    I would say the earlier the better. The rates for the more popular times tend to go up the longer you wait and summer is a busy time.

    Ummmm....yesterday? Book as soon as you know what you want. In the unlikely even t of a price drop, you will be able to take advantage of it. Most of the time the prices rise considerably.

    Absolutely as soon as possible if money is any kind of consideration. We booked our December 2012 cruise 11 months ago. It has gone up $1700 since then for the same cabin, and it is still 10 months away.

    Have fun! We :love: DCL!

    That's around when we booked our Nov 2013. Might even have been Oct. I forget. When ever they were 1st released.

    OP, if you change your mind, you can always cancel by the final payment due date (usually 75 days prior) for full refund. Otherwise you have nothing to lose by booking early.

    We booked our November 10, 2013 cruise a few days ago. Book as soon as possible. Like everyone said - it just takes a deposit to hold the price and it if fully refundable.

    The Dream and Fantasy's 2013 dates were released in October 2011. The Magic & Wonder's 2013 dates through August 2013 were released a few weeks ago. Call now.

    BOOK NOW!!!

    Just joking! Book when you know you want to go and when you are ready to plan a vacation of a life time!!! It is wonderful planning for the cruise! I just booked 1 yesterday for March 4th and I am so excited yet I do not have all the time to plan that i usually have.

    Have a blast with the prep and planning!!! Happy sailing!!!
