Is anyone else a little upset that they are sending out flyers in the mail about the member cruise which obviously had to be printed up at least a week or so ago, and with design time probably about 2-3 weeks in the works. That means it was done that long ago. Maybe I am wrong. I don't know.

Sorry it was misinterpreted wrong. We already were discussing this on facebook and since it is now officially the Member's cruise we wanted to create a thread for that cruise specifically. You are more than welcome to come over and join or not. No offense is taken either way.

On another note I feel bad for everyone who was already booked on this regular cruise. I do think they should offer you something for changing or allow you to stay but we all know the communication between DCL and DVC is not always perfect. I suspect that it you are a DVC member who had already booked this as a regular cruise you would be able to keep you rooms but they probably won't give you final confirmation till either right before or the day of open booking for DVC members.

It's a members' cruise with no passengers other than my group right now. So welcome to "our" cruise! The only offense taken is by current "members" already booked on it. We are well aware of DVC policy regarding these situations, so if you do decide to book...Welcome aboard!

I feel your timing is in very poor taste. The facebook group appears to be yourself and two friends you solicitied. I'm not clear on what your purpose is but you are disregarding everyone on this cruise right now, including those us who are members. This is not appreciated. At the very least you should have waited.

Hi

Me and DW are now off this cruise. Not a very nice experience with DCL quite upset about it actually. We were so looking forward to meeting you all. Thanks for everybody's help. We all were so excited such a shame. Paula

Awww, Paula, so sorry to hear you're off the cruise. Hopfully we'll have a chance to meet in DCL cruiseland someday. It is such a shame that DCL "DID" this to us. Kind of shines a new light on their practices. We used to say to the kids (when they shyed away from certain rides) "Now, would Disney ever do anything to hurt you?" They'd say "no" and then they'd go ahead. Good thing they are adults now, because I couldn't honestly use that phrase on them anymore.

OH, and we STILL have not heard word one from DCL.

Thanks for your reply. You are right! It is such a shame. We said to them where is the pixie dust in any of this! We have spoken to a nice lady now at shore services who was nicer. However which ever way you dice it all our plans have changed :-(

Hope we do meet! You sound really nice!

That's not the Facebook group page I was talking about. That was made after the fact. If I was disregarding anyone I would not have even mentioned this or taken the time to apologize for the misunderstanding. I understand your upset but I will not take the time to argue in a public forum. As I said you can join the discussion or not. No offense taken either way

I guess the proper address should be "Welcome Home" ... Lol

We were looking forward to meeting you too. Doesn't sound like you were given the proper treatment. considering your plans. This whole thing is a mess.

Right, they were obviously printed a couple weeks ago, but I'm guessing they were designed absent the sail date. If you look closely, you'll only see the dates noted in one area. This could easily have been inserted right before final print.

Really glad you got the cabins you needed and your friend can now finally proceed with her wedding plans. Thankfully you were able to regroup. Do they allow only one wedding per sail?

How kind. Thank you for your interest! Well I have multiple health issues and to cut a long story short DW and I had decided to do something special next year. So we booked two cruises almost back to back. One on the 22nd September for 4 nights then a slight break at our home resort at SSR then this cruise on the 29th September. For medical reasons I cannot do the 7 night cruises so this worked for us. Now of course those plans have been ruined! We are still doing the first cruise on the dream on the 22nd because we have already booked our flights, hire car etc. but now we have a four day hole we have had to rebook SSR using more DVC points at our expense and only one cruise and it is my birthday on october 1st. So we arent happy. We have been removed from the cruise and given a cruise some date in the future which we can move to when we like but that doesnt really work for us as we have to book more flights as we live in the UK.

What you going to do?

First, I am sorry for your health issues. It sucks that your plans have been ruined. Well we are doing what I have been saying all along. We are now going to AKL 10/2-10/6. Then the Dream 10/6-10/10 for the wedding. Then back to AKL 10/10-10/16.
