Not sure if this was one of the crappy itineraries of which you speak.....but I think most thought it was great.

Maybe DCL is not the cruise line for you.
Kevin, I'm referring specifically to the Magic and Wonder's fall 2013 itineraries - where DCL could've done so much more. I also made an exception for group cruises - which are fun on any ship/itinerary due to the nature of the cruise. But unless DCL lowers their prices BEFORE the final payment date or uses a little more of that imagination they have for the theme parks when developing itineraries - my Disney cruises will be solely group cruises.

Gotcha!

Good thing there are many cruise companies to choose from.

I think DCL cemented their place in peoples hearts on this last cruise with the way they handled the medical emergency.

Sometimes the things you least expect turn out to be the most important.

We decided not to re-book. While I totally understand that we would have gotten a much better deal that way, we (ok mostly my husband) weren't ready to commit to another cruise - yet. Even though I understand that you can easily change your cruise dates, we aren't sure when we'll cruise again. Probably not for a few years. I thought the cruise would be relaxing and had fantasies of our children spending every waking moment in the children's programs so Tom and I could vacation. In reality my daughter loved the Kids Clubs but our 2 boys did not (which is a commentary on my boys and not a reflection of the wonderful programming at the kids clubs!). Which meant we still spent most of the vacation trying to find ways to entertain them (not that it was hard but it was all so new to us that it took a few days to pick the right things). I think as they get older this will get easier. Surprisingly some of our best vacation days were the 3 days we spent in a Cabin at Fort Wilderness after the cruise.
Please don't think I'm complaining or saying we had a bad time. We loved the cruise!!! We just weren't yet ready to commit to another one in 2012 or 2013. I still wonder if I shouldn't have booked a dummy date...

It was my first Disney cruise and my boyfriends 2nd. We both booked another cruise while onboard! I booked 2 rooms and now my parents and my sons are coming with us for PCC 4.0! And we have another cruise booked for the following year in December. It really is a good deal to book onboard, and you can keep changing your dates, it saves hundreds of dollars, plus you get the onboard credit too!
