AHHH! So I lose the 10% discount booking that one if I change it to a suite when the prices come out.

I will have to talk to the people on the cruise so they can help me with everything. Forget booking my brother's room. I'm too confused to explain it to him

Taking our 1st Disney Cruise in 4 days!!

Already planning on booking a BB offer and have a couple different options in mind, depending on how we like the 4 night Bahamian Cruise. So let me make sure I am correct on this. If we book a BB offer, we only have to pay 10% upfront, we would get an additional 10% off the entire cost of the cruise, as well as $100 OBC?

If your cruise is a week or longer then the OBC is $200. We also name a travel agent when we book, and she gives us an additional OBC of $200.

Did you talk to a TA beforehand?

We'll either take a 3 or 4 night cruise, have to leave time for WDW, hehe.

Thank you both for responding, that's an awesome deal!!!

We've worked with the same TA in the past. She had booked the DCL cruise we were already on, so the rebooking desk already had her info when they pulled up our info in their computer. The rebooking agent just asked if we wanted to use the same TA, then forwarded the transaction/reservation # to her. We e-mailed our TA when we got home to make sure she had received the booking.

Funny story -- the most recent time we booked a "dummy cruise" we chose the shortest cruise/cheapest accommodations available and our TA wanted to know if that was correct because we usually book a larger room and a longer cruise. We told her it's just a place-holder cruise and we'll move the reservation/booking when the 2015 dates are released.

Sure, you say that now....
Our first DCL cruise was 7 nights and it nearly broke my heart to walk through MCO knowing we weren't going to WDW. That is, until we got on the ship.

Now we cruise as long as we can & a day or 2 of WDW pre cruise (or a long weekend) is good enough.

Our TA does this also.

Now that my kids are teens, we find that all 4 of us in 1 cabin is really tight and of course 1 toilet, 1 closet, 1 TV, etc. can sometimes be stressful. Now we get 2 cabins so $200 OBC per cabin from our TA helps offset the cost of our kids being charged adult rates. Really, it's not much more to put our kids across the hall in an inside cabin, compared to 3rd & 4th person rates in a verandah cabin.

They give you $200 for a 7 day?

Very true! I have always wanted to visit the USVI, hhhmmm, lol. We'll see how this all goes. Now, just thought of something, if we book a short cruise on board and decide we would rather do a longer cruise, can we change the cruise length?

Disney does, yes (when you rebook on board). The amount from your TA varies on price of your cruise rather than length.

That's why rebooking onboard is great; 10% off plus on board credit from DCL.

How far out can you keep pushing your OBB? We are cruising in April 2014 and would love to plan a European cruise 2016... Can I book just one person in a family verandah stateroom and then keep pushing it out until Europe 2016 is released? Then, at that point, add my other 4 family members?

The deposit is just 10% and there are usually onboard credits. The amount of the credit depends on the cruise.
