All these new theories have made my head spin
There will always have to be a DCL Magic...after all, what is Disney without Magic!

And yes.....too many theories. I don't want to think about those.....just the WBTA next year please...ON THE MAGIC!

Reading all of these of possibly not WBTA is making me depressed... Need to think positive thoughts The one thing also to think about is that the Magic was listed in being at port of calls in Europe.

I do feel confident that the TA cruises will take place next year.
After reading a number of the news network stories, they state it would be a poor time for cruise companies (Disney) to announce any new cruises, because the concern is that "virgin cruisers" as they are being called, as well as return cruisers might feel less compelled to book a cruise at this time.
Really makes perfect sense!!

STAY POSITIVE EVERYONE....

I don't think they will delay much longer...all the cruise firms now need $$$£££ deposits in their coffers because this terrible disaster will definitely hit bookings.

Big business's are NOT sentimental when it comes to making profits and I think they will announce soon but just maybe not so loud as was planned.

Maybe we will get a hint tonight.

20/20 is doing their whole hour on the cruise industry tonight.

Last night on ABC World news they mentioned the show and said-
We have to give full disclosure that the parent company for ABC is Disney and they have a cruise line as well.

SO maybe we will learn something tonight.

Wow - post here as soon as anyone knows anything! I'm not sure I'll be home to watch it, but if I am - I will be glued to the set!

AND I am gearing up to book this next week. I have a feeling it will be soon. (that maniacal mouse wants my money!)

For those in the know,

I have a friend who MAY go on the WBTA - complicated circumstances determine if she goes or not.

Should I book for two people or one?
If I book for two and she can't go, will my cruise price drop to the solo price (this would be before final payment date of course)?

What is the prevailing wisdom?

Kristi

Just doing our jobs, M'am.

On your other question, I'd tell you to book for two. Mainly because if you wait and the price goes UP - she'd have to pay the higher rate. What I am not sure about is what would happen if she dropped. I do know that yes, you'd go to the solo rate. It's just not sure if it would go to the rate when you booked, or at the time you drop her. I know there are TA's on this thread, perhaps they know? I have always heard though it's easier to drop than to add.
