Ok, so I am not so great at searching this site and could use some help. We are cruising this coming April 2012 and would also like to cruise April 2013. I have read the rumored realease dates for 2013 being Oct. Is it better to book in Oct. or wait and book onboard in April. What is the benefit of booking onboard? And is a dummy date just a made up date. For example if we want to travel in 2014 and those dates are not out we can book a fake cruise for sometime in 2013 and bump in back? Do you just bump in back when the rates come out? Help please!!!
