How close to sail date can I book?

You used to be able to walk up to the counter and book and leave on the same day. Can u still do that? If not, how many days before do you have to procure a cabin? Thanks!

You can't get into the terminal to reach the counter unless you are on the manifest. You can be added to the manifest up to the night before is the closest that I know of happening. That has to be done by calling DCL since you can't access the cruise online at that point.

Some say it's now week before since DCL needs to give the list of passengers for review and such.

You need to call DCL now.

I know pre 9/11 some cruiselines let you book same day but I have never known DCL to allow same day walk ups. I have heard (as Lisa mentioned) that you could call DCL the day before to book. Have heard that DCL has to submit a passenger manifest 3 days before the cruise but I guess names to could be added later.

The person I know who booked the night before the cruise had cruised on DCL before, so all of their information had been checked previously. I do not know if that factored into their ability to be able to book that close or not.
