If it is past the PIF date, you cannot move a cruise reservation. Any change after that point is considered a cancellation and you will forfeit whatever the applicable cancellation penalty is. If it is an OBB, you will not be able to transfer it to another date and will lose the attached benefits as well.

Does anybody know if Thanksgiving week 2015 would be a blackout date? Looking to book while on board in a couple of weeks. The Thanksgiving cruise is on the Fantasy.

From the opening day links in my signature, Fantasy - Blackout dates: 12/19/15, 12/26/15. So Thanksgiving is not on the list.

Keep in mind that for any of the reservation you must PIF before the PIF date even if you wish to move the date again or the booking will be canceled an the OBB discount lost.

This means that if you are definitely not planning to book a cruise within 18 months there is no point in booking while on board and the DCL person you spoke to was right. However in older threads on the boards than December 2013 you will see the old rules discussed.

The DisneycruiselineBlog wrote this article on the subject:
http://disneycruiselineblog.com/2013...ose-18-months/

For info purposes the OBB request form can be found here:

Ah-ha! THANK YOU for the explanation. I thought I was losing my mind. It probably was older threads I was reading. Thanks again for clearing that up. I guess I'll just watch for opening day.
