Can anybody fill me in on two things...when looking to book a cruise inboard, how far out can you book one? We are going Christmas week this year and paid approx. 7700 for 4 in a 4a and booked it in May of 2011. I know dcl raises the prices as they go (that 4a is no longer avail and over 8k now for 2 people for the next lower category). We can only travel Christmas week due to our jobs and am just wondering if the prices would be that much lower if we tried to book Dec 2014 onboard this year (2012). Anybody have a bead on that type of thing? Also we are DVC owners and are staying at Wdw after the cruise and using the bus to go back. We have late seating on our cruise and are wondering if the buses leave really early? Just trying to plan for our last day breakfast. Thanks for the great info!
