Hey V! Yep, it will be interesting to see how it goes. Kaylee and I were talking earlier today that we may be looking for another cruise line to recreate the magic on depending on what happens between the 21st and the 28th. There's no way we're paying a $600pp deposit, that's for sure. So, let's round up our gang and find something more reasonable!!! Send Bubba our warm wishes!!!HI LIsa, count us in as former PCers who are looking to do something more reasonable with our PC friends.
It will be interesting to see what the 21st brings.
EXACTLY!!! (and RCCL is a tad cheaper...I know, I know, no Magic and no mouse). I know the cat 9s will now be 9A, 9B and 9C... except for the over the top deposit requirements, DCL has now become RCCL. They do the tiered past guest levels, and the tiered category levels.
Plus, have you seen the new cat plans? I did this morning and the old cat 6 is now only 6A and it's only a small section on deck 5,6,7 (aft)) from what I remember.
You're right...and did you see how they're trying to "spin" it...love their marketing people:Actually it looks like the cat 8s are now the cat 9As. What a mess this new system is!!!
Good one Lisa...yes my friend you are certainly dreaming.Wouldn't it mean that if a cat 8 has been "dropped" to a cat 9 that the price should drop too? I know...just dreaming. LOL!
There will be no cat. 12's starting in 2011, they will become cat. 11C.I'm going from memory here....
Cat 11 was A, B and C
Deck 1 had 10C for inside
Deck 2 had 11C and 10B and maybe 10C also
Deck 5 had 11B
Deck 6 had 11B and 11C
I do not remember seeing any 12's at all.
We live about an hour south of Portland, Oregon...so 5-6 hours plus a ferry ride to Victoria and we're on the WonderWelcome to our world- it's costing DH and me $1100 to fly to Orlando in Feb for our 4 day Wonder cruise. airfare for us from CA to FL is always high
I'm excited now we'll have the chance to not pay an arm and a leg to fly to just GET to a Disney Cruise ship, much less then adding the cruise fare to our expense. Though cruising to Mexico doesn't sound all that appealing to me, but I know I can get flights to Seattle a lot cheaper than I can to MCO
You only need to take the ferry ride to Victoria if you are coming to visit. The Wonder is leaving for Alaska from Vancouver. No ferry ride needed from Oregon.We live about an hour south of Portland, Oregon...so 5-6 hours plus a ferry ride to Victoria and we're on the Wonder
This is just going to prolong our time on hold and on the phone on Monday. Now I have to get prices on 10 different categories and see where they are on the ship and make a definite decision while on the phone booking.Yup, those new deck plans are a mess! It used to be so simple.
Yes, if you switch rooms later, you have to pay the price that is current when you switch! I'm wondering if you might be able to book for your family members??? If you are booking several rooms at once that are linked and are putting the deposit on your credit card, I'm wondering if you can do it all on the 21st??? Anyone know the answer to that?Question: If you book on 9/21 and the pricing goes up afterward and I want to go from say a cat9A to cat9B..I have to pay the new higher price for the cat9B..correct? not the price the cat 9B would have been when I first called. So, I have to make sure I at least book the right category on Monday. And, if my family members can't book until the 28th, now our chances of getting close rooms are less likely if a an A,B or C category is sold out.
Yes, you are probably right about the pricing. However, Disney can and will raise prices, regardless of stateroom category. For example, we are sailing on this year's Thanksgiving week cruise - cost for all 4 of us was about $5K for a cat 9. I was considering the 2010 cruise (same week). I checked pricing as soon as it was released, and the price for the same room category was $700 more - a pretty significant increase from one year to the next!!Good one Lisa...yes my friend you are certainly dreaming.
Jodie-I think, in the end DCL just found a way to make more money on Cat 9s (well, all the categories really). My sneaky suspicion is that the old deck 1 cat 9s will be priced where all the cat 9s used to be priced and the deck 2 and higher old cat 9s will be priced at a higher price. Like it's been said before, tiered pricing, just like RCCL. Guess they're keeping up with industry standards.
I was told that as a gold castaway club member you can book up to 3 rooms.Yes, if you switch rooms later, you have to pay the price that is current when you switch!
