PCC 5.0 dates...looking ahead

How far ahead do the dates usually get announced? My wife and I just returned from our honeymoon and first cruise EVER on the Fantasy (12/1-12/8). We have already booked the RCI Liberty of the Seas for next December. But I'd really much rather go on a Podcast Cruise! I'm hoping the dates will be released before my final payment is due on this cruise. My wife will not travel during hurricane season, no way no how...so I'm waiting to see the dates for 5.0. Im really hoping for December or January. Anyway, crossing my fingers! Hope to hear soon.

There is a DIS cruise on Oasis of the Seas in August 2013, but Podcast Cruise 5.0 won't be until some time in 2014.

On PCC 4.0 John said they were looking at their options but hadn't made a decision yet. Part of the problem was that not all 2014 dates were out yet. The other is that they need a lot of group space, at a good price on whichever they pick.

Stay tuned, but don't hold your breath.

This is during hurricane season. Fine with me, but not the wife.

You are right about that. It's also very hot in August.

I hope the 2014 Podcast cruise will be in December again.

I'm hoping it avoids late August 2014 - I'm really wanting that Disneyland Half Marathon for the Coast-to-Coast medal, and the DIS Cruise 1.0 is in the way of doing that in 2013. (First world problems, I know. )

We could well be in if its a similar time of year again. I don't fancy going to Florida in the summer personally - as much as its nice to get away for our winter, I'd die with the heat.

I hope dates are set soon. DH thinks he may not want to go this time. But DD has expressed interest in going, and bringing a friend.

I'm hoping dates are set soon too - though I know it's hard to pick a good balance of the time of year when people can travel and a time of year that's somewhat affordable-ish for a family.

(Selfishly hoping it doesn't interfere with any RunDisney events too... )

If you look back at the threads for previous PCCs, the thread announcing PCC 4.0 was posted on March 23, 2011:

Fingers crossed that it's announced soon. I've got a dummy on hold that I want to move to PCC 5.0.

With the recent announcements regarding the classic ships, im really hoping they do PCC 5.0 on one of the refurbed ships.

An update from John!

I just listened to the 7/9/2013 show and John gave an update on the podcast cruise 5.0!!! He said that he and Pete were focusing on early December 2014. I believe he also said that Disney no longer does group rates, so the price on the website would be the price for the cruise. Perhaps someone could give more info on that part?

On the show, John said that Pete wants to do a 7 night, and insists that as many people as possible can go. Without having to worry about group pricing, this probably wont be a concern.

So looking at the Disney website for early December...

Fantasy 7 Night Eastern December 6th
Magic 7 Night Western December 7th
Fantasy 7 Night Eastern December 13th
Magic 7 Night Western December 14th

Any of these 4 dates seem like a good possibility. The Fantasy Cruise is a good possibility. I remember Pete saying on the Podcast Cruise 4.0 show, that next time he would like to do an Eastern. But then again, with the Magic going in for a refurb later this year, I could see this being a good choice as well.

I'm thrilled with the timing of this cruise. I've been waiting for this good news! I can't wait to hear the official announcement!
