I am currently booked on an Eastern for the end of May 2014, but I'm thinking about postponing until Thanksgiving. So I just went to the Grand Cayman port schedule to see if I could figure out if the Fantasy will be doing an Eastern or Western for Thanksgiving. I noticed that right about Thanksgiving timeframe the Fantasy falls off the Grand Cayman schedule completely. It does not show up at all on the December schedule. The Wonder starts every Wednesday right about the same time.

What could this possibly mean for the Fantasy? Will DCL actually change up the Fantasy's alternating Eastern and Western schedule?

We did three in 2012. From Mar 26, 2012 to February 16, 2013 my wife will have done five! (That is over the top. Cool, and over the top.)

Love it!! I thought I would HATE cruising so I took my little 8 yo on one in Nov and now I can't stop booking. I'm headed on my 2nd one next week. Jan 2014-Dec 2014 I will be cruising 4 times. I am glad I am not the only one.

Hm. The GC tender fee is going up and carnival is threatening to drop it...

We did 4 in 2011 but 1 was non-DCL. The variety there was nice

To be honest, I can't see what people are getting excited about. Seems same old, Magic coming to Europe again, doing the same itineraries.

Are people really that stoked about a 9 night Alaskan when the Wonder has been going there for a while?

I really hope this doesn't come across as offensive, I don't mean it to be!
I agree. We did the 11 night southern carib over Christmas 2010. Great ports, including Guadeloupe, Martinique, and Barbados. Would love to see that as a 2014 holiday option again. DCL originally planned the 11 day Christmas to be followed by a 10 day over New Years. We booked the 10 day and a few months prior, we were informed that the 10 day was converted to B2B Nassau 5 days. Presumably the 10 day didn't sell well enough. The 11 night was really great on the Magic, it would be even better on one of the new ships.

Again, there was a source on some of the new stuff (I don't consider all Easterns on the Fantasy exciting or "new"), but we need to use the public stuff to back it up so they don't get in trouble..... And who knows, it could all be wrong.
