So, delaying until Feb 28 would make sure people kept their 2013 dates instead of pushing them back.


I think that kind of logic (if happening) on DCL's part would be kind of shortsighted.

The more time people have to plan a cruise and pay for it-- the more likely people would be able to go on their cruises.

The less time they have to save up- the more likely they will need to reschedule.

Me- I think I am going to start saving for a cruise fund. Then when I have enough- book on something= not that much time to budget for a cruise on announcement day and get to pif with the actual money so I will need to save longer. Less cruises that way, but also less disappointment.

don't know but if they are waiting for paid in full dates they may also wait until the July cruise paid in full dates pass for the Med cruises which is not until March sometime. Some people think that is what DCL is waiting for, it is anyone's guess at this time. Most other cruise line do not release their Alaska and Europe cruises until March or April. They release their Caribbean cruises sooner and NCL is the only one I have seen that has relased most of 2014

DCL released the Dream and Fantasy through the end of 2013, along with the Wonder and Magic through early September, in late January 2012. September through December 2013 on the Magic and Wonder weren't released until late June.

I was very tempted to book a European cruise on NCL when I saw that their dates were out. Must. Be. Patient.
