When we stopped in San Juan two weeks ago (Fantasy Eastern) we really enjoyed just exploring the old city. We walked across the street from the docks and caught the free park service tram and rode it up to El Morro. Spectacular! From there we walked back down to the ship through the old city. Very colorful.

Since we were on the ship I've got no suggestions about places to stay that night so that would probably have an impact on how you go about seeing San Juan.

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.
Thanks. That's a little messed up that that is the only way to see the itineraries & dates.

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.

Yeah - I really want to do this in 2015 - DS graduates from HS that spring. We're going to visit DL in CA for 4 nights and then 7 nights at the new DVC resort on Oahu plus a few nights on Maui this summer so it would be a little hard for us to do another really big trip again in 2014...plus with this trip planned for 2 weeks we won't be going to WDW in 2013. I had figured we'd probably do 2 trips to FL in 2014 and then cruise again in 2015. We also still haven't sailed on the Dream or the Fantasy yet 'cuz we tend to cruise for the itineraries. Seems like the Europe cruises are a better value (per night) than the Fantasy cruises. And of course the airfare is less to stay in the Caribbean...but the itineraries are not as exciting as EUROPE!! I hate that they do the better itineraries like the So. Caribbean during the school year. Is there a cruise that repos between Venice and Barcelona? Which date is that & how many nights is it? What to do...what do do.

If we would move our OBB to one of these European cruises then how much is the deposit? Is it less than 20%? I just bought airfare to CA & Hawaii a couple weeks ago and my washer died last weekend so I'm not really in a position to go dumping a lot more money on a deposit right now. At the moment the dummy cruise date we have is just on a 4-night Dream to keep the deposit reasonable...

I really like the new itenerary addtions for 2014. Yesterday I sent my TA my reservation request for two cruises and I feel confident I will get these two cruises and the category I am requesting. I also have my eyes on another cruise in 2014 but I haven't confirmed that yet. I hope everyone is exicted with these new itenerary.

If you move an OBB, your deposit should remain at 10%. So you would just owe 10% of the difference between your original booking and the new booking.

We are in the same boat. My DS will also graduate in the spring of 2015, which is why we want to do a big trip over the summer. Airfare is aweful during the summer months though. If DCL does Alaska again in 2015, we may just do that instead. Flying to Seattle versus Venice will probably save me about $4K for the 4 of us!!

Often times cheaper to fly into Seattle and rent a car to Vancouver than flying direct to Vancouver. There are also busses that take you up to Vancouver as well.

We flew into Seattle and took Amtrak to Vancouver. Terrific ride and incredible scenery. We did it back to Seattle after the cruise and stayed a few days. Saved us several hundred dollars. If you belong to AAA, you get a discount.

Yes. I just moved mine to December 2014 and only had to pay another $57.33 to cover the 10%.

Never thought about Amtrak. I'll file that one away for future use.

It's a verandah that has a slight obstruction. That way you get it for a cheaper price than a non-obstructed verandah. Because the obstruction is minimal it's worth it to take the discount.
