I was hoping for both Greece and Venice too! DS has been saying he wants to go to Venice for as long as I can remember. He really liked the idea of Greece though too (another Percy Jackson fan!). When I showed DH the itinerary I was planning to book, he asked if DS knew I was booking the one that did NOT go to Venice. As a matter of fact, when presented with the two options, DS picked Greece.

We did the June 29th 10 night Med last summer and were hoping for more different ports for 2013. But I am still really excited! I think the 12 night will be a great length since we were crazy busy on the 10 night last year.

We are booked for this cruise as well. Me(Deb), DH(Alex) and DD(Nicki) who will be 15 next summer.

Can't believe we are up to 7 pages already. I remember some of your names from the 7/18/07 Med cruise. Since then, we have done Mexico, Alaska and just got back from a 5 nighter over the holidays on the Dream.

I guess I was a little confused to see people booked yesterday thru DVC and DCL. I was on hold this morning for an hour. Can anyone let me know. Thanks.

Gold and platinum Castaway Club members (those with more than five cruises) could book yesterday by phone. Everyone else could start booking today. Looks like you had more than 5 cruises so you could have booked yesterday.

Looked today and there were NO inside staterooms left so it would have cost quite a bit to wait!

Thanks for the info. Wish I would have known yesterday... Should have checked out this board. Oh well... I did notice that the price has gone up considerably since this morning, is this like the airlines, so many cabins at 1 price and then it goes up to the next level?

Hi Deb - we were on the 7/18/07 Med - what a great trip that was - and our first time in Barcelona and that area of the world. One thing we learned that trip was to be sure to fly in a couple of days early or you'll totally miss the departure port, so we're planning to fly in on Thursday before sailing on Saturday if all goes well. We saw a little bit of Barcelona when we were there before ... enough to know we wanted to see more! When we did the Baltic in 2010, we spent a few days pre-cruise in London and that was so nice to have a chance to get over the jet-lag. With this itinerary, the very next day is a port day, so we want to be on Mediterranean time by the time we sail!

I calculated my vacation time accrual and will be able to make this trip plus the other days we have scheduled off already and return to work with one hour and 45 minutes of vacation time left Guess I'd better try to accrue some comp time in the next 505 days!

As for prices, this sailing is up quite a bit above the following one to Venice - and having booked on points, the adult price today is $1,600+ more than what DVC had for the same category.

It's me, DH, DD (11), DD (7) and DM and perhaps DSD (25). We did the 11 nt. med in 2011 with my DMIL so now it's my mom's turn. DH and I did Greece a few years ago and DD (11) wants to see Greece due to the Percy Jackson book series that she loves.
Tell your daughter she has great taste in books! I totally love the Percy Jackson books. Is she reading the new ones?

We will have to compare notes on board. We may know some of the same people

Yay .. I get to cruise with my table mates from the Baltic! Can't wait. Would be nice if Jeff joined us. Saw that Kent told Heather that her family has to book it as well! Maybe I should email Heidi!!

Take care all ... 505 days to go!!!

After 3 hours of trying to book online, on the phone with DCL and then DVC.. DVC came through with the 2 staterooms we needed!! We were one cruise short of that shinny gold status

Cruising with me are DH, DS-4, DS-9, DS-11, & my mom & dad (sorry not that up on the lingo)

There are now some inside staterooms up but they are a good bit higher since yesterday. I did get the 10% off for moving an onboard booking though

I don't know about y'all, but I'm looking forward to repeating some of the ports from before - Villefranche was (and is still) my favorite port in terms of beauty - and I'm looking forward to seeing more of the area. La Spezia - before we did Pisa, this time we'll do Florence / surrounding area. Civitavecchia - well you'll hear me often say I didn't toss those coins in the Trevi Fountain for nothing! Can't wait to see more of Rome.

505 more days!
Yep, 7/18/07 and 7/6/10, so we did both with you! Seems we both have good taste in cruises


I am looking forward to repeating ports too, and we also booked the 7 nighter before it (hoping it works out and we can do both) so that our days aren't so crazy. Last time my kids were 3yo and 11 months and it was exhausting to have so many 12 hour days. Plan this time is to hit something on the 7 night, then different excursion on this cruise. Kids will be 9, 6, and 3 this time, so better, but the (then) 3yo can be a HANDFUL when she wants to be. Plus we're coming from AZ this time, so planning on some serious jet lag (10.5 hour flight for us from Phoenix to London!, after the 2 hour drive to Phoenix, then another 2 hour flight to Barcelona), so really hoping to be able to relax and get acclimated before the new ports on this cruise!

I am soooooo glad to have 4 sea days! I'm not sure it matters what the kids ages are....it's exhausting no matter what to repeat those 12-hour days! (tho having only one, I can't image how you did 3...)

We're really happy to be returning to Villefranche, as this was the surprise favorite from last time! And, at our daughter's request, we'll do Pisa instead of Cinque Terrre! No idea what we'll do in Malta, but we really liked it last time. It was so hot in August, though, hence the June booking!

Can't wait!

We'll be joining- DH, myself, and DD (age 4). We'll be celebrating my husband's graduation from residency and our 7th wedding anniversary! We love the DISboards community on the cruises; hope we get to do FEs!
