It's too bad they didn't have some kind of big convention in Anaheim to announce exciting things about DCL to a bunch of big Disney fans. Oh, I don't know, maybe They could talk about 2013 sailings, what character would be on the stern of the Fantasy. New different things on the Fantasy. You know, new cool stuff like that.

Really hoping for October as well.

So how does the first day of booking typically go down? I am wondering how much advance notice there will be, as I want to ensure I book as soon as possible for the best price.

Also will the pricing be announced ahead of time or is it only when you can make the reservation that you can see the price?

thanks

I don't remember exact dates, but you can go back to the opening day threads for 2012 and get exact information, but this is what I remember:
The Magic, Wonder, Fantasy and Dream opened for part of 2012 in October-ish. These were all just regular itineraries, nothing special. Later, maybe a month later (don't quote me) Hawaii and the remainder of 2012 were announced and open for booking. I remember getting an e-mail from DCL one day before booking opened, but news was breaking here on the Dis about a week before that. Platinum and Gold could book first, then the next day bookings were open to everyone else. HTH!

Do TAs get advance notice or is it wiser to just keep checking these boards?

Pricing is not announced ahead of time, you will find out when you book.

Another poster mentioned DCL sending out an email with notice, not every gets DCL emails. Who knows what their rhyme or reason is for sending them, I'm Platinum and don't receive advance notices or even notice when the new Castaway Club newsletter is available online. My preference is even set to receive emails from them.

OK question, well opinion gage really.

If they come out before I cruise do we book - pay the additional deposit then try reshopping onboard and moving the ressie or do we just hold out? We are travelling on 30th October so close to when the anticipated date of release is which is why I'm not sure what to do?

When the announcement for Hawaii came out I knew about it before my TA, all because of the DIS inside info.

Some cabin classes sold out or went to GTY status VERY QUICKLY on certain cruise dates. I think I would book when released, then reshop on board.

2013 Dates?

Anyone know when the fall 2013 sailing dates will be made available? We'd like to book as soon as the dates come available, but we've got a VERY large group that is going (20-35 people) and need some lead time to get everyone together to discuss it.

Thank you in advance

I don't think that info has been releases yet.

Thinking of the 2011 vs 2012 itineraries. (Went on the 5/24/11- Nice port times)

The port of Seattle is cheaper to fly into and stay at than Vancouver.

The shorter itineraries in ports in 2012-not so great.

Maybe DCL would consider an 8 day instead of a 7 day so the Juneau and Ketchikan stops could be long enough and the Victoria could be longer and during the daytime.

I would go back for that one.

I could also go for a longer trip one way and would be willing to go out of Vancouver for that one.

or some Seattle down the coast to San Fran then Victoria ending in Seattle. That was a shorter one to balance out the repetition/rotation.

Create some back to back opportunities if you can.
