I agree they should be putting some more information out ahead of time. Unfortunately, they will still get sales with little information, so they have no motivation to change how they do things.

Hopefully I'll do better booking this cruise than I did the last WB PC cruise.
DH and I got up early to be online right on time. We got on a couple minutes too early, and ended up accidentally booking a transatlantic repo. Then spent 2 hours on the phone to fix the mistake. Oh well, it got fixed, we got on the right cruise and now its time for another one

HI Leslie!!

Say Hi to Stefan Logan from a BC Lions fan. Hope he brings you much success.

I see my better half has already mentioned our thoughts on the bookings. Which is pretty much the same as yours.

I'm curious why the Alaska one is $300 more expensive for the basic price point than the ones out of LA for the Mexico cruises?? I thought Alaskan cruises were usually cheaper ones....

So true, however, for us anyway, things have always seem to work out by booking time. Patience.

The deposit is $600 per person per cruise!Maybe they are trying to weed out the people that will double book or cancel.

It used to be $500 and I guess they aren't continuing the 1/2 price booking... I wonder what it is onboard?

Gydell..

I just got a message from Cheri (who is on the Magic right now...)

This is her message...

I asked today and yes, the onboard agent said the land dep. price for the Alaska cruises is $600! So onboard it's half that, or $300. Awfully steep! But the repo (LA to Van.) is the regular price, according to her.

We will be using our DVC points for this! I always said that the only way I'd go on an Alaskan cruise was if it was Disney. We are going to book this on 9/21 since we are CC gold

Congrats...your passion for DCL pays off

For now we're CC Silver (after Alaska we strike gold too - how appropriate). Can you post what you find out about points on 9/21. I'd love to have a few days planning time (DH maneuvering time to be more accurate) before making the call at 5 am PDT on 9/28. We'll likely go with a Deluxe Oceanview - Deck 2. We used our 2008-09-10 for last week's cruise, so we'll only have our 2011 & 2012 pts to use. I bet we'll need to come up with some cash too
