Nothing on 2013 yet. But the 2012 came out when the new Itinarieres came out. It has been sold out for weeks with cabins popping up here and there.

As a general question, when do the 2013 itineraries come out?--for all cruises?

The 2012 Hawaii itinerary was released this spring. It's hard to say if there will be another in 2013 but I have a feeling that DCL will be doing another one (or more) in the future. There has been great demand for this cruise and it sold out very quickly even with the prices jumping up very quickly. I would imagine we'll see one or two in 2013. (There was some advance warning about the 2012 itinerary because someone spotted DCL on Honolulu's port schedule so that might be somewhere to keep an eye on.)

As far as when we might expect 2013 itineraries in general, that's also hard to predict. The last few years they have been releasing them in the fall. This past year, they released part of the itineraries in the fall then the rest this spring (with some other dates opening up in between without much fanfare). I'd imagine we'll hear something this fall (Oct/Nov). If it will be everything may depend on where DCL is planning on placing their ships in 2013.

keepin our ears to the ground

Stay tuned to the DIS boards -- the news of the Hawaii cruise was "leaked" here before it was officially announced through "normal" news media.

Last month we had a back to back on the Dream and a cast member of DCL told me that they are digging a deep well dock at the new vacation club property Aulani,so they may be moving one ship there to tour the islands and trying to get them to stay at Aulani.Just a leak dont know the truth to it,but would not make sense to go through expense to dig the deep well dock for a cruise ship if they werent going to sail their ship there.

A DCL ship could stay overnight at Aulani while on a cruise, but it couldn't do inter-island cruises based in Hawaii, as NCL does.

Agree. No way they will base a ship in Hawaii, just to difficult to get there and not alot of ports you can't already do via Hawaii Air Lines. I do think they would love to be able to dock at Aulani, they already offer a port adventure for 4 people to visit the waterpark and facilities for the day (for $440). Seems logical to just have their own port since they have all the transportation there and already have the excursions running from the hotel.

Speaking to a lot of CMs during the last Hawaiian cruise I was told that this will be the last year that Disney ships sail out of the port of Los Angeles. Supposedly they are losing a lot of money in LA because the cruises are not selling out so they are pulling out. For instance the passenger count for the Hawaiian cruise was 1921, almost 600 less then capacity. There is no Mexican Riviera on the itinerary for 2013.

While it's true that DCL won't regularly cruise the Mexican Riviera after this fall, the Wonder will sail from Los Angeles to begin some cruises in 2013, including the northbound repositioning cruise to Alaska in May, plus the starting point for the eastbound Panama Canal cruise at the end of the summer of 2013.

Sorry to say but the MR news is old news. Disney will still cruise out of LA but it looks like all of the cruises will be during off peak season.

While we were at Aulani, there were DVC sales guys talking to people around the pool saying that DVC was working on having a cruise that went back and forth to Aulani. He did not specifically say one of the Disney Cruise ships, just that they wanted a way for people to visit Aulani without having to fly. He seemed to imply that this would be more of a 'shuttle service' so people could take a ship/boat to get to Aulani, stay for awhile and then return home.

Not sure exactly how feasible this would be to go out of LA, but it is just what they were saying.
