Wow prices are high! Anyone able to price out May 2014 on the Fantasy yet? I'm looking for any of the Eastern sailings in a 4c ... right now I have a May 2013 booked for $5200 and praying for the same ball park.

Are these prices really that high for DCL? It's always been expensive to cruise with Disney, but we all still pay it and they can keep charging high prices because we pay.


I'm seeing a lot of spring and summer

Sorry, meant to finish before I sent. I'm seeing lots of spring and summer prices. Are those typically higher than earlier in the year (Jan/Feb)?

And I'm going to back track on what I wrote above. I definitely have a price breaking point where I won't pay the $$$ to cruise with DCL. If I can get on RCCL for $1000 less in January 2014 with my family of four, I'd do it!

March 8,2014 Eastern

Cat 4D 3A/2C (15,11) - $7277.60 ($2056.12/1090.12/985.12)

Cat 5C 2A - $3832.24
Cat 11B 2A/1C (11) - $3746.36 ($1433.12/880.12)

Includes tax and port fees, but no discount or insurance.
This was at about 12:45, she couldn't tell me if prices had gone up or not.


Heck, I just looked and could get an junior AND a grand suite on Freedom of the Seas for this price, same week, Eastern with PR but nor St. T.

Seriously ridiculous pricing!
Fantasy Eastern on 6/28/14 2A 1C (11yo) Cat 11C for $4738 with 10% discount. That's $227 pp/pn in the lowest category stateroom.

Would someone be able to check on a price for the 5/31/14 Eastern Fantasy 2A & 2C Category 5C?

We booked a dummy cruise on board the Dream last week. Hoping for some on a reasonable price!

I think that you guys may not get people to check pricing for you. It requires a phone call, as they are not bookable online & also, many of us have our TAs to do the phone calling. Mine has made multiple phone calls today & has been on hold up to 2 hours at one point.

This thread is a compilation of opening day prices, not pricing requests.

My TA said an 11C was still around $4200 for this date with the above criteria. Unbelievable. $4200 for 3 people in the cheapest cabin on the ship.

Give me a break.

Sorry. Didn't realize this would be a problem. I thought it was like checking AP rates where Gold/Platinum members could sign in to access the pricing.

Its not a problem, I think she just wanted you to know that people aren't intentionally ignoring you. Those of us who can't book until tomorrow are simply watching the data come in like a ticker, so we can get some sense of where the prices are starting out at. Some prices may be higher tomorrow, some will be the same depending on how sales are going. Good Luck!

I am hoping to book a january 4 or 11 cruise for two adults. I was hoping that by booking opening day I would be saving money and the cruise itself would be more affordable...doesn't seem like these prices are that much of a deal. Have to convince the BF now to spend the extra bucks. Fingers crossed for tomorrow!

Does anyone know if it is normally the case that they make prices/booking available online day one it is open to the general public?

Summer pricing continues to be insane. Cat T for the summer (fantasy) on opening day 20K?!! No way. This is for 2A3C

I did grab a T on a 4 night Dream for about 3k less than I could for this summer.

I wish I could go 'off peak' ... too bad
