Adding family to a stateroom on a B2B

I have a complicated problem that I really need help with....We have a B2B with 5 of us in the same 4A stateroom on both cruises DH however, would like his own cabin-he likes to watch TV at all hours, order room service etc. I can not change our stateroom on the first cruise since it is on points. However, I am hoping to drop DH and one of the children (and leave them home-lol), they are on cash-so, hopefully can be dropped... If I use the cash I paid for them-I can rebook a stateroom for them for the first 4 nights for just a little bit more $$. Two cabins on the second cruise would cost a lot more...So, here's the real question-can I just leave the 3 night cruise as is? In other words, 3 of us will be in the 4A on the first cruise and then the other 2 will join us on the second cruise-will this work? At least DH will get 4 out of the 7 nights to stay up late without breaking the bank! Any other ideas greatly appreciated!

I am all for dropping DH like a hot potato.

Seriously tho, if you are dropping 3rd and 4th berths, you will be paying more for a separate room where they occupy the first 2 berths since add on passengers are always much less than the primary people occupying the rooms.

Thanks for the advice about DH I dug up the DVC confirmation and apparently I paid cash for DH and one child-so, if I drop them and subtract the $95 change fee-it will only be $300 or so to give DH his privacy and tv time-and of course my quiet time as well

Each cruise on a B2B is handled separately -- your reservations are separate, you check in for each one separately, your onboard account is separate, etc. So there is no reason the cabin set up has to be the same or the people who aren't in your cabin on the first part can't be in your cabin for the second part.

So if you found an option that works for you having separate rooms on the first part, I say go for it.

Make sure that there is a stateroom available first! Depending on when you are going, there have been many posts about cruises being booked.

Katherine-I did not understand what you meant last night-but now I do!! If I drop my DH from our DVC reservation to get the cash refund on him to book his own room-they will move one of the children into the second passenger position-which means more points (which I don't have) or the same amount of cash that I was using to book DH new room...At this point I do not think it is worth $1500 to let him have his own room for 4 nights... Does anyone have any other suggestions. Splitting our 3 night into two cabins is also around $1000....
