Noel, WHAT a fabulous list!
Thanks, Linda, as you know I am an OCD planner!

Happy Saturday everyone! Just can't let this thread go into oblivion and hit more than the 7 pages behind mark.

I'm not sure if people on here read the Facebook thread or not, but someone posted that they sat next to the DCL VP on the Wonder. He commented that the WBTA should be announced in the next few weeks. Hope that is true!

I wonder how long "in the next few weeks" means? At least that means there will be one!! At this point I've waited so long I was hoping they'd wait until September so I can get my placeholder while on the Wonder in August.

I feel the same as I cruise in Sept as well. But I will book when it comes out and then see what I can get onboard in Sept.

Good Morning, Happy Cruiser Wannabes!

Well, that's a crumb to keep us going another few weeks. The last ship was 'full' but not at capacity. Although there are a few enthusiasts anxiously waiting here, i'm betting you'll be able to reshop it in September for a better price, if you don't have a placeholder waiting.

If this one comes through, that'll shoot our travel budget for next year, lol.

At least, the house next door has sold, so we won't be doing yard work for two any more.

The rain has stopped, at least temporarily and the place is as green as Ireland!

Thanks for sharing so much information from personal experience. I've added many of the items to file I'm keeping for WBTA DH and I have booked for 09/13.

Although we aren't doing this particular cruise with Disney, we still keep an eye on this thread to see how things are progressing.

Happy sailing to all!

I know, that was such a fantastic post by Noel Birkner! Sorry you aren't going with us, but I hope you do enjoy the one you have booked. Be sure to let us know how it goes.

I too, am wondering how long "a few weeks is". But as long as it means there WILL be a WBTA in 2013, I am much heartened.

I don't think these cruises sell out, I know I read that one of them, maybe the 2010 one was nearly empty. So for those who can wait may score some really nice deals. For others, simply waiting awhile to get the discount and OBC shouldn't be an issue.

So I am in for the WB I think.

We just got off the Fantasy on Saturday and I booked the EB telling them I am transferring to the WB. They thought the WB would be announced at the end of June or early July. I did not think he sounded very confident though.

Welcome Aboard, Poohs4me! Hope we have something to really talk about, soon. It's really hard making conversation over a cruise that may or may not exist!

Thanks - I have been a lurker since you started the thread; so I have been following along. Before you scold me for being a lurker, I had a reason for lurking and not joining in. DH was seriously on the fence and until I booked something I did not want to jynx (is that how you spell that) the possibility.

We haven't completely given up on the WBTA but had to move a placeholder!

birkner, what a wonderful collection of things to do in Barcelona! We will definitely print that out for our weekendtrip that we are thinking about at the moment. Thank you so much for the list!

That would be great!
DH is getting proactive (now should I be happy or scared?) and really liked the WBTAs on Celebrety Eclipse, Liberty of the Seas and Independence of the Seas... and I have to admit the LotS has perfect dates, leaving on a Sunday, including a public holiday (11/1) and my birthday - I could get away with taking only 10 days off and the price is quite nice as well (about 2.000 Euros/$ 2.500 for a balcony cabin).

The sooner DCL announces the WBTA, the sooner we (or: he?) can make a decision. I just hope they don't announce it before the tax return goes through

Just wanted to pop in and say "Hiiiii"! We are still here and waiting for the announcement. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this trip comes to fruition soon. I'm getting the DCL itch and it's starting to become hard to control! Darn "allergies"...may just have to convince DH that we should take advantage of FLRes rates! :-)


Maybe now that they release/increased ticket prices for WDW they are ready to roll with the fall itinerary!
