Unfortunately, no one has an exact date or even knows if the Magic will be sailing out of Florida next summer. (There's speculation it might sail out of CA to help celebrate Disneyland's 50th anniversary.)
So if I'm hoping real hard & the Magic does come out west, and I want to sail in the summer of 2005, should I book on board for any date for fall 2005 or winter 2005 (really won't matter, right?), and when they do release the itinerary for summer 2005, switch the booking then? And keep all the credits & discounts & what not? Is it that simple?
I tried to book onboard this past week for the summer of 2005. No problem doing the booking for another date, and switching once the dates open up. But Donna the onboard booking agent told me "most likely" I would not be able to carry over the discount or the onboard credit for those dates. The discount offers are "only" for the current Eastern and Western sailings, not for any potential special sailings during the summer. She also told me that the bookings will not open up until summer of 2004. Needless to say, I did not book onboard, why if it would save me nothing. They would just have my deposit longer.
Thank you, good to know. Already told my husband we'll be rebooking on board, and we haven't even gone on our very first one yet! Now, I'm not sure what to do! Oh well...I'll obsess over another thing regarding this cruise!
Your welcome. I would most certainly make a go of it. Please let me know if you are successful in getting a definate answer from Donna. I included a note with my comment card, and hope that someone will read it and not throw it away. I still don't think that it is fair to a repeat guest not to extend the discount offer especially when in the navigator it says "any" future booking. Good luck and let me know.
