I can´t believe DCL is doing this to us. Just when I was ready to book next years´vacation, I have been forbidden by Mike and Jenny in case there is still a chance of this happening.
I guess we enjoyed our WBTA.

So back to the waiting!

Even if they announce it tomorrow, we're locked in to Alaska/West Coast Repo, preceeded by train across Canada. A transatlantic would have been cheaper than THAT bundle, lol.

We just booked the 14 day EB Panama Canal on the Wonder in Sept. 13. Would love to change over to a WBTA but would need to know soon. Also, we would have to examine air fare as it would be much cheaper for the domestic flights for the existing cruise. And last but not least, Jamie is due in November. So, we will have an almost 3 year old and a nine month olc with us!!!

That sounds like something DH and I would love. Will you travel without stops to the coast? We'd love it if we could spend a bit of time at places along the route.

Enjoy! Sounds like a once in a lifetime adventure.

We switched to the Eastern Carib. on Sept 7th. I waited as long as I could before switching, but DH's work did the vacation calendar last week. I will be so upset if there is a last minute addition of 2013 WTBA. Finger's crossed for a 2014

Was just reading that the last Magic cruise in the Med is on August 31. Then it shows nothing until Miami on October 20. And I read that Disney has port time scheduled in Gibraltar for October. Gibraltar does not have a dry dock to support a cruise liner so that would have to mean stop for cruisers. This could be a sign!

My May 2013 eastbound Transatlantic cruise costs only $8 pp more than my 7-night Dec. Fantasy cruise! TA cruises are among the least expensive.

I'd love to do a rail journey on the Rocky Mountaineer, but they are quite pricey.

The Wonder was on the port calendars in Hawaii for 9 consecutive days for Sept. 2013 - but there will be NO Hawaii repo cruises next year. Don't get your hopes up based on one day in Gibraltar.

Thanks for the info. No hopes up as we are on the EBPC in Sept 2013. Just thought it was interesting.

Cheers

We got off the Wonder 6-14-13. While aboard, I asked about the 2013 and 2014 DCL schedule, specifically the possibility of a WBTA. According to Pierre and Lisa, officers in the hotel services end of the cruise line, a lot depends on the decisions being made at an excutive meeting that was being held the week we were aboard. Apparently there was a meeting of the highest Disney executives, chaired by Robert Iger, to decide business directions, including the budget and overall business plan for the Magic. That would determine the scope of the drydocking for the ship. So while they could not tell me anything in part due to confidentiality directives it was in large part because a lot is yet undecided. They did say that Magic would be drydocked in Spain, not Germany nor Italy.

I got closed lips and a shake of the head (NO) when I asked about WBTA during booking at Future Cruise Desk while on the 10/20/12 Fantasy.

Rock & Roll Cruise!

I fear that is now the answer as it is less than 12 months to the expected date, bearing in mind that previous years have been released almost two years in advance.
This is one of the reasons we have settled on WDW for September 2013 so we are not caught out last minute trying to find an alternative
