Wow, very surprising data, nearly all cruises are 100 percent full with industry average of 102 percent of capacity. That means cruises are overbooked, not sure how this works out, but I am thinking maybe 4 person rooms with 5 or 6 family members or more crew members sharing rooms. These were recent numbers despite the economy it appears cruising is recession resistant.
    Yes, I agree it does sound like that. They need a almost full ship to be able to sail I would think. I know friends are going this Feb. on different CL, they got a really good deal she said. So not sure if they are making the money to compensate.

    Dining related question...

    I have never cruised with relatives/friends staying in separate staterooms. I know DCL meals are usually with the same group of people (and server) in each restaurant. Would the friends/relatives I am cruising with be assigned to the same restaurant, same table, and same dining times?

    Hi Dusten, I would think if you ask your agent they may be able to put in a request. I've never cruised either. But, I have a good feeling about this one.....

    Strange coincidence...
    Carnival cruise lines just came out with a ship called Dream in September and a ship called Magic is coming in 2011. Disney has the Magic and Dream is coming out in 2011. Carnival Dream and Disney Dream will both be launching from Port Canaveral, FL so we could see both Dream ships at the same time. The Carnival Dream has a distinct design with a row of red life boats hanging out on the side just below the main deck level.

    I still like the Disney Dream much more. But that's just me! Now that I think about it I read something on this in the Time article a week or so ago!

    Hi Dusten,

    Your agent just needs to make sure that your cabins are linked and DCL should be able to keep your party together for dining.

    Re: Meeting up on The WDWRadio Disney Dream Cruise? Questions, Comments & Words of Wi

    Hi All!

    We have been getting quite a few questions regarding dining on the WDW Radio cruise so here are a couple of things going on with dining.

    If you didnt actually specify one over the other when you booked, we have been booking main dining as a default since its typically easier to change from Main to Late, than it is the other way around. This will continue until main sells out.

    Lou will be traveling with the family and has selected main dining as his preference, however about half the group has elected late instead so its likely I will host that seating along with some others who prefer the later time. ill confirm as we get closer.

    If you are currently booked with MEI & Mouse Fan Travel and want to change your dining assignment, just pop a note over to your vacation planner and they will be happy to make the change.

    Regardless of the dining time you prefer, if you have booked your reservation with MEI & Mouse Fan Travel, we will ensure you are seated with your cabinmates and are cross referenced to the rest of the WDW Radio group to sit together. When we get closer your Vacation Planner will contact you for specific requests for friends at the same table - and we will do our very best to accommodate.

    Because we are a group, please do not cross reference with bookings outside the group as DCL will drop those requests when we do the group assignment.

    If you are booked direct with DCL you can certainly transfer your booking to us and we will ensure you are part of the group for dining and other official activites. If you need some help to transfer your DCL booking, feel free to email me at: beci@mei-travel.com and we'll get you the transfer forms.

    Hope this helps, and if you have any oher questions.. dont hesitate to ask!

    Yes I totally agree. I love hearing you on Lou's podcast! You both are so much fun! The information you both pass on helped with our June trip! All of his guests are great! I feel like I know everyone already but not by face

    I gave Vicki's name to a few friends & hope they use her too! She is extremely nice & has wonderful knowledge.

    Well we spent the money and started the Passport process. CVS did an OK job on the photos---lighting is a problem at drug stores but the Post Office said they would work. They also said the cost would go up next month about $40.00 (they think that is the amount) Now to do more shopping for things to wear (does a girl need a reason to shop?) The trip is getting closer.
