Thumbs up

Thanks for the responses re getting your deposit back if you Cancel a dummy cruise.

I will definitely take advantage of the dummy cruise booking when I take my first Disney cruise --- it seems to be a total Win-Win.

Not all TAs can be posted here, but my recommendation is to do your research and not just jump at a TA with a big OBC. Ask the TA how many cruises they have taken and if they have been on any of DCL's ships. If they don't know how things really work on the ships, they aren't going to be able to give you the best service IMO when you do have questions. You can search online for Disney certified TAs.

I'm sure this has been answered somewhere on here but I've yet to find it ... I understand when booking a dummy cruise it can be moved to change ship and/or date, but can you also change the number of passengers? I'm not sure of my daughter's school schedule next fall so not sure if she'd be able to join us or not. Should I include her now or just book for my DH and I? TIA

You don't have to include her on your dummy booking. I just did a dummy booking and only included DH and I. I will add the kids when we move the reservation to the actual date we want to sail.

As a PP indicated, you do not need to include all passengers on a dummy booking that will definitely be moved to another date.

However, for next fall (2014) -- those itineraries are already out so that wouldn't be a "dummy" booking. It would be wise to book the date with all possible passengers. It is much easier to drop one than to add, plus even if you are able to add another passenger later it could be at a higher cost.

Enjoy your cruises!
