It really depends on the popularity of the cruise. Cruises like the Hawaii one's a few years back sold out in just a matter of days I believe. I am looking a NYE cruise on either Fantasy or an older ship (if it offers a 7 night option). Those are very popular cruises because of school breaks, etc. They can go fast, and as the ship fills the price goes up.

Can anyone help with a question I have. This is probably really obvious, but looking back at this post showing release dates... Some members on the DIS will likely be gold and platinum members, are they able to post on here once they know the dates? Maybe they have to keep it secret?

There are no secrets on the Dis!!! They let us know almost right away.

The TA's usually know a little in advance, then send out their emails to those they know are holding dummy dates. Usually that all happens in quick succession. The results are known on the DIS that day. So, you'll hear about the release on Monday. On Tuesday the Gold and Platinum's are able to book then open booking on Wednesday. It'll happen that fast.

Go to cruisefish.net, click on search, then Disney cruise line, then fantasy, then the 2014 equivalent of the cruise you are looking for. If you hover over the room category you are interested it, it will show you the opening price as well as any price increases. This will give you an idea about historical price increases.

I've been getting onto cruise fish for several weeks and just looked at the page and couldn't figure out for the life of me how to look up price changes. I just accidentally hovered the day before last and finally figured it out! Doh! *slapsforehead*

I booked on opening day for a March Fantasy cruise for 2A and 2C in a 5D for about $5300. The last time I checked that date and category it was about $8600. It just went to VGT for something in the mid $6000 I think. Besides the fact that it is over $1000 more even on VGT, we wouldn't be able to get air for four for anything reasonable if we had waited for the VGT.

Many mentioned the Baltic.
Bummer. Really really wanted NYC for 2015.
Would love to be surprised though...

Would be SO happy if all of the Baltics rumors turn out to be true. We'd book in a heartbeat!

2015 WB Panama Canal Cruise

Anyone else waiting with baited breath for the dates for this cruise? DH would really like to go next year, and Disney only does one of these a year, as it is a repositioning cruise. Sigh. We really need to know the dates, if nothing else, so that we can plan the rest of our trip, as we will by flying to Florida and staying with a friend for up to a week and he has other people that want to visit him near that time frame that we think it will be. I hope they announce something soon.

I booked my EBPC cruise opening day for about $3200 (~$2900 after 10% on board booking. 2A in an 11b). And now the same sells for $3900.

I really want to do a Baltics cruise and I hope they announce soon as if my wish comes true I'd rather "ruin" a day waiting on hold to book rather than spend time in line while on board mid-March to book.

funny - i don't even bother checking the DCL website for the summer 2015 dates... or any other DISBOARD thread for that matter.

I know that the second they are announced, this thread will be on FIRE!!!!

Come on Baltic, Summer 2015, baby!

Would love to do the Baltic again-we did the last DCL one and loved every minute!

But then again.... Hawaii sounds good too
