Typically, you want to book a room with everyone in it that's might be in it from the start. You take a chance that there won't be room (at the muster station for that room) if you try to add someone later.

Because of the popularity of the cruise... book everyone that may possibly go. If it turns out later that someone can't go, just take them off the reservation before the PIF date.

Not really sure what you are looking for, but here is what I came up with for availability for triple occupancy:

10C: GTY only
10B: 1 room available
9D: GTY only
9C: GTY only
9B: 8+ rooms available
7A: 1 room available
6A: 3 rooms available
5C: 4 rooms available (including 5128 and 5130 which are adjacent)
5B: 8+ rooms available
5A: GTY only

When you go to the DCL site... do one room at a time. On the main screen, enter 2 adults 1 kid (for instance) for the first room. Pick your category, and then, when you get to the screen that says "Step 1: Customize Your Cruise," click the button that says "Add a Stateroom."

I haven't

If you click on "Finder" on the top right of the first page, it will take you to a page where you can select the cruiseline/ship/itinerary that you are interested in. Then, select the actual date. The next page shows what categories are available and the current prices for them. If you hover over the price, it will show the opening day price and any increases (by date) for that category.

We are doing the Oct 11th cruise as well. I booked on opening day and literally 3 days later my oldest daughter asked if I could add one of her kids to one of my cabins.. so she didn't have to get two cabins.. And DCL would not let me since the quads for that muster station were all gone. The cost also went up by 60% in 3 days for category 9A cabins from what I paid so she isn't going to be going us this time. As far as I know all the quads went with a super quickness.

I appreciate everyone's help. She did see some rooms available this morning (quads) but because the price has increased so much it has pushed them out of their budget. I hope (pixie dust) that just maybe the price will come down again but I'm not counting on it........

My TA has not been able to get us on this cruise. I can't believe all quads are sold out. Waaaaaahhhhh!

So frustrating. I hope they add more Baja cruises

I'm not sure what that means regarding the quads, but I guess that explains why I can't switch my reservation. I booked two inside rooms while on board (for two adults and two children) and I was hoping to switch to a porthole or veranda but nothing is available.

Plus the price went up so fast! I don't want to pay more for my rooms, so I guess we'll stay put.

I hope they add more Baja cruises too!

Quads (cabins available to sleep four) have been sold out for a while. These cruises sold super fast and price rise pretty quickly on them from opening day.
