Baja Mexico Cruise 2015

Im wondering if anyone has a room booked for the Oct. 11 cruise to Mexico for a family of 4 or 5 that may be giving up their room because you are booked on the 4th or 18th as well. We have some friends that are dying to come with us but it seems the cruise is already sold out?!

Keep checking constantly but especially after 9:00pm West Coast time. I think the holds release at midnight Florida time, so anyone who was holding a room but didn't pay the deposit by the due date, the hold comes off automatically and the rooms are released. This is how my sister was able to grab a room for 5. Good luck!

Thanks. We've been doing that as well. Just figured I would try this route as well!

Yep. Check daily or more, if you can. People cancel/move their cruises for all sorts of reasons - just have to be in the right place at the right time to grab a room when it opens up.

It sounds like, based on your post, splitting the group into two rooms is not your preferred option... but for anyone else that may be reading.... the Baja cruises are not sold out. There are just no rooms currently available for a group of 4 or more on any of the 5-night sailings.

Are you looking for a specific room? There's a website that I use that shows that there's availability in 50% of the categories onboard for that cruise.

And when I try doing a booking directly on the DCL website, it's allowing me to select categories. As well as rooms.

I'm just going to the website and searching for a room. I can get a room for 1 adult and 2 kids but what I need is 2 adults 2 kids that isn't way overpriced. Or 3 adults 2 kids.....

Connecting rooms would be ok as well.....

It looks like those cruises are closed for quad occupancy, your best bet is to do 1 adult, 2 kids in one room and 2 adults in the other and keep checking for quad occupancy.

Do you know if they book 1 adult 2 kids...could they add another adult later? The 3rd adult is still up in the air at this point but we for sure need to find a room for 4 and you guys have given me some great suggestions so far......
