We have done this scenario twice in the last 18 months, once on the Dream and once on the Wonder. We book two staterooms for one dummy date. One with my wife as the occupant, one with me as the occupant. We pay a little higher deposit because of the single supplement but it still always works out to less than $100 dollars per room deposit. These are listed as separate reservations. Still within the rules for the OBB benefits, because it is only two rooms on one date.

Because they are separate reservations, I can now move these to whatever dates I choose and add the other person to each ressie, different dates for each, and keep the OBB benefits for both.

The people at the Future Cruise desks never say anything about it, They just book the cheapest dummy date with two separate reservations and we are done.

@cwdefouw: do you also get 10% discount off of both reservations, or only on one?

OK. So another scenario. My mom and me are doing a cruise coming up. We are sharing a room. We want to book a family cruise in 2015 while on board (and yes, the dates will be out by then).

How is this done. Do we EACH get to make a booking with discounts? OR is it 1 discount booking PER room? We have different addresses, as I don't live with my parents anymore.

Thanks

You each should be able to book two staterooms with the discount for one sailing.

Not sure what you are referring to here. My post was never edited by me and I don't recall stating the above. Perhaps you are thinking of someone else's post.

Yes, I'm sorry. The DIS has been acting weird for me lately. I tried to respond to a post earlier and got that it wasn't available. When I went back later your post was the first one showing and my response wasn't there. Thought it was the earlier one.

I am thinking of booking another crusie when I am on board the Wonder in Sept. Just so I understand:

If you book a "dummy date" for say a 3 day cruise you get the 10% off, 10% deposit (off the reduced amount?) and OBC. Then when I get home I can change it to any cruise I want, and still get the 10% off, 10% deposit and OBC?

If I wanted to do a 5 day California to Vancouver Repo, would I have to put more down for the deposit? Would the OBC increase or stay the same? Can you do the changes online or do you have to call in?

Thanks

If you didn't name a travel agent, you can make the change yourself online or by phone. The OBC amount depends on the actual sailing you end up taking, not the dummy reservation. The same is true for the 10% discount. If you move to a more expensive cruise or add people you will have to put down an additional deposit so it reaches 10% of your new booking.
