruise because it will be my first cruise :woohoo: Will anyone be staying at WDW before the cruise or after? I am thinking about staying before the cruise because the price will be cheaper for the rooms at WDW. Also, I can check out the decorations at the parks and other resorts before the cruise:santa:

First welcome nmoore. PCC 1.0 was our first cruise and we loved it. I'm sure you will to.

My company recently starting a mandatory shutdown during the Christmas Holiday. The last two weeks of December. It's either :yay: or :eek:

With the exception of coming in a day early for PCC 2.0, my resort stay will be all post coming home on Wednesday 12/22. That is the current plan anyway.

My Birthday is December 14th, We can have a drink together. I will have copious drinks to celebrate your birthday if you will for mine. Where did the drinking smiley go?

I am so excited :banana::banana::banana::banana: I put down the deposit!!!!!

I even told my husband last night that for my birthday in 2010 we were going on a Cruise!!! :boat:With 500 hundred friends we haven't met yet!!! :grouphug: He gave that kind of sick smile and said Okay. I have a year to indoctrinate him, I'll start slowly. He was happy to hear about things like DATW and Drinking around the Ship. I made sure not to mention Karaoke :rockband: or Thriller, :dancer: I've got to ease him in.

Hello Neighbor! I live up in Stafford and am hoping to sign up for this cruise as soon as I can get together the deposit :rotfl: I would love to go on this cruise and meet so many wonderful Diser's and esp some from our state. Keeping my fingers crossed this all works out (I previously posted that I was signing up but then medical bills got in the way so will have to postpone signing up until next month).

I'm trying to talk DH into signing up for this. I wanted to show him what a great deal this was (in addition to being an amazing trip!), but I'm having trouble figuring out what the discount really is compared to a full price Disney cruise. :confused3 I tried pricing out the Dec 12, 2010 4-day cruise on Disney's site and got the same price as the pricing chart on here. Are the discounted cruises gone or did I do something wrong? Oh wise DIS cruisers, help me convince DH this is a bargain. :teacher:

Via the DU link I get $1,847.84 for 2 people in a Cat6 for the podcast cruise.

Did you remove insurance and transfers from the DCL quote? I booked a cat. 11, and DU's prices were the same as DCL's. The difference is that DCL's prices will go up, and I think DU's are guaranteed for awhile.

**Just checked DCL, and the $2123.84 price includes transfers ($138) and insurance ($138).

Appreciate your response.

Oh, I guess it might help if I said what I was comparing:
3 pple (2 adults, 1 child) in a Cat 9 or 10.

As I read the DU price chart, the staterooms and the taxes/fees are the only things included in the PCC 2.0 price. On Disney's site, if I decline the trip insurance and ground transportation (to see just stateroom & fees), they are the same price. The discount was kind of the clincher for convincing DH (he's not sure he would like a cruise). I'll have to see what I can do in still convincing him.
Did I just miss booking while DU still had group-discounted staterooms avail?

The pricing is not discounted through us it is guaranteed that the price won't increase while we have the group space. Why everyone is saying this is a great deal is because the price is low for a Disney Cruise (we picked one of the lowest priced dates in the year). In addition to the cruise, you will get all the special perks from the Podcast Team. We are not charging anything more for all of this.

We still have group space and will until at least August 1 (yes, that's only 8 days away). Your deposit is completely refundable on categories 4-11 up until September 27, 2010 so why not hold the space now while we've got it. Feel free to email me with any questions.

Thank you!
