Agreed. I guess the problem is they backed themselves into a corner here. If they came out with more reasonable/competitive prices for 2014, everyone would be switching out of their 2013 cruises and they would have to significantly discount the 2013 cruises to fill them or risk them sailing half-empty. However, I find it hard to believe they really prefer this strategy of holding the line on these astronomical prices and filling up to 2/3 of the ship and then relying on offering heavy "last-minute" discounts to fill the remianing 1/3+ (i'm making the numbers up, but you get the idea).

Wow - Spring Break 2013 might be our last cruise on Disney for a while if these prices play out. Yikes!

My thinking is that the prices are a reflection of the current economy, not so much a strategy to hurt the customer

DCL is a business juat trying to make it like other businesses out there.

That said I am also in sticker shock as well

Would love another DVC special like they offered this past summer

There's only been a couple of examples given so far, but it seems that the Western itineraries with Jamaica seem to be priced higher than the other sailings.

The more I'm thinking about this the more I'm leaning towards taking my 2013 dummy and making it a 2014 dummy and seeing what 2015 brings. Once I include airfares, transfers, and everything else I'm looking at over 10K. That's just not acceptable.

Just changed an existing reservation from 2013 to 2014 -

March 15, 2014 2 Adults, no ins, no transfers $2,810.30. This does include the on board discount since I booked this cruise on the ship.

2013 price was $2,865.04, so a bit cheaper to book 2014.

I also tried to book two other dates of May 24, and May 31 and they do not have that information right now. I will need to call back later. She did tell me that they have some information on cruises in June, but the dates in May I wanted are not available yet on the Fantasy.

And of course, that's what I want. Oh well, I'll wait on our price tomorrow and will probably book it with a minimum deposit and then give it A LOT of thought before 2014.

That was the reason that the agent I talked to gave for the price being higher in July than April. From what I have seen; however, Jamaica isn't all that as ports go. Also, the eastern 7/26 is only $45.00 less than the jacked up western price 7/19. I think that they just set the summer rates were the 2013s started so they wouldn't lose a bunch of 2013 reservations based on the price difference.

3/1/2014 - 7nt Western 2A/1C(14), 10% OBB, No Insurance, No Transfers
8C $3,434.25
8A $3,484.65
5C $3,736.65
4D $3,938.25
6/14/2014 - 7nt Eastern 2A/1C(14), 10% OBB, No Insurance, No Transfers
8C $4,721.46
8A $4,822.26
5C $5,811.36
4D $6,063.36

For comparison of other cruises we're looking at that week in March:
RCCL - Independence 8nt Eastern (from FLL w/ St. Maarten, St. Kitts, San Juan, Haiti): D1 balcony room = $3,699.13

HAL - Westerdam 7nt Eastern (from FLL w/ Grand Turk, San Juan, St. Maarten, Half Moon Cay): VF balcony room = $3,037.98

NCL - Dawn 7nt Western (from TPA w/ Honduras, Belize, Costa Maya, Cozumel): MA mini-suite = $2,614.82

Celebrity - Silhouette 7nt Easter (from FLL w/ San Juan, St Kitts, St Maarten): Concierge Class balcony = $3,502.58

Princess - Crown 7nt Southern (from FLL w/ Princess Cay, Curacao, Aruba): ME mini-suite = $3,877.00

The RCCL, HAL and Celebrity rooms would be about 20 sq ft smaller than a classic DCL room, NCL about the same size and Princess bigger.
The prices for the DCL cruise I think are what I expected for March (it is about $300 more than we are spending in October), but there are many options out there for different itineraries and lower or equal prices and you'd get a balcony or even an extra night in the case of the RCCL cruise. We'll be thinking this one over.
