    Hello again Nancy! We are all ready to set sail on Dream in Jan 2014! But just so I know for the next time we book a disney cruise, when is the ship most likely to NOT fill up? What months have the smallest # of people/rooms booked when we leave port?

    Hi Brandie!
    You won't believe how fast the next year will fly by as you count down for your cruise vacation!  I enjoy  the planning process almost as much as the cruise itself so you have a lot to look forward to in the coming months! My number one cruise tip is to book another cruise while you are onboard the ship.  There are several reasons this is always a good idea.  You get to take advantage of a reduced deposit, 10% discount off your cruise fare and a shipboard credit for your future sailing.  Most importantly, disembarking the ship will be a little easier since you will be looking forward to another cruise vacation! 
    I'm sure you will observe on your Disney Dream sailing that Disney Cruise Line offers so many wonderful activities and amenities that the ship never seems too crowded.  There is so much to do, see, and experience you will be amazed at how smoothly the crews takes care of their Guests!  Of course the peak times to sail are the summer months, spring break (March-April), Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. January, February, and September are the months you might see a less crowded ship because most kids are in school, and these months are right after the busiest times of the year. 
    If you think you will rebook onboard, I do suggest having a date, ship, and itinerary in mind before you set sail in January and your visit to the Future Cruise Sales Desk will be quick and easy!
    I hope my answer is helpful, Brandie!  I'm really excited that you are looking forward to a magical journey on the high seas with Mickey!  Please keep me posted on your plans!
