I think that since DCL has moved forward with a greater advertising campaign including TV commercials, that the west coast cruises would sell a lot better. I would have cruised a lot earlier had I known they were there. Come on back to Cali, DCL, we're right here waiting!! ...in Phoenix, haha.

Do u think they will release dream and fantasy schedules for the entire 2015 year together? Or release only part of the year and then release the rest of the year later?

Yes, but other cruise lines go to other ports. Maybe they repeat those ports year to year with minor changes, too. But I'm just saying it would be great if Disney could explore those other ports, too Like Belize

I'm throwing in a vote that one day they also sail from Baltimore to Bermuda! The sailings from Baltimore give you more time in Bermuda than the ones from NYC, and that's not a far drive for many on east coast either. Just saying

Looks like the Fantasy will spend 2015 January to May doing Eastern Caribbean cruises. It is scheduled to make port every Tuesday at St Maarten according to the St Maarten Port web site.

Probably part of the year only at first. The Jan-May are the easy, 'boring' itineraries. It's the summer schedules that are usually the 'exciting' ones.

more 2015 speculation?

The Disney Cruise Line Blog author really does his homework and has some interesting theories:

Sweet. I have been reading his blog for a couple weeks. His predictions prompted me to go look up my kids' 2014-2015 spring break schedule!

You could always book a placeholder cruise. That's what we did.

What does that mean "to book a place holder cruise"? We're new to all of this, and trying to figure out what to do. We're hoping to do a 4 nt cruise, early June 2015.

When people are on a DCL cruise they can book a future cruise for a 10% discount and onboard credit for that future cruise. They would also pay a 10% deposit instead of the usual 20%. If they don't know when they'll cruise again, or if the dates they want haven't started selling, they can book a "place holder cruise" also known as a "dummy cruise" for a date they have no intention of sailing, then later move the date onto the actual cruise they want when it becomes available. DCL allows you to move the date as many times as you need to, as long as you move it before the paid-in-full date of the place holder cruise so you won't lose your deposit.

We cruised with DCL three times before I discovered the DIS boards and found out about dummy cruises. Oh, the $$$$ we could have saved.

So the place holder cruise can only be booked when you're already on a cruise. Thanks. That's something to keep in mind when we go in 2015.

Yes! Book anther cruise while on board. If you are sure you are going cruise again with DCL, book on one of your first few days because the cruise desk can get crowded.

I cannot wait to see if they go out of NYC again. We went and it was wonderful. They were totally full for the cruises going south. The ones going to Canada were the problem. If they can work out the schedule to have most (all) of the cruises go south I know they will be sold out again.

I have spoken to many of my friends who sailed out of NYC and all of us would go again.
