My phone's ringing off the hook and email's going crazy. I'm sure Carol's just as crazed. GO DCL!

If you're thinking about one of these cruises, you'll want to get in contact with Carol right away. You can start booking tomorrow for Gold/Platinum Castaway Club members and Friday for everyone else. The prices will only go up as supply of staterooms gets smaller so book NOW!

Aaaack I'm such a dummy - I posted this in the wrong forum...........Maybe someone can move it?

Carolc 04-06-2011 01:42 PM

... moved. :)

Thanks so much for posting this, Nancy! I heard rumors yesterday (thanks to the link Kimberly posted on another site). I was thinking they would send the Magic to Europe and leave her there. I was secretly hoping they'd decide to do 3/4 nighters out of Los Angeles which would give people another reason to come visit Disneyland. Plus the selection of 3/4 night cruises here is pitiful (only Carnival). But, I think she'll stay in better shape on the longer cruises. Galveston is interesting, especially for all our MS friends in Texas. But 8 night Bahamas?:confused: I'm glad to see them sail out of Seattle instead of Vancouver! and glad to see them commit to another year of Alaska. :yes:

I love that the Magic is coming to Texas. But the dates stink! :mad:

There's no way we can pull the kids out of school for a cruise again. DS will be in 2nd grade by then. I had no problem taking them out of preschool this year for 3 weeks to go through the Panama Canal because it was such a special itinerary. But no way for a week to go to Mexico.

tiggernjen 04-06-2011 03:08 PM

I just read this on-line...I wish they were going out of Balitmore instead, it's closer to me than NYC...

Jenn1 04-06-2011 04:10 PM

I am far away from any of those ports, but the Hawaii trip looks just dreamy!!!!! :woohoo:

PrincessMouse 04-06-2011 06:44 PM

I expected NY because it's a huge cruise market but Galveston really surprised me, as has the big reaction to it. Several people were interested in Hawaii but the dates gave them trouble, however one's still a go since they have preschoolers.

kathleena 04-07-2011 11:07 AM

Well being in Maine, I love the New York ones. I would LOVE the 8 day bahamas cruise from NYC. So much cheaper with flights and no need for overnight stay.

I will probably opt for a 5 night cruise to Canada however. Gosh I wish they were stopping in Portland so I could get photos of her in port.
