Smile Disney Wonder appears on Hawaii 2013 port schedule!!!

I know it doesn't mean much until DCL makes official announcements for the Disney Wonder schedule for 2013 but, the Wonder is now (as of 01/09/12) showing up on the Port of Hawaii cruise schedule for Maui.

Here is what is odd:

1. So far, the Wonder is only showing up for Maui
2. The dates in Maui are September 17,18,20,21 2013. Where is it on the 19th and why is it on the same island on consecutive days?

Below is a link to the schedule:

http://hawaii.gov/dot/harbors/file-l...cruise2013.pdf

I hope we don't have to wait much longer for DCL to release 2013 schedules.

Virdis you crack me up Eagle eye. Looks like you guys want a 2013 Hawaii. I am going to miss you guys on my MR next month.

If the Hawaii prices ever came down, I would love to do DCL. However, it looks like there is such demand for it I think the prices will remain high. Coming from the west coast it is cheaper to fly to an island and spend a whole week there in a condo then my family of 5 to afford a cruise.

It's going to be anticlimactic when they do because at the rate we're going, everyone will already know!!!

Sigh...Hawaii would be nice. But those dates are during the school year <sob>...

Congrats on your MR cruise next month. We really can't afford a Hawaii cruise either (especially with the nose bleed prices DCL has). Plus the kids would be in school.

What I am more eager to find out is if DCL will still have anything on the West Coast. There is no way we can do East Coast so if they leave the West Coast, its bye bye DCL for us. We would just eat the price of the dummy date we booked on last MR cruise.

Ann REALLY wants an Alaska cruise but its not in the cards this year. Hoping it will be in 2013. We are keeping our fingers crossed

Hmm....isn't that always the case??? I guess DCL doesn't pay the ports enough to keep it quiet.

Sept. is when many cruise lines do the repositioning from Alaska, so it would make sense that they are doing Alaska again too.

Princess, for example, often does Hawaii all winter & Alaska all summer, often round trip from LA, but sometimes it is just where they stop on the way back from Alaska.

Good job finding this!!

I don't know if I will be able to do the Hawaii cruise or not but I'm very happy to see that the Wonder will be in the Pacific.

This makes me happy too even though I was hoping for a PC cruise.

I don't know where she'll be on the 19th, but Hawaiian cruises quite frequently overnight in Maui. I think part of that is so folks can do early morning excursions. Kahului is not exactly close to where most of the excursions go from (Lahaina) and the best snorkeling, etc, is early morning.

Hmm...there's a thought...if they offer a Hawaii cruise departing from Seattle or Vancouver, might just have to pull the kiddos out of school. At least we could save the cost of airfare...

Sigh...Oh mighty DCL, please put me out of my misery and release the itineraries so that I will at least know if I have a snowball's hope of getting on a ship in 2013!

Maybe the Wonder will do two one-way cruises between Vancouver and Honolulu, and Sept. 20th is the turnaround day! However, I would think the ship would overnight in Honolulu.

I would be interested in a one-way Hawaii repo cruise, but a round-trip cruise with twice as many sea days as port days doesn't interest me.

I'm pretty sure the ship would depart from Vancouver, because it can't do one-way cruises between Seattle and Hawaii.
