New dates added to Galveston - "kids sail free"

Anyone have anymore information on which cruises will be offered. I have seen on a couple of website it says most sailings through 4/23. I'm looking at 3/15 or 4/12, both 4 nights. I thought this would be a good starter cruise to see how much we like DCL. We live about 45 minutes away from the port.

I seen that advertisement too.....but when I looked on DCL website, the dates were the same. The latest KSF ended on March 1st. However, the advertisement states until April.

Good. I'm not just seeing things

Dreams posted on FB that it has been extended through 4/26, but they haven't stated which sailings are available.

I believe that the actual Kids Sail Free dates are not being announced/added until January 2, and it is also that day in which they can begin to be booked. Hold tight!

I'd call up and see if they can add it and refund the difference since you aren't to the penalty period yet.

I guess I will need to make sure I pay close attention. I will be in Phoenix for the Fiesta Bowl that day, but my penalty period starts Jan. 4. I have already paid in full.

I heard from a TA at dreams unlimited that they will not know the dates until 1/2. I'm really hoping my dates are included- I REALLY want to take this cruise.

The January 2 date you were told is accurate. It's from the email TAs received from DCL.

We may be able to talk cousins into joining us with KSF. The problem is they have 3 kids. It would be 2 adults & 3 kids. What would be the least expensive way for them to book?

If they book it as two inside rooms, only one kid will be free, correct? If they book a stateroom for 5, would all 3 kids be free?

We are booked on the 2/5 cruise and it went eligible for KSF after the PIF date. We were able to get a refund. So at least try!

Yes the cheapest way would be to book one room for 5 then all 3 children would sail for free. Thats a great deal!

Any chance Miami will be included in the KSF?

Thank you. But I just read the fine print. I don't think we are eligible because I booked the 2 bedroom suite for the 6 of us, thinking, at the time, that it would be the better way to go then to pay for 2 rooms. Rethinking that now. But it looks like that offer is excluded on the suites and if I switch to two regular rooms, only one kid would be free in each room because it says "two full paying adult fares per room". Is that right? I would also loose my deposit. I think. I have already paid the whole thing in full, so I could call them on Jan 2 but I think the answer is going to be no all the way around. Oh well. Should have waited until Jan to book!
