The placement of the ships and the pricing makes me think that Disney Parks is trying to keep the people near WDW. Those who are thinking a Disney Cruise but are priced out can go over to WDW and those who can afford the DCL prices can also go to WDW.

But the DCL prices I have seen quoted do not seem competitive to the family cruise market. And this is coming form on of DCL's biggest advocates...

Would love for them to so a sailing like the NCL Dawn! Plus, Tampa is closer to home and has more of what we like, vs Miami!

Many cruise lines ships winter in FL and move on to other ports in the summer and fall.
Ah and the classics don't have the dates past May yet right? Still 2 ships in the summer there?

I live a stone's throw from the Tampa port so would love that... buuuuuuuuuuuuut

Is there a pier available or are t hey all "owned" by CCL, RCCL, HAL and NCL? Also... I've heard rumors they may be moving the port to Clearwater (to accomodate larger ships)

Looks like our New Years on the fantasy will be out of the question. Trying to convince everyone to go on mid August. But DW now wants to go on a 4n dream and then it the parks... Ugh...

I'm still stunned that the Dream and the Magic are doing identical itineraries! Way to "shake it up" Disney!

Has anyone seen any special sailings for the Magic, like a double dip? Or is it just the same old same old 3 and 4 days? That's all I've read about, but was hoping I might be wrong.

They depart on different days. The 3-night cruises are Thursday - Sunday (Dream) and Friday - Monday (Magic). The 4-night cruises are Sunday - Thursday (Dream) and Monday - Friday (Magic). Naturally - cruises on the Magic cost less.

We booked New Years on the Fantasy for 2013 when prices were first released (12/28 Eastern). With the 10% OBB, price was $5,565 - CHEAPEST stateroom on baord. I have to think it will be higher this year given the summer pricing. My guess is that the price will be comparable to mid-summer pricing.

But you never know whats in store. You may be able to do New Years on the Magic for less. Just depends on where they take her. So, the waiting begins . . . AGAIN!
