    You can't book them yet, but if you look on the special cruises, you'll see the itineraries that DCL announced today. Booking starts October 14th, but they have the dates and the price-ranges for the special European cruises online.

    Hey,

    Just thought I would put a link out to see who is planning on the July 6th Northern European Capitals itinerary. Also, any speculation on whether there will be a shore excursion to Berlin, late night St. Petersburg white nights excursion, or just thoughts on excursions in general. How about the port you are most looking forward to. Whether anyone is planning on a few nights pre/post cruise in London or Disneyland Paris. Looking forward to chatting with and eventually meeting all of you.

    ~Beth

    We met Scottishwee and her family on the July 18th Med. And were contemplating the July 18th Baltic except that it goes to Estonia instead of Finland.

    Will next Tuesday get here fast enough?

    I am going to put in a tentative yes.
    I have always wanted to go to Russia and this meets my criteria. I pointed out to my DH that RCCL had the same itinerary and was significantly cheaper (we love RCCL) but he said "Let's stick with Disney". We just got off the EB Repo so we would love another cruise to look forward to sosoon.
    Sooo.... here's hoping we are on the ship. :thumbsup2

    I edited the title of the thread to incorporate the creativity of DW2DH&DS (Beth and her DH).

    Here's the link to the Park Plaza hotel.

    Renaissance Chancery

    and the Grosvenor

    I'm excited the both the Renaissance and Park Plaza will accommodate 4 in a room; when we did the Med, we had to get two rooms in Barcelona... maybe because we added the hotel portion later on than at the beginning, so I don't know if the other hotels that DCL had would take four or not.

    Anyway, just thought I'd pass these links along.

    We're planning on this cruise, but guess we'll find out for sure next week. We're so hoping for a Cat 3 and if we can get one, but it's on the 6/24 or 7/18 dates, we'll go with them. But since I doubt we're high on IC's fax list, odds are we'll be on this cruise!

    And NZDisneymom and Scottishwee, I remember you guys from the 7/18 Med thread too! We were looking at the 7/18 cruise for 2010, just for the sentimentality of the dates, but would prefer the 7/6 date and itinerary.

    Well we pretty much have it narrowed down to two and this is one of them. The Finland deal is a determining factor here. So hard trying to plan, however, not knowing if my job will be able to accomodate this time off for me. I may have to quit work to pull this off, LOL!

    Will keep you all posted..so nice to the the 7/18 Med cruisers here...such nice friends to be able to cruise with again, if possible...
