On the Fantasy. St. Maarten port calendar lists the Fantasy there every week.

Grand Cayman port lists the Wonder every week, so Westerns would be there.

It is honorable that you are searching for backup for the information your source gave you to ensure that they do not get in trouble. Without that backup, the blame would surely lead quickly to only a few people. I think we all have seen what happens when DCL execs find out there has been a leak -- most recently with the Parrot Cay, Spa and Topsider's renovation renderings. Much more considerate than someone who simply repeats anything and everything they think they hear, passing it off as their own information, with no regard of who might be penalized by that information being published. Some people just want all the attention that goes with being "the first" to get the information out there. If they do that, they need to be willing to accept the criticism when it doesn't all pan out.

Well if someone is leaking info from inside then they should be prepared to be punished. Dumb way to lose your job imo.

And THAT is precisely why it's still under wraps. Scott said if he doesn't get it posted before its officially released, so be it.

With the 9-night Sitka on the DCL site map, Alaska is most likely a go in 2014

No, we haven't all seen what happens. I did see the pics that were posted. Did someone lose their job for that?

I would never risk losing my job over something so stupid. I work in a hosp that has made flu shots mandatory. A coworker forged a note from her dr that she had one at their office. It was investigated and discovered she hadn't been seen there in 3 yrs. So a single mom making almost 6 figures loses her job 2 weeks before Christmas. I felt so bad but people will do risky things sometimes. I don't get it.

Yup I've seen ppl fired for bragging about seeing celebrities files. One even accessed one and discussed it on the radio. Sheesh!!

I was referring to the fact that within hours of the link being discovered and posted on the DIS boards, every single confidential link that was available previously had been taken down. DCL monitors this board, and likely others on the internet. Someone probaby got in a lot of trouble -- whether it included losing their job or not. The information was obviously not intended by Disney to be available online without restricted access.

BTW, that thread has the link to a blog that has screenshots of the renovations so you can check them out there.

I saw the pictures on the dry dock manufacturers website only - so perhaps it was someone on their side that got into trouble? Not someone from DCL?

Fingers crossed, as I may have to move my May '13 REPO to 2014.

This is not directed toward you, exactly, but I kinda think this is why DCL is waiting to release these....they have too many Med cruises, Transatlantic, Panama Canal, this year's Alaska cruises where the PIF dates are/were in January...

Had they released the 2014 itineraries earlier...they probably would have seen more cancellations than is usual (whatever "usual" is)...

I'm still holding onto the thread of hope that I will not have to cancel. I booked on opening day, January 2012, but because of finances, looks like my well planned out cruise will have to wait another year. When I booked, my paperwork said that PIF date was in January '13, but when I called to verify, I was told that the actual date was in March '13.
