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
Congrats on your up comming adoption. Having been through the process twice I know what an exciting time this is for you and your family.

Welcome - a double dip sounds like fun.

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!
Welcome - hope you come with us.

They probably aren't offering the GTY option yet as these cruises just started. I would say that they low prices won't be seen for awhile on these cruises.

in your opinion what should I do? I am going on the boat tomorrow, should I just book it and get the onboard discount, or wait till later when GTY is offered. I just checked the 2012 reposition cruise, I am suprise cat 11b still the same price as the 2013 cruise. I wonder why.

Oh wow! How did this get to three pages without me noticing!? You guys are quick!

We moved our dummy date to this cruise on opening day. We were really, really (no, really!) hoping the Wonder would continue doing the Mexican Riviera for 2013. We had our heart set on a spring break cruise. We took the Vancouver to LA repo last fall (our first cruise ever!) and just loved it. We did decide 5 nights just wasn't enough so I was happy this one is 7 nights, especially with the two days in San Fran! We've never been there so quite excited about that. And it means we only need a one-way flight to LA as we can just bus home from Vancouver .

Our crew is myself & dh, and our two daughters - who will be 8 and 12 by the time we cruise Gasp! how can that be?! We booked a 5C on deck 6 but I'm mulling over bumping up to a 5B if we can get on deck 7. Just to be one flight closer to the pool and drink station for our morning hot chocolates (a highlight of our last cruise!). Oh, and the ice cream dispenser! I didn't find out about *that* until the last day of our cruise and I've been griping about it ever since ("Mom! just let it go...") although it probably saved me a good 10 pounds.

Sigh...it's going to be a long 16 months! At least it gives us lots of time to save.

Oh, and does anyone else have DCL telling them you're booked on a 5 night Western Caribbean when you log in? The details are all correct, but the header on my reservation page tells me I"m going to the Caribbean..which I don't have a problem with as long as Disney pays our airfares/hotel

It is moving fast! So how many of us are coming from the east coast? I am a little afraid of what air will cost.

I am not sure what to tell you. I would definitely book a cruise, if not this one, onboard to get the discount. If the price is the same, my guess is that the cruise is not selling well or it has been discounted. My guess is that although I love the itinerary, it is not one with wide appeal. However, there are no guarantees, prices can go up or down.

I just looked up ours on the DCL site and this is how it lists it:

7-Night Los Angeles to Vancouver Cruise on Disney Wonder - Itinerary B


LOL - ok I click on it and you are right the next page says:

I saw the 5night carribean title last week on the DCL site. Asked my TA about it and she said she had never seen that happen before. As long as the details are correct I'm not worried...yet
