Good to know. Another cruiseline to recommend?

Hello fellow 'potential' cruisers!

My family was booked on the WBTA 2010 (Captain Jack's re-repoing repositioning cruise - haha, something like that) but sadly, we had to cancel. My little sister and I were just too busy with school at that time. Well, my sister graduated from UC Davis last quarter and now we're feeling ready for a TA cruise!

Hopefully this one actually happens! We'd love to do it now that we're finally free to. My grandma has always wanted to do a Trans Atlantic and it would be awesome for this to happen before it gets too hard for her to travel.

We're currently booked on the EBTA, but I will switch over as soon as this one is announced. The EBTA has terrible timing for me. I work at a ballet school and I'd be missing some important rehearsal time if we got stuck with the EBTA.

Does anyone else have the EB booked, hoping for the WB?

It's been super hot here the last few days. I'm not used to it yet by any means. I laughed this morning when they said we had a cold front coming in.... it's dropping the temps down to a chilly 84!!!! Made me literally LOL!

Count Gus & Chas in! We did the WBTA 2010 with quite a few people already here!! Would love to do it again. I wish they would announce it so we could book on board the Fantasy next week!! Guess I'll just have to book another dummy date in the meantime.

It has been consistently in the 80s-90s since we moved here in March (from WI). We have had about 1 week of rain total in that (where it rained for about an hour each day!)

So far it has been perfect, if not borderline hot. We have been Disney pretty much every week since we got here and some days we have to take it slow for the kids because of the heat.

Can't really complain too much when our family/friends call us to say that they went from High 60's to snow in one day

Just popping in to say hi and to wish all the Mothers on here (and anyone who has been like a mother) a Happy Mother's Day!

Still trying to be patient. As I posted on the FB site for this, patience is not one of my virtues.

I've been hearing that some of the CMs on the Dream & Fantasy cruises are informing people who are asking that the Magic will be going into drydock next year.

In Europe.

I'm not sure how this is going to affect our plans for another WBTA, but I'll continue to watch for more information.

The dry dock is not new. Most of us expect it to go into dry dock for 5-6 weeks and hopefully do the WBTA after. We know all the port dates line up but you just never know.

I've heard CM's talk about the drydock as well and it's been pretty common knowledge for a long time. It's what happens AFTER the drydock that is the "big mystery".

Of course there is much speculation as to what the drydock will involve. Will they put in the virtual portholes? Will they try to do some of the features that the newer ships have in terms of technology? (the artwork, etc.) Will they try to do a small concierge area?

All conjecture of course. I'm pretty sure that whatever they are doing, it has all been arranged already. Why DCL is waiting to make any announcements as to the 2013 itineraries just isn't known. Doesn't make sense to me from a business standpoint, but who am I? Just a person who would really like to know.

Someone I know said to me that it's only the DIS'ers that want to know so far in advance, and that to the "real" population, announcing only a year out is normal and it's no big deal. Not sure about that, but I still would like to know more than a year out.

We'll have to wait no matter what, until DCL decides to inform the public.
