NEW policy re transfer to TA

DCL announced today that reservations can only be transferred to a TA within 30 days of making the reservation.

This is probably an attempt to limit guests making a reservation and then shopping around for the best TA perks after all the "work" on the reservation has been completed by DCL. I guess the lesson is that guests should do their homework and book thru the TA initially. There is no change in onboard bookings as far as I know, beyond the new 30 day rule.

I got it on FB this morning. No, I have not seen anything on the DCL site. It was in the form of an announcement, not a "someone said" thing.

If it's on the internet, then it must be true... Let's wait for an official DCL statement...

At some point I must have clicked on a "like" DCL or something. I get something from them almost every day, mostly in the form of veiled advertising....photos of the ships, castaway cay, "which would you rather be doing now--hanging out at the pool or relaxing on Castaway Cay,? etc. They have also sent announcements of reduced rates and other more important goodies. There are things like "check out the new rates on cruises from XYZ port, photos or ports, etc.

While I cannot swear that all of these things that appear to be from DCL really are, they certainly all "look" the same. It would surprise me if this were not a real announcement.

I'm wondering the same thing. I keep my cruise reservation to myself until I really know we are going, then I have transferred it (I didn't want to have a TA have to move it several times for me).

We must have hit "like" as well but not all their "ads" show up on our Facebook. I just typed "Disney Cruise" in the Facebook search engine and there's a bunch of stuff, including a blurb this morning about Galveston, but I'm not seeing an announcement about transferring bookings to travel agents.

That's just plain strange. Did they change their minds already? The Disney cruise line blog hasn't picked up on it yet either.

I doubt a TA would post this information to their clients if it wasn't from DCL directly.

I just did some searching on Google and found this -- on the Disney web site.

You can transfer your reservation to a travel agent as long as the voyage fare portion of your cruise has not been paid and the request is received within 30 days of your reservation being created. Please contact your travel agent to assist you in completing the necessary authorization form to transfer your booking.
