OK....I know this has got to be one of the dumbest questions you all have heard so bear with me...

This will be my first DCL cruise (so I am OBVIOUSLY not Gold/Platinum status) and I plan to book through Costco. Can I come here, find out from all you wonderful folks that the dates have been released for Gold/Platinum and have Costco call over to DCL to book? Or would I have to wait until the dates have been released on DCL's website for all of us non-G/P cruisers?

Thanks!!!

You can call Costco, but they will not be able to book for you until your open booking day (day 3, I think?)

Thank you. Hopefully the price does not change too much in that time period. We are considering either a balcony (nothing special, just a regular balcony) or an ocean view. When will the wait end?????

DCL has never done a Norway cruise, and their 2010 Baltic cruises didn't sail full. As I recall - DCL added onboard credit of ~ $300 per person to those who had booked a 2010 Baltic cruise to keep them from "jumping ship" - but that was added after the cruises were initially booked.

I think the post was saying they will be popular.

I was on a DCL Baltic cruise, mine was just very slightly short of being full.

So the reports they didn't sell well are not correct, hence why DCL are going back.

I know what the PP was saying. The Baltic itinerary was popular...the price was not. That's why DCL added the very generous onboard credit to every passenger (who had booked by a certain date)...to keep them onboard!

They also offered the Cat. 12 GTY on those sailings which was the way they discounted cruises before they went to the *GT rates.

I think the cat. 12 GTY fares were offered after people were in the penalty phase, as I recall quite a few people paying the penalty and still coming out thousands of dollars ahead. However, I don't think the cat. 12 GTY fares were offered on all 4 Baltic cruises.
