. October 11, 25, 2014
. November 8, 22, 2014
. December6, 20 2014

Now for the changes.

We noticed that once again the Jamaica port calendar has changed. There will be the same unknown ship, that turned out to be the Wonder, every other week starting May 14. We also noticed that the Grand Cayman schedule has also changed. The Magic is no longer on the port calendar. Instead, only the Fantasy and Wonder will make calls on Grand Cayman. We are seeing the Disney Wonder on the port calendar twice a month between January and April. This would be the schedule we would expect if the Magic were continuing her schedule at the end of 2013.

With the changes to the Jamaica calendar, we anticipate that the Disney Fantasy will pick up Jamaica on Western Caribbean sailings between May and December.

Here is our prediction. The Disney Wonder will move from Galveston back to Miami at the beginning of January. She will then alternate 4 and 5 night sailings much the same as what the Magic is set to do at the end of 2013. We predict a schedule like this:

. January 10, 2014 - 5 Night Western (Grand Cayman & Cozumel)
. January 15, 2014 - 4 Night Bahamas (Key West & Castaway Cay)
. January 19, 2014 - 5 Night Western (Cozumel & Castaway Cay)
. January 24, 2014 - 5 Night Western (Grand Cayman & Cozumel)
. January 29, 2014 - 4 Night Bahamas (Key West & Castaway Cay)
. February 2, 2014 - 5 Night Western (Cozumel & Castaway Cay)
. February 7, 2014 - 5 Night Western (Grand Cayman & Cozumel)
. February 12, 2014 - 4 Night Bahamas (Key West & Castaway Cay)
. February 16, 2014 - 5 Night Western (Cozumel & Castaway Cay)
. February 21, 2014 - 5 Night Western (Grand Cayman & Cozumel)
. February 26, 2014 - 4 Night Bahamas (Key West & Castaway Cay)
. March 2, 2014 - 5 Night Western (Cozumel & Castaway Cay)
. March 7, 2014 - 5 Night Western (Grand Cayman & Cozumel)
. March 12, 2014 - 4 Night Bahamas (Key West & Castaway Cay)
. March 16, 2014 - 5 Night Western (Cozumel & Castaway Cay)
. March 21, 2014 - 5 Night Western (Grand Cayman & Cozumel)
. March 26, 2014 - 4 Night Bahamas (Key West & Castaway Cay)
. March 30, 2014 - 5 Night Western (Cozumel & Castaway Cay)
. April 4, 2014 - 5 Night Western (Grand Cayman & Cozumel)
. April 9, 2014 - 4 Night Bahamas (Key West & Castaway Cay)
. April 13, 2014 - 5 Night Western (Cozumel & Castaway Cay)
. April 18, 2014 - 5 Night Western (Grand Cayman & Cozumel)

After this we cannot predict what will happen since the ship is no longer on the port calendars.

That leaves the Disney Magic and this one is a big mystery. Will she stay in Miami or move to another port of call? We do think itīs possible she will stay in Miami and possibly alternate Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries. If she does this, we anticipate there will be different ports of call than the Disney Fantasy as we are not seeing the Disney Magic on either Grand Cayman or St. Maartenīs port calendars. She could also alternate 3 and 4 night sailings to the Bahamas or Key West. Itīs hard to say.

While we have no specific knowledge of a release date, we will suggest that this could be before Christmas since these itineraries are not dramatically different from what the ships are doing at the end of 2013. We donīt anticipate that the entire year will be released, but could see the first half at that time.
Thank you for posting this, but I have to say *yawn* DCL *yawn*.

Just more of the same. Really hoping that the Magic offers something more exciting!

I'm hoping that DCL will put a ship on the west coast, at least for a few cruises (besides Alaska). Since they are already coming to the west coast for the Alaska cruises, they could stick a couple of Pacific Coastal ones in, and maybe a Hawaii one, once in a while.

What would you like to see that would make it less yawn worthy?

We live close to Galveston. Any and all cruise ships can leave Cozumel, Costa Maya and the like off their schedules.

I have to admit though, I'm not crazy about Caribbean ports. I'd like to see something a little more grand.

ITA! If those itineraries turn out to be correct I'm sure we will see some "fire sale" pricing.

ITA...they may so well offer *GT rates now! How many times can DCL repeaters do the same itineraries over and over? Even if they depart from different home ports (NYC, Galveston, Miami, etc), they still have very little variation in port schedules between ships. Nothing they haven't offered in previous years times ten. They must be vying for new cruisers.

I understand those on the West Coast would want a ship based there, but they would have to come up with something better than the Mexican Riviera and, I'm sorry, but IMHO, their Alaskan itineraries sort of suck compared to other cruise lines.

Still holding out hope that the Magic does something cool instead of the Caribbean/Bahamas.

WHY on earth would they run all 4 ships out of FL? I think that sort of plan just might provoke some bargain sailing prices or KSF deals.

I live on the West Coast, and what I would like to see is, after the Alaska season, running a 7-day, "up-down-the-coast" cruise from Vancouver, BC, with overnights in San Francisco, a side trip to Catalina Island and ending up in San Diego or LA, through Christmas. It would pull in the snowbirds who need transportation to or from Vancouver and Seattle to the sun. Put together an "add-on" for Disneyland. For the worst part of winter, run a cruise roundtrip from San Francisco to Hawaii. Then, as it gets warmer in the spring, run one-ways between Vancouver and Hawaii until the Alaska season gets cooking again.

Also, now that the Wonder is headed for the East Coast, switch it out and send the Magic. It might be worth another round of Alaska if we could do it on a different ship.

I wonder if Disney regrets building two new ships instead of just one now.

I don't know about that but IMO, it sure seems like they are having creativity issues with planning itineraries for more than two ships.

It seems so odd to me that they're drawing out the announcement this late if they don't have anything new or exciting to offer. I can see the delay if they're putting together new and exciting itineraries, but for same old, same old?

At least for me it's looking like I won't have to feel so bad about 2014 being "the year we probably won't be able to cruise"!

I agree as I'm on the West Coast as well, but I would love some 3 - 5 day Roundtrips from LA with ports of San Diego, Catalina, San Francisco. I don't care which combination, but I don't want to pay for airfare with these 1 way trips up or down the coast.

I had heard rumors from the Cruise Baltic representative that they are trying to get Disney to come there in 2014. Maybe they're working out those details.

That would be great if it's true. The cast members were saying they didn't make money on the Baltic cruise.

I think that there are just not enough people willing to pull their kids out of school to fill 4 ships. Especially when DCL is offering the same old itineraries that most have already done numerous times. If they offer something new and different, it may encourage more people to sail during the school year.

I really wish DCL would do a sailing to Belize and Roatan from Galveston. The Carnival Magic does this itinerary. I would book that in a heartbeat.
