Go to Disney World instead. Your 3 year old will forget about it as soon as he/she sees the parks! Stay at Art of Animation and it will be a memorable vacation for sure. You may have residual disappointment, but your vacation won't be ruined. Good luck.

This sounds good but, the cost are a lot more now than they were a few months ago. I just looked in case our cruise get cancelled for next week and it would cost more than the cruise was going to cost me plus meals.

Is DCL processing peoples refunds immediately or is there some sort of delay? Meaning, is the money available to people right now to book something else, like a WDW vacation instead or a cruise on another line?

If not, it might be difficult for people to front that kind of money to pay for another vacation until their refund is actually processed. If DCL is processing refunds right away, that would definitely help matters.

We are on the Fantasy leaving on Saturday. There were several rooms still available on this cruise. I have a feeling we will now have a full ship. I am so sorry for everyone booked the Magic.

DCL and WDW are separate entities anyway, you aren't likely to find one offering a freebie of the other.
I do think the compensation is awesome...but the poster I was talking to was trying to salvage her trip with WDW at the front and back of the 5n cruise. If she's not able to come for a different cruise in the next 8 months, or get on one of the other sailings next week, it would be nice if she could get something comparable to a cruise to make up for it. I'm aware they are separate entities...but you can't tell me the two dont have connections!

This will be a deciding factor for us too should our 10/27 sailing get canceled.

Ugh, that stinks for the people who planned their time off work, etc, around this vacation. It does sound like DCL is going above and beyond in compensation. Now I wish I had been booked on this cruise, lol.

I would avoid cruises leaving on October 20th, if I were you.

We are on the 10/25 sailing. I just want to throw it out there that I would not be too bummed if they cancelled that as well. I'd be THRILLED with the compensation! However...easy for me to say having a flexible work schedule and less than 2 hour drive to the port.
We're on the 11/1/13 sailing....But on a military discount rate. My poor mom has never been on a cruise in her life or a vacation....She would be s heartbroken if our cruise was canceled.

My TA said DCL said it looks like they are holding the 10/27 Magic cruise for us affected on 10/20. I had DH check the Dream 10/20 and there was only Cat 4A-C left at 2:26pm but TA said now it looks sold out. Agents are trying feverishly to help us rebook.

This would be a no brainer for me. I would take the refund, apply it to a new cruise. Then add the free cruise to that, and make it a back to back 10 nighter on the new Magic, am I the only one thinking of this? I would have thought I hit the lottery.

Yup!!!

We will B2B 10/25 with 10/27 for 7 nights. Looks like our TA got us 10/27 FOR FREE!!! Would love to book the 10/20 Dream with my refund.... Three cruises
