I'd like to think that DCL will keep her returning to the west coast for Alaska, anyway, with a few Hawaii & Pacific Coastal cruises on either end of the summer season.

I would highly doubt they will do the pacific coastal cruises again (the ones going to to san fran and san diego) since they are not selling well at all this year.

I think they would pick up in popularity if they would continue them. I know I'd do one (unable to fit any of them in this year).

If they did one way coastal cruises sprinkled in, that might work, also
Like LA - Vancouver and reverse. Then people might do back to backs. Or a combination of LA - Vancouver - Hawaii.

I'm just wishing.

I am not sure if they could ever sell well...locals to LA and in driving distance don't really want to cruise in there own state...unless its cheap enough. Its not a warm tropical cruise and its not about scenary like Alaska.

One Ways would not sell well at all...since they would pretty much force everyone to fly one way at the minimum sine driving to port is not an option anymore.

I am going on the first cali cruise this year and the ship has lots of room still on it which is unusal for the first time a cruise does that itinerary.

My family is talking about an Alaskan cruise in the summer of 2014. Are the Alaskan cruises doing well? Does it seem likely that they will continue the Alaskan cruises?

All we really know right now is that they are returning in 2013 for the season in Alaska. I'm hoping they continue to do so.

I booked us on the June 24, 2013 cruise when opening day prices came out in January 2012 b/c I knew how important booking opening day prices was with the Fantasy when we did that in October 2010 for our June 2012 cruise. On that one, prices for our sailing and same cabin type practically doubled by the time we set sail....however, Disney offered a cash discount price to DVC members which got them on in a verandah cabin at about 1/2 the cost of our opening day price!!!

Anyways, so with this one, the price has not budged since opening day I thought Alaskan DCL cruises were popular, etc. Since booking it, I had to move it to the last week in July 2013 (better for work and sports schedules, etc), and prices still have not budged.

I am waiting for 2014 to be released to see if people might move their ressies to Alaska if DCL is not going back there then, or what......hoping they stay empty and Disney offers discounts, like KSF, or DVC cash prices!

I can always hope for summer 2015 as I already promised both kids we would be back on the big Mickey boat then

Me too. I REALLY want to book this for our Honeymoon in 2014. My other half is not a Disney person but is very fond of scenic trips. He's agreed that this would be a trip we could do as a compromise for both of us!

The only trouble is we can't affor to go next year if it turns out they won't be sailing to Alaska in 2014 as we're saving for the wedding

DISNEY - PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE return to Alaska in 2014!!!

We want to do a Pacific coast cruise...........and we live pretty close and lived for many years in WA.
I hope they bring it back for 2014.....that's the cruise we want to do in spring for DH's birthday......if they don't, we will go with another cruise line to do it

we know they'll be doing galvestone again - since they signed a 2 year contract. However, they switched western itineraries to eastern cause they were not selling.

rumor is NYC will be back...

The westerns were not switched for easterns. Select 8 night westerns where changed into 2 4 night westerns or 8 night bahamas cruises (castaway, port canaveral, key west)....

There are no eastern carribbean cruises from galveston

That's what I think too. Just hope they do longer cruises out of NY.

Fingers crossed that the Fantasy does the Eastern Carribbean run for Feb break! I don't like the itinerary for Feb break 2013

We were on the Magic in August and were told they are looking at various itineraries but there was a possibility of sailing out of NY in 2014. They also told us that 2014 dates may open in October but they weren't certain.
