Everyone's Plan of Action for 2014 Release Dates

After reading all of the great prices from the 2013 release date threads (and I could kick myself because my friends just putzed around and wouldn't commit until the prices went up)...what's everyone planning on booking once DCL releases the 2014 dates and itineraries?

Do you have a specific ship, itinerary, time of year already mapped out? or just play it by ear if you find a great deal?

I'm so stressed right now because I'm afraid I'm going to miss it, and my daughter is having minor surgery tomorrow and I'm afraid I'll forget to check disboards and miss the release (I'm going a little coo coo this week).

If there's someone out there that is always on top of the release info and wouldn't mind texting me, I don't PM'ing my phone number.

Thanks, and happy sailing!!!!

3 more months till our Fantasy Western Caribbean!!!!!!!!

strategy is to try and book another summer Fantasy cruise with hopes that opening day /hours prices are better than what they jumped up to for this summer ... or to sail a classic ship on a NEW, i.e., DIFFERENT caribbean itinerary.

Unfortunately for me, we are constrained by school schedules and the more unique specialty cruises are usually out of the question schedule wise.

Yep Our TA knows to move our 2 dummy dates to March & Aug 2014 on the Fantasy. I'm willing to change the Aug cruise if there's a southern cruise or even a cruise out of Miami that includes Jamaica, I'll take it!

Our priority is a Southern Caribbean if there is one. We can travel any time as we don't have kids. However if DCL doesn't have a Southern then I am probably going to book Carnival in March 2014 to do a Southern!

After that, a Canada cruise out of NYC if they are being offered. Third choice would be Xmas 2014.

1--HAWAII

3--Mexican Riviera (were these stopping in Puerto Vallarta??) would love to combine a Disney cruise with hopes of an excursion to Marieta Islands and the hidden beach! I know they aren't doing these any more after this year but ill cross my fingers...

My plan is to book as soon as I can. Right now looking at a 7 night Western Caribbean from PC sometime in January or February. I homeschool, so we can be super flexible with dates!
