Is ABD still offering 10% discounts while aboard the Fantasy?

I have never been on an ABD, but am looking to do either Back Stage Magic (w podcasters on Feb 2014) or Italy summer 2014 (or delay Italy 'till 2015 should I go to California).

When I was on the Disney Fantasy this past February they offered a 10% ABD discount if you booked while aboard. The ADB guide aboard said the discount is only ever offered on the Fantasy, but its not offered on every sailing. Does any one know if this discount has been offered recently? Or do they just offer it in the months leading to the release of new dates to keep reservations flowing.

Turns out I will be on the Fantasy again at the end of August. If the 10% discount is offered, I would book the Italy trip (since I cant use the discount w the podcast trip). My fear is the podcast trip will be sold out if I wait until I get back from the Fantasy and I could end up being shut out of both trips (well I could still book italy at full price).

Anyone know if the discount is still being offered?

Disneynme reported earlier this month that they were offering a 5% discount on ABD's on the Fantasy on their 5/25/13 cruise. But everything I've heard is that it's not always offered. It seems to be almost random which cruises they offer the discount on and which ones they do not.

So I haven't listened to the podcast in a while. Are they offering a DIS Exclusive Italy trip, also, next year? I haven't seen anything about it on the Boards, or DU's website...

There is a dis exclusive for Italy in the works. But the timing won't work for us (sept 2014). We were going to Italy on our own.
