That's because the Wonder is in Alaska for the summer months. That's the only time that cruises really can operate there. Whereas, cruising the pacific coast cruises can operate pretty much anytime (weather-wise).

And my friends picked our CCL Dream to go to Nassau, St Thomas & St Maarten! Wow! I'm pretty sure DCL goes there LIKE EVERY WEEK...

Come on DCL! Pick NOLA!!!

Btw Belize...pretty much a let down...
Even sailing from NOLA, it is the same places ships have gone to over and over for years. You would get NOLA, but then people would complain it is not family oriented. Maybe Belize thrown in, but basically Cozumel, Jamaica, Grand Cayman. Possibly Key West.

Skip Key West, throw in Roatan and I'm good.

summer southern Caribbean. We really like the longer cruises but can't miss that much school.

They could do southern Caribbean from Miami, it would be quicker to get there. It takes a long time for a cruise ship to sail out of New Orleans and go all the way down the Mississippi River into the Gulf. It is not like sailing right into open water. (I'm originally from NOLA and have done it before.)

Us too! We sailed on the Wonder three times while it was here. I'm still hoping they will try again with a big advertising push this time. And maybe try out some shorter cruises that people can combine with DLR to keep their vacation at a week. I would be all over a 3 or 4 night with Catalina and Ensenada ports (we just stayed on the ship in Ensenada and enjoyed the Adult pool for the day, LOL).

I think Catalina is cute, but can't really handle a cruise ship worth of people all at once.

Actually, quite a few cruise lines use Catalina as a port stop:

Ok, I think Catalina is cute, but I won't want to be there when a cruise ship lets loose its passengers

I do notice most of those ships only carry 2000 passengers.

True, it could be that Catalina sets a limit on the number of passengers. The Wonder is what, 2400? So that could be over (just a guess).

DCL could always try San Diego or Santa Barbara and Ensenada.

Please don't beg for Ensenada! Horrible port of call unless you left the city area.
