Is there usually advanced booking offered to Platinum or Gold CC members?

Is it one day early for Silver, Gold and Platinum, or just Gold and Platinum? Sorry, just can't remember.

Gold CC booking

[QUOTE=Silverfox97;47396803]Yes. One day

We will be on our 5th DCL cruise 9-16 Feb and are planning to book a European or Alaskan cruise for summer 2014 while on board. If the summer 2014 dates are indeed released that week as is being suggested, does anyone know if our Gold status will kick in while on board cruise 5, thereby allowing us to book a day before the cruises are available for booking by all?
Thanks!

In 2010, they did a fab Dover-Barcelona repo and it was sooo cheap for Europeans (we got a discount code). We're all just hoping that happens again really.
I would do one of those. Do you remember the ports for the Dover to Barcelona repo?

Copied from an old news article. Does this look right?

Dover to Barcelona Cruise

Disney’s eight-night "Dover to Barcelona Cruise" includes seven ports of call across Europe. The Disney Magic departs from Dover, England, and stops in Cherbourg, France, the next day, where visitors can explore the Cite de la Mer, Fort du Roule and Theatre de Cherbourg. The third day is spent at sea, followed by ports of call in Vigo, Spain; Lisbon, Portugal; Cadiz; and Gibraltar. The final day is spent at sea before the cruise ends in Barcelona.

It usually "kicks in" when you've completed your 5th cruise, but I would sure ask the CM at the future cruises desk. Hopefully you'll get some pixie dust.

Thanks! We will certainly ask, and keep our fingers crossed for a sympathetic CM

This is correct. You will not be Gold until the completion of your fifth cruise. We got to Platinum with our last cruise. While in San Juan I pulled up the onboard booking we had made on my phone and noticed we were still Gold. On the day we disembarked I looked again and we were Platinum. So you will not get the Gold benefits while on your fifth cruise. During that time you will still be Silver.

I thought someone posted that cruisers onboard can book with platinum & gold. Maybe I misread that?

I thought someone said they were still able to book despite not being gold or platinum.

It can't hurt to try.
