    So far - truly a yawner! Glad I have no dummy bookings to move to 2014!

    And, of course, we're all making these half-hearted plans to book WITHOUT even seeing prices. Remember the shell-shock we were all in last year when the prices were about 40% higher than the year before and what we originally spent for two cabins could now only pay for one? The prices could be even higher. It will be interesting when we can actually price things.popcorn::

    According to the e-mail we just received from DCL, Platinum and gold can book tomorrow. Mere mortals can book on Thursday.

    If the Magic and the Dream are doing the same itineraries, it will be interesting to cost-compare.

    So we don't know what the Magic is doing after May 2014? Or am I reading it wrong? I only see that it's cruising from Pt Canaveral January through May.

    You're reading it right. Only the Dream and Fantasy itineraries have been released for all of 2014.

    I'm assuming the Wonder will still go into a major dry dock after that, and the Magic will go to Alaska.

    Boy, I can't imagine that the TA's from DU are happy about this; that after all this time, they make the announcement 3 days before Podcast Cruise 4.0! I bet a bunch of them are going to be spending time they'd allocated to the cruise, booking people on cruises!

    I would guess the wonder will go into dry dock in the fall instead of during the busy/profitable summer months.
    I'd live to see the Magic in NYC again (they sold very well this year, so I think there's a good chance they come back), but they may swap things up a little and send the Magic west while keeping the Wonder in the east, especially if they get a better deal for dry dock repairs in the Atlantic.

    My DU TA isn't going on PCC 4.0.......I don't think they all do. In fact, she's not been on a DCL cruise at all yet I don't think....

    Isn't the Magic contracted with Galveston for 2 years? I would guess she would return to Galveston sometime in 2014?

    Are booking prices still at 10% of the cruise cost or is the "benefit" expired?

    I only see through Aug '14 for the Fantasy. Where is the rest of the year?

    I think the Wonder will do a EBTA in 2014, do some Europe cruises, then major dry dock. Like the Magic in 2013.

    Of course this is all guesswork on my behalf.

    The Wonder was contracted with Los Angeles and that didn't stop DCL from pulling her from the West Coast early, taking my chance to sail during the holidays with her. No way I can pay for inflated holidays prices PLUS airfare for four. :(

    Quoting "Kirstin's mommy" on another thread:

    Just spoke to a CM at DCL and she said that the Dream and the Fantasy have their sailings until the end of the year (2014). As of right now, the Magic and the Wonder will only have bookings available until May.

    Assuming the CM is correct.

    It probably won't be available on the site until booking opens to the general public on Thursday. Folks here who are Gold or Platinum will likely report back tomorrow after they finish their bookings.

    Dear God! I Hope not! I was hoping the pricing would be the same actually a little bit lower due to opening day prices!
