My DD11 words at least twice a week... 'I miss Cabanas...'

He wants a Xmas 2014 cruise. I'm looking more at Nov 2014. But we'll see...

Not just a Costco thing. I was looking around trying to start figuring out a plan for our family cruise in 2014 for 26 people. I called to ask about dates and a few other questions and was given the information for the Disney Cruise Line Group Reservation Department. 800-511-6333
They said you had to book at least 8 staterooms and each room must have 2 adults. They also help with scheduling and planning reservations and ship activities for such groups!

Update on 2013. We have given in and booked a Carnival sailing for 2013, sailing out of Venice to Barcelona. Half the price of Disney. For the same money as an inside we get flights, transfers and a balcony. DH decided he didn't want to cruise on the Magic, when it was only last year we were on the ship.

Now the waiting for Disney 2014 begins, so I can move my Disney 2013 sailing.

Now hoping for New York, or the Canaries.

I agree! As my sister-in-law doesn't really want to sail a Western itinerary with us, even though we haven't done that yet! She loves the Eastern and Southern Caribbean!

Come on DCL! ~
Give us more choices in the Caribbean ~ or even more choices for Hawaii!
PLEASE!

RCCL today announced they are building a 3rd Oasis class ship.It seems everyone else is growing and Disney is having issues filling the 2 new ships they just got.

I am hoping they come up with something great for 2014 as we would like to sail them but I was shocked at how bad the 2013 itineraries are and now they have promo's on them and they still aren't selling.

Its going to be interesting we dont want to jump ship but we prefer new places to the same old same old

I imagine the other lines aren't filling their ships either. I know two of the DCL sailings we have booked are almost sold out, but one is at Cmas and the other is during the summer. Our last cruise we had to book a guaranteed room a year out because the cat we chose was sold out.

With the discounted specials I receive from RCCL and Carnival, it seems they are desperate for customers too.

That is amazing. I wonder why all the new ships. I mean I know they want to compete, but it's still going to be a challenge to fill them.

NCL has a new ship coming in 2013 and another in 2014. They announced last week they have ordered another one for 2015 and have an option for a 4th for 2016.

This is a whole lot of new ships. And no one is ordering small ships - so that is a whole lot of staterooms to fill.

Maybe to steer people away from the Fantasy. like "Hey look! We have a brand newww ship! So much different than the last one!" that would be my guess

While all the other cruise lines are ordering new ships, keep in mind they might be retiring older ships. Disney only has 4 ships in their fleet so they are easy to keep track of. The other cruise lines have much larger fleets and much older ships, some of which are probably getting retired when they bring in the new ones.
