Good question, Lisa. I was wondering the same thing?

If you change cruise dates, it does not hold the price. The booking you make onboard is only good for the 10% off the price you book the new cruise under. For example, if you booked a cruise for $2000 and 10% off would make it $1800* but you then moved that booking to a cruise that is $3000 with 10% off making it $2700. You now have to pay the full $2700. If you paid a small deposit, the remainder of the deposit that is due for the new cruise must be paid in full at time of booking.
I hope that made sense to you.

*I only used these numbers as examples. In an actual scenario, the base cruise cost would be the only portion eligible for the 10% off. You would then add in taxes and fees.

If you put a cabin on hold for a specific cruise, the price is locked in - as long as you pay the deposit in time. However, if you transfer an onboard booking to another cruise, I think the price you pay is whatever the price is at the time you transfer the reservation.

While we won't know until DCL makes their announcement - last October the 2012 cruises on the Dream and Fantasy were available to be booked through August 2012. (The Magic and Wonder cruises were available into March or April.) The rest of 2012 on the Dream and Fantasy wasn't available to be booked until Feb. 2011. The summer/fall 2012 cruises on the Magic and Wonder weren't announced until March or April.

Hoping for the same! I would love to surprise my mom on Christmas day with a fully paid cruise...her heart would melt she has always paid for our cruises and since I'm no longer a kid anymore (I'm 22 now), it'd be a little thank you for giving me everything I ever wanted as a child

OK that has me wondering why people book dummy dates-I thought it was to get the first release on pricing then move your dates.

I booked the "dummy" date onboard to get the 10% discount and OBC since the dates I wanted (2013) wasn't available to book yet.

Question Silver...Gold...Platinum

It's been a few years since we cruised, and I can't remember the designation of Silver, Gold or Platinum for Castaway Club....we have cruised x 3 with Disney. What does that make us?
