If u think about it guaranteed DVC pricing on ABD and the NYC ABD that can only be booked on DVC points may just be the beginning of tie ins between these two related entities.

The NY trip could be paid for with points or cash. We did a combination but were told when we booked that we didn't have to use points. We were also told on the Member Cruise that the NY trip would only be exclusive to DVC members for the first year. If the trip is successful, they will offer it again next year to everyone.

Yup, I know, just that we are booked this summer already and with the Fantasy doing 7-night cruises only, it's kinda hard squeezing it in our tight schedule. I really should consider home schooling...

I told my mom that we can't do the WBTA 2014 because my daughter is starting year-round kindergarten in July. We have a REALLY strict school district.

My mom (who is a major DCL fan) said, "Kindergarten? You barely went to kindergarten! Who's gonna care if she misses 10 days of snack time?" I"m like, "Well, this is true."

Got off the Fantasy today. No longer offering a 10% discount. Was not told anything about DVC pricing (I am DVC member). Just told 2014 dates should be available June 1.

On March 16th Fantasy there was an ABD guide who came to the DVC member talk, but there was no mention at all of a discount if you booked onboard, or I would've taken advantage of that.

That stinks. There was an ABD guide on the Feb 16 sailing and there was a discount then. He did mention to me that the 10% is offered "from time to time".

I was on that sailing and at the presentation. I was under the impression that the 10% would be available on all the Fantasy sailings for ABD. I didn't realize it was from time to time. We didn't take advatage of it since we are booked for Scotland this year and next year's dates haven't been released.

Hi! What a great cruise that was!

When I spoke to the guide privately he mentioned the discount was only offered "from time to time".

Just off the Fantasy on 4/6. The DVC rep implied that the DCL add-ons would be available when new dates were released and he expected them to fill quickly. As I posted on the other thread, he confirmed the "lowest pricing" for cash bookings for DVC members. No mention of a 10% discount, but I did not specifically ask since 2014 dates are not out. He did not mention it at the presentation.
