Hawaii in the summer would be nice but I doubt it will happen. Seems like the stuff I want to do on the west coast always happens in the off season. They have done great summer trips out east but not out west. DCL will likely do Alaska again and, as someone has mentioned on the DIS before, they are not likely to take any weeks from what's perceived as lucrative Alaska sailings to do anything else. Bummer because sailing anywhere during the summer that requires a long airplane trip airfare is just so expensive that it doesn't make sense to do it.

It looks like a sure bet it won't be Galveston.

The Baltic Cruise was awesome. DCL really went all out.

We looked into doing a Baltic cruise with DCL the last time they offered it, but it was so much more expensive than other cruiselines we just couldn't justify the $$$$. Had a great time cruising with the competition.

I know the Wonder is due for a major dry dock in 2014. Is there a specific deadline (month) that the work has to be done to comply with some regulation? Wish we knew which shipyard they'll be using and when.

I know that some have mentioned the Hawaii cruises not selling as quickly as first thought, but there are some (well me at least) who would love to go, but can only travel when the children are out of school in August
The first cruise was sold out for the most part within 48 hours.

They then announced a 2nd sailing and many jumped ship as it fit their schedule better.

I think it was harder for them to fill 2 ships.

If they were smart they would have just one cruise right when school get out(earlier out west?) and fill the ship with kids and that would make them huge profits!

Our schools (Phx area) get out the 3rd week in May. Rellies in Wash St. go to the end of June. All depends on the district.

Most of Oregon is out around the second week of June unless we have too many snow days, but the private schools and those not on semesters get out in late May.

We are in So. Cal and our school district gets out the third week in June.

I am really hoping they decide to bring a ship back here. I would book another Mexican Riviera in a heartbeat (loved that cruise).

But if they are going to do it, they need to advertise it. I could not believe that the ship was here for two years (almost) and I only saw one advertisement. I was amazed at how many friends and coworkers were surprised when I told them I was going on a Disney cruise out of LA. They had no idea the ship was here. There was never a single sign or advertisement for it at Disneyland even.

If they are wondering why they couldn't fill a ship here, they need to look at their own marketing department because someone really dropped the ball there.

I'd travel for more cruises out of the west coast. Hawaii would be great. Kids get out third week of June.... wow! That's not affording them much of a summer vacation!

I'm assuming the kids who get out of school in June go back after Labor Day. Our kids go back the 2nd week of August.

Exactly. We go back the Thursday after Labor Day

Considering that most of June and about 1/2 of July can be taken over by June Gloom (weather), I hope they don't change it. Our best summer weather is in August so I would not want to have the kids going back to school then.

My son gets out mid June and goes back mid August. Summer is only 2 mos here but winter break is almost a month.
