June 1, 2015 Wonder to Alaska

Just moved our place holder cruise to this one!

It will be my & DS's fourth cruise, third for DH.

I have lived in south central Alaska for over 30 years and will finally get to see Southeast Alaska! There are no roads to Juneau or Ketchikan so air or sea is the only access. Skagway is accessible by road from Canada but have never made that trip.

Welcome to WONDERful Alaska everyone!

I can't think a better way to visit than via a Disney Cruise!

(Now if we could just get Disney to do a 14 day Alaska that came up to Kodiak and Seward or Whitter...)

We are joining you!!!!

This will be our 2nd cruise!! Our First was a 4 night dream! Quite a change, but our anniversary is on June 2nd, so I couldn't pass up the price or the opportunity, we also moved a place holder cruise to this one!

I am not on FB until Good Friday, but if you would like I can make a group there!!

I am a bit nervous to sail this older ship.. We loved the dream and I really think we are going to miss some of it!!

My husband and I will also be joining you! We've never been to Alaska, though it's always been on our bucket list! Depending on what we decide to do over the winter, this will either be our fourth or fifth Disney Cruise, all of which have been caribbean or Bahamas

Is it bad that I already started planning???

We've only sailed the Dream and Wonder, but we actually had a way better time on the Wonder! There is just a charm about the older ship, and it certainly doesn't feel old when you're on it! Don't get me wrong--we've done concierge twice on the Dream, so it's been magical, but we'd still pick the Wonder!

Hi Myself, my DH, and DS (currently 11) will be joining you. This will be my 5th cruise, 3rd for my boys, and will complete my grand slam.
DH only agree'd to another Disney cruise if it was to Alaska, so here we are! I'd prefer to be on a beach somewhere but if the only way we were cruisin' with the mouse was in Alaska, then Alaska it is.

smalltowngirl504, my DH is also concerned about trying an older ship. He's been on the Dream (CC Double Dip was his 1st cruise!) & the Fantasy and isn't sure he'll like the older smaller ship, but for Alaska he'll deal. I'm sure it'll be great.

Hi Everyone! I'm very excited to be joining you on this cruise!
Only my 4th DCL cruise - once on the Dream (when she still had that new ship smell) to the Bahamas in 2011, one repositioning cruise on the Wonder from Vancouver in 2012, ANOTHER repositioning cruise on the Wonder coming up in September of this year. Can't wait for Alaska!

We've booked as well! Our first trip to Alaska, but our 5th cruise. The Wonder was the first ship we cruised on so we are looking forward to seeing her again. Right now it's just me and hubby, but trying to talk our son, his girlfriend and her mother to join us. Can't wait. Someone asked if it was too early to start planning - NOPE! I already have a countdown timer. Only 61 weeks and 1 month to go. I'm going to start searching out some trip reports to start gathering tips and recommendations for excursions.

Evening all:

Joining you on this cruise. I just re-booked on Friday, had a dummy date for this one looking forward to going. Never been to Alaska...very excited.
This will be my first time on the Wonder, did the Magic 3 times and the Fantasy once. I have heard nothing but wonderful things about an Alaskan cruise so this should be fabulous. Just me and DH going...

Happy Monday

So has anyone been looking into excursions yet?

I know we have a "little time" left to do this, but I started looking and since my husband has back issues, I have to stick with the mild ones....so the train excursions look really good.

Will keep looking and see what else I can find....

Then comes all thoes packing issues....I have a hard enough time with packing for the caribbean...so this will be very interesting.....
