We too are on the B2B. I find it very fascinating that the Repo cruise to Vancouver spends the night in SF. So, our kids [who will not be on the cruise] will be meeting us in SF. We live in the Napa Valley -- 45 miles to the north. So, if any of you need any info regarding attractions or restaurants in the area, let me know.

We will be in room 6616 and are so excited. Just one question -- do we remove our luggage, etc. between the cruises?

We are so excited about this cruise.

You need not pack if you are in the same cabin for both legs of a B2B.

Fish Extender Exchange

So is anyone gonna wanna organize a Fish Extender Exchange for this cruise or do you think that it might be hard to do with all the new luggage charges and restrictions?
We just did a FE on the Magic and got everything from the West Coast to FL and back OK. The locals might bring some bigger stuff. The rest will keep it small and light.

DVC Points??

Can those of you who booked on DVC points please share what category, how many adults/kids and how many points. I'd love to plan a little before 5 AM Monday

Hey there!
Just dropping by to say we plan on doing the repo and first Alaska cruise as well. It will be our first B2B- as well as our first cruise on the Wonder- and I sure hope we get the same rooms for both cruises because I do NOT want to have to pack up TWO rooms of stuff between cruises. That's all I'm saying.

This cruise combo is the only one that will work for us- can't do it on the way back since I've been told there won't be Alaska then repo but with drydock in between! So definitely gotta do this repo and Alaska...

We're up for FE exchange if others are.

what is the DRAW on the repo some one tell me as i am out of touch what is it a week or so ? Stops ?
I don't know about everyone else but there are 2 major factors that are the draw for us on the repo:
1) we would much prefer to spend some time at DL before the cruise instead of just flying to Vancouver, cruise, then fly home. We usually prefer to add on a trip to WDW or DL (depending on where the ship is!) before our cruise and
2) we prefer the longer cruises.
Which kinda bit us in the butt... considering we will have 49 nights (in 2 rooms every time, mind you) before we'll qualify for gold CC member! (we'll qualify for gold on THIS cruise... the Alaska cruise after the repo)
We just prefer the longer cruises when possible... it comes out cheaper than paying airfare for 2 shorter cruises and even the longer 15nt cruise didn't seem long enough. LOL So it's a no-brainer for us... Alaska 7nt just wouldn't be enough and wouldn't have DL tacked on the vacation.

Just now reading the thread and how cool so many will be doing B2B! We'll have a little "group" who aren't really getting off the ship (atleast not for long) LOL
Is this anyone else's first cruise on Wonder?

it's my first time on the Wonder, but will be my 5th or 6th DCL cruise. Planning on the EBTA 4/10 on the Magic

My DD is really looking forward to seeing Ariel in the Lobby

Oh.. too bad not the WBTA- because we're on that one too LOL
It will be our first time on Wonder- and should be our 5th and 6th cruise (repo our 5th- this Alaska 7nt our 6th)- so we're in the same boat as you I guess! hehe
Atleast it will be something (slightly) different for us. I don't think we'll be cruising the new ship unless it does longer cruises.. we're not up for going to Fl just for a short cruise. LOL

I feel the same way. We're hoping for a longer cruise on the Dream than just a 3 or 4 night.

This will only be our 2nd time on the Wonder. We did the 11 night Southern Caribbean in 2006. Just had to get used to some name changes.

I'm in for fish extenders if everyone else is!!!

HEY!! I was going to post the same thing before I saw you did it!! Jason and I are thrilled to see Ken and Shari aboard this cruise (and the B2B??), as well. And "if" Ken is doing lanyards, Jason and I want in on the lanyard team, too. (Since Ken inspired us with lanyards on the first TA in May 2007, I've done several cruises and I've ended up being "the lanyard guy"...but that is a hat that I am SO willing not to wear on this trip!! )
