Just fill out a quote request and list your reservation number asking them to reshop it for you. If the price hasn't gone up more than 10% it would be better for them to redo the reservation as an OBB and have the OBC added as well.

We booked our dummy date on the fantasy last week, and the CM said that Europe sold very well and will be back in 2014 (but she didn't say the ports).

She also said that one would be in Alaska and that there would be a "new" US port, but no one knew what that was.

This is all probably old news as i didn't have time to read through everything, but just thought i would share

We have our fingers crossed for a baltics!

Yes, that is all. It was a very low digital...1.3 maybe...back in 2003 on our first cruise. I had seen someone's photo like this on the DIS before our cruise and was determined to get a shot like it on our first cruise [and trip to WDW]. It was in one of the portholes outside of PC after our character breakfast.

So either a classic ship will sail out of Miami or even PC, or the Dream will do another double dip.

Maybe silverfox will shed some light?
If the Dream indeed switches up its departure dates from PC, the holidays would nicely fit on the 4-night rotation; Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Years Day would all be sea days. Does that mean they wouldn't switch it up? No. There's ways hope.

The Magic could also be doing these out of Miami instead of two 10-day southern Caribbean holiday cruises as well.

Isn't it funny how American Airlines does a free stop over in the last USA city and United it's anywhere they fly. However, United requires many more miles than American. I use American to go to New Zealand and Australia (Fiji), but United to go to Asia.

It's been pretty quiet here on the boards if it's really true that they are releasing on Monday. Isn't there usually some advanced notice given to the TA's at least?

The news is being released on Monday. That gives the TAs time to pass the information on before booking Tuesday.

Just wondered if there has been some official confirmation that it is being released on Monday, or if it's just rumor still at this point.

I sent an email to my DU agent on Friday noting my preferences if the rumours were true, but she said she has not received anything official from DCL yet. We are all still waiting!!!

The only "official" confimation will be the announcement.

Disney marketing just baffles me. Some stuff is announced with big fanfare / no expense spared and other things are just released.

I have yet to get a email saying boo about new itineraries available. I get emails from Princess / Royal Caribbean etc. at least once a week. Princess is a well oiled machine for marketing / promoting / customer care.

I was looking at Disney Cruiseline site yesterday. The current Castaway Club newsletter is SPRING 2012 and the last news is from 2010. You think they could do better at keeping things like that current.

I doubt Princess or RC have the number of customers champing at the bit to book cruises the day they're released. Don't get me wrong, I'd like more marketing/email notifications about future cruises. A little more time to think about the exact cruise/time we want would be nice too. I guess DCL doesn't find it necessary to market any more than they do. As an aside, they do market their Galveston cruises pretty heavily here in TX.
