The current price brackets are insane. An inside room for 4 is over double the rate I locked in when it went on sale. Same for porthole.

I would LOVE to sail out of New Orleans! I wonder what the itinerary would be -- maybe some NEW ports

Summer in Hawaii would cut into the Alaska season, which is very popular.

I still think they could do a Hawaii cruise before the Alaska season or after (maybe alternate before and after year to year?).

But that would still be during the school year in May and September. The post I was responding to specifically wanted summer.

Wouldn't it be awesome if they took 3 weeks out of the Alaska season (maybe in early summer when the weather often isn't great yet) and did 2 one way sailings from Vancouver to Hawaii and back? 10 or 11 days would give you 5 days for the islands and 5 or 6 days at sea and the one way would be legal if it started or ended in Vancouver. I know the Alaska cruises are a big money-maker for DCL and they won't likely change it, there are a few of us out there who aren't really that keen on Alaska and would like to go somewhere different in the summer without having to pay for a transatlantic flight.

I think that's a great idea. I believe the sailing would be wildly popular Oh one can dream!!!!!

They could even tie it in with Aulani.

I live near Seattle. I have seen a gazillion ads for Aulani over the last two years.

I have seen some ads for DCL for Dream ad Fantasy and their itineraries. Not once have I seen an ad for the Wonder Alaskan cruises.

If they had a one way from Vancouver to Hawaii with some time going around the islands, I would do that maybe a few days at Aulani, then fly home again.

It's actually cheaper for me to fly to Hawaii than to MCO.

Strange... I'm your neighbor in PDX and often find MCO to be a couple hundred cheaper than Hawaii for the two of us. I much prefer the nonstop to Hawaii than the gauntlet getting to MCO though!

They can easily do 2/3/4 night closed-loop cruises to Ensenada, Catalina, Santa Barbara, target advertising to Disneyland visitors and passholders, and offer CA resident rates. You know, the strategy they successfully used in Florida to launch the brand in the first place.

Add San Francisco and Astoria and they could be longer 7 night. Other cruise lines do it, and they don't have the Disneyland tie in. I'd be all over that, I'd love a Pacific Coast cruise.
