So the Dream has a standing schedule of 3 and 4 nights. 4 nights depart on Sunday, and 3 nights depart on Thursdays.

Looking ahead at 2014, specifically xmas/new years, Dec 25th and Jan 1st land on a Thursday. In years past, these two dates would coincide with a sea day AFAIK. Therefore, will we see 5n cruises for these? I can't imagine docking on these dates...

DCL has changed the schedule for Thanksgiving week for the same reason in the past. It's possible the 3 and 4-night cruises for Christmas and New Year's will be reversed in 2014.

Good point... We initially were looking at doing the Fantasy during xmas or NYE but budget might prevent us - instead we are now looking at the Dream during xmas 2014.

We booked 2013 NYE on Fantasy when prices first came out. 11C was cheapest room - for 4 of us w/ OBB = $5,565. I would like to book this same week again in 2014 - hope prices aren't any higher than 2013.

We've only cruised once and it was a semi-spur of the moment booking (booked just a couple of months out). At the time, there was a special offer of a $25 onboard credit. We are thinking of another 3 night Bahama cruise on the Dream in May, 2014. Is there any extra benefit of booking now or should I wait and see if any special offers come out for our travel dates?

I've tried to find other ports to see if they show the Magic and have had no luck...
I can't wait to hear where they are going....

Why not do both?
If I really want to cruise, I book as soon as we decide to cruise. I like choosing my own cabin and knowing we'll have main dining time. Some feel it's better to book later, after the final payment due date, once they release specials. I don't want my vacation to depend on finding a special; I want to be able to book flights etc and know it's a done deal. If later they offer such a great special that it is worth cancelling & rebooking, like KSF, I'd go for it.

The last night of our May, 2012 cruise ended on a semi-bad note so I've not been able to talk my husband into saying yes yet. If a special offer comes out, will I have to cancel and rebook? Or will they be able to apply the special offer to an existing reservation like at WDW? If I were to book and have to cancel, won't I incur a cancellation fee?

Yes, but sometimes savings is more than cancellation fee such as KSF. Another option is to book now & watch. As FPDD approaches, cancel w/o penalty & wait for a special. Sometimes the prices are higher by then so there may not be a special. In that case, dont' cancel; keep the original res.

On our Nov Fantasy cruise, one could still book & get main dining just 3 weeks prior to sailing & showing lots of available cabins. That was unheard of when there were only 2 ships! Still no specials and somehow lots of cabins were booked in the last few weeks so by the week prior, no more early dining & very little availability.
I'm not a gambler so I can't take that last minute uncertainty.That's just me.

Yes. They have been out for a while. There are no schedules from Sept-Dec 2014 for any ship.
