    We're looking at that one too. We are booked on the Magic cruise that sails in and out of Miami over New Years Eve 2013/14, and we want to come up to Port Canaveral after the Magic docks in Miami on Jan 2, and go back out on a 3 or 4 day Dream cruise. The 2nd is on a Thursday in 2014, so if the Dream cruise that comes in on the 2nd goes right back out, I think it is likely to be a 3-day. We have a dummy cruise set up just waiting to switch it over as soon as they announce the schedule :)

    They could station a ship in Japan or China and do just fine, I'm sure. Asians + money + Mickey Mouse = winning combo.

    Japan would make the most sense, as Tokyo DL is there and has very high attendance rates.

    January 4 on the Wonder out of Galveston! Hoping it will be an 8 night, but if not we'll be flexible with dates.

    This is interesting, I thought everyone was going crazy that saw this but I saw a blip of this on my screen yesterday. I would love to hear from some computer person why this would only show up like this. It must mean something.::yes::

    The July 13 Med cruise is no longer available to book online. As it gets closer to the final payment date in mid-March, I imagine some cabins will open up as people change their minds.

    Wonder if they'd want to wait longer on that since a new report just came out about more radiation leaks in Japan and contaminated water.

    Granted we're still here and the world hasn't ended, :rotfl2: that would be a nice Christmas gift :thumbsup2

    I also saw the blip and saw "Casa Grande suite hotel" next to the Pelican store. I think it is a picture from Miami, Fl. Strange??

    Oh I think you are right, that does look like Miami. Boo, I like the last guess of Aruba. We went there on our honeymoon 8 years ago and would LOVE to go back!!!

    As much as I'd love to see Asian cruises offered, I just don't think its likely. Disney has been very reluctant to try anything new in the last few years; even the Europe itineraries have nothing particularly new or innovative, just the most popular ports that all the other lines go to. And others have pointed out that when they went to Europe in 2011, they did not do well in attracting the European crowds, they mainly tried to keep a strictly American product and attract people to cross the ocean.

    Asia is a huge market, but vastly different from North America. Cruising isn't really big there yet and tastes in food and entertainment aren't at all similar. Attracting an Asian crowd would require major changes. For example, they'd need kids club workers who spoke Chinese, Japanese, etc. Would you leave your kids in a club where no one spoke their language? I don't think anyone would.

    So as much as I'd love to see it, I would be hugely surprised if DCL tried to tackle the huge Asian market/

    I just wish they would do some three and four day cruises on the west coast. We love to cruise on Disney, but can't be taking 7 days off all the time for west coast cruises or paying for a lot of exorbitant plane fares and long travel times to get to the east coast for the shorter cruises! We can drive to LA or take a very inexpensive Amtrak from Albuquerque (which does all its traveling at night), and could make several shorter cruises a year if Disney would just schedule them in the west. So far, the only west coast cruises they have put on the schedule have been some 6 but mostly 7 days and those just don't work well with a limited vacation time work schedule. And now that the Mexican Riviera cruises seem to be gone, I am afraid they won't have anything in our neck of the woods except Alaska cruises and a couple of repos a year.

    Yah if they stick to the same schedule... I was guessing the first 4 day would leave Jan 5th. That is the one we would book!

    Yes, if they continue with the 3-day on Thursday and the 4-day on Sunday, that would put you on the cruise that goes out when we returned. Too bad, we won't get to meet.

    On the itineraries post, someone captured another new pic on the disney cruise line web site. It had under caribbean ports, pics of St. Lucia and Aruba.

    Well, while thinking about still waiting on 2014 prices today, I priced cruises for November and December 2013 and think I may book one for next winter. :lmao: Maybe this is why Disney is holding out - to get us to book more 2013 cruises. LOL
