You're right - I went back & tried and I can't get it to work either.

Here's a copy of another link (post #866) but it doesn't work either. Maybe there's a trick to opening a "Goggle Cocument"...

We got 2 pillowcases and a frame mat done for us - 2 adults and 2 kids. I also put in some of the post cards from the stateroom to be signed by Mickey Mouse so I could send them to nephews and nieces, but they got lost somewhere. I resubmitted my request the night before disembarkation but we never got them in the end. They were the only things that went wrong, so I accepted that there would have been so many things put in to be done by a ship load of folks that it was inevitable something would have to go astray. Shame it was mine, though

Still a bit confused about final day breakfast

After reading this thread, I'm still a bit confused about the best approach to having breakfast on the final morning. It seems like people recommend room service, but do you have to have it delivered the night before? If you don't do this, where can you eat that morning?

And, related to this, what is the latest you can still be on the boat that morning (or in other words - when are you kicked off)?

I haven't been on our DCL cruise yet, but since this thread is so large (and an older thread), it may not catch the eye of some of the usual posters...

That said, here's my understanding:

Yes, you can order room service but must be done the night before as room service cannot be utilized the morning of disembarkation.

Your other options are Cabanas (or the more casual eatery/buffet on your ship) or a main dining room. Depending on your normal dinner dining time, you will be assigned to a main dining room and time to eat on the last morning. It will be early!

I believe around 9 or 9:15, they will be politely sweeping you off the ship!

We usually send one person up to the buffet to make a tray and bring to the cabin so it's like having room service. There's no way we could all be up and at breakfast at 6:30ish which is when we were scheduled with early dining.

We just got off a 3 day cruise on the Dream this past Sunday. Here is what happened.

Cabanas (the buffet place) was open for breakfast. Go whatever time. The dining rooms were also open. Whatever restaurant you ate at the previous night would be the restaurant you go to. If you had the first evening seating - then you would need to go to the first breakfast seating which I think was 6:45. If you had the 2nd evening seating you went to the 2nd breakfast seating which I believe was 8:30ish.

There was NO room service this morning.

I believe all had to be off the ship at 10:00am. We needed to be off around 8:00 to catch a flight. I knew there was no way we would have time to make the early breakfast and from past trip I knew Cabanas would be full of people.

So...what I did was the morning befor the last day we went to a buffet for breakfast. I grabbed a couple packages of cereal, yogurt, milk and bananas and stashed in our fridge until the next morning.

The last morning, we got up - grabbed our not so special breakfast and ate in the room without the rush to get ready and get off by 8am.

On our recent trip last week I brought a mat and a t-shirt to be autographed. The CM and the forms you complete both said no more than 2 items per cabin. All I had was 2 - so I don't know if it was enforced or not.

My DD loves her T-Shirt. Signed by all princesses. She also has a pillow case from last trip and likes that. The mat came out nice.....but it would have been better if I took a picture during the cruise to actually fit the opening properly!!!!

We hung around the ship long after our group was called. We could see from deck 4 that the lines were so long to go through customs. We were just about the last people to disembark, even after most of the employees. No one ever said a word to us to hurry and get off. We had no lines anywhere!
We order coffee and donuts from room service on the last night, and we have hot coffee in our room on the last morning. I think you can order up until midnight.
