Wonder's Panama Canal Repo 2011 - AND WE'RE NOT BRINGING IT BACK!

Okay, I know I know. It's a little early but I'm excited. We missed out on the last one as we hadn't even thought about cruising when those cruises were announced. But we definitely want to be on the Wonder when it heads out to LA.

So who's in with us?

It's going to be DH, me, DD (11 at the time of sailing) and my parents. I told my mom I really wanted them on the boat and that I would pay if they couldn't afford it. So I asked her to start thinking about the type of stateroom she needed. Her response "Honey if you're paying I need a verandah!" Gotta love mom!!!

Depending on what time of the year it sails, we'll be on it! My husband and I went on it last year and it was awesome. My DD graduates in 2011 so if it sails in the summer we'll be there, but I am hearing it maybe anywhere from Jan-Apr that it will sail.

I would definitely book into that cruise! We did the Repo in 2005 from LA to Orlando. LOVED that trip -- and REALLY loved Disneyland. That would be awesome to be on the ship when they permanently move her to LA. Fingers crossed that the dates are after my daughter's college classes end .

Oh, but we also want to be on the "inaugural" sailings of the new ship that year. Ahhh, too many choices and not enough time or money

Count me in as someone who would love to be on a PC cruise! My MIL is from Panama, and my DH was born in the Panama Canal Zone, so we've been wanting to do a cruise through there, but have missed out on the other PC cruises to date.

And am I right that this would be the Wonder's first trip through the canal? So it a way it's doing something new that hasn't been done before!

That is right, it will be her first trip through the PC. I would like to take at least one cruise on the Wonder and a 14/15 day would be long enough to make that worth our while.

This may be the cruise meet thread. Sorry, I didn't check first. I'm just too excited.

As long as the cruise doesn't fall during dance recital time in June then we'll be trying our hardest to get on!!
