    Awwwwe I'm so bummed it didn't happen today. That's why I try not to get too caught up into rumors here. I like reading them and trying to figure out what DCL is going to do, but when I start accepting the rumors as fact I always get disappointed!

    Well let's hope they release them soon :)

    The Concordia disaster was Jan. 13, 2012. DCL released itineraries almost 2 weeks later.

    Ahhh see I dunno. I personally don't see why it would matter anyways. Do you think no one booked a cruise the day after the Concordia? Do you think that no one will book today because 5 crew members died in a drill or another ship had a fire? Not challenging you here, I'm just thinking out loud because I am mad I can't plan my vacation a year and a half from now BWAHAHAHA.

    Thanks. This is better than the speculation stuff. The rebooking guy on the Wonder is Tai right? He seems like he knows everything. . . . . .. . . . . . .

    I doubt the crew accident or fire on Carnival will have nearly the effect the Concordia accident had. I'll bet there weren't many cruises booked the day after the Concordia sank!

    Every week they delay is another 2,000 or more PIF dates that they risk losing to other sailings.

    So, delaying until Feb 28 would make sure people kept their 2013 dates instead of pushing them back.


    I think that kind of logic (if happening) on DCL's part would be kind of shortsighted.

    The more time people have to plan a cruise and pay for it-- the more likely people would be able to go on their cruises.

    The less time they have to save up- the more likely they will need to reschedule.

    Me- I think I am going to start saving for a cruise fund. Then when I have enough- book on something= not that much time to budget for a cruise on announcement day and get to pif with the actual money so I will need to save longer. Less cruises that way, but also less disappointment.

    :confused3 don't know but if they are waiting for paid in full dates they may also wait until the July cruise paid in full dates pass for the Med cruises which is not until March sometime. Some people think that is what DCL is waiting for, it is anyone's guess at this time. Most other cruise line do not release their Alaska and Europe cruises until March or April. They release their Caribbean cruises sooner and NCL is the only one I have seen that has relased most of 2014

    Does anyone remember when they released the balance of the 2013 itineraries last year?

    DCL released the Dream and Fantasy through the end of 2013, along with the Wonder and Magic through early September, in late January 2012. September through December 2013 on the Magic and Wonder weren't released until late June.

    I was very tempted to book a European cruise on NCL when I saw that their dates were out. Must. Be. Patient.
