Just wondering if either of you has contacted Irish Cowboy so that our thread gets listed on the Wonder 2013 list.

We are currently booked on this cruise and I truly hope it happens. DH is really unsure about taking 2 weeks off of work, so we will see.

If we do get to go, it will be our 2nd full transit of the canal on DCL. We did a partial transit on Princess a number of years ago.

It will be me, Dh and Dd who will turn 11 on the cruise.

We did the EB in 2005 when DD was 2, almost 3, so she doesn't remember anything. She really wants to go and 14 days on the ship is AWESOME!

I am amazed more people haven't booked this cruise. Except for Cartegena, the ports aren't terribly interesting, but Cabo is gorgeous and the day through the canal is fasciniating. We just love all the sea days.
I remember back in '05, that you had to call as soon as the cruise was open or you weren't getting on. I guess things have changed.

Looks like 2 birthdays will be celebrated on board. I sure hope we get to go.

DCL has a special for the December 2012 PC cruise - inside cabin GTY for $985/person. Great deal! This tells me that the ship isn't filling up and this cruise has been available for booking for a while. I'm hoping deals are offered on our cruise. I remember the craziness in 2005 with people posting on the DIS about getting or not getting staterooms. Of course, 2005 was the first PC itinerary, so the excitement was there. Same thing happened with the May 2012 Hawaii cruise. My co-worker was on that cruise, booked the first day she could. Cruise was not full but the staterooms were booked as many were traveling solo or with just 2 adults in a stateroom.

Denine, I assume you were on the 2005 PC cruise. How crazy was it with the pins? I heard people were line up the night before the pins went on sale and sleeping on the floor.

Happy 4th to all!

Jan

We were on the 2nd PC cruise. Thankfully they had worked out a different system for the pins by then. It was a nightmare the first PC cruise.

It is a tough time of year for a 2-week cruise for families. School is just starting again and most people don't want to or can't take their kids out of school for that period of time. We home school, so that is not an issue for us. DH and I were wondering how many kids would be on the cruise. Our last PC cruise was in August, so kids weren't missing school, but then we had a little one, so I don't know how many older kids there were. But with so few families being able to cruise, it really decreases the base of people going on a DCL cruise.

I'm very excited about Columbia, and can't wait to see what shore excursions they offer. Plus the canal.....what a wonderful learning opportunity.
Would love to do that someday, but the airfare was outrageous!

We were supposed to go to Cartegena on one of our cruises, but it was canceled because it wasn't safe at the time. It is supposed to be really pretty and I was looking foward to going then. I hope we get to go this time. We missed Cabo on our 1st PC cruise because of a hurricane. We finally got to go last October when we did a MR cruise. It is gorgeous! We didn't see much of PV in October because we did a pirate cruise excursion which lasted for 6 hours! It was fun, but we would do something else next time.

Just moved to this cruise this morning from a ressie we had made when we left the Fantasy in May!!

Our original cruise was for Alaska, but the deal and the dates for this PC Repo were just too good to pass up. Plus it is on my bucket list of cruises I wanted to do! Hopefully I will get to do Alaska in 2014 (hope they keep up that itinerary)

Cruising will be me (Kathy), DH (Le) and DD (Kati) who will be celebrating her birthday while on the cruise.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone. This will be our fourth cruise, our third for the Wonder plus the one we just did on the Fantasy.

Welcome everyone!!!

I'm getting excited, even though it's still a looonngg way away. I've read a couple fun trip reports from previous PC cruises.

Denine, we homeschool too! I imagine there will be a fairly low kid's census onboard, expecially for older kids. That will actually be kind of nice.
