    I googled for a site that listed ships in port. I can't remember the name put when I saw the Dream was in CC two days in a row I looked for that date on Disney's website.

    Go to dreams unlimited travel website, click on itineraries on the left and then click on Bahamas. Scroll Down and look at the itineraries.

    By the way I don't see any double dips scheduled at this point for 2015.

    I did not realize Dream did anything other than 3-nights and 4-nights.
    Thank you for all this information.

    The Disney Cruiseline Blog has a very handy page per ship to see all the itineraries at once.
    Surf to: http://disneycruiselineblog.com
    Than navigate: Ships --> <ships name> --> Itinerary
    You will find all the offered itineraries, followed by a complete calendar through 2015. With any questions about itineraries the answer is right there. The * at a date means it's not available for on board booking.
    Enjoy your cruise!

    Well, you can book it onboard you just don't get the usual OBC benefits of booking on board, right?

    It's usually to change the dates a little. This year it was done so the Dream wouldn't leave port on Christmas Morning. They do the same with Thanksgiving so they can have people really experience the holiday on board

    I figured it must be something along those lines after I read it here. Thanks for confirming.

    That is correct. So there is no point in holding back booking till you are onboard. Usually: the longer you wait, the higher the price will be.

    Excellent point! You do get the OBC credit though, so there's some benefit to booking onboard.

    Yes, but as the black-out dates are the most popular dates (hence the black-out) chances are that by the time you book on board the rate has risen more than you will receive in OBC. Therefore it's recommended strategy to book as soon as possible and reshop on board to find out if that will save you money.

    Edit: I just looked it up. Block-out dates receive the OBC and the reduced deposit on 7 night and longer cruises. They do not receive the 10% discount on cruise fare.
