Do you get longer breaks during the rest of the year to make up for the shorter summer?
Kids in elementary school over here generally get 12 weeks during a year.

Was REALLY hoping 2014 would have some solid offerings other than Alaska for West Coast cruisers.

On DCL's sight it says we don't start the cruise until 7:00pm! If that's true, the day before is probably plenty of time. If you want to spend more time enjoying the city, up to you!

We'll be stopping there on our March Fantasy cruise!!! I can't wait to get a little taste!!!

It really depends on what you like to do. If all you want is a tour of San Juan then the day before is fine. If you'd like to see more of PR then I'd give it 3 days.

First - Hi Luke!!

OK, folks - what am I doing wrong? I can't see any of the itineraries on the DCL website. Is it because I'm a day too early? I put in Europe and I choose Barcelona then it says pick a date...then whenever I try to select a month / year it cancels out and clears the other two and they're empty again. I can't even see any of the itineraries or dates. I want to see the one out of Venice too.

I saw somebody yesterday posted the "starting at" prices for a 12 night Med at $2,388 for an inside room. I just wanted to see what the date(s) were for that cruise and the exact itinerary!! OH, and can somebody tell me how much the current deposit % is for these cruises? I forget how much they run....we have a re-booking that I could possibly move but don't want to get into TOOOO MUCH of a deposit. I would love to snag a SPH room again....

I think what we REALLLLY want is one of these itineraries for 2015...

He does a great job on his website. The way he organizes info makes it so easy to read/understand. Kudos to him!

here are the 12-night med cruises:
http://disneycruise.disney.go.com/cr...ranean-cruise/

In the calendar on the right you can see the dates.
also in small underneath it says 'view 2014 calendar' for those itineraries that are the same in 2013 and 2014

http://disneycruise.disney.go.com/cruises-destinations/

1. Click on Cruises & Destinations at the top of the screen
2. Click on Europe (or any other destination you want to view)
3. Click on Cruises that Visit Europe

Doing so won't give you prices, but you'll get dates and itineraries.

Funny - us too. It kills me to see those Venice itineraries in 2014 cause we can't go till 2015. Hopefully, they will repeat them.

So, to see specifics, you need to click on the "cruises and destinations" tab. Then pick "Europe" then "Cruises that visit Europe." Then you will be able to click on the specific itinerary you're interested in to see details. Not pricing though yet. There should be a "sticky" up soon where Gold/Platinum folks report in today on pricing. Hope that helps.

If you don't move an OBB, then the deposit is 20%.

Also, I've noticed that the SPR rooms sometimes run MORE than a cat 9 outside room on deck 2 with no obstruction. Make sure you check both.

Thanks I figured we might as well see some of San Juan before we board the ship.

The CM pull up the wrong (ship) cruise the first time, but we finally got the cabin we wanted for Oct. 11th.

Can someone tell me how does it work (like airfare etc) when you don't start and stop in the same place?
You can do a multi-city fare (check travelocity). I just looked yesterday cause I was curious if multi city (Venice to Barcelona) would cost more than round trip Venice. I checked summer 2013 pricing. From Dulles, they are about the same - $1,400ish.
