It would be incredible to do 2 weeks on the Wonder followed by 2 weeks on the Magic (or the other way around). And they can't fill either ship.

Poor scheduling. Oh well......
Thanks for the heads up about this cruise. That info pushed me to move my Transatlantic reservation to a dummy date in 2014 while I play DCL's price drop game.

Just for fun I looked now and only found IGT rates available but for less than 2400$ for two people - including taxes! I am not sailing this year but if something like this peeps up in 2014, I am SO THERE! Has anyone else found VGT or OGT rates still available? You guys in FL are so lucky you can get your special rates, too!
I just now checked (9:00 a.m. central time), and there are still OGT and VGT fares available.

Ratzzle-Frazzle!

Well, ratzle-frazzle! We're already booked on a DCL Galveston cruise that includes WDW and Key West (a bucket list item) in May. And we went with a different cruise line for our Panama Canal cruise in 2014 because Disney was so expensive.

Maybe we'll change our cruising habits and quit booking so far in advance, at least for the longer cruises where it's more likely *GV cabins may become available.

With the decrease in OBC for gold and platinum, the benefit of early booking is rapidly diminishing. I'm seeing way more negatives than positives to my feeble attempts at planning ahead.

Wow! Our family of 4 in a VGT is $5000. So tempting! Any one have a picture of the possible "white wall" on the verandah? Wondering how bad it would be to get one of those cabins. Thanks!

I'm not thinking it can be that bad Monika. It has been a while since we have been on the classic ships, and even then it was in a full veranda, but I remember the hole on those Navigator Veranda's as being pretty large.

Val & I are on a 7-night Eastern on the Fantasy in just a couple of weeks and we went with the VGT for that one also. Still waiting to see what we got.

BTW, I understand that there may be military rates offered as well. You may want to check that out.
