If you use a TA, then the booking agents can't touch your reservation. You may be able to have both bookings, and then your TA could cancel the first and change your rooms to the connecting? I haven't had to do that yet, so I'm not sure about that part.

I also think that if the Wonder did 3 or 4 or 5 day cruises out of LA it would be very successful as a tie in to Disneyland the way they have done for WDW.

Anyway, like everyone else, still waiting.

I too wish they would do something in the Pacific other than Mexican Riviera. The problem with a 3 or 4 day out of LA is that it takes so long to get anywhere. Now if they would do a LA to Orlando and an Orlando to LA every now and again it would spice up choices. Have not done that itinerary since the last onces have always been right when the DD is headed back to school after a break, won't miss the next one.

Exactly! You could double-book and have them add your TA to the new booking. Then once home, he/she could move the original cabin to the new ressie. That is easy for a TA to do.

I emailed this suggestion to DCL a while back. Why not just toss in a few PC crossings each year and at least 1 during the summer. We'd love that!!!

I have put that on our last 3 evaluation forms, maybe if enough suggest Canal crossings as a regular option we might see a couple a year.

I would definitely be onboard for another Panama Canal Crossing. Would love to go West this time!

Watching Amazing Race this past Sunday and they did a segment in Panama City. Wish they would stop there! That would be awesome -- there's so much history there.

Anyone think that the longer trips (PC) might be offered in the summer?

I am still holding out hope for a TA and Eastern Med....

Not so sure about it though with the Bermuda rumors and such.

I tried to do some research on this once. During the summer, the canal gets a lot of cargo traffic, which is why the cruise ships don't go there during summer months. I have been wishing for YEARS that DCL would do a June trip through there!

Oh well. We did a 14 day PC cruise once and it was during our Christmas break.

I have been on all 3 of DCL's Westbound transits of the Canal. Even this last one in Jan it was very hot and humid. I cringe at what it must be like at the end of July weather wise.

All of them?? I am so so so jealous! I would love to do one of these. The 15 nights is what is most appealing to me. The Canal is just a bonus. The longer cruises are so wonderful!

I can't imagine doing a long trip during the school year. That's why I keep hoping they occur during the summer.

Yup. All 3. As a matter of fact our first cruise with DCL was the Magics Westbound in '05. Since we don't have kids time of year is not an issue for us. That's why we are on the first Hawaii cruise in April. I will say that the canals humidity was almost unbearable in May. I hate to think what the return folks experienced.
