Hi KRIS...Tell Don that Kathy and the Hoosier Daddy hopes all works out well.

Price - can't beat those early dec rates for the classic ships.
Time of Year - a short visit to WDW decked out for the holiday season should fit in nicely with a 4 night sail.
WOW-WEE....P I.... I love your 4 reasons.....hey! you want to add a 5th.reason........DEC. 4th is my birthday. Kathy and I have never vac./or cruised in Dec.and I know we are not cruisin' in Sept.2013, Kathy got a notice last week ....all of Sept.2013 vac. dates are blacked out. So we are still looking to rebook our Sept 15th cruise some where.

Well you need to look no further and rebook for that date!!! Sounds like a great birthday to me! We used an onboard booking discount and scored one of the 2 secret verandah cat 7A cabins on deck 7. We've never been on the classic ships so this will be a new experience.

It is nice let me tell you, we had a deck 6 - 7a in april for 5 days out of P C. Some of our[new] friends had your room than, they first had down the hall and was paying something like $500.00 more and I told them about the 7a savings ....nice how you make new friends that way.....I love it, makes you feel so good to help people out new to cruising. Will see about the 12/4/13 cruisin' , I need to pass it by Kath. ....the old Don will be 66 [feel like 46] that day.

Ouch Don! 66 is 66 any way you look at it!

We're looking forward to sailing on the Magic with its brand new interior. I hear the refurb will be pretty extensive. I hope you and Kathy can make it on that one.

I would say so. I just checked the web site and the cruise is still not there. At this point I think they need to start informing us. I am getting tired of waiting. Of course that could be their evil plan all along, so there is less people to compensate.

My DW said the same thing actually. The more people that bail out now the less they have to compensate! They are making us sweat it out. I am in a lucky position where I can just wait ( within reason we have flights booked so need to change if required ) but some people will need a specific date such as the wedding you are attending. Really not on. Not pixie dust at all.

Remember, there are probably more than a few people out there who are also booked on this cruise who are NOT on the Disboards, and who probably do not know anything about what's going on. Imagine their surprise when they find out.

I was wondering that. Ignorance may be bliss...until you find out your beloved vacation plans are ruined. Is it my British impatience? Why is it taking so long?

I'm remaining patient. I keep thinking our cruise will just miraculously reappear on the website

but I digress.............

So another dvc deal is happening. I would love to take advantage but did I mention we're on a jan 12, 2013 eastern caribbean on the Fantasy?

Long story short we were 'forced' to book this when we cancelled the 12 nt June 27th Med cruise on pts (cat 11C gty). Its not a fair trade-off if you ask me but the points were almost identical (we are now in a cat 11A).

Here's how I've summed up our new cruise plans

So I'm holding out on the Sept 29 sail for some major

Awwww, PI, you're having a heck of a time with these ressies....
On the brighter side, I think you'll love the 11A inside room with the magic porthole. DD had one of those last November and she and DGS loved it. I also enjoyed watching it when I was in their room. It definately no longer feels like you're on the "inside".

I never get any mailings about DVC deals on the cruiseline. How do you hear of them? They sound like good deals!

We are holding out as well...pixie dust us DCL!

It was sent as an email yesterday. Wonder why it didn't arrive your way?
There's a thread over on the DVC forum about it here. http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3011612

Once you apply the exchange rate, you are talking a very nice deal!!! But it is such a last minute decision!!!
I know you have an upcoming trip. When are you travelling in?

I don't know what's going on. I'd rather sail with Regina on Dec 1 since I'm scheduled to be at the world for a tax conference on Dec 9. (boring but at least it's at the yacht club!) The timing would be perfect!

But the DVC wouldn't allow us to sail in 2012. And this is 100% on points. So we are going to try for a port upgrade. Who knows? We may keep the virtual porthole depending on the situation.

I didn't realize you sailed in Nov.
