    Glad to play with the signature designs, I am sure there will be many more options as we pull in more sailors.

    Do we want to do a roll call in the first post? If we do, since I started this part of the thread I will start it, and make it in simple format so the next starter can copy and paste.

    Paid our deposit today.

    All in.:banana:

    A good way to look at this for us is that about 1/3 of the cruise is now PAID.

    Half of ours is paid now since we had to pay the full $600 pp. I still had an OBB from the 2006 cruise when there was no 50% & if it wasn't in effect when you originally booked the OBB it can't be added later. Oh well. The final balance won't be so bad.

    We ended up in that same catch 22. I asked if we could do a "fresh" booking and only pay the 1/2 deposit and then cancel the other one . . . yeah, but then we lose the 10% OBB discount, and also the $200 OBC. Not worth it. Just pulled it out of savings to book.

    Like you said, the final balance won't be so bad, but DCL has my money for almost 2 years instead of me.

    Sounds like the DCL OBC might actually be bumped based on your CC level. I am waiting on confirmation from DU.

    If it would have made a difference in the long run we could have just booked a new ressie to get the 50% deposits and had PJ reshop it on her cruise but not worth it IMO either.

    Angie, your original OBB must have been made in 2008 when the 50% was active. Is it from the WBPC repo perhaps?

    The list in the CC tier thread is from a TA. :thumbsup2 I was told by the CM that as gold we get $275. He read the information from one of his information sheets that they got with their packet yesterday before the phone lines opened. Plat is $350.

    Morning everyone....or afternoon depending where you live.....:lmao: It is a hot day here today, 100 already:confused: and it is only 10:53 :eek: . The winds are blowing hot air and am on Horse rescue alert in case of fires in SD. They are already sprouting up in LA.

    Right about know It would feel good on the deck of the Wonder in Alaska. Dh and I are thinking maybe if the Dream does the 7 days in the Caribbean also in 2011(big if)....we will just do this cruise and that cruise :cool1: Hot than cold or cold than hot.... Coffee and umbrella drinks...:banana: ahhhhh life is good..... we are also thinking about doing the MR Christmas cruise....good lord we just cant make up our minds. In the perfect world we would just do all 3....:lmao:

    Has anyone here ever been to Alaska before or been to these ports????

    We are planning on staying in Vancouver for 304 days before the cruise to take in the sights. Anyone else???

    We have a nest full of robins on this cruise.

    I will update the roll call this evening.

    Angie you booked a brand new booking right? That would be why you paid only $300/person. The rest of us geeks transferred old onboard bookings, so we are locked into full deposits, but we get obc. $275 will cover tips and the whale watching or train tour I would love to take, hmmmm.

    No, she transferred a booking that had the 50% deposit on it that was made in 2008. Our bookings were done on the 2006 cruise probably and didn't have the 50% deposit so they have to stay that way. DCL is making this the most confusing booking opening EVER!!!
