Looks like the new NCL Epic and RCCL's Liberty of the Seas will also be sailing out of Barcelona in 2011.

Yep, and also the Carnival Magic. Their rates are about 50% less than DCL too, at least NCL and Carnival. RCCL has not released their rates yet.

We were very happy with the news. We cruise DCL and NCL on alternating years. But next year we get to sail the Dream in May and the Epic in October. :banana:

DCL has one more port than NCL so that may help.

We got a suite on the Epic for less than a balcony on DCL and we love the suite perks on NCL.

It will be interesting to see if the prices on DCL remain where they are; they may run the kids sail free again if they have difficulty filling the ship.
