Make sure that you are using the right code. KFO is for Galveston. KFM is for Miami. Neither is KSF. Also, it seems to only let you search for 1 child. My friend who is cruising with me in May searched for kids sail free in April from Galveston and noticed that it repeatedly said "sold out" when he searched for both kids. It let him have one child free, but not two.

I heard from a cast member, that they all got emails within the last week or so offering select cruises for $40 a night pp. Maybe that's why inventory seems to be plentiful one day and then the next disappear. I think I need to go fill out an application at the Disney Store right now!!

Interesting I was going to mention that I was on the DCL website during my lunch today and could have sworn I went directly from the special offers page and was just messing around with the kids sail free and I think I put in the 4/8 sailing from Miami and since I only have one child it clearly showed me the total with the child free. I was online about 12:15pm EST time today

There is still availability right now for Caribbean out of Miami (KFM) for ONE child. If you put two, nothing comes up. Also, if entering 3 Adults and 1 child, there is no availability. Basically, many empty cabins that can accommodate a max of three per room.

The following dates are showing 4/8, 4/13, 4/22, 4/27. All 3 types of cabins for all of them.

EDIT: For Galveston (KFO) there is one cruise available for Bahamas, on 4/26 - Also max 2 adults and ONE child and all three types of cabins.

We almost didn't get a cabin out of Galvston for the 4-26 sailing. W/2 kids it was showing sold out. Next day about 4 cabins came available and we snatched one. Day after that they seemed sold out again.

At this point I think you'd be lucky to get one. Yes it's for April, but really that's only 86 days till our cruise. (Not that I'm counting or anything lol)

I keep telling DH to go work there on the weekends but he's ignoring my suggestion

Yep ~ that's exactly what I looked up! : I am confident I saw the kids sail free on the home page earlier at lunch but agree with others the specials can disappear and reappear at any time.

I hope others that are needing it can work it out

I am sure I saw it on the home page this morning also. Guess the ships filled up, so they took it off. Hoping they do it again for my cruise in May. Fingers crossed.

I booked 2 just last Monday for 4/27 Miami. It's been available on and off all week.

It could also be the age of 1 of the kids as there are limits to how many children of a specific age range can be on each cruise.

Question

If you were to book using only one kid for the free kids offer, for a room that says it sleeps 3 or 4,would you be able to add a second kid on for free later, or would they make you pay the regular rate? I'm just wondering why you can't choose two kids if the room can sleep four...

not all rooms do sleep 4 and it also goes by muster stations, there are only so many people per muster station also, so even if a room does sleep 4 there may not be room in the lifeboats in that area
