How far ahead do the dates usually get announced? My wife and I just returned from our honeymoon and first cruise EVER on the Fantasy (12/1-12/8). We have already booked the RCI Liberty of the Seas for next December. But I'd really much rather go on a Podcast Cruise! I'm hoping the dates will be released before my final payment is due on this cruise. My wife will not travel during hurricane season, no way no how...so I'm waiting to see the dates for 5.0. Im really hoping for December or January. Anyway, crossing my fingers! Hope to hear soon.
