I don't remember calling it a disaster - but my thinking was that maybe they held off in the wake of bad publicity for the "cruise industry" in general - pretty hard to drum up excitement when people develop apprehension about cruising due to an at sea incident.

Plus, there are a finite number of cruises - so a few days off the market really isn't going to affect things in the long run. They can't "keep making the widgets"

If the news is true, tomorrow is probably the earliest anyone can book. That may be limited to Platinum and Gold Castaway Club members first, and then everyone else in subsequent days.

Sounds awful. Just thought I would share because there has been some debate about if this "disaster" is what put the release on hold. It does sound bad. Not sure if affects DCL's decision but I am so glad I am not on that boat!!

Looks like someone else out there on the interwebs was pretty spot on with their speculation as well. Kudos to both for their hard work and for sharing with us.
