Also, do you have to book a cruise on the same ship that you are on?
I've done that too. Don't cancel it. Just bring the printout to the future cruise desk. They'll re-shop it for you and give you a new price. Keep in mind if you have a TA on that res, they won't touch it. Also the discount is taken off then-current pricing. So you would know by looking online right before you leave if the price has gone up for your category.

When the Dream first entered service we were booked for a March cruise. In mid-Feb, we moved a different dummy date to Sept on the Dream. Later, friends decided to join us for Sept. I planned to rebook their Sept cruise to get them the discount/OBC while we were on our March cruise. By the end of Feb, their cabin went up another $900! Unbelieveable for a 3 nt cruise during school & in peak hurricane season. I knew before we left for our March cruise that there was no point in trying to rebook for them.


ETA: You can book any other DCL ship while onboard.

Thanks for the info! I will be sure to bring a printout of our booked cruise with us, and I'll double check the prices before we leave. I'm not expecting that the price would go up too much, it'll still be about 14 months out...I can hope anyways!
