    We purchased the 2007 version of Birnbaum for our last cruise (our first), but now it is missing (I think I loaned to someone at my previous company).

    I need to purchase a new one to plan for a 7-day Eastern Trip, and I am trying to figure out which of these two might be better. Any thoughts appreciated - thanks!

    Had Birnbaum for my first cruise (premium for booking with AAA) but loaned it out. Just got a Passporter, and love it!! Much more detail, well worth the extra to get it! Only thing I miss is the pretty color pics in Birnbaums.

    Passporter absolutely!!!!

    The Birnbaum one is like a travel leaflet compared to the Passporter!!!

    besides they also have a site and message board if you have other questions... as if you wouldn't get EVERYTHING you'd need and more right here!!!

    If you're going to WDW...Birnbaum by a hair.

    If you're going DCL..it's not even close...Passporter.

    Passporter. Birnbaum is just a big, expensive travel brochure.

    is this true? how does everyone else feel? i need to get a new guide book for wdw and have always got birnbaum. this time i thought, because of the difference in books for dcl, that i would get passporter. now i may not. i have to admit, birnbaums is prettie. more color.
    now i just don't know!:confused3

    HELP!

    Do you get the feeling that Passporter is the hands-down favorite? :) It gets my vote, too. Extremely useful info.

    We're going on DCL in October '08'... Should I get one now or wait until 2008 comes out?

    Color is pretty ... but color printing is expensive, and it doesn't make the information any more valuable.

    The new DCL passporter comes out in January if you can wait that long.
