You don't cancel all of your December cruises, including the holiday ones that people had already booked, AND move the ship to an entirely different port if you are planning to come back. IIRC the contract was for two years which should have meant they sailed out of LA until the end of January.

Then again, perhaps you are right and that would be just another example of DCL's incredibly stupid brand management. Los Angeles should have been a slam dunk with the Passholder population and they failed to do any significant promotion or offer anything less than a 7-night during the school year to get people interested. The single 2-night cruise they offered when they first arrived sold out right away, but instead of using that information to get people on the ships they ignored it and then inexplicably used it in NYC. Sometimes I think they just have a dartboard covered in sticky notes that each have a random business decision on them.
