When angels visit us, we do not hear the rustle of wings, nor feel the feathery touch of the breast of a dove; but we know their presence by the love they create in our hearts.

I have a request in with my TA for this one. I will be transferring ressie from a dummy date I booked onboard. Hopefully the prices wont be too outrageous like the Baltic ones are.

Hi - I am the same, I've been talking to my TA last night and today as I am concerned about the cost.

We are transferring from a dummy date to hopefully a cat 6 - i'm just hoping we can afford it.

I was also looking at the 7 night Wonder cruise, but I really wanted the eastern itinerary, and as that is doing the western (typical!! ) we weren't so keen as we have been to Cayman and Mexico before.

Oh well - here's hoping the prices aren't too bad - have you ANY idea what they will be??

I'm also considering this cruise. I can't believe that DCL won't give us some idea on the rates before next Tuesday! (actually....I really am kind of mad about it...as much as I get mad about anything)

This cruise could be right up there with the Med/Baltic rates which are kind of scary looking. It might end up that a TransAtlantic WITH airfare could be around the same. That's what my hard decision will be on Tuesday.

We are hoping to do this one also - as with all of you we are waiting to see prices first... We had hoped to do one of the Baltics - but they are a little steep and then when we add airfare for 4 plus a few days in London pre-cruise, excursions, etc - probably looking close to $20,000 if not more

We did the 10 night Christmas cruise back in 2006 and it was wonderful We spent Christmas day on CC and it was great! This cruise has a few different ports than the ones we visited in 2006 so that is exciting!!

Guess we all have to wait until next Tuesday!!

Do you mind me asking what category you had and approximately what you paid per person so we could have some ball park figure to see if we can even think about affording this cruise. I'm afraid it's going to be higher than the Baltic, then what will I do?

Hi there Deb & Jackie! and everyone else!

I'd love to do this cruise too but need to wait and see how much they're going to charge first...


Would be lovely to spend Christmas AND my Birthday onboard though....

Hi EllaEnchanted -

We sailed in a Cat 3 on that cruise - it was unbelievable . There were 5 of us - 2 adults and 3 children (all under 12) and if I remember right we paid around $15,000 or so - but we had booked that room back in 2004 for 2006 . We have sailed in Cat 11 since then and that is fine as well!! To give you another idea - we book a 7 day News Years Eve cruise on the Magic for this year and booked about 18 months out with the on-board booking discount and we are paying about $5,800 for 4 in cat 11.

Thanks m......we usually sail in a cat 6.....just the two of us, me and DH. Since we're booking two years out I'm hoping for a great discount. I just hope it's not priced out of our doable list. One good thing is that it's not going to cost us any airfare.....we always drive to FL. Keeping my fingers crossed.....I really really want to do this cruise.
