With other cruise lines you pretty much know they will have ships in Alaska in the summer, ship in Europe, ship in New York, etc, but with DCL right now who knows where the Magic and Wonder go. There is also, now ,becoming an issue that if it does not sell well it will be changed.

I have an NCL cruise booked for next fall, but if DCL came out with something new and interesting I would cancel. I plan on using airline points for the flight and that window is coming soon, so once flight is booked I will be committed to the NCL cruise.

It is often the case that DCL castmembers who take your calls on the phone don't know everything they need to know about what they tell you. I have gotten the most ridiculous answers from them on occasion, and eventually after several phone calls and speaking to managers, finally gotten a straight story. If you get something from them you question, call back and ask someone else. If you need to verify, ask for a manager.
So do you think that will apply to this special? If i book one at 10 percent deposit then when the 2014 comes out switch it to that? and I will still get the 10 percent discount and pay the extra if the cruise is more? or do u think id have to pay 20 percent? For me if i have to pay 20 there is no sense in doing all that changing just wait for the 2014 date to be released...but the 10 percent could be really helpful if they are released around the holidays!

I just called to book for 2013. After everything was done I asked when the 2014 dates are coming out. The guy on the phone said he honestly had no idea and they don't get any information until the day before. He then said maybe the end of this month or end of next month. They really don't know I guess. Now I don't feel sooooo bad.

I asked my TA and she said the reduced deposit travels if you change to a different booking.

Hmm....This makes me want to go ahead and book one or two if that's true. I wonder if she knows that or if she's assuming that? Has Disney ever done this before (besides onboard bookings).

I've never known her to tell me something unless she's absolutely sure. She checks stuff out before telling me if she doesn't know.

Awesome. I think I may book me a cruise or two then as we like to do back 2 backs I think after doing one this summer. I have 2 dummies reserved, but I'm thinking of using them for Dec 2013 for real, but would like to be able to reserve something for 2014 as soon as it's released......Off to look at prices...

These are just 10% off the deposit and not 10% off the cruise fare like you get for an OBB, right?

That's correct. You only get a reduced deposit.

I hope they post the 2014 dates prior to 12/16/12 so i can take advantage of this offer!!
Does this include concierge level? Hmmmm.......

Let me know if you book one..So far i have called twice and two different people told me although my deposit will transfer when the 2014 rates come out...I will be required to make up the difference so that it is 20 percent down. (if the 2014 rates come out after 12/16 after the special)

I haven't booked it yet, thinking I would give DCL a chance to see what they have but because of the delay I found the RCI cruise and am 90% sure we will book it.
X2: Celebrity Reflection April 2014 Eastern Carib
We'll be willing to come back to DCL for that date only if the itinerary's a killer.

They also said the same goes for when you book onboard and then change a dummy date cruise??? Is that true? I thought if you booked a dummy cruise onboard then changed it u still kept the 10 percent down???
We have always maintained the discount and the reduced deposit when moving our OBB.
