No palo dinner available for any night. This indicates it hasn't been offered to book rather than it sold out in the first ten minutes.

We had a hiccup / hangup once before with booking our excursions and had to get our TA to call DCL to fix it for us. Blech. Hope you're able to get things sorted out today. Nothing like staying up late and then not having everything book properly.

Hi Maleficient59 and family! Were you able to get the excursions you wanted or did you find some were not available already?

Fortunately I am not too worried about the Palo reservations. I am sure we will get them. Just dealing with DCL website is sometimes a challenge while I am not a 10 year old computer wiz kid I do pretty well on most websites.

I am getting too old for these late night bookings when I have to get up and be a work the next day. Next time because I am sure there will be one I am taking the next day off! Happy Friday everyone on President's weekend from the colonial capital of Virginia.

I find the DCL website frustrating as well, and nerve-racking, when you are trying to do bookings and can't get in.

On the other hand, we are PAID IN FULL today! Still can't book Palo/excursions yet, because we are only Gold, and our window doesn't open until March 17. Hopefully, the glitches will be worked out by then.

We also added the trip insurance. We have never purchased it before. We are all in pretty good health, and we always fly in a day or two ahead of time, to make sure we get onboard.

But with the Carnival Triumph disaster, we took that as a sign that we should get it! Also, this cruise is MUCH more expensive that our previous ones!

ADDITION: The cast member I talked to noted by our booking is closer than I thought - it is February 28!

I called DCL and they put me through to IT. As far as she knew no report on Palo. She went into the system and saw lots of available reservations but even she could not book it had to get a supervisor to do it for us.
The problem with the Malta Highlights tour for adults is the time in the system to depart is before the docking time. She took care of for us and said it will be corrected long before Gold can book. Also asked me to share on the boards to encourage folks to call DCL with website issues so they can help us. She was an awesome cast member to speak with.

Chk your ressie. Gold booking window opens 3/2. Does this cruise make you gold? If so, you are still considered silver for bking purposes and wouldnt be able to bk til 3/17.

OK, thanks.

I checked the reservation details online, AND actually counted back 105 days from June 15, and you are right. 3/2.

Just goes to show that the DCL agents on the phone are not always correct. They had told me initially that I could book right away, then they corrected that and told me Feb 28.
