I think so. Either that or it gives you a link to print it.

We played with the different costs of flying into different cities from SEA.

I figured that we could do a little exploring on the way from the airport to the port if the prices were right.

The day I looked (don't remember the dates I choose, but it was when the scuttlebutt was of a Rome home port) there were differences of 750 - 1000 between flying into Paris and Rome.

For us that would be times 3. I figured for $3000 difference we could easily explore for a few days or even just take the train and enjoy the scenary while we get used to the time change.
(Plus the train would go past Boularis and I could relive a few college age memories "Art in France" and Italy redoing the same route)

Skye- who will not go into every art museum in every city on this trip. Nor will she be doing critique writeups. Just appreciating and enjoying the art.

After the 2010 EBTA, I went to London for a few days. So I had two different flights going on - BCN to Heathrow and then Heathrow to Orlando. First flight was with BA. The second was on Aer Lingus (connecting in Dublin). I booked direct with each airline. When I was trying to confirm payment and such for the second flight, it kept kicking back my CC telling me it wouldn't work.

I knew the card was good, so I called the cc company. Ends up they were blocking my card due to unusual "foreign transactions" too close together. After answering several security questions, they unblocked my card and I was finally able to finish booking my second flight.

It was a lot of aggravation in a short span of time, however as least I know my cc company was looking out for me. I've always called to let them know when I'll be overseas so my card doesn't get blocked while on vacation, but had no idea it would occur during an internet transaction.

Just something to keep in mind if any of you end up booking multiple flights with a "foreign" airline.

depending on the costs and such, I'm thinking of doing a bit of exploring myself before the cruise. I joked with a friend that I could fly to Ireland, ferry to Wales, train to London, train to Paris to port. My friend told me that if she went, it would have to be a ferry between England and France as she will NOT go underwater for that length of time. Believe me it was hard enough getting her on the metro from Arlington into DC.

Getting worried now that I may need to rethink this cruise as the cost of flights might just push it too far! Anyone else looked at this?

Looking at Orlando:
$1458 1 way on BA
$1017 return on BA
$1431 1 way on Virgin
$944 return on Virgin

Looking at Miami:
$1483 1 way on BA
$1042 return on BA
$1456 1 way on Virgin
$892 return on Virgin

Prices just seem so much higher!

Being from the UK we have decided to buy return airfare from US to England, so we have our 2013 and 2014 holidays covered. We will be looking to fly back to the US, and return to the UK on a TA crossing april/may 2014. This solves our problem of the one way price hike.

That is basically how we felt as well. We were very shy but soooo looking forward to the 2013.


I guess we are next...
I am Crystal (40) married to Trent (41) have been together for 12 years married for almost 5.
I work for a medical clinic and work as a TA part-time. Trent works for the City.
We have no children (however would love too). We do however have 4 dogs and 2 cats.
We are from Deadwood, South Dakota.
We love Disney so much we got married there, and are DVC members. We can't wait for this cruise!!!

I do have a question we are debating between early and late dining, any insight?

Well, we sent our Travel agent our request to change our dummy cruise to the Westbound!!! We are so excited! We are trying to get a sideways cat 11 or depending on the price a 9A with a porthole. I don't really care, I just want to be on the boat!!

I will introduce myself....My name is Daisy and I am married to Chris. We have an 8 year old daughter and a 5 year old son.....they will be 10 and 7 on the cruise.

I am ready to book already and get that part over with!!

Boy, I go away for a few days and it's hard to catch up.
For my intro: I am Evelyn, I did the 2011 WBTA, first Disney cruise also sailed on the Magic's Double Dip 7 night in November. She was Decorated so pretty for Christmas, that was a real treat. I am retired from Southwest Airlines, Hence the name fly4free2 . I travel the world but I must say, Crusing is my favorite and Disney does it best.

The perfect time to step right in after my friend Evelyn.....Hi, I'm Caroline - retired in June after 34 yrs teaching, missed it so much over the summer, that I am back 12 hrs a week teaching. Have 5 grown daughters, 2 grandchildren, and I love life!!!!!

After an abbreviated 2011 WBTA, I decided that some things in life we begin, must be finished, so I plan to complete the 2013 WBTA!!

Hoping we can relive the "Table 23" experience.

Margaret do you have a crystal ball that foretells a UK TA crossing in 2014

Caroline I didn't realise that you didn't complete the cruise. I hope it wasn't due to an emergency or something bad....you must definitely complete the 2013 one!
