So the waiting game continues for something interesting. I assume the Wonder will still do its major dry dock in summer 2014, and the Magic will go to Alaska.

YAWN!

With the rumor that an Aquaduck may be added to the Magic, I can see why they would bring it back to PC.

I would be SHOCKED (and disappointed) if they did that.

It would have to be a much smaller Aquaduck.

Is there really enough people wanting to do 3/4 night cruises to fill the Magic and Dream, every week? Unless there is a huge price difference why would someone book the Magic, doing the same thing as the Dream.

I did not get last years itineraries , but I really don't get these. I am scared to see what the rest of 2014 will be!

And when you add the Wonder doing 4/5 from Miami, really what's going on?

I'm actually hoping they don't add an Aquaduck to any of the smaller ships. I love them just the way they are.

My only disappointment is that I was really hoping to see a Bermuda itinerary added for 2014. Who knows? Maybe we'll see something interesting for the 2nd half of the year. Fingers crossed.

Bermuda would not start until about May so there is still hope.....we went to Bermuda on Mother's day on a another cruise line it was a bit chilly some days. I am also hoping for Bermuda out of NYC during the summer of 2014.

We need to move our dummy date forward but to be honest we are far from thrilled with what we are seeing. Our dates are fixed since DW is a teacher. We will move the dummy to cover ourselves but we will also look at other lines now that we know what DCL is offering.

Now if they come up with Bermuda we will be on whatever ship they put on that run. Did Bermuda last summer on another line (since yet another trip to Nassau was NOT going to happen). Will definitely go back even if it means giving our $$$ to a non-Disney entity.

Just a different take on this because, yeah, when I read the itineraries for the first part of 2014 my first thought was, "Geez. Are they trying to beat the Bahamas to death?" Then I popped over to the blog again. I know I haven't been hip to the cruises for a terribly long time but it stood out to me that there's 1 pic of a ship at CC, a short sentence pointing people to "more options to visit Castaway Cay", which is followed closely by the ill-fitting suggestion to "combine your cruise with a visit to Walt Disney World Resort and experience the expanded New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park". Then there's a big ol' picture of the New Fantasyland concept art. I'm wondering if running 2 ships on the 3- & 4- night Bahamian out of PC is a direct push to boost attendance at the parks since WDW's hotel occupancy and attendance isn't exactly keeping pace with their competition? Just a thought. I'm no numbers person and can't quote stats. This is based on my understanding of how things have been going and things I recall reading here or there regarding the numbers at the WDW resort vs. other Orlando parks/resorts.

That is my theory as well, but in reverse. I think it's to boost DCL profits more so. Attendance at WDW is astronomical vs Universal and Sea World. Not sure about the hotels end of things, but the parks for sure are always top runners. Especially with Fantasyland opening. Tons of people will be rushing to see the new stuff....so they will probably push the Magic hard to new customers as its rates will be lower than Dream.

We sailed Magic during the short period both Magic and Dream were sailing PC this year. They both sold well and I don't think as many discounts had to be offered. Magic was priced very reasonably and that's how I got DH to cave on DCL pricing! Now we know the DCL touch and will sail again when it fits our price point. Exactly what they're trying to do with millions more first time DCL cruisers.
