It would be great if DCL did British Isles cruises. But knowing Disney, it would be priced somewhere between the 12-night Med cruises in 2013 and the 2010 Baltic cruises! When it comes to interesting European itineraries, I have no interest in holding out for a Disney ship to do them, as I'm content to sail with RCI/Celebrity/HAL/Princess.

We'd be on board for a new Euro destination. We really enjoyed The Baltic Cruise!

I'm just curious as to why it takes DCL so long to announce its itineraries when other cruise lines have itineraries out 2 years in advance.

My favorite way to see Scotland is on the back of a horse. Can't be beat!
But looking forward to NYC again....

Shortsightedness?
To better blend with the way park reservations are released?
Didn't they used to release earlier or not?

This is the question of the Century! And 14+ years into the business and they still drag their feet on issuing their itineraries. Personally, I'm beginning to think they like building up the hysteric frenzy that results

I just called to ask if gold/platinum will be notified first. The CM said they have no word about release dates, itineraries or what procedure they are going to use as far as notification So the wait continues

Or just not telling the employees. When they released second half of 2013 for the classics, the CC# people found out when it went up on the website, same as us.

And what's maddening is that if you call any other cruise line (like Princess or HAL), they may not have the release dates for booking yet, but usually know what the upcoming itineraries are so that you can at least get some planning ideas. When we were looking to book Alaska on HAL, they knew what the 2012 itinerary was in 2010, but told me that bookings wouldn't start until sometime in early 2012 for Alaska. Europe you could book in 2011.

We all know that Disney knows MONTHS ahead where they plan on going since they have to have all the i's dotted and t's crossed. So if they don't want to give away when the bookings will be released, they can at least give us some of the itineraries so we know whether we are even interested

Ahhhh, but maybe that's their plan -- keep us in the dark so we don't start looking elsewhere for more interesting itineraries
