I am pretty sure that Disney did stay overnight in Barcelona at the end of the 2010 TA. I thought it was an odd thing to do, but a friend who was on that cruise loved it.

Not a TA, but our 9 day Med this summer is scheduled to overnight the last night in the destination port, Venice

Overnighting on a ship in port really isn't that unusual. We've overnighted in Maui with American-Hawaii cruises; in St. Petersburg, Russia, with Celebrity; and in Quebec on the last night of a Princess cruise. Some of the Canadian passengers who lived in the area disembarked that night and went home while the rest of us enjoyed the last night on board.

The day before our Australia/New Zealand cruise with Celebrity, the ship docked in Sydney. We were surprised to see her sitting there, but she had just come from Hawaii and the passengers overnighted in their floating hotel before disembarking the next morning.

On DCL we've overnighted in San Francisco. On our DCL Panama Canal cruise we couldn't dock at Castaway Cay due to weather so we headed on to Aruba and overnighted there.

We were on the 2011 EBTA and we overnighted in Barcelona at the end of the cruise. It was great - it gave us an opportunity to do an awesome full-day private tour in Barcelona without needing to find a hotel. We disembarked the next morning and flew to London (along with all the masses of soccer fans!).

Not true. DCL did an overnight in Barcelona at the end of the 2007 EBTA and at the beginning of the 2007 WBTA.

Sorry, Dahlia, you're mistaken. As others posted - we were on the MAGIC EBTA in 2010 - arrived in Barcelona and overnighted - had a full day to explore Barcelona, then back on ship before having to move to a hotel for extra night before flights home.


(OOPS, apologies, these posts were kind of off-topic - this thread is getting soooo frustrating, so I guess we're all wandering. Oh look, a chicken . . . . . . . . . )

Cool! I missed that when looking up past itineraries. That would make the trip even better!

Just had a thought. I wonder if the Panama Canal cruise (which I am waiting for) will stop in Tortola? That would be cool!

UGH Disney is killing me! I have been waiting to book our 2014 disney trip unitl the 2015 cruise schedule comes out.

I cannot afford to do both so we will skip going to WDW in 2014 if there is a 2015 cruise we like.

The airfare has gone up over $30 a ticket while I am waiting for them to release the 2015 cruise dates.

I find myself checking the Disney Cruise site 2-3 times a day to see if they released them.

Come on Disney you killing me!!!!

The wait is killing me. We were going to do Alaska next year, since it's my DH 40th and it's the last state he hasn't been to. Then I caught wind of the fjord cruises and all bets are off, esp with the Icelandic cruise in the mix. UGH!

So when the dates are released will Costco be able to book right away too or will I have to book with Disney then transfer to Costco? I wasn't sure if there is a delay on opening day.

On the Gold/Platinum release day (before fares are released on DCL's website), Costco had to call DCL in order to book for me. Costco didn't even realize the itineraries were available. I had to tell them to call. I'm guessing that the following day, once fares were online for all to book, Costco had them in their system as well. Please note though that Costco's phones don't open until 10am Eastern, whereas DCL releases rates at 8:00 (I think, or is it 9:00??).

Just to give me a rough idea of what to expect say for an ocean view room on deck 2 say ?
