Since I am already booked on the podCast cruise, I'd rather stay on that cruise. There will be plenty of Panama Canal cruises (likely 2 or more each year), but a 7 day podCast cruise on the Fantasy has never happened before.

Have you ever been through the PC? It's fabulous ... just as is Alaska. I will go back to PC and Alaska ... and am not bound by specific dates.

I would not hold too much faith in previous itineraries. Given the unrest within Mexico (and hence, DCL's pulling out), they may not want to make as many stops in Mexico. On our EB PC, we stopped in Aruba, and Cartegena ... the first time DCL ever stopped at those islands. Both were nice ... and I would return to see them again ... pretty much ... similar feeling after being in the Caribbean.

Have you ever on a Trans Atlantic Cruise? We were afraid we'd be bored at sea ... but that was the best part. I'd have NO PROBLEMS with 10 days IN A ROW at sea (straight, no excursions).

Enjoy!

I agree about the Podcast cruise on the Fantasy, and have decided to keep this one!

I haven't cruised through the Panama Canal, but I have cruised to Alaska and loved it. Right now I'm booked on a cruise through the Suez Canal in 2013, but I'm not 100% sure I'll actually go on it.

I agree ... would LOVE to go further south ... Miami would be ideal!

I have been on three non-DCL Transatlantic cruises, and two of them had six and five sea days in a row, respectively. That was as many sea days in a row as I care to handle! I chose two of them for the great itineraries, and the third for a combination of nice ports and really low price. I prefer port days to sea days, but welcome sea days interspersed here and there between busy port days to rest.

Haven't done a PC cruise, yet. Either PC cruise or Dream Villas or All-Inclusive Resort [in US} in Dec 2013. Until DD finishes college, have to do Dec. Summer vacations are sooo expensive.

I am feeling good. Just tired all of the time. I am sick of the rain right now. But it is better than snow!

So I've heard many great things about the Palo brunch. Has anyone experienced it? Do you plan on doing it this cruise? How early can you make a reservation?

We did Palo brunch on PCC 1.0 (courtesy of Dreams) and it was wonderful!!! Really a spectacular meal. So many choices, and all of them good. Can't say enough good about it (could you tell?).

Reservations can be made at 75 days out if you are a first time or Silver CC member. Gold is at 90 days and Platinum at 105? days.

Jeff,

Not quite -

1st time cruisers can book at 74 days out
Silver at 90 days out
Gold 105 days out
Platinum 120 days out (they get Palo free!)

We've done Palo dinner 3 times & brunch once. Both were great! I think I enjoyed dinner more, but am very glad we did brunch & would do it again

That's the question I'm tossing around now. Do we try to do the brunch, dinner, or both.
