...for booked excursions. We are set to sail on a 3nt Dream Cruise on March 31, 2011. Our intention is to book the Blue Lagoon Dolphin Swim for my DD and her BFF as well as Dolphin Observer excursions for both my DMom and myself. With the cost of the excursions totalling approx 480.00 US$, and as they are applied to your OB account right away, would they not charge our CCard immediately as our onboard account will have exceeded the 400.00 amount at which they usually 'run' your card (if I understnad what I've read on other threads correctly). Or do they wait til you are on board to do so? So confused... Our booking date for excursions is Jan 15th so I just want to make sure I have all my " i's dotted and t's crossed" I am sure I may be totally off base here. This is not the first time we have cruised but is the first time with DCL, so forgive me if this seems like a silly question. Thank you for any help you can provide.
