We are pretty much in the same boat... We are a family of 5 and booked on opening day, and all of us are in an 8B as well. There hasn't been anything that has popped up for our our Disney Dream (6/23) cruise with either a FL discount or a Mil Discount, and even if it did, I don't think it would be worth cancelling our reservation, paying the penalty and then rebooking at the lower rate. Sigh. DCL used to be a lot better about giving a military discount, and I don't love the way that they do it now.Oh well....
I booked the June 22 Fantasy on opening day
An 8B, with 5 of us
If I had decided to sweat it out until today I could have gotten the military rate, either:
Two connecting 9B rooms for $875 less
Two connecting 5B rooms for $42 less
Obviously we’re past PIF date.
This was the only week we could go, so I don’t regret not waiting it out. Cabins for 5 often sell out, and if a discount weren’t available, it would have been a LOT more to get 2 roooms otherwise.
I love our location (9th deck, all the way forward - we love being rocked to sleep at night). Locations with 5B or 9B would not have been as ideal. So there is a bright side.
