Honestly, the OBC was a no-brainer for us. We'll be able to do quite a bit with our's! Every little bit helps!

Yep, we use her as well. Haven't seen more OBC anywhere else, that I know about at least.

So for fun I went to www.cruisecompete.com. We got a quote back from www.cruisevacationoutlet.com that has a very generous OBC offer. From looking at the DU site, this offer is more then twice what we would get from DU. So it makes me kind of tempted. Has anyone used them or heard anything about them?

Thanks!
We have used them before - Dawn Moseley was our agent - she is wonderful! I just talked with her this morning about booking on board when we cruise in 2 weeks. She was very helpful. They honored the OBC when we used them before. FYI - she also does WDW packages and ABD. She informed me she is a prior Disney employee in the reservations dept. and also in administration. She knows her stuff!

Here's a question for you all: We have a cruise booked thru DU already but want a new date/cruise. Out of curiosity, I checked out cruisevacationoutlet.com and got a great OBC offer. Now, here is our issue: Since our ressie with DU is for a concierge level room, we can not just cancel it, cut ties with DU and start again with someone else. However, we can move our ressie do a different date without penalty. Is there a way to do that and take advantage of the great OBC offer from cruisevacationoutlet?

AFAIK, no. Since you are concierge, your reservation # needs to stay the same in order to move your concierge deposit to a new date without losing it. If DU owns the reservation now, they would need to release the reservation back to DCL, and then you'd have to transfer it to the other agency. And then, if you are outside of the new 30 day rule, you can't transfer anyway.

I used cruise vacation outlet for a Panama Canal cruise on Holland America last year. they were great. Stateroom credit and a fruit basket and bottle of champagne in our cabin when we arrived. I thought that was nice.

I really planned on using DU, but at least it looks like I have other good options, especially with such nice OBCs.

On a side note - with DU when they say 2 days, does that mean week days? I guess I originally assumed they worked weekends also, perhaps I was mistaken there, in which case I should wait until next week - except we go back to that whole excited to book thing that makes it hard to wait!

Thanks all!

Um, I got a quote on Christmas morning! It's usually less than two days, but they give themselves that.
