Hopefully we can do both, but if not the WBTA will win through. Plus ... how could we ever resist an action replay of the Painkiller Experience ... and this time not booking Palo dinner on Tortola night LOL.
I will never ever when cruise planning again, when on a WBTA or Eastern Caribbean cruise organise for my Palo night to be Tortola night

That was one day I'll never forget for good and bad reasons

To my table buddies 67/68/69, those Jimmy Choos that Stevie was to buy me for missing Palo that night appeared on christmas day

All I can say is thank goodness for Claire and Lee to the rescue so I wasn't dining alone or missing it completely

I need my coconut shrimp buddy Tony on the cruise with me

I was just having a look at the Villefranche dates for next year. DCL is really mixing it up. Last year was alternating 10 and 11 night med cruises from Barcelona to Valletta, Palermo, Naples, Civitavecchia, Ajaccio and Villefranche and then they changed in August to 7 night itineraries.

This really doesn't tie in with the dates posted on the port schedule, so it's definitely not going to be like last year. It looks like there may be shorter cruises and the big 12 day gaps may mean that they can go a bit farther afield???? Nip round to the eastern side of Italy instead of Civitavecchia and Naples ..... we can but live in hope.

If Gibraltar is scheduled for 14th October, then we are all assuming that we will be sailing on Saturday 12th October from Barcelona as per the last 2 WBTAs.

I have never done eastern med sailing before, but it must be at least a few days sailing from Venice to Gibraltar DCL have done 15 day cruises before

Come on DCL, you monitor the Boards, put us out of our misery pretty please

That would be cool - maybe a 15 day or a little more for a WBTA? (but more $ of course....)

Part of me wants DCL to know how excited we are. The other part doesn't want them to realize we are at 10 pages on a "possible" cruise so that they don't raise prices before we even get notified!

Sigh....I'm obsessing...

Hi all, myself (Tim) and DW Kerrie currently have a 7 night cruise booked on the Fantasy in Oct 2013 but think we would probably change it to do another WBTA

[QUOTE=auntlynne;43607529]

I had a strange dining situation on a Dream Cruise and met Susan and DH Scott when I joined other DISers for dinner. And they are scheduled for the October 2012 Hawaii cruise.

Hi Lynne..

we did the PC repo with lots of DISers too..so this will feel right at home..

only, I should be focused on the MR cruise on the Wonder in 10 days, or the Hawaii cruise is october 2012..but here I am...

I have a dummy cruised sitting out there for NOV12 and planned on moving it to 2013, all the while hoping for another WBTA. I did not do the WBTA in 2011 but was part of a wonderful group (many which also did the 2011) in 2010!!

forgot to add - for roll call purposes: MagicMe (aka Melodie) and flying solo so far.
Welcome Melodie, I will add you to the roll call on page 1.

I just keep a box in the spare bedroom and as I collect things I need for the cruise (eg: toiletries, fish extender gifts etc) I pop them in there until it's time to pack.

I need my coconut shrimp buddy Tony on the cruise with me

I tried and failed miserably to recreate the coconut shrimp with sweet chilli sauce at home the other night......we need to get them again & that fab curry!

We will definitely be doing JVD this time!!!

I still can't forget all that bloody food Lee ordered in Palo.

Hi Melodie .... great to see you on board so to speak .... what about Dave and Amy? I think Kimberly is interested too

That is true .... plus we can go there for a short break any time ... the flights are often cheaper than a train to London. But the thought of leaving or approaching Venice on the Disney Magic ... well that would be epic and sublime rolled into one.
