You are silver until you complete your 5th cruise.

Now I am also interested in this. I am really hoping the week of March 16, 2013 is an Eastern on the Fantasy, but I am guessing it will end up being a Western.

I am currently booked on the May 19, 2012 Eastern. Unfortunately our kids school gets out a few days later than last year, causing them to miss a couple days of school. I was good with that, but just recently booked a trip for spring break that will pull them out for a couple days as well. I hate to pull them out twice within two months.

I would really like to move it to June 2012, but those are now way too expensive. I think if either March 16, 2013 or June 2013 isn't too much higher than what I was able to book on opening day last year, I will probably switch.
cheern' for Disney!

Confused Linda
To get the 10% discount and the OBC credit. It's worth it to float a reservation for those amenities.

I emailled Kelsie (MY DU agent) a couple of days ago with my plans based on what I think the itineraries will be. I have had the auto response but nothing else yet - I am hoping that is because the DU agents and other TAs are busy getting all their info lined up for a booking release SOON!

For those of us who can't book in advance, the general public will have a decent heads up, wouldn't you say? I know certain level members usually get first dibs. Because I've yet to sail, I won't have this priveledge.
