Why wouldn't it be possible to be Fantasy leaving out of PC but going to different ports?

It is possible for sure, perhaps on some special sailings, like 10 or 11 night cruises. They certainly could add Jamaica in as a routine stop, but the southern Caribbean is a bit farther south. A classic ship out of Miami gets them closer to those ports.

It is possible and I would say probable since it is the southern Caribbean and the Fantasy is their ship of choice for the longer cruises.

Don't think a couple of hours sailing time makes that much difference. I do think the classic ships would probably be more reasonable if they go longer than 7 days because of the Fantasy's set schedule, but they could have every third cruise be Southern Caribbean for 7 days.

Almost all 7-night Southern Caribbean cruises depart from San Juan. Since it takes two days to sail there from Port Canaveral OR Miami, you just can't get that far south on a 7-night cruise from FL. That's why DCL's few southern itineraries have been longer.

Me too. We have 2 three night cruises booked in December that I'm itching to put on some official dates. Actually looked at 7 night cruises in November and December 2013 yesterday - that's how bad the itch is, but with these new possibilities, now I just don't know! Way to keep me guessing and stressing, Disney!

Wish I did. When we were on board the Magic in August, they would only let us do one booking for the discount. So, I booked our cruise for next August. I wanted a dummy booking as well - wasn't allowed. Anyone else experience this?

I've always had a spare "dummy" cruise in my back pocket since our second cruise. Had to use the spare this last summer when we had to cancel after the PIF date and we still wanted to do the cruise - just a few weeks later.

Good Afternoon all. Just wondering how much do I have to pay to book a dummy cruise? For example, my up and coming cruise I booked online. I paid about $580 deposit on a 5night cruise (1adult 3children). Would I need about that much to book a dummy cruise? Thanks in advance.

I believe it is 10% of a regular deposit if I remember correctly

The onboard booking deposit is 10% of the pre-tax cruise price. That's half of the normal deposit.

I also forgot to ask, what kind of discount do they give you if you book onboard?

The perks of booking onboard are 10% deposit (instead of 20%), 10% discount off cruise fare (not off taxes and fees) and an OBC...which I believe is $100 for cruises under 7 days and $200 for cruises over 7 days.
