I have heard that the 2012 MR cruises in December are cancelled. You can get your deposit money back. But you may get an extra incentive if you move your deposit to another cruise (that's been rumored.)

From the cancellation thread:
"Guests who are currently booked on one of these sailings will need to move their reservation to another available sail date of a 7-night or longer sailing. If guests move their reservations by 12/22/11, they are eligible for an onboard credit, in addition to any that they may already qualify for. For the 12/09/12 and 12/16/12 sailings, guests will receive a $250 onboard credit. For the 12/23/12 and 12/30/12 sailings, they will receive a $500 onboard credit. If guests do not move their reservation by 12/22/11, they will automatically be placed on the 12/02/12 Mexican Riviera sailing."

I would bet money on Dec 23rd being the day they release the new Wonder/Magic schedules. Of course I could be wrong as well. In the past when DCL has made a big change such as this and had a deadline (reclassified rooms), the new schedule was just after the deadline.
My best guess.

Pity, because it would have been nice for those who wanted a cruise to have the choice of a PC cruise. But if you're right, delaying that decision until it is released would mean the loss of a lot of money.

It would be easy for someone to move their date to a November cruise as a dummy date place holder then if a PC is released for that timeframe, switch it to that cruise.

I think there is going to be a shedule redo. There has been a survey out there about a few different cruises. I think they will try out the 3/4/5 night cruises that they have been surveying passengers about. As someone who lives 20 min north of the port of L.A. I am very sad that they might be leaving, but I keep telling myself it is a might. It will stay that way untill 2013 comes out. I have a feeling they will be around the west coast still.

Well now that my head has cooled off let me offer this thought. I have noticed that no one here has mentioned something very importaint. If they were to leave before Jan 1 of 2013 they would be in violation of there contract with the Port of Los Angeles. Violating that contract would not be their best interest. First it would probably cost them a lot of money to break the contract, and two, if they did break the contract they probably would not be welcome back. That would make it harder to come back and offer more Hawaii cruises and do forth. Also maybe they are reworking the ports of call to make it more appealing. So I am just throwing this out there as food for thought.

Forgive me if this question has already been answered elsewhere - but I seem to recall that certain multiple repeat past guests get first dibs on reservations when the new dates come out. So when they finally release the dates, will everyone see them, but only a few be able to book, or will they not release to the general public at all until the past guests get a shot? And how long will we have to wait from when they release to the past guests and when we (i.e., the general public or someone like myself who has only sailed DCL once before) get a crack at the dates?

Thanks

Generally, Gold and Platinum CC members get a few days before the dates of special itineraries are announced to the general public. I don't believe that perk goes for routine cruises.

It is on all new itineraries that Gold and Silver get advance booking privilage. The returing itineraries are published to all at the same time.

Thought I saw 5 cruises with only 1 still available, could be the others are sold out.

Special cruises have been opened up to Platinum and Gold cruisers, not Silver cruisers. The Silvers' and general public are able to book the same day.

DCL just announced earlier this week they cancelled the last 4 Dec. 2012 MR cruises. There will only be 1 Dec. 2012 MR sailing, 12/2/12.

Hi! New to the boards and set to sail on the Magic June 10th up to Canada! To say we are excited is a huge understatement! We've cruised with RCI twice but are wanting to try something a little more special for the kids!

I have read through this entire thread and am feeling the excitement with all of you about where the Magic and Wonder will go in 2013...We also just went ahead and booked an Eastern on the Fantasy for November 13 while prices *seemed* low. I guess if we want to hop on board the Magic or Wonder we can switch it...if we get priced out of those trips (Airfare to Europe? WOW!) then we still have something to look forward to as we've never been to St. Maarten and absolutely LOVE St. John USVI.

I got the idea to book so far ahead from this thread but I am curious how much higher would you think the prices would be if we booked this time next year or 6 months prior to the November 2013 cruise? I mean are we saving a ton this way?

With Disney you nearly always save money by booking early. I've heard numerous tales of woe from people who put off their decision even for a few days only to find that prices have jumped dramatically.

Prices on popular cruises on popular dates can rise over minutes and hours. I witnessed that with the last opening date.
