Unless there is something really intriguing, I am planning on a trip to Europe in 2014 (maybe ABD - if I can get over the price).

We just did a Canadian on the Magic. Will do the Fantasy in Feb. A big family gathering on NCL Gem in Summer 2013. We may be all cruised out. Will prob skip DCL until 2015
I got an email today too. I definitely will not be changing my cruise but would like to plan for my onboard booking for 2014!

Got our e-mail from Dan at DU today. Definitely not changing our 2013 dates to 2014 ( have already waited long enough, not waiting another year!), but definitely want to get another one planned for 2014.

I didn't get this email from my TA from DU either. I am gold and have a current ressie with them. I get fast responses from my TA, but I feel like I am bothering her when I ask a question.

I am anxiously awaiting 2014 also. I am a huge planner and want to get something on the books already!

I didn't either but then I never feel my TA at DU has been helpful. For 2014 I am hoping the dates are released while I am on board the dream so I can do an OBB without having to change the dates.

Not to get off the topic, but I see a lot of people mentioning DU. Why do you use them versus just booking directly with DCL? We've gotten used to just booking directly with the cruise line (usually Princess and NCL) and have cut out the middle man. Just curious if you get anything special by using the TA.

They offer an onboard credit.

DU usually gives a larger OBC than booking directly with DCL. The OBC they offer is hundreds more typically.

I am so sorry this is the impression your agent has given you.

Please feel free to email me at John@DreamsUnlimitedTravel.com and maybe there is something I can do to help with the situation.

I've been around here for about a month and have seen DU mentioned and their ads. I thought nothing of it since my MIL paid for this trip through a timeshare. All I have to say is after THIS response, if we ever do anything Disney again, I WILL be using DU. THIS is great CS!

And now back to 2014......

I honestly checked their site because I figured I use their boards a lot, lol. I did double check with my TA friend and she couldn't match. I went with Beth on a referral from the boards and she has been great (though I'm sure they all are).

Thank you very much, I appreciate your offer. Kelsie (who is not the agent I was referring to) already messaged me.

edited to add: And, I feel compelled to add, the agent I referred to did get in touch with me after Kelsie connected us and apparently DCL didn't give her my rebooking info. It doesn't change how I feel about the past (or about not getting a Dreams email today about the itineraries) but if she doesn't have the info from Disney about my new cruise, then I can't expect her to contact me about it.

So when the new dates are released, crossing fingers for very soon, if you have a dummy date booked and want to move it...what is the best course of action? Call the CC # and hope to get a real person who can get you a room on the cruise you want before the rates hit the roof?

I'm so glad I checked this thread today. I rarely check my email, but did after reading that some of you were getting emails from your TA's. I checked to see if I got one from my TA and sure enough I did. I emailed her back all my requests. So now we have to wait...

Thanks for posting.

I didn't get an email today from my agent at Dreams, either.

Hoping for NYC in 2014!
