DCL Questions about making reservations for next cruise while onboard....

I am new to cruising and anytime we were at Disney World I did not book for future trips. I see that you can book for a future cruise while onboard at a reduced rate. A few questions:

1. How far out can you typically book?

2. We are going in April '13, could we book for December '14 then change the date to anytime and vise versa if we booked for April '14 can we make it Dec '14 at a later date?

3. I take it from what I have read that this does not exclude you from using a travel agent?

4. Can I book for 2 staterooms initially? We have 2 this time. What if I decide we only need one at a later date? If i book for one can we change to 2 with the same incentives at a later date?

5. Do you book for a specific cruise? i.e.: Alaska, Bahamas etc, Can this be changed to something else or do you have to go to the destination you first chose?

Sorry if this seems like simple questions but I am thinking if we really like it taking another cruise may be in the future. Thanks for any help.

1. How far out can you typically book? As far out as DCL has announced cruises. Hopefully by the time you sail, they will have released the rest of 2014.

2. We are going in April '13, could we book for December '14 if those dates have been released by then then change the date to anytime and vise versa if we booked for April '14 can we make it Dec '14 at a later date? Yes.

3. I take it from what I have read that this does not exclude you from using a travel agent? No. When we booked onboard we used the same travel agent -- they had her contact info in their computer.

4. Can I book for 2 staterooms initially? We have 2 this time. Yes. What if I decide we only need one at a later date? If i book for one can we change to 2 with the same incentives at a later date?

5. Do you book for a specific cruise? i.e.: Alaska, Bahamas etc, Can this be changed to something else or do you have to go to the destination you first chose? Yes, you book a specific cruise, but the destination/date can be changed.

Sorry if this seems like simple questions but I am thinking if we really like it taking another cruise may be in the future. Thanks for any help.

You cannot add a room to an existing OBB reservation and get the same benefits for that room. You could add a room, but not get any OBB discount or OBC on that room. If you book 2 onboard and later wanted to combine everyone into one room, that would first depend upon the muster capacity in that station if they would allow the number in one room. Also, the 3rd & 4th passengers would be charged at the rate applicable on the day you made the switch.
