Dreamin to Wonder

Our first cruise is this April on the Dream but I'm a believer and booked this cruise Thursday morn! Will be pulling the kidos out of school for it...What a fantastic way for them to see the Golden Gate Bridge for the first time! Hoping to fit in DL prior. Love the idea of flying out of Seattle home! Not only will it save big bucks but will be another cool city we can share with our children!

I don't remember since it was five years ago. The rate for the bus doesn't sound too bad.

Hey y'all. I'm booked on this cruise too. It will be my 3rd DCL cruise, 7th overall. My dad was stationed on Treasure Island in SF bay (I'm a Navy brat) so I'm really excited to be going back. Two days in SF will be awesome! Looking forward to meeting other Disers.

Rental

Hi all, thanks for the welcomes!
Priced out car on Avis for the same dates in 2012. About 120/day to pick up in Vancouver and drop off in Seattle. Def worth it for my family of 5. It will also give us a chance to do our own exploring post cruise.

Where are you picking up, Vancouver airport? I am thinking of doing the same thing, renting a car for a few days and then driving it down to SEATAC. We shall see, either way it is cheaper than flying out of Vancouver

Welcome to all our new friends! I have a a feeling we are going to have a quite a group on this trip, as this cruise is quite a bargain compared to Alaska but you still kinda get to see that area. I have added everyones names to the first post, feel free to give me any other info you want to share, as we get closer I might ask for names and genders for the FE. I have never done one before so I am open to any guidance anyone has.

So excited to meet everyone!

Hello everyone, we are planning to book this cruise this weekend when we are on board Magic for the Western Carribean cruise.

It will be our first cruise with our soon-to-be-adopted son, sister-in-law's 50th birthday and my close friend in LA decided to join us too, so we will have a big group.

Plus I have never been to Victoria or Vancouver, it sure will be an exciting trip.

Please let me know more about the return flight options. Cheaper the flight cost, the more $ we can spend on other things

Looking forward to meeting you and your family. I just wanted to let you know that I am handling the fish extender for the March 22, 2012 cruise that I am on. If you have any questions about the fish extender or you need any help...just ask!!!

Just wanted to drop in and say hi!

DH, DS5 and I are currently booked on this cruise ... it will be our third if we go, the first was the 2010 Southbound Wonder Repo, our second will be this December to check out Castaway Cay.

This cruise was a lot pricier than I was hoping for (had the southbound 6 night 2011 as an OBB dummy for $1700 for the three of us, and when moved the booking this one it was $2400 for the same category with first day pricing! One extra day for another 1.5 times the cost! Ouch!), and we usually like to vacation in the fall so we may or may not end up taking this cruise depending on what happens with the fall Wonder itineraries and our budget after the 2nd cruise. But if it ends up being the only Pacific Coast cruise next year and our finances are in order we may just join y'all!

If things work out the way we're hoping we will be living in our house about 40 minutes East of SF when this cruise takes place, but even though we lived in East Bay for about a decade prior to moving to Maui, we didn't get to be tourists there very often. DH & DS are both native Northern Californians and none of us has ever stepped foot on Alcatraz or been to the Disney Museum.

Its a great itinerary and I loved being on the ocean between SF & Vancouver last time since there were dolphin and whale sightings! Hope everybody has a great cruise!
