We've been on 2 DCL cruises and I just bought the PassPorter to have on hand for reference for future cruises.

I like the format and easy to find information. It is a good supplement to what I read here on the Disboards.

I can't imagine they are coming out with a new book in Feb 2013. It took them almost all year to get the 2012 -Tenth edition out after a number of publishing delays!

Bought it on Amazon for around $13. The DCL PassPorter does NOT have the yellow pocket folder pages like the WDW book does. (Or at least the bound book that I bought doesn't. Not sure if PassPorter sells a binder that has them.)

PassPorter is our favorite guidebook - and it has been very helpful in planning our first cruise!

We like it to just have a reference when we're on the ship and won't have easy access to the internet !

The DCL deluxe version has pockets similar to that of the WDW book.
The last time I purchased, the passporter website allow you to download the ebook version in advance while waiting for the printed version.
As mentioned this book is great especially when you don't have access to the internet. I love my kindle fire version, since it is a lot more portable and always accessible. I trim the deluxe folder down to the essentials and pockets only while travelling.

This is frustrating. I ordered the most recent edition from Amazon as soon as it came out and was disappointed that there was no specific information about San Juan excursions. I don't see ordering another so soon -- assuming it comes out on time.

To answer the OP's question, I think it would be worthwhile to order one of the most recent editions since they include lots of info specific to the Dream and Fantasy. We were on the Dream last February and I'm on the Disboard all the time, but I still find the book very useful.

I bought the deluxe edition with the ring binder, and that one does come with the passpockets. And I bought extra passpockets.

The post, just replied to by the co-owner/author on 12/29, says they are coming out with another edition soon.

I was shocked, too!
