It’s no secret. My family loves Disney Cruise Line! We have sailed with them four times and have a fifth cruise already booked for 2018. Consequently, I’m often asked to give insight based on my experiences. The question most frequently asked is, “How can I get a discount on a Disney Cruise Line sailing?” This doesn’t surprise me, because folks are anxious to set sail on one of the premiere cruise lines in the industry. Sadly, my response is not one most people want to hear. You see, discounts for an initial booking with Disney Cruise Line are far and few between. It is such a sought after vacation, that Disney doesn’t really need to offer discounted rates because their ships are usually filled to capacity. They are filled to capacity with first timers and many, many veteran cruisers. Why such a large number of veteran cruisers, you ask? Because chances are, those veterans are taking advantage of a great deal DCL offers for repeat cruisers, the On Board Booking Offer.
The On Board Booking Offer is a great way to get a discounted rate on a future Disney Cruise Line sailing. The booking process itself is rather simple. While on the ship, visit the Disney Vacation Planning Center. A $250 deposit is required to reserve a “place holder” for a future cruise. This deposit secures a future sailing on DCL without the immediate need to decide on a specific date or room category. Guests reserving this offer must sail within 24 months after the original booking was made on board and the $250 is completely refundable if plans change and you are unable to sail. The offer is really a no-brainer if you plan on sailing again in the next two years with Disney Cruise Line – and the perks are awesome!
Here are the perks of the On Board Booking Offer:
- 10% discount on prevailing rates on your next cruise (concierge-level excluded)
- Stateroom credit of $100 (3-6 nights) or $200 (7-night cruises or longer)
- Reduced Deposit on 7-night sailings or longer
**There are block out dates, as with any special offer. The Vacation Planning Center will have the most recent list for review.
If you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask. I’m here to help! Happy sailing!
