I'm wondering if there will be no Baltics if evidence cannot be found?? I have done Norwegian Fjords already a couple of years ago I wonder if it was supposed to be Baltics until Disney realised how successful Frozen was and changed it and that's why the announcement is late?? So upset if there won't be Baltics

Magic in Dover

Hi

Just popped into this thread to say that we are waiting for a Baltics too, our PIF for Venice is looming and I need to switch to something, as we won a holiday which clashes with our Magic trip this year. I was hoping to avoid booking a dummy, but looks like DCL are taking their time.

However, I do know that the Magic is scheduled to dock in Dover. I can't really say how I know and I haven't been given the dates, but it is on good authority that things are being finalised with regards transport and people movement.

We have done the Baltics once before (not on DCL) and it was fantastic.

Oh, I hope. My sister lives in East Sussex, and if we depart from there she will definitely come on the cruise with us. If there is a Copenhagen departure she may back out.

I would be beyond ecstatic if DCL heads to Norway and it sails from Dover again as I'm in London.

Ok, keeping an eye on this one as my hubby lived in Norway several years growing up and wants to return. We will have a 9 and 6 year old son in 2015. What is so special about cruising the fjords? (I personally find warm sun and sand blissful!) Is there anything for the young ones in port or is it just dragging them around on a history lesson? Those that have sailed in this baltic or Norway itinerary on other lines, I would love to hear from you, esp regarding any experiences with school age children. TIA

If it's a disney cruise you can guarantee they find excursions to suit kids. Most of the Europe ports of call have tours which include special youth activities. It's not so much a history lesson but beautiful scenery in Norway. Until we know what other ports are included its hard to start researching. But remember you can always leave the kids in the clubs on some days and go out alone. Weather wise we did Norway in May and had 2 days of sunbathing, which was unexpected and appreciated. The weather is very changeable and 2/3 seasons can be seen in a day.

I was hoping that DCL would release by our PIF, but I can't hold out much longer before moving to an interim dummy.
Our PIF is on the 2nd. If that date was past next Tuesday, I would have waited, but I can't imagine they'll release itineraries by Sunday. I never would have imagined it would take this long, but as it is, I feel better knowing we went ahead and moved the date.

With the Conde Nast and Cruise Critic reviews out, I gotta think they will release dates any day now. Otherwise, they're missing a big marketing opportunity.

Interesting. I would think a 7 day Baltic would be difficult sailing out of Dover. Getting over to St. Petersburg would be quite a stretch if not impossible and that port is usually the major selling point for people booking a Baltic.

While I enjoyed sailing out of Dover in 2010, I'm hoping they're using Copenhagen as a home port this time. It was a great port and I'd love to spend more time there.

I was thinking this too. My guess would be that they will do Dover on a 10 night Baltics schedule - then a 7 night Fjords and 7 nights Baltics with C'hagen as a home port? Then repo to Barca?

I am just worried that there will be no Baltics. I know we have found alternate weeks on the Fjords port calendar but to have found NO Baltic port calendar info is worrying me

Just release already DCL puhlease!

Amazing what ports will tell you if you just ask.....Disney Magic is currently booked into The Port of Dover for the 10th July, 22nd July and the 3rd August....over to Andrew to work out the rest lol looks like at least two twelve night Baltic cruises and then probably onto Barcelona on the 3rd at a guess.
