July 30,2012 - 7 Night Wonder Cruise to Alaska

Hello Everyone.

After watching for several months I decided to start the thread for our cruise date.

Going on the cruise will be my DH; Dakota (age 26) and myself; Leiana (age 30)

This will be our 3rd Disney Cruise but our first alone. Our other 2 cruises have both been with my family; with the first being our wedding onboard.
All 3 have been aboard the beautiful Disney Wonder.

I've been looking forward to this cruise for months now. We never get to go on a trip around my birthday (July 29) as its always too hot. It's really exciting to be able to go on a vacation in the middle of summer to a place that will be cooler than home. I know call me crazy

I'm a little worried about not knowing anyone on the cruise with us but I guess I have plenty of time to get over it.

So who else will be joining us on this WONDER-ful cruise?

We are just off of the Disney Magic in the Med and have rebooked for this cruise.

It will be our third cruise we are from England and have never travelled to the west coast US before so very excited

We've just booked this cruise also.

I've always fancied Alaska after travelling in Canada and cruising down the inside passage in the late 90s.

We had a great first cruise - Magic Med with Lindylou2_2002.

Welcome to the both of you. I'm so jealous I wanted to do the Med cruises as well but just couldn't afford it at the time.

I will be going along with my grandmother, aunt, uncle, parents, and sister.

We went on the Alaskan cruise from Vancouver last year. It was our first cruise and absolutely fabulous, the best vacation we have ever been on. We're all so excited to have the opportunity to go back!

Don't count on it being too cold! Last year we sat on the deck all day as we went through Tracy Arm. A few of us wore sweaters, but my sister and I had short sleeved shirts! When we went to port I don't recall bringing a coat either.

We have booked this cruise too. We were on the Wonder this last July to Alaska from Vancouver and loved it so much we wanted to do it again. Glad we got to see Vancouver, but more glad we are sailing from Seattle this time.

It will be myself, my wife, and our 12 yr old daughter. We will also have friends sailing with us with their daughter.

Can't wait to smell the fresh air in Alaska again!

Our family will be joining you all and are looking forward to this cruise, our fourth Disney cruise, especially since we had to cancel our booking for last year's Alaska cruise to a change in our school's calendar. Our party will include me, DW, DS (7) and DD (10). Anyone planning a fish extender gift exchange?

I just noticed the repeat Alaska cruisers. Any recommendations for excursions that you really enjoyed or heard good things about? Thanks.

Our first experience with FE's was on our last cruise to the MR. It was a lot of work but got some really interesting gifts. It was made easier since we didn't have to deal with luggage restrictions imposed by the airlines. I'm ready to do it again.

Welcome to all the newcomers!

So we're paid in full and I've already been looking at some of the excursions that are on the DCL site. Have some favourites saved to give to my travel agent.

Even got my time booked off at work and told my employees they can have any week off but that one.

I'm really excited now.

As for FE: this time my husband will not be participating. However if anyone here wants to organize one I'll link to it on the original post.
