I'll be moving a cruise to March 8th Eastern for Spring Break. We might move it again to Thanksgiving in 2014 when they finally release the end of the year.

We aren't booking either... We are sick to death of flying all the way to Florida and need a break. Even the itineraries are fine, it's just the cost to fly there from oregon and repetitiveness of nothing but Florida, Florida, Florida this time. There never seem to be any deals to get there since its a good vacation destination. This last time it cost $850 and 20,000 airline points for an offseason flight! Just can't do that again anytime soon.

We'll be moving a dummy cruise to the April 19 Fantasy Eastern cruise over Easter. I am super excited to finally get to sail on the Fantasy, hopefully the price will be reasonable.

I do not think we will book anything. I already moved two cruises from Feb to Sept. Nothing out there interests me. Hope they come up with something different for the Wonder and the Magic for late 2014. Would like to do the Dream or Fantasy but the ports do not thrill me.

Lots of cruise lines do it just fine sailing from Florida - except they go to different locations and longer cruises...not the same port over and over again...

Anyone know why DCL is even bothering to give Gold/Plat advanced booking by a day? Seems a big waste, IMO. Can't imagine any repeat cruisers beating down the doors for these snoozy cruises.

I am booking nothing. I am really disapointed with DCL with this announcement. What a snooze fest.

I am Gold. We were hoping for a southern route BUT regardless, we were booking a 7-night over Spring Break & another one in Aug. The western in Aug includes a new port for us (Jamaica).

Bottom line, lackluster yes, but we are still booking!

Gold (5-9) and plat (10+) cruisers get to book tomorrow!

ETA: Based on your sig you look gold. Your TA should book you tomorrow. Is this a TA with much Disney knowledge?

Really was thinking about doing an Alaskan in 2014, but its not on the itinerary. Boo, I thought they were selling well.
Also sad was the lack of longer cruises. If I'm going to do the same old itinerary again, I'd rather go for a 7 night that a 3 night. 3 nights are way too short for me, and Disney should know not as many return cruisers book the shorter length trips.

I think Magic/Wonder are only releasing through April. If they do Alaska it will be after that so keep your fingers crossed.
