Our family is taking the second sailing on May 10th. I will answer any questions when we get back that haven't already been answered.

None of us have been on a cruise with DCL. I'm researching like crazy.

If somebuddy has a chance to talk to the captain, puhleeze ask him a coupla questions about next years itineraries: (1) Is there any chance of staying more than three hrs in Victoria, and (2) When the Wonder sails to Hawaii will she sail past the erupting Kilauea volcano at night to see the lava glowing?

Above is another good blog to read for those of you who are eagerly wanting info. Erik and Jason are on the repo now and will be staying on for the first Alaskan cruise.
Ooo! Thanks for the link. I followed their blog for their Med cruise. I didn't know they were doing this B2B. How cool!

Subbing and Question

Are time port times listed on Disney cruise website correct? Is the ship really only in each port around 4 hours? That does not seem like much at all. Also, I see the excursions r very expensive. Is anyone venturing off on their own excursione?


Thanks all!

Are you referring to the 2011 or the 2012 cruises?

For the 2011 cruises, the port times I've got are:

Skagway: 7:15 AM to 7:30 PM
Juneau: 7:45 AM to 4:30 PM
Ketchikan: ??? to 7:30 PM

If you're talking about 2012, then yes, as far as we know, the port times are correct. Only a half day in Juneau and in Ketchikan, and Victoria is only 3 hours in the evening. Definitely not much. Skagway is the only full day you'd have on that cruise. The time changes seem to be to accommodate travel times from Seattle, to Victoria, etc.

I'm so jealous of everyone going on the Alaska cruise. I think this is my new plan for our honeymoon I've always wanted to go on an Alaskan cruise, and what better cruise line to go on...

I would love to know how much the CD is and if it's discounted at the beginning of the week.

Also what time did you arrive at the terminal, and what time did you start boarding?

Thanks!

Thanks all

I was talking about the time on the 2012 dates. That is very disappointing. That certainly does not seem to be enough time to spend for going such a long and expensive trip.
