We did Barbados on the Wonder 10-day cruise in 2006. We really enjoyed that port (more than we thought we would). The island tour was terrific and we had a lot of fun.

I'm in agreement with the PP, I don't mind them staying in the Caribbean, but PLEASE mix it up a bit. There are so so many ports in Eastern and Western Caribbean that Disney hasn't even touched upon yet. Geez, besides Turks & Caicos, there are the following (all of which I have seen on other cruise lines itineraries):

Anguilla
Antigua
Aruba
Barbados
Belize
Jamaica
Martinique
Puerto Rico (back to San Juan again would be great)
St. Barts
St. Kitts
St. Lucia
Trinidad & Tobago

Disney, pleeeeze, give us 5 or 6 new ports on the Eastern and Western. Some of these may require 8 or 10 day cruises, which would be fantastic! I'm ready

I'm thinking about booking a cruise when the 2014 dates & itineraries come out. If for some reason I need to cancel the reservation prior to 75 before the cruise (which I think is the time frame for non-conceriege/suites), would I get a complete refund? What if I need to change the date of the cruise? Can I just transfer my reservation over to that date assuming there was availability and keep the same rate or would I need to cancel the original and start over again using the current rates?

I'm interested in this also. We haven't even done our first cruise yet but I wouldn't mind booking something for then in case we like it!

We enjoyed St. John more than Halifax....we hired a taxi for $50 an hour right at the port and got the sweetest "little old man", Gerry, who is a local and has been giving people tours for the last 17 years since ships have been visiting St. John's. There were 6 of us in a minivan. He took us to the coolest places...we originally said 4 hours but we went over 5 hours...he was great and our experience in St. John was so much better than Halfiax (loved Peggy's Cove, though). Loved the caves in St. John. He even stopped at the Harley Davidson shop for our friend who wanted to pick up a t-shirt. He stopped whereever we wanted and also offered to show us his favorite spots. He took us to the reversing falls twice...once at low tide and once when the tide was higher so we could see the difference.

Personally I would love one of the ships to go back to NYC - had a cruise booked this year and had to cancel.

Other than that I would love to see Southern Caribbean ports - maybe have one of the older ships dock at PC/Miami and do alternate 10 day Southern/4 night Bahamas cruises.

If you cancel prior than 75 days out and have not booked any restricted fares or concierge then you will get a full refund of your deposit.

In case you need to change the date of your cruise then the new cruise will be booked for the current rate which is valid on the day you do the change! Your deposit will be transfered to the new booking and if the new booking requires more deposit you have to pay the difference of course.

Hope that helps!

My husband and I went to Alaska from Seattle this past June. Loved it. Don't think they will be going out of Seattle again. There was not enough time in the ports. We are planning on going back in Sept 2014 only out of Vancouver.

I followed the link but it doesn't say where the ships will be. What am I doing wrong?

It is a link to the St Marteen port schedule, if you forward to 2014 you can see the Fantasy will be there every second Tuesday, but does not show where else it will go. usually St. Marteen is part of the Eastern Caribbean cruises.
