    Can't wait for details on the Magic in the Med! We are definitely booking it, but not sure what dates or ports they will be doing. Really liked the look of the Venice itinerary this summer. Not so thrilled with the prospect of Turkey and Greece though.

    Just wish they'd announce it already so we can get our booking in! :faint:

    It will be interesting to see the price tag that comes with a 9-day Alaska cruise. Not sure it would be worth it to add two days to go to Sitka, but Alaska has a lot to love.

    We cruised to Sitka several years ago, and FWIW the place looks nothing like the movie "The Proposal" with Sandra Bullock. :offtopic: That movie was filmed in rural Massachusetts.

    In the real Sitka we saw the Archangel dancers do traditional Russian dances -- the dancers are all women but they put their heart and soul into the male roles as well as the female ones. Not sure what the venue was, but it looked like a high school cafeteria/auditorium with folding chairs.

    I checked out the current visitor sites (Google is my friend) and there's a raptor rescue place that treats injured bald eagles. There's also a bear sanctuary that rescues orphaned bear cubs and rehabs them til they're ready to go to a zoo.

    I would say yes; just one. Then, 7-nighters.

    man I was hoping for either Hawaii or NY. Would love a Med cruise for 2014 but with the prices they are already showing for the old and tired itineraries, I can't imagine what the Med cruises will be going for! Probably just cheaper to go to DLP! :worried:

    We are going on our first Disney cruise in May. I am sure we are going to like it and want to book again. From what I have read the prices are the cheapest opening day, is this correct? If I book a cruise when 2014 dates are released, can I apply the 10% on board discount and OBC to this reservation?

    Understood, but they could also stop in Mexico each way like the Hawaiian cruises have so far.

    If you book first and then cruise, you would have to cancel original reservation then book a new one to get the OBC. If the price of the cruise has not changed, it would be worth it but if the price has gone up, probably wouldn't be.

    That's because those cruises were round-trip, beginning and ending in Los Angeles.

    For a cruise to be one-way from one U.S. port to another, they have to stop at a "distant" foreign port. Nowhere in Canada or Mexico is considered "distant" enough to meet that requirement.

    Never heard of the distant requirement. Didn't the CA coast cruises also stop in Mexico which isn't distant?

    Again, the CA coastal cruises were closed-loop from LA to LA. The one-way repo is not from one US city to another.

    The Calif coast cruises either begin or end in Canada. For example, the repositioning cruise in May begins in Los Angeles and ends in Vancouver.

    That was my thought too. But there's a link in the site-map showing a '5 night Bahamian Holiday cruise' that just redirects to the 5 night cruises at this time.

    So either a classic ship will sail out of Miami or even PC, or the Dream will do another double dip.

    Maybe silverfox will shed some light?

    I really don't like those short holiday cruises that aren't out of PC. Why spend all that peak holiday travel $$$ to fly all the way across the country to just turn around and fly home? I'd do it if it could be coupled with a few days at WDW. This year I really wanted a holiday cruise but there's nothing decent and reasonable. They make more $$$ on shorter cruises though.

    For Transatlantic cruises, we are having to stay home with our daughter who is siting some exams in May and will not let me travel alone, believe me I have asked.

    Anyway, we are looking for a WBTA or both a EBTA also. I really dont think what the customer wants is what DCL provides any longer, that said I really enjoyed our 5 night on the Dream at Christmas. It will be able to see what DCL think of the tensions in Greece and Turkey, a US tourist found dead this morning which may make them rethink the eastern MED options.

    Do I wait to book on board in Jun or do I do it straight away when the dates are released to Platinum cruisers?

    Book straight away, whilst the prices are low.

    Also you will have maximum choice of cabins so you don't have to settle for something you're not crazy about. Also if you want main dining, your odds of getting are best by booking early.
    You could always reshop it while onboard and if it results in a better deal, then they'll book it to include onboard booking perks.

    Just got an email from our DU TA telling me to be ready - that the rumors of a Feb 11th release may indeed be plausible.......

    Clear your calendars!!!

    Just a thought for those looking for a WBTA. If they are not doing it this year due to a extended Drydock I think it's fair to say it may not happen for the same reason. It might happen but don't be surprised if it doesn't.
