We may never know which people actually take part in crafting the baskets, but I agree with you that this is irrelevant in terms of the gift itself, as it is a luxury item provided for us by Dreams, and along with their OBC, they are very generous gifts!

I was going off what has been stated on the Podcasts. The Dreams folks seem to purchase all the contents and organize how many baskets are needed for each cruise, then Shirley's folks help assemble and deliver the baskets from what I understand.

I'm glad everyone has been enjoying their baskets. I just wanted to give DU a heads up, I booked a future cruise on the Fantasy while I was on-board in May and put DU on the form so the reservation would be transferred. DCL first messed up the reservation and I had to fix that; soon I realized that I had never heard anything from DU, either.

I called DCL the other day to cancel the cruise (for reasons unrelated to messing up the reservation) and they didn't even have DU notated. You might want to check with them and see what their quality control process is for getting reservations to you.

If I ever book another DCL cruise, I'll call DU directly. The people in the Welcome Center were so very friendly the day I stopped by.

I had an issue like this once too! Not sure what the onboard rep is doing to mess up. After I book online I always contact my DU TA (Hellooooooooo Kelsie!) after I get home and tell her my DCL Res #. I've heard DCL can take a looooong time to contact the TA so I do this so I can get it all set up in the system. This is how I found out that DCL hadn't made the notation... but since it was their error they fixed it.

We did a 3 day a couple weeks ago, and were so happy and thrilled to get the gift basket! It was greatly appreciated and help bring a little more magic to our trip.

I have ordered a basket for my husband. Will it be in our room waiting on us or is it delivered later in the day with the luggage?

The basket I got for PCC 4.0 3 weeks ago did. But I have no idea if the baskets are all identical for every cruise.

If you ordered it from an outside vendor, or from DCL, it should be in your room upon arrival. If not, it will get there pretty quick after.

Are the gift baskets currently available for the Dream? We sail on Jan 17th for a 3 night and I thought the baskets were only available for the Fantasy (which we have booked for Nov 2013)

Very generous of DU to proved these baskets for clients We always book our cruises with DU (Kelsie)

Who else could you have ordered it from besides an outside vendor or DCL?
