Awesome tips!

Subbing! Haven't gotten gotten through them all, but am seriously working on it...lol I loved all the pillow case/ photo mat ideas. I don't know if anyone else has posted this idea, but what I'm doing for our April 19, 2014 EC Cruise on Fantasy is transferring pictures of the kids and myself onto a white sheet, having it signed then framing it. I have it planned in my mind but wondering if anyone has done anything like this.

We've used different TA's. Our favorite is Costco. After our Alaskan cruise in May we will have $500 in Costco cash cards to spend. Sweet!

It has seriously taken me a week to read all 91 pages of this thread but it has been wonderful! We are leaving in 8 days and I am so excited! We will most definitely be doing photo mats for the Characters to sign. Bring on the tips!

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.
I never saw a direct response to your question! So I wanted to make sure you did indeed get it:
You can book while onboard, and by doing so get a discount and future OBC. We got 10% off with $200 OBC. You pick a specific date/ship/itinerary however, this can always be changed to different date. I am not sure the specific restrictions however, on how far out but ours was 1 year away and I believe I've heard others book very quickly or even 2 years from the date as well. Our friends did book 2 rooms and therefore got $200 OBC for each room!
Hope that helps!

In answer to another question; if you book two cabins for the same cruise and decide you only need one in the future, merely cancel the reservation for one cabin and your deposit will be refunded. However, the door does not swing both ways. If you book only one cabin and later decide you need another, you will not receive the discount and OBC for the new reservation. The only real downside to booking the second cabin is the down payment and having the two reservations under different passenger names.

Black photo matboard with silver and gold markers for character autographs is beautiful and perfect for formal night pics.

Breakfast

I've been reading to order breakfast through room service the morning of castaway cay so that you can get off of the boat sooner

I don't see how it would get you off the boat sooner. As soon as we got dressed we went to the buffet, grabbed a table, grabbed trays and got our food. No problem and no delays.

That will probably work for any port stop, line we have a Port Canaveral stop & day at WDW... will get us off the boat quicker! 😀

Maybe just more time in your room to get ready & eat at the same time...

Well either we are getting ready or we are eating. I can't really put make up on and eat at the same time. Plus we're on vacation. We don't like hurrying and stressing out. We like to relax and enjoy our food. Castaway Cay isn't going anywhere. A few extra minutes won't make any difference

See we are in no rush to get off the boat. It's vacation time which means slow down and smell the roses. relax. What's the rush? In fact the last morning on the boat we like to stretch it out and enjoy our last bit of time there. So we get up early and get to our morning dining rotation. We always ask for late dining so on the last day our breakfast rotation isn't at a ridiculously early hour

I agree. I don't see how it would make a difference if you order room service or go to Cabanas. Cabanas opens for continental breakfast at 7:00 and full buffet at 7:30. All ashore isn't until 8:30 so you would have plenty of time either way. But to each their own.

Our rush on WDW day is making our bus there...

But us to, it's vacation - what's the rush! That was just my thought as to why they thought it was faster...
