I really hate the waiting. I manage waiting for a far-out booked cruise well enough other than the "I wish it were here" feeling. But this wait is beyond torture. Although someone said the VP told them that it would be announced within the next few weeks - meaning there WILL be a WBTA - there is still this part of me afraid they aren't going to do it (have the WBTA). The ol' "I can't believe it until I see it" thing.

I am sure DCL has their reasons. I hope there is a logical, well-thought out business reason and not just because its that they feel like not telling us.

In the scheme of things, it's not the end of the world - nor whether there is or is not a WBTA - a global crisis. But to ME, (and others) it is important and something we've so looked forward to. When announced, then we could get chatting on really fun stuff, like planning!

I am sure the wait has been due to the dry dock contracts, it must be sorted now though if they are due to announce soon.

Funny you should say that, I woke up this morning and had dreamt that had been announced and i'd booked it and got the cabin I want! I was quite upset when I realised it was all a dream....

so the info will be helpful and I will give a report once I am back..

Hi all!

Just joined the EBTA thread, and thought I'd pop in here. Though you guys (although I think I recognize many of the same faces from there?) are much more talkative- 86 pages! w00t!

Our hope is to do the EBTA, fly home, then use the other half of the airfare to fly back for the WBTA. Sadly, those two cruises will take all our paid vacay time for the year, so I don't think this will be the year that we add much time in Europe. I'm on the fence, but I think in 2014, we'll do a 1 week Med and then 2 weeks in Europe.

Anyway, we have a 2013 Fantasy for 9/21 (my bday ) that we will most likely move to the WBTA once it comes out. We booked the Fantasy on board the Dream, so we will get the stateroom credit and what not. Hopefully, we'll still get all our re-booking benefits when we move the booking- never know when or if that will go away.

Can't wait to get to know you all!

Nikki

Although those who have been on a WBTA before may already know where to find them, I just found a link which has the Navigators from the 2010 WBTA. Kind of interesting to see the types of things offered: http://www.wdwinfo.com/wdwinfo/cruis...-navigator.htm Of course you have to scroll down to find that cruise link, but it has each day's navigators.

I'm sure when DCL announces this WBTA we'll come up with some of our own fun events!

Thank you for sharing that link PhantomsGirl! Hadn't seen it before and am now really looking forward to studying them all tonight with a nice cup of coffee, wishing for the WBTA to finally be announced!

Good Morning, Happy Cruiser Wannabes!

Man, I will be SO glad to drop the "Wannabe" part of that greeting!

Annichan! Author of the fabulous FOODIE trip reports.

Finally not raining, but it's already clouding up. I need an ark.

Happy Day, all!
