I booked for January. The price didn't seem too bad. But it's the off season.

We booked the Easter fantasy cruise (April 19). I was actually pretty happy with the price. I was nervous it could be more considering the time of year. The summer prices on the other hand - ! I think it's safe to say that we will never be cruising in summer!

Just booked a 4 night out of Miami on the Wonder for $875 for DH and I!! We're in steerage, but I told her the cheapest room possible is all we needed!

I saw that when i was pricing this morning! Such a great deal!!! If we weren't sailing with a group I probably would've chosen that one.

Wasn't planning on booking for 2014 until the last half of the year's information was released but we moved a previous OBB to a date that we're more likely to sail.

Pretty happy with the rate, considering the others I've seen.

We got a quote for a June Fantasy cruise, but it was kinda ridiculous. So we are going to wait and move our reservation to Oct 2014 when it's available.

I booked for January. The price is ok, but then factor in our flights from Canada and it will be pricey. But we only cruise every two years, so it's our very special holiday!

It really is looking like the summer months on DREAM/FANTASY are the problem. By going to may 31 our cruise price drops $2000. Our problem now is getting down payment up when we returned from Dance the Magic at WDW this week and Christmas is in 3. Really wished they had come out in Sept or Jan We do not want to be cash strapped for the down payment of a cruise .

We've been waiting so long and LOVED the Fantasy this past summer. Our dummy is for July 5, 2014 cat 09b 'deluxe' ocean view..... 2 adults 2 kids for $6133.00....... The whole extended family is supposed to go..... Hoping the Magic will be more reasonable and out of NYC and that we can all agree to switch over. We are a family of teachers and have to go over the summer.

We're booked for April 12 Western Caribbean (my kids spring break).. Only because we were originally scheduled for March 2013 Easter Fantasy cruise but had to rescheduled to October 12, 2013 cruise due to dh job situation this past Sept. and weren't sure. Well then every turned out fine and I regret rescheduling that and we don't want to sail in Oct. hurricane time..

I booked the Magic for May of 2014 for only about $100 more (DH & I) than we paid in May of 2012. I didn't think that was too bad.

I wasn't scared off by the prices because they were in line with what I expected so I'm very excited to be going.
