Hi all! I am getting excited to see more people on the thread!

We have never done a Fish Extender but would be interested if we can get a group together.

Happy Birthday to you, too!

My kids are 9 and almost 7. I don't think I'm going to see them much during the cruise, they're so excited to do kids only activities!

Fish Extender Swap

We'd LOVE to do a fish extender! We have a 5 year old boy and two adults.

Re Florida resident rate

Just wanted to let you know that DCL came out with a Florida resident rate on
Our cruise yesterday. Our travel agent was able to change ours to a resident rate in a different cabin cat and saved us a lot of money!, check fast as they won't last long!

Thank you SO MUCH for the heads-up on the Florida resident rate! We just saved $800 AND got moved to a bigger room mid-ship!

So glad you were able to get the discount!!

We went from a 4C to a 5B and saved about 1000. We went to a regular size balcony from a family size balcony.

What cabin category did they give you?

I've been packing all day as I work so much I can only do it on the weekend!

We leave June 1 for Disney and then to the cruise!!

Only a few more days!

We went from an 07A to an 05C. More mid ship and no obstructed balcony. My refund ended up being $897 for the three of us, so that will be rolled into an onboard booking for an adult only cruise in November. I'm excited, most of my packing and the packing for the little guy is done. Since this is his Birthday surprise, I've been hiding things away for him for about a month and a half now.

I don't see the FL resident rate online. Was it released only to the travel agents? My agent has been away for her other job this weekend, so I'm not sure she's seen this. Didn't want to hassle her over I if it's already gone.

Also, this is our first cruise. DH will be turning 35 on the day we debark in Port Canaveral. Our girls are 5 and 10.

Sorry to be a pest, but thèy let you switch cabins and apply the FL resident rate without penalty? Our agent stated she didn't think it would be possible this late in the game to switch.

I called DCL directly and asked if the Florida Resident rate was available and could be applied to our reservation. The person I spoke with on the phone was very pleasant and upgraded our room without me even asking.

Welcome!

Your travel agent probably has to change it for you but if they are still unavailable on Monday you can try to call yourself.

The rate is not showing up on the website. I received an email on Friday from all seasons travel that showed me the rate. My brother has a travel agency so I called him immediately and started harassing him. He got us a cabin in a category that was available and saved us tons of money. We did not receive any penalties or fees to change it!

We were very excited about it!

Good luck! I sure hope you can get the rate tomorrow.

I called DCL myself around 6:00 today to check on availability for our friends.
Cabins were still available then.

We got our cabin changed from a category 09B on Deck 2 to a 05A on Deck 10 and saved more than $700! Amazing!

Woohoo!!

That is awesome! And you will have a balcony! You will be spoiled!

This is the first time we were able to change our cabin at the last minute and get the Florida resident rate.
We are super excited to save the money!
I told my hubby, more money for another trip!
