Yes they normally post a price range from $ to $ per category.

This will give you an idea from the 2010 Baltics.

Yes, even a hold can affect the rate tier. DCL considers that a booked cabin. I know it sounds farfetched but many of us have literally watched the rates going up by the minute for new itineraries and specialty cruises.

Dates of ebta

Is the current thought that ebta will be from May 16 (or so) until May 29?

Wow! I had no idea a hold affected pricing since its not an actual booking. Good to know!

Does anyone know if we will know the OBB restrictions when they release the schedule? I'm thinking I'll just book myself, then when onboard at the end of May doing a OBB and list the TA for the OBC. Of course this won't work if the cruise I want is restricted.

You have 30 days to transfer a reservation to a travel agent. If that's what you intend to do to get more OBC, have a travel agent book the cruise for you when bookings open, then "reshop" the cruise when you are onboard in May. However, if you rebook onboard and the prices have increased, you will pay whatever price is in effect on that date.

I think they will have to advise blackout date with the 2015 release of summer cruises otherwise how would you know?

Thanks! I do realize its a gamble if prices rise more than 10% making the OBB not worth it. My struggle with having a TA book for me initially is I really don't know what to tell them to book. Until I can crunch some numbers I don't even know what stateroom category. But I'll ponder it a bit more, maybe I can come up with some guidelines they could use.

Thanks! Okay this next question is probably dumb because the obvious answer is "because I'm on the DIS" But, do you think they will actually publish the restricted dates, or the list is only available onboard, since it only applies to OBB?

That's a great question and I see what you're saying. We might not know the black out dates on 3/24 (ish) because that is an onboard benefit like you're saying. So for the folks (like me) who are booking with DCL, then re-shopping on board next month when I cruise, I potentially won't know if the cruise I've picked is a black out date - yikes. If that's the case - hopefully DCL will release on board immediately and a nice DIS-er will post ASAP.

I would think they'll have to have blackout dates available as soon as the booking dates become available. They'll have to inform you if you're loosing your discount. I don't know how they'd get away with it otherwise.

I think they will have to make it clear on the release if any cruises are in the blackout for OBB.

Agree. The blackouts are a new policy and as such we don't have a lot if experience to point to. But the most logical policy would be to list the blackout dates with the release.

Blackout dates are when DCL anticipates filling the ships easily so they don't allow returning cruisers to use a 10% discount they would normally receive for booking while onboard.
