    Hi i have book for nov23 & have a 4 berth cabin but only for my 2 girls 18 & 14 and myself. my 14 yo has anxiety that she will be by herself so i want to add another child to my booking. why is the only way to do this is to pay to a balcony cabin

    Ahoy there, Lynn, and welcome aboard planDisney!

    It's been such a joy to see so many of our friends in the Southern Hemisphere getting excited about the Magic at Sea Itineraries...you know, on the Disney Wonder. It doesn't make complete sense to me either, but the long and the short of it is you and your crew will be aboard the Disney Cruise Line vacation of your dreams in a little more than a year!

    As someone who first sailed on Disney Cruise Line when he was 15, I understand the nervous excitement of this experience! That said, I also remember how fun it was to be trusted to head to the youth clubs on my own - which all those years ago used to be called "Common Grounds" and was themed to a coffeehouse - probably thanks to the influence of a certain American TV sitcom...you know, the one with the group of acquaintances...if you know what I mean! These days, your 14-year-old will find her home at sea at Vibe, and it's an awesome hangout. 

    However, the more the merrier, and an exit buddy helps everyone when it comes to feeling more comfortable! In most cases, you are most welcome to add Guests to your stateroom, pending space allowances and availability of staterooms. Since you've already run into a few rough seas trying to make these changes within your current stateroom, I'd suggest contacting Disney Cruise Line where a crew member can assist you. Oh, and be sure to have your reservation number handy! There are a lot of variables that contribute to what changes can be made to your reservation such as your stateroom category, its maximum occupancy, and again, whether it has any restrictions that may apply to your specific reservation.

    If you booked through your local travel agent, please contact them for assistance!

    Now, remember, there may be modification fees associated with adding Guests, as well as the additional cost of their cruise fare, but usually, for sailings booked either through Disney Cruise Line or via a travel professional, the standard timeframe without any added costs is 45 days or more prior to the sail date. 

    ::checks calendar again::

    Yes, you're in the clear there! 

    I hope that helps you set a course to get your daughter the exit buddy she'll need to cruise the EAC in comfort as Crush and Squirt would say! Thank you so much for your question and if you have any others as you continue planning, please drop another message in a bottle my way here at planDisney! 

    Until then, may your anchor be tight and your compass true!
