I am hoping for a 7 night Eastern on the Fantasy during our Spring Break (March 30th), or a Hawiian during the summer. What do you think my chances are???

We will be on the Fantasy September 29, 2012. We booked about when they opened bookings. It was just under $3,000 for two in a cat. 5c. Not sure how much more for the two kids.

But my aunt is on the fence and I doubt we will convince her to book until the very last minute or she will book and then cancel. So that leaves my sister in a bad spot. She is on a very tight budget and definitely can't afford pay the fee for a single person. There is really no else for her to room with other than me, my husband, and our 6 year old son. If my aunt doesn't go then we want her bunk with us. So what do we do when the booking opens up to ensure she can get the best price possible in either case? I don't want to add her later and lose the original booking prices.

Can we do this?

Book a room for 2 for my sister and aunt hoping my aunt doesn't back out? And also add a 3rd adult to our booking? Who's name do we put down? Can once person be booked in 2 different rooms?

thanks
We went through this in 2009 with our Aunt too. We booked the two rooms by putting our daughter in her room so as not to get the single rate, even though my daughter planned on bunking with us. When she cancelled, we moved her into our room. It was very risky though because we could have ended up paying a larger premium since prices had gone up. Only thing that saved us was her cancellation was for medical reasons and Disney moved my daughter without penalty.

My suggestion would be to book a room with the aunt, your sister AND your 6-year-old. That way if the aunt cancels, you sister won't be paying the single premium. Your son can sleep in your room, but he'll be on their reservation. If the aunt doesn't cancel, then it's a win-win.

If you wait to see if the aunt cancels and try to add another person to the party, you'd have to pay that day's going prices.

Hmmm, where did you find that information. I hope it's just a rumor for those that are looking for Med/Europe cruises. Time will tell. I hope the time goes quickly for all of us.

Thanks Eva...that's kind of what I was thinking.

It came from a couple of friends in the travel industry. HOWEVER, they did state that these are not confirmed and they consider them "rumors" for now. Although someone posted on one of the threads that a crew member told them Disney is not going to the Med or Europe in 2013.

I have heard that they aren't going to the Med/Europe. Which probably means I will cancel the "dummy booking" I currently have. I have an agent pricing what I want on another line now. Price is probably cheaper, sure I am giving up the "credit" but not much else so....

I was looking forward to a MED in 2013-oh well.

Will all the ships do Caribbean? Maybe they are just going to release Dream & Fantasy dates? I realy thought they'd make Hawaii permanent...since it sells out so fast!

and just to keep it balanced we were told on the Magic this summer (in the Med) that they would be returning to the Med in 2013. We won't know anything until they announce the 2013 dates....

Not very good. I am a little confused on your March 29th date, so will assume you are looking at March 30. I want an Eastern on March 16, but am pretty sure it will be the western. If that is the case, yours will also be the western.

If I remember correctly, when they released the 2010 schedule in 2008 - they released the itineraries first then started booking a couple days later. Did they do that with the 2011/2012 schedules?

I'm hoping they do that for 2013 so I can look at what is possible and then let my TA know what to book for me.

I wasn't here when they released the 2011 dates, but that is what they did for the 2012 schedules released in 2010.

If they're only releasing dates for the Caribbean, then that means it's only going to be for the Fantasy... one out of four ships?! I hope they at least get the stuff for the Dream (Bahamas) up soon as well.

I really wish they would do a Caribbean cruise with a stop in Nassau, like Royal Caribbean. It would be nice to have a longer cruise, but our main thing is that we want to go to Atlantis.

What about the Magic and the Wonder? Are they doing more Alaska/Mexico cruises? No Mediterranean means they'll go... somewhere else? Hawaii? Maybe Asia or Oceania? I can't wait to see what they'll do.
