Question Fantasy - Summer 2015

Any "well-informed" guesses as to the possible itineraries (specifically the Fantasy) for June of 2015? I searched, and couldn't find anything on here. But I know there are some really well-informed members of the DIS community who may be in the know.

The Fantasy? I'd be surprised if they change the Fantasy off the 7-night Caribbean itineraries. The Magic and Wonder may shift around, but the Dream and Fantasy haven't changed port or destinations since their respective maiden launches.

I'm betting that the Fantasy switches back to the alternating Caribbean cruises for the summer while the Magic is deployed elsewhere. I'm really hoping that the alternating Fantasy itineraries continue until at least after October.

There were reports over the last couple of months of NCL and DCL being in talks with the BVI government about docking/taking over the port in Tortola. NCL has released summer of 2015 and will have their new ship Getaway docking there weekly. Suspect when DCL gets around to releasing the schedule we will find it on the Fantasy's itinerary as well.

If you look at the St Maarten port schedule http://201.220.14.27/sxmonline/Vesse...uleCruise.aspx you can see that the Fantasy is in St Maarten every two weeks on Tuesdays. This would lead me to believe the Fantasy to be alternating East/West in the summer 2015.

6/6/15 Eastern
6/13/15 Western
6/20/15 Eastern
6/27/15 Western

I'm really hoping they do return the Fantasy to alternating eastern/western.

Still no word

I called DCL yesterday and the CM said she does not know when the summer 2015 dates will be released. How do people find this stuff out early? I'm afraid that I will get busy and forget to check if the sailings are posted and miss that opening date for the price

My TA will usually send out an email a day or two before the release date so that she can get your requests. So obviously Disney is letting TA's know just beforehand. Although once in a while I hear it on the DIS before she lets me know, but I just assume that it's another TA leaking the info.

To go with my earlier post you can see on the Grand Cayman port schedule for June 2015 http://www.caymanport.com/shipschedules.php is visiting every other Tuesday. This along with the St Maarten schedule of every other week would lead me to believe the Fantasy is alternating between East and West Caribbean cruises for the summer as she first appears in GC on 5/19/15 and ends on 11/3/15. Also with the Fantasy in GC on Tuesdays it would appear the Fantasy is keeping with Falmouth Jamaica instead of Costa Maya for the summer.

If this pans out... It's great news for me.

To answer the first part, alot will depend on what DCL does with the Magic. If the Fantasy is showing up on GCs and St Maartens schedule, thats a pretty good indicator.

I seriously doubt DCL will ever take the Dream and Fantasy out of PC as they are the biggest and are consistently full. Unless, they build a new ship equal to or bigger then the Dream class. There money makers and I wouldnt be surprised if 1 or both ships are close to or already have paid themselves off.
2nd way you can tell what DCL is up to, is to look at the port schedules for the usual haunts, like GC, St Thomas, Nassau. 9 times out of 10, there pretty accurate.

The other way we seem to know before others, is by not only reading local papers, and news organizations for DCL touring different ports etc, is that there are some who are close to DCL as in working for the company, or related in someway shape or form to someone who does have inside knowledge.

A example would be back in early 2001, when I worked for Disney, another cm that worked with me was dating a DCL cm. He showed me the letter from the then DCL president saying that DCL was building 2 new ships etc etc etc. It never made it to the public phase but internally we knew long before the public would have. Those ships were shelved as later that year DCL took a major hit along with a lot of other areas after 9/11. From the horses mouth, both of those ships are still on the shelf.
