My fiance and I just booked a 6A room for the 3.0 cruise. Reading through things it looks to have its pros and cons, as we have never been on a cruise before were hoping it will be fine.

Cant wait for 2012.

So the inside staterooms are considered mid? Or only some are?

There are inside staterooms through out the ship.

Anywhere there is a outside stateroom (veranda or port hole) there is usually an inside stateroom across the hall.

Insides cost more than Cat. 9A!

Notice that the cat. 9A cabins (oceanview) cost less than the cat. 10 and 11 insides! Still - it's over $1100 pp for the least expensive cabin (9A) for a 5-night Bahamas cruise. I will definitely pass on this and hope the Dec. cruise is a 7-night on the Fantasy - for probably not much more money.

I think I want one of the inside cabins. I want to see the new virtual portholes. And I would love the December cruise to be a 7 night. I am still hoping for a repo cruise in my future. I LOVE the sea days on a cruise.

People feel that Mid Ship rooms feel less motion. Think of a teeter totter and how the middle moves less than either end.

Also, to minimize movement, people feel that the lower decks feel less movement.
Have you ever had a problem with the teeter tottering?

The idea behind this June cruise is for people who cannot get time off during she school year. Yeah it may cost a bit more, but we'll still have jobs.

I understand why the cruise is in June, and I wanted to point out that some oceanview cabins cost less than insides. I have no doubt that it will be a fun cruise.

The last time we went on a Disney cruise, our daughters were teenagers. Now they are both married and one has a 6 month old son. I am thinking of surprising them and booking the trip for all of us. At the time of the cruise, my grandson will be 2 years old. Do we pay for him as a third person in the room, or since he is under 3 is he free like he is in the parks?

Booking 3.0 on the PC Repositioning Cruise

We are booked through Dreams on the 1-6-11 Panama Canal repositioning cruise. Assuming the discounts and space still exist is it possible to book 3.0 on our cruise and get the Dreams group space/rates? If so, what do we tell the rebooking staff on our ship?



Thanks,

Craig and Sharon

My roomie and I want the virtual porholes, too. We made sure to look for a room with that when getting a quote.

I'd much rather have a large window on the Dream in a 204 sq. ft. cabin than a virtual porthole in a 169 sq. ft. inside cabin - especially when the OV costs less.

My roomie and I are in the process of getting a quote for a deluxe inside room with a virtual porthole. It is 204 sq. feet. Unless we are really wrong, we are able to have the larger room with the virtual porthole which we are both excited to see.

You're right that the Cat. 10 is the same size as the cat. 9 OV. I'll be in a cat. 11C on the Dream in February. I booked it because it was cheap, not because of the virtual porthole.

Does anybody have an 'educated guess' about when the second half of the 2012 itineraries will be released?

Only that I checked the Hong Kong overseas terminal website & it gave links to all of the cruise lines including DCL. Winters from November to March are actually the best time to visit Hong Kong because it is not rainy and not muggy hot.

Maybe? Cruises between HK & Japan with add-ons to the Disney parks each way?

Part of attracting the Chinese market? Or great for the Aussies & Kiwis
