I would call DCL to make the change since there have been so many glitches with their system the past couple days.
Thank you for telling me that!

So I just called. We are in an 11C. The next lowest available is a 5B. The price for that would be $4000 more than what we're paying. I said no thanks

We'll be fine in the smaller room. Our last cruise we had a verandah (loved it!) and this coming cruise on the Wonder we have a SPH. So the 11C will definitely be smaller than what we've had, but we'll just be thrilled to be on the boat

So folks, everything below a 5B is sold out in one day!

Oh my gosh, I'm an idiot

I couldn't figure out how it could be $4000 more. I called back. This time, they had an 8A available. And the price difference was $280. I took it!

I started thinking about it and how it was just a crazy difference. But guess what? We have DCL Air booked as well! She was giving me the total total, not just the total of the cruise fare!

(I looked at airfare for the coming year during the same week and it's outrageous! What DCL offered is a better deal. I'm hopeful that by the time I need to cancel DCL Air I will have been able to find plane tickets on my own for less.)

Thank you, Lisa! You're my new favorite person

YEAH!!!! So happy to help. Of course that made me rethink my choice of rooms. I looked up the extended verandas on deck 5 and those look really big and would "only be another $100 to upgrade to a 4E from a 5C. Got to thinking about it and they don't look like they have any shade from the sun or cover from the rain. I asked DH if he wanted to switch and he said no. Of course then I started looking up pictures in those threads and saw that a video was of 7022, we are in 7522, and they showed an obstructed verandah. Panic -- tried to bring up the reservation and it has an error message, called DCL and they can't access it. While on hold I brought up HallsofVA's pictures of the ship with the stateroom numbers on them and whew! That veranda was actually 7020, not 7022.

Hello!

We're on this cruise too! It'll be me, DH, and DD, who'll be 17 when we cruise. We didn't get the "blue light special", but are still paying less for this cruise than the one we are taking on the Magic over spring break 2012, so I'm not complaining. Congrats to all of you who got such great deals.

This will be our 6th DCL cruise, so we'll finally be gold CC members. Really excited to do an Eastern again - we loved St. Thomas when we were there a few years ago and I'm looking forward to San Juan. We've done several curises to Mexico and one to Alaska - enjoyed them all but there's something about that gorgeous Caribbean water that can't be beat. One of these days we're going to do a Med cruise but that will probably have to wait until DD is out of college!

Looking forward to chatting with everyone over the next 500+ days!

Dany

Lisa, I started a thread asking if anyone had photos of an 8A. When searching, I saw you mention that your TA was sailing in one. Did she post any pictures anywhere that I can see? I really want to see the inside layout of the room.

Those are the double rooms with the divider, right? I know that there is a thread with pictures of them. Somewhere....

I found a bunch of threads with the help of many. Ours won't have that cool divider (I think they only sleep three), it'll be one of the massive rooms with no room divider. I could see that being problematic, but DH looked at the photos and thinks the room looks cool, so that's good. I'll miss the split bath, but the room looks enormous, so I can handle that tradeoff,

I wanted to clarify this post. I am and at DH about not wanting to do the FE. Not rolling my eyes at the FE itself.
