Does anyone know if it's too late for us to contact DCL about doing a double dip cruise? He just let me know that he wants to take a honeymoon -- the cruise right after our wedding!

We just booked our placeholder last week, but we're obviously not on the ship anymore. Do we have to wait until our next cruise in February to book the second leg of our cruise with the onboard booking offers or is there something DCL can do for us now?
Do you possibly mean a B2B (back to back). A double dip is when the ship makes two stops at Castaway Cay on the same cruise. A B2B is two cruises back to back.

Booking offers are only good when you are on the ship. Unfortunately, your second cruise would be at the regular rate. But, it never hurts to call DCL and ask.

Yes, I did mean a B2B -- I'm such a rookie with the terminology! That's the answer that I'd feared, but we'll be cruising again in February so I'll just book it then.

Thanks for the reply!

The DVC reservation site and Member Services is going down the same time, so I would guess this is a system wide update.

I received a TA communication that the reservation system for WDW and DLR will be down Monday afternoon through Tuesday afternoon, so it looks like a general systemwide maintenance.

You sure can! No limits, just be sure to move it prior to the dummy date's final payment due date. If you forget, that reservation will be cancelled and you lose your deposit. This just happened to my SIL. She completely forgot and now it's too late. Luckily, I guess, she only had herself on the reservation, not her whole family of 4 or the deposit would have been much higher.

Little off topic...can you reserve a cabin with just one name? We need a 5 person veranda room prefer 8th deck. Can I book this just for me. Money is tight and I would really like wiggle room.

Yes, but as the ship fills, so does the lifeboat space. So even if there's room for five in your cabin, there might not be enough space in your assigned lifeboat, so you will be limited to how many people you can put in your cabin. As the kids' clubs fill, they will restrict the number of kids per age group who can still book the cruise.

Thanks that's good to know. I would not wait long. Maybe book me now and the rest in Jan or 3 now and last two then. Would their rate be what I paid or would it go up based on occupancy?

That's correct. We weren't sure if two members of our party will be on it (though Im sure they will). I was told I could add them later but the ship could fill. Even though our room sleeps more people, we can't add them if the ship hits their limit. So I just put them on the reservation.

Guests added on later pay then current rates. I agree with pp about not always having lifeboat space. A few years ago, when it was only the Magic & Wonder, I snagged a secret porthole cabin which I know for sure sleeps 4. It would only let me put 3 in that cabin. It was so frustrating but eventually I had to just choose another category.
I would say if your cruise is very off peak time like mid Jan to mid Feb or early Dec you have some wiggle room but personally I like to lock us all in early at the cheapest prices I can get and I know we're all booked together.
If you don't mind taking a chance you could try. Maybe it's not so critical to book quickly since the new ships entered service.

Wait, do you mean for a dummy date or a cruise that you intend to sail?
If you're talking about a dummy date, I only put myself on every time. Now that there's a 100% single cruiser surcharge (meaning 1 person pays the same as 2) it's no cheaper deposit to put 2 of us on.

If you're booking a cruise that you intend to sail, it's best to put everyone on from the start.

I was just wondering....

Could it be possible that they need to take both DVC and the cruise websites down so that they can update 2014 information for both? Maybe I'm just dreaming?
