KSF or Other promo on the Horizon?

So yesterday was the last day of the current"special offers" on DCl site.

Do we expect anything new to be posted like a KIds Sail Free or other? Is there any indication of which sailings are not doing well and are possibly target for a special offer?

We know that at WDW We can usually expect certain promos, say for example Free Dining in September. Is DCL similiar in the sense that certain special offers can be expected at certain times.... Is there any trend or history that is known?

Any thoughts are welcome!

Cheers!

Yesterday was also the last day of "my" savings (10% voucher from castaway club). I already booked last week due to some great tips I got on here with my rewards card!

It does seem like 7/31 was an all around "deadline" for certain sales across the board. Perhaps marketing is looking to see how much interest it generated moving into Q3/Q4 bookings....

General consensus is that *GTs, FL Res and Military will be offered more than KSF. Makes sense..for instance, NO ONE in any of our families have any children... But we did sail VGT this yr! So KSF locks out certain kinds of cruisers like us. They do better offering a reduced rate across the board as far as filling the ship goes... I think, anyway!

No there usually isn't a certain pattern but last year in Oct was when a kids sail free promo came out so hopefully it'll happen again!

Neversaynever- I know at least part of the KSF released last Oct. was for Feb. We sailed on KSF out of Galveston the week of President's Day. I think some of the Miami sailings also offered KSF.

You want to have pay for the meals onboard? Just so your child can sail "free"?

This goes over the KSF from early 2013. It was Jan - March and it might have extended to certain April sailings? I didn't read that far into it.
