Oh yeah, I just finished re-reading this report. Had to get a Wonder fix.


Glad Fran is feeling so much better!

Just started reading this thread! Enjoying so far! We r on the B2B Wonder cruise in May with you!...I am adding to the reply because I can't believe that I've FINISHED this trip report in 3 hours! I loved reliving Wonder. I feel we've gotten to know you and Fran. When we went on Wonder, we went to Palo for brunch and dinner. When we went on Fantasy, we also had TWO brunches and one dinner. My DH and I have agreed that because the B2B is so short (2 night and 3 night) we will do two Palo brunches and skip the dinner. However, the chocolate soufflé at dinner is TOTALLY worth it! I loved reading about your shopping excursions and finding out what you purchased. I love shopping as well, but you sure beat me. BTW, do you know whether or not Ensenada has Diamonds International? I figured it doesn't. Your concierge stateroom was amazing and the verandah looked to die for. I have to admit that booking your next cruise while on board is sooooo exciting because you have something else to look forward to.

I can't believe you read the whole thing! I noticed your post yesterday, but forgot to come back and comment until now.

We haven't quite decided, but I'm leaning towards two Palo brunches and one dinner. However that might change since I have two more cruises between now and then.

That Concierge room was soooooo nice, but when we realized that we could go on twice as many cruises by sailing in a regular cabin, we decided to go with that. The only big difference was the size of the room, and that I could order my coffee delivery for the week on the first day.

We did a cruise on the Magic out of Galveston and I just put the room service tag on the door every night and had the same result with my coffee arriving every morning between 7AM and 7:30.

I'm surprised, there is no Diamonds International in Ensenada. We cruised there on Carnival about 15 years ago and did the winery tour. It was a lot of fun and informative.

I've decided that when we get to Ensenada, we probably will go to the port shops to get trinkets and cheap souvenirs that say Ensenada. We want to take advantage of being on Wonder.

I noticed that you're from long beach. We live in harbor city. I work at Torrance Memorial. My DH and I met at Long Beach State and he works at their Student Health Center. We always say that Disney is in our blood and we are also disneyland passholders along with our kids.

DCL had priced us out of another cruise so I reluctantly booked Royal Caribbean because they had kids sail free (western caribbean on freedom of the seas out of PC). When the new DCL itineraries came out with San Diego, we couldn't resist. NO airfare with young ones on a red eye?!?! I'll take it! Even though we are doing the B2B 2and 3 nights and the itinerary isn't so exciting, what matters to us is being back in DCL. I've been so happy beyond belief! Just wanted to share my excitement! By the way, how's Fran's arthritis?

I guess we're neighbors! We are AP holders as well. Fran's arthritis is pretty much under control because of new miracle drugs. She's been through them all, but the current one seems to be working. I'm much more excited about the B2B than I am for the other two cruises that I have before it. I think it's because our thread is so active and there seem to be a lot of nice DISers on there.

My next cruise they didn't even start a DIS thread and created a FB page with the FE over there.
