It's something they could have and then if sales are slow remove later, I bet the Norwegian fjords will be in blackout.

Oh yes, I see, of course they will know so anyone trying to move an OBB can be told it is ineligible or not. On the ships I imagine they will still let you book, but will inform you it is ineligible for discount/credits, similar to when I booked a suite onboard. What I'm less clear on is if they will actually post/publish a list of cruises blacked out or if you find out when attempting to transfer an OBB or book onboard a specifc cruise. In any case I'm sure we'll know quickly from Disers transferring existing OBB's. Thanks everyone!

I agree -- it's very likely with new itineraries.

We made a booking on board last September before they made the changes about when the cruise had to be taken by.

Do the black out days apply to me or is it only on newer bookings?

You should see some 5-night double dips on the Dream in summer 2015, doubtful in May.

Just off the Fantasy today so I can re-join the convo

So impressed that you kept up your workout routine onboard (I read Scott's TR). I think I would enjoy my cruise more if I kept up the routine. I felt like a huge slug on our last trip - too much food and not enough exercise. We have one of those big balcony rooms booked in April 2015. Maybe I'll be able to motivate myself by then!

I would love to sail a Castaway Cay double dip on the Dream! I have an OBB I plan to use for summer 2015--not planning on going to the fjords. Hope the double-dips are not blacked out.

We love the Fantasy, though, so we'd be totally fine with an eastern/western Caribbean. It would be nice if we could get to Puerto Rico, too.

WAITING FOR THE 24th!!!!

It is like when WDW puts out the discounts for different times of the year. Not all dates and resorts are included. So I am sure this will be true on the ships as well. 4th of July, Norway, Christmas. Just to name a few ideas. I for one am figuring out how much I am willing to spend. Then when the rates and dates come out I have an idea what I can do. I am hoping for WBTA as my first choice second choice is a PC. I do have $1000 on a dummy cruise.

I also enjoyed reading Scott's TR. Sounds like you all had a blast. St. Maarten looked amazing. Your photos made me want to go there….like now.

This thread is sooooo interesting!

So, it sounds like it is best to book directly with DCL as early as possible on the opening day (or the day afterwards if not platinum, if I understand correctly…) to ensure the best rate. If we have an OBB dummy cruise, but Costco is the travel agent, we would have to go through Costco, right? But since they open at 10 and DCL opens at 8 (is that EST?) it might make sense to forgo the OBB 10% off discount (not applicable to concierge?) and just book directly with DCL to get a better fare in case the rate goes up by the time Costco opens? Does that sound right?! Could the price increase beat out the 10% discount? Thanks everyone!!!

As in the past, DCL is being very tight lipped about itineraries and prices. So your guess is as good anyone else's.

Price increases depend on various factors, such as new or old itinerary, cruise popularity, demand, "holds," and double bookings (people booking directly with DCL while having a TA book).

When bookings open, there will be real time booking reports on the DIS. People will post their call hold times, sail date, itinerary, category, number of guests, whether OBB discount is applied, transfers, insurance, and price paid.

Booking with Costco

We are looking for the 2015 dates to book for WBPC, and not sure who to book with. I see that some have mentioned booking through Costco as you get more cash back. Is this because you are using your Costco AMEX card? Even if you book your travel through someone else, you can still use your Costco AMEX card to pay for the trip and receive that cash back. Or is there something I'm missing here? Trying to figure out how to get the most for our money. Thanks in advance for the insight.

Wonder Navigator's Verandah or regular Verandah

We are looking at going on the 2015 WBPC and have never stayed in a Verandah room. Is there a thread anywhere on which of these types of rooms are the best to stay in? or even which room # is the best? Or can anyone on this thread offer their 2 cents on this subject? We are clueless and need help!
