Any chance of different Carribbean ports for 2014? Years back there was a Puerto Rico port but b/c of a hurricane we couldn't go. Would like to go on another 7 night out of Florida but have been to most or all of the ports Disney is offering now.

Hope we find out soon!!!! I know it's crazy but even booking 2014 and it being so far out there we all get so excited.

Sometimes the opening day is only open for platinum and gold CC members and opens for silver and the general public a day or two later. It depends on the itineraries.

Me too. That was my first request to our Ta for moving our dummy date...if available. If not, then I guess we are off to the Caribbean again.

My DH thinks it was about the money. in a two week period, you can have 2-5 night and 1-4 night. In the same two weeks you can fit an extra cruise if you are doing the 2-4 night and 2-3 night model. Their fares are not necessarily any more for the extra cruise, because the 5 night has always been unexpectedly high per person per night but that extra set of people in the thousands, is going to spend a lot more onboard than the people who are already on the ships. Shutters sells more packages, the shops sell more souvenirs, the spa sees new people - you name it there is an entire ship more worth of purchases in that two weeks.

San Juan is being offered for some sailings beginning this Nov. thru March or April.

No one knows if they will add new ports or not for 2014.

Rumor is it could be Jamaica. There is a ghost ship scheduled for the early part of 2014.

I'm keeping my hope alive that they will go back to Alaska in 2014. Maybe I should stop hoping, but until the dates come out I'm going to hope! We actually just put a week on my dad's calendar so he wouldn't schedule anything over it, and if you can believe it we're having a hard time getting a free week for him in the summer of 2014.

Makes sense. They also need to consider how they are losing guests who are sick of the Same ole Carib and Bahamas itineraries.

Last I heard, release date was October 14. It may have changed but that is what I heard on board in August.
