    DCL offered $200 to rebook on another cruise (no guarantees we'd get same room on 10/6 cruise that we have on 10/3). We had the 9/29 as part of b2b. Now waiting on info from DVC.

    DH didn't mention if they would but price difference would only be $50. Our stateroom is not available on 10/6 so we would have to find another in that vicinity that is open for both cruises. Still waiting on DVC

    I don't care if it is .01. They made the problem they need to honor the price.

    Just got called. I could not do anything cause I am connected to a wedding party and the girl needs to talk to her manager who is gone. I don't get it.

    I don't get it either. You booked your cabin independent of the wedding. Are they now blocking them out thru DFTW?

    So I looked on the DVC website. the itinerary for this cruise now has 2 Castaway Cay stops. What did they replace?

    No I can't book through DFTW. In reality neither can my friend. She has to book her cruise first then DFTW takes care if the venue and such. They have zero to do with the rooms. Whatever. The girl, who was nice, said she will call tomorrow. All I know is they better have that accessible cabin for my mom. I have a hard time keeping my temper down when things get messed up by someone else. I must remember to remain calm.

    That's what I can't figure out now. I will just wait till tomorrow. The accessible room for my mom is still there so that's good. Like I said I will most likely be on a Cast rate in the long run so I will lose everything anyway.

    I would assume that replaced the stop at Nassau.

    That would be correct. No Nassau for DVC cruises.

    Ahh so it's a double dip!!

    Well hopefully you won't lose the onboard credit when you switch out. I didn't think you could get those rates for the new ships.

    They are easy on the Dream as the newness has worn off. Almost every cruise on the Dream has the CM rate these days. I will lose any incentive they offer, trusty me. That's cool. I just care about my friend and my moms room

    Got a voicemail from DCL today about and itinerary change today. Going to call in the am and find out the details. We're DVC so maybe we can just pay cash instead of points.

    I can't believe the person who called me needs to talk to a manager.
