Deposit For Future Cruise

We are going on the Fantasy soon and we are going to book a Future Cruise with a Dummy Date so we can move it later on. What is the amount of deposit we will need for 2 people? Just trying to budget how much we will be spending.

Thanks

It depends which dates you are choosing for your future cruise. The advice I have been given is to pick a 3 day cruise during low season to keep your deposit low and then when you choose your actual cruise date, pay the difference in the deposit amount.

An onboard booking will require a 10% discount. How much that is will depend on the cost of the cruise you book. Suggest asking for a short cruise at low time to keep the initial cost down since you plan to move it anyway.

Enjoy your cruise!

We were just on the 1/28 Wonder out of Miami. I booked a 3 day Bahamian cruise on the Dream in April 2014. The deposit was $112.

Nice work on that.

What is considered "low season" for DCL?
