I thought since the other cruise thread was over 2,000 posts that we should start a new one.

We can discuss upcoming cruise plans as well as those cruises we hope to/wish to plan. Plus any cruise news and/or questions. :)

Did you see DCL released 2013 for the Wonder & the Magic.

I will have to go check it out. :) Seems odd that they would sail out of Miami & not add Key West. I wish Carnival would release the rest of 2013. I would love to go on a Magic cruise for Thanksgiving 2013. Of course, it is just a wish right now & may be forever but it would be fun to price it anyway.

Here is what I found. Looks like they will include Key West. That just makes sense to me so I'm glad they are doing it. I would like to do one of those cruises. I'm gonna check on the DCL site & see what they are going for.

Starting in December of this year, Disney Cruise Line will depart for the first time from Miami! The Disney Wonder will sail four- and five-night cruises from the Port of Miami to the Bahamas and the Western Caribbean.

Ports of call may include Cozumel, Mexico; Grand Cayman; Key West and Nassau, Bahamas, and many of the Caribbean voyages will include a stop at Disney Cruise Line’s private island, Castaway Cay.

From what you can tell, does the information stop for the Magic/Wonder around September?

I went on the DCL site and nothing really shows up?? I saw the itinerary for Dec 2012 New Years cruise from Miami and that looked interesting but you can't check prices or anything yet. Like you said, looks like Wonder will be out of Miami doing 5 & 6 night cruises.

If they just shared the itineraries today - I would guess tomorrow and/or Thursday gold & platinum would get to book first.

Did you see the Wonder is doing a Panama Canal cruise in May 2013? Heading from Miami to LA for repositioning in Alaska for the summer 2013. That would be a cool cruise, expensive, but cool. :)

Yea, I couldn't go on there either b/c of the boys. Plus, they stop in Cartagena, Columbia and if I remember correctly, that is pretty much where the drug lords live. LOL Not a big draw for me. If I'm gonna spend the money on that kind of cruise I don't want to stop somewhere that unsafe.

I did love cruising with Disney but I want to try other lines. I am really, really wanting to get on that Carnival Magic ship! I'm gonna do it-eventually. :) Plus, my little world cruiser will get to try out the Epic before I do and who knows, he could come back begging to back on that ship instead of the Dream. :) I would like to try the DCL Fantasy too but I think I'd want to try the Oasis/Allure first. Ahhhh...so many ships, so little money. LOL!!
