DVC Discount! :clappy: :yay: :clappy:
DW and I are not cruisers. We did our first cruise ever last summer (Royal Caribbean); while some people love it, it just wasn't our thing.

So fast forward to Tuesday evening. We get the following DVC email:

Ahoy Members,

The pixie dust has barely settled on the brand new Disney Fantasy, and our friends at Disney Cruise Line are excited to introduce her to Disney Vacation Club Members.

Members are invited to take advantage of a very special discount offer to experience all that the majestic Disney Fantasy has to offer, from all-new musical stage shows like Disney Wishes to fun-in-the-sun water play areas like AquaLab and the first water coaster at sea, AquaDuck.

For just $157 per person, per night, Members can book a verandah stateroom of their choice on select 7-Night Caribbean sailings aboard the Disney Fantasy in June, 2012.
(Total voyage fare is $1099 per person).

This unique offer is only available for sailings in June, so call Disney Cruise Line at
(888) 885 - 3770 and mention booking code "DVC CASH" to book yours today.

Be among the first to sail during the inaugural season of the Disney Fantasy! Call now, before this offer sails away!
Since we're already heading to Orlando in late June, I make the call for pricing.

We wound up booking TWO connecting VERANDAH rooms for $4,600!!! Normally, ONE of those rooms is over $6,000!!! :jaw:

So thanks to DVC, we're going to try a cruise again - this time, with the Mouse!

We did the Disney Magic in February and loved it!! I'm the type that likes to go, go, go and my wife likes to relax. Yet we both ranked it as good as any vacation we've ever had. You'll find a lot of "Disney" type of people on board, and I'm sure you'll have a great time. Wish we could go but since we just went, we'll go another time. Enjoy!!

I got the email yesterday, too. I'm quite peeved. The 7-day cruise on the Fantasy would be cheaper than the 5-day cruise we're taking on the Magic next month. Problem is, our trip is already paid in full and cannot be cancelled. I would've loved to have taken the Fantasy cruise for cheaper!

It's too bad it was such short notice. :(

Yes, we would've loved to have done that but was way too short notice and we have a trip already paid for to BLT in 2 weeks. Have fun :thumbsup:

We would love to have taken advantage of the offer but, alas, we have so much going on this summer (weddings, showers, graduations, etc.) and then there is the vacation at WDW in Oct. We are hoping the offer comes around again sometime when it is more convenient for us.

Congratulations to those who were able to book the cruise -- have a great time!

What a sweet deal!!!! If only our youngest son was a little older. It's hard to find someone to take a 1yr old and a 3yr old for a week.

We are on the June 30 cruise. Congrats on scoring two rooms for the price of one. We booked too late to be able to do it.

Unbelievably excited...our family of four was able to book 2 connecting deluxe family verandas on the June 2nd sailing for that unheard of price!! :magic: We could never afford to sail on the 7-Day Fantasy without a deal like that!! :cloud9:

That sounds absolutely fabulous. If we didn't have so much going on in June and a trip already planned for in October, we would have definitely been partaking in that deal. Can't wait to hear all about it.

I didn't get an email. I wonder why? :(

Maybe it's in your SPAM file. Try there.
