My prices were based on our March 1, 2014 booking.

Thanks! We did pay the deposit but we only booked a minimum. I will have to pay the extra deposit for my kids.
2A 2C 14 & 11
Really wish I hadn't fallen so low in the hold queue when I dialed in at 8:00 AM on the dot. It would have been nice to get the glitch pricing, but May dates were unavailable by the time I got through. Oh well. Congrats to the lucky DISers who got it!
I'm not sure what date was used to get the 2014 quote near 30k for cat R. It might have been off season. The 17k for 2013 is an offseason quote (October).
I'll post when I know more tomorrow.
I am pretty familiar with cat R pricing and how it has increased in recent years.
For peak times, for family of 5, it is in 30K range (7 night Fantasy) ... about 20K for off peak.
Summer rates for 2014 on Fantasy for T are coming in over 20k for us, we passed. I didn't even ask about cat R this time
Just got off the phone with DCL.. Prices below are 2A2C, WC
May 10, 2014: Cat R: $20,307 Cat T: $10,307
May 24, 2014: Cat R: $24,719 Cat T: $13,169
So, about the same prices we have this year. I just did a check on the 11 May 2013 cruise (the only one that still had Cat T available), Cat T is $10,168. When we sailed on the Fantasy about 2 months ago, the concierge staff told us they sold the last Cat R for 2013 while on the cruise...
I haven't seen many price quotes on here for January, and I'm taking that as a good sign. If less people booked those cruises today, it should help hold the price down tomorrow. The fuller ships will probably be higher. We're looking at January 11th simply beacause we want to spend some time in FL before and the 4th is too close to the holidays. But I could go for the 4th if it was significantly cheaper, or February if it's cheaper too. We're going to be 2A 3C (4, 6, 9) and I think we need a category 8 (or we could do 4 and have verandah, but are going to do oceanview and hope for a cheap upgrade at port).
Yeah, I'll be up at 5am too. I'm going to just put my laptop on my nightstand tonight and I'll book from in bed!
ETA - ooops, I mean the 18th, not 11th.
FYI - not sure if anyone has quoted this but rates are NOT available online to us (P/G)...only by phone. I logged into my account and could not access any 2014 searches. Sorry - saw this was already addressed.
Good question - not sure but would think so.
May 3, 2014 Eastern w/St. Thomas & St. Maarten
3 adults, Cat 5A
$3944 no ins, no transfers
This was a transferred w/a dummy date for the discount and OBC.
I wish I could cruise in May ...
Well, thats why we are cruising a different line in 2013 ... there are other choices.
We have a dummy date booked for 2013 that we want to move to May 2014. We never heard from our agent so I didn't know that prices opened today. Have we missed our chance at a good price?
Bookings were available to Gold and Platinum Castaway Club Members only. bookings will be open to everyone tomorrow.
Can you tell me what the price was per adult and child? I am looking at a 6B for this cruise in the morning and trying to figure out the price.
Booking Jan 4th tomorrow. Fingers crossed that the prices aren't too high by then!
Fantasy Western August 30th 2014

That is not a bad price at all.
I miss not having to follow a school calendar..... The summer prices are downright EXORBITANT
Sent from my iPhone using DISBoards
the early august were quite a bit more its crazy how much a couple of weeks matter.
Holy cow if these prices stay true...Looks like next year, 2013, will be our last DCL for a very long time. Makes me sad.
Sorry I don't have the pp breakdown, only email confirmation from my TA.
