I am new to cruising and anytime we were at Disney World I did not book for future trips. I see that you can book for a future cruise while onboard at a reduced rate. A few questions:

1. How far out can you typically book?

2. We are going in April '13, could we book for December '14 then change the date to anytime and vise versa if we booked for April '14 can we make it Dec '14 at a later date?

3. I take it from what I have read that this does not exclude you from using a travel agent?

4. Can I book for 2 staterooms initially? We have 2 this time. What if I decide we only need one at a later date? If i book for one can we change to 2 with the same incentives at a later date?

5. Do you book for a specific cruise? i.e.: Alaska, Bahamas etc, Can this be changed to something else or do you have to go to the destination you first chose?

Sorry if this seems like simple questions but I am thinking if we really like it taking another cruise may be in the future. Thanks for any help.

By the way I just got done reading ALL 83 pages! Took a few days but was well worth it. Thanks to everyone that has posted, the tips are great and I can say I feel a little more prepared now.

Consider making this a new thread you will probably get more complete responses as these are big questions. Plus it will keep the info on the boards more organized.

On the Wonder DS and DH love to fill their plate with wings and hot dogs from Diversions and bring it back to the stateroom.

I'm on your cruise 1/26/13 12 days can't wait.

These tips are great. It has taken over 2 days this weekend to read this thread. Looks like we will be packing extra treats for the kids staff.
