DCL did as you see put on coaches and many people preferred these for connivence, they however were very expensive.

I was searching the ports in Norway last night. I can definitely find the magic's specs on the geiranger port page, but no where else in Norway. None of the ships were named where I was looking. There were some bookings at Bergen with nothing listed other than arrival and departure times, but the dates did not line up with the copenhagen dates we know.

I think they have been hidden or taken down pending an announcement.

Yes, just seems strange they left geiranger up. But maybe it's a teaser.

Some ports refuse to take them back down, there is a limit to DCL power and maybe that port thinks its booked and also they wont be back for five years.

To be honest, now there are more leaks than an old water can and DCL knows we all know, so pulling them down isn't going to fool anyone now.

Hey

So we have a rough idea where the magic is going next year and a lot of people seem to be very excited

However if travelling from Dover and into uk is the bay a biscuit not very very rough ?

Also the places it goes eg Iceland, mybe Ireland, ferrio Islands etc, would people not rather go to places that are more warner

I am doing the magic this year and was going to next year but don't want the same places and the only other one I can do around Europe is the one from Copenhagen which seems to be going to colder places. Why is people so excited about the places it's going to


I am now more leaning towards ncl epic that's going around the canaries and Morocco wish disney would do one like that

Don't get me wrong if that's the cruise you fancy I hope you enjoy it but people's views I would like to hear

I LIKE getting out of the summer heat at home, and enjoy going to cooler places like northern Europe and Alaska. I would personally avoid the southern Med in the summer, as it's too hot for me.

The Bay of Biscay (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bay_of_Biscay)? I don't think I have sailed through there. The North Sea can be rough.

The Atlantic can be rough when crossing, as can the North Sea, Baltic Sea, Med, etc. I don't worry ahead of time about sea conditions, but I do take motion sickness meds daily to prevent getting sea sick.

DCL doesn't appear to be sailing through the Bay of Biscay (between France and Spain). My guess is that Baltic and Norway cruises from Copenhagen probably won't sail to the UK at all. The cruises out of Dover are different.

Alright so would I be right in saying the cruises from Copenhagen not going to the uk the sea is normally quite good

Thanks for your help by the way, it's just I had family that went from the uk and they were holding on to there drinks at the dinner table lol so want to avoid that lol

I fancy doing a disney cruise again next year but can't afford flights to far out and don't want to do the same cruise to Rome etc as am doing this year. So sounds like the Copenhagen one or nothing
