I am scared because of the weather we had on 3.0 (cold and WINDY!). I am afraid of the risk I take in booking a trip at this time. Was that completely unusual, or is there a decent chance the weather could be like that again in the Carribbean?

Also, for those of you who have transfered to 4.0 from 3.0, have you found the pricing to be cheaper, the same, or more?

Thanks so much everyone!!
Hi KimStaR...I think I remember you from 2.0....I jumped ship to 4.0 after doing some research..I'm not very good in the high heat, and the thought of going in June concerned me...I found out that the Carribbean is somewhat warmer than the Bahamas...I think I saw that the average temperature in December was around 80..that works for me. For our group, 4.0 turned out to be cheaper for us...we are a family of 4 this time.

Would love to have you on this cruise, so if you decide to jump ship....then Welcome.

Hello Fellow Cruisers !!! I got back yesterday....the weather was great...92 every day, except for the last one...it was 94. No Rain...and beautiful clear skys....I got a little sun burn, but not enough to worry about...I'm a huge pin collector...and there was this one pin that I've been searching for, for over 3 years now.....I finally found it on Friday, at EPCOT...I was thrilled. Now, I can take them off my lanyard, and start another series to hunt down....it was frustrating, but I really enjoyed the hunt !!!

Welcome back! I am a little concerned that it will be humid by the time we get down there in 4 weeks. If it is 90 and not humid then I am okay.

Welcome back! I'm glad you had a great trip, but low to mid 90s in April is TOO hot for me! I'll be there 2 weeks from now, and I hope it cools off a bit.

Hey Hey. Thank you for your response. Still undecided, but leaning towards 3.0 I think. I want it to definitely be nice and warm and not cool or cold at all, and it seems the consensus is Florida, and Castaway have a chance of being cool... and althought it would be super to try the new Itin... I don't want to risk not having a nice HOT vacay! Still thinking though... Thanks again!

Absolutely, I'm a (possible) Cruise Newbie

Hi All,

This may be the wrong thread, so I apologize in advance if I've highjacked it. (Feel free to redirect me or I'll gladly start a new thread.)

I'm exploring the idea of going on a cruise, but, I am an obsessive planner and I'm hoping the boards can assist me with cruise planning as much as it has helped with WDW planning.

I've never been on cruise or even researched the option before. Price wise, how will/does the 2012 Fantasy Podcast Cruise 4.0 compare against direct booking or other cruises.

Thanks in advance!

On Disney you won't find a difference in pricing between different TA's or directly from Disney. So send a request for a quote for this cruise by filling out the information at this page

There are no additional costs involved with booking through a travel agency. DCL does not allow travel agents to charge more or less for their product.

If you are interested in participating in the Podcast 4.0 events, you must book through Dreams Unlimited Travel.

Frankie, if you want to cruise on the Fantasy and you want to go in December, book with Dreams Unlimited and join us on PCC 4.0.
Cruise prices vary by season and type of cabin. Price for PCC 4.0 is not "special", but there will likely be "special" events and treats. (John or Kevin, correct me if I am wrong)

If you want general cruise info, read and post questions on the cruise forum thread. Lots of great help there!

I have to respectfully disagree with the statement that the price for the Podcast cruises are not special. Group pricing is lower than the regular prices offered by cruise lines.

I just now compared pricing on disneycruise.com and the podcast cruise booking engine. For 2 adults is a Catagory 11A on the December 8, 2012 Fantasy sailing, the price on the podcast cruise booking engine was $300 lower than the price quote on disneycruise.com

I personally feel that a $300 savings on a vacation is great. Also, if you take any DIS experiences into account......I'd say a DIS cruise is pretty special, in both experience and value.
