Was your sale fare offered AFTER the cancellation deadline? I honestly don't remember when our sale fare popped up, but it must have been before since they allowed me to change rooms. We moved from a verandah to the cat 12 - saved something like $8K!!
I think it was just after the paid-in-full date. I remember thinking that I was never going to be ready in time! But we kept it a secret from the girls. It was great fun - we did a scavenger hunt with the help of their teachers on the last day of school! Then we went straight to the airport. And Grandma & Grandpa surprised us all by showing up at the port!!!

I've got everything crossed for a Baltics. We were planning on doing a Baltics cruise for June 2015 with another line and Tokyo for September 2014 but would be very tempted to swap those two around if I could get on a Disney ship to the Baltics
I too have everything crossed for the Baltics with DCL in 2014!

At the Gold/Platinum reception Wednesday night, Captain Gus said to watch for the new schedules to come out next month. That's what he is hearing from DCL.

We did the Med on 7-7-2007 and then the Baltic on 7-6-2010...would do both again and maybe even a repo between the two?
Also wish they would include Hawaii again. Couldn't do it this year because we were already doing two cruises....
Would love to do a Nova Scotia cruise too.

When we went to the Baltic our most favorite time was the time in St. Petersburg! Beautiful place....

The announcement can't come soon enough...lots of plans to make!

It would be nice if the announcement could wait until at least 1/28 so I can "restock" my online dummy bookings.

It was around this time they announced last year wasn't it? I remember it was put back slightly because of the Costa Concordia disaster. I know it's been nearly a year since we booked our EBTA

Me too

You can't beat the convenience of it for those who live near the NY Port. It was great being home within an hour of stepping foot off the ship.
