I agree. Well, on the decorations part, at least! I don't want to be one of the tasteless passengers, either.

I am not Christian, and I have no problem with the DCL decor on the ship or Castaway Cay. But then again, I enjoy all the decor that mjaclyn doesn't care for. I knew that Santa never visited my house, but that didn't matter. I still wanted to hear what the different holiday traditions were around the world by the storytellers in Epcot. Many were versions of Santa, but in places where the major religions don't celebrate Christmas, it was fun to hear what they do for the holidays, too.

I never associated the commercial Christmas stuff with anything other than Christmas, but I still appreciate the pageantry of it.

We don't celebrate Christmas personally either (we don't celebrate anything except personal birthdays) however I'm really looking forward to seeing the ship decorated - we went to Disneyland at Christmas and it was gorgeous!

Oh but they are the best kind for people watching

As someone who avoids all public places from October onwards, I never thought I'd be looking forward to a Christmas cruise so much! Mind you, its those awful Christmas carols that do me in... if I have to listen to Snoopy's Christmas, its enough to make me homicidal...

3, 4 and 5 day cruises $100 OBC / 10% discount off cruise fare only
7 day and longer cruises $200 OBC / 10% discount off cruise fare only

The following discounts are for 2011 cruises ONLY and are only offered if you rebook onboard or transfer an existing OBB to a new 2011 date in addition to the 10% discount off cruise fare only. Category 11C/old 12s are receiving both 10% and OBC.
Silver.................$100 for 3-6nt cruises.........$200 for 7nt or longer cruises
Gold...................$150 for 3-6nt cruises.........$275 for 7nt or longer cruises
Platinum.............$250 for 3-6nt cruises..........$350 for 7nt or longer cruises
As an FYI - category 12 is now category 11C. Those cabins do qualify for the 10% onboard booking discount and onboard credit.

We just got off our first DCL cruise on the Dream!! We had a fantastic time and rebooked for the same dates as PCC 4.0! I named Dreams Unlimited as our travel agency, so how does it work with getting us signed up for PCC 4.0? Is there someone in particular I have to contact or do I just use my regular Dreams agent?

Thanks!

If I'm not mistaken, the information goes to Tracey Heinrichs. Since PCC 4.0 is not booked full yet, you should already be a part of it....Welcome !!!

I would give it a few days, and you should hear something from Tracey with your reservation number...or send Tracey an email.

Mousefan64 and I are booked. Trying to get some other friends from the dVC member cruise to do this in 2012 instead of the member cruise.

We were already paid in full for 4 days on the Dream in December but wanted to switch over to PCC 4.0 instead & pay the difference to join everyone on the Fantasy. Just hoping it won't be a problem or there will be cancellation charges or anything since we're switching ships.

There shouldn't be any sort of cancellation charge unless you are booked for a concierge room. This far out, you're nowhere near the penalty period.

Well that's amazing news then. she is really excited about the Fantasy & i'm not only excited about the ship in general but being able to meet my fellow DIS'ers as well as the Podcast team. We are looking at a Cat 9 with one large porthole & we are happily switching from the Dream also to take advantage of a longer cruise vacation as well as much better ports of call. Thanks for your response, as long as Dreams will switch us then we'll see everyone on PCC 4.0
