    I have a request in with my TA for this one. I will be transferring ressie from a dummy date I booked onboard. Hopefully the prices wont be too outrageous like the Baltic ones are.

    Hi :thumbsup2 - I am the same, I've been talking to my TA last night and today as I am concerned about the cost.:scared1:

    We are transferring from a dummy date to hopefully a cat 6 - i'm just hoping we can afford it. :rotfl:

    I was also looking at the 7 night Wonder cruise, but I really wanted the eastern itinerary, and as that is doing the western (typical!!;) ) we weren't so keen as we have been to Cayman and Mexico before.

    Oh well - here's hoping the prices aren't too bad - have you ANY idea what they will be??:confused3

    I'm also considering this cruise. I can't believe that DCL won't give us some idea on the rates before next Tuesday! (actually....I really am kind of mad about it...as much as I get mad about anything)

    This cruise could be right up there with the Med/Baltic rates which are kind of scary looking.:scared1: It might end up that a TransAtlantic WITH airfare could be around the same. That's what my hard decision will be on Tuesday.

    We are hoping to do this one also - as with all of you we are waiting to see prices first... We had hoped to do one of the Baltics - but they are a little steep and then when we add airfare for 4 plus a few days in London pre-cruise, excursions, etc - probably looking close to $20,000 if not more :scared1:

    We did the 10 night Christmas cruise back in 2006 and it was wonderful :cloud9: We spent Christmas day on CC and it was great! This cruise has a few different ports than the ones we visited in 2006 so that is exciting!!

    Guess we all have to wait until next Tuesday!!

    Do you mind me asking what category you had and approximately what you paid per person so we could have some ball park figure to see if we can even think about affording this cruise. I'm afraid it's going to be higher than the Baltic, then what will I do?:confused3 :scared1:

    Hi EllaEnchanted -

    We sailed in a Cat 3 on that cruise - it was unbelievable :cool1: . There were 5 of us - 2 adults and 3 children (all under 12) and if I remember right we paid around $15,000 or so - but we had booked that room back in 2004 for 2006 :eek: . We have sailed in Cat 11 since then and that is fine as well!! To give you another idea - we book a 7 day News Years Eve cruise on the Magic for this year and booked about 18 months out with the on-board booking discount and we are paying about $5,800 for 4 in cat 11.

    Thanks m......we usually sail in a cat 6.....just the two of us, me and DH. Since we're booking two years out I'm hoping for a great discount. I just hope it's not priced out of our doable list. One good thing is that it's not going to cost us any airfare.....we always drive to FL. Keeping my fingers crossed.....I really really want to do this cruise.:goodvibes

    I'll be playing on the computer Tuesday morning...at the crack of dawn in my time zone. I may end up with a reservation on this cruise and the first Baltic one also. Three of us DIS ladies are checking out sharing a Cat 10 on the Baltic, but are nervously waiting on those numbers also. Both these cruises are likely to have pretty substantial fare increases as time goes on, so I want to lock in a good rate. I also am willing to allow "The Universe" to bestow me with the ability to do BOTH! ::yes:: I know my job won't. :lmao:

    Hi!!!:lovestruc

    I'm starting to feel sick now - I have a bad feeling that the prices are going to be out of my league!:sad2:

    I've already upped what I am able to spend to the max and I don't think it will be enough!!

    Someone has posted DVC prices on the main cruise board for the med cruise and the holiday one - and the prices look like they are quite a bit higher for the Christmas cruise. If the DVC points are anything to go by- I think 'our' cruise price might be ridiculous!!:confused:

    Please someone reassure me that it will all be ok!!:lmao:
