Hey everyone, we just got back from our cruise last night. We booked 3 rooms on board as planned, it was a great way to cure the post cruising blue!! Anyway I booked a 11B for myself, my partner and our yet to adopt son; another 11B for bro in law, his wife and their daughter; and also a 10C for my good friend and his partner.
People at the excursion desk said there will be no excursion for ports we will be visiting on our repostioning cruise, I don't understand why, does anyone has any info on this?
Also, can we charter a bus or something if we have enough people intersted in flying back home after the cruise from Seattle??

I think you were given incorrect information, it's probably a case of the excursion are listed yet.

I looked at excursions online (probably for the 2012). I did see excursions for these ports though.

I agree with the others that I think you were given bad information about the excursions. I know they had some on last years cruise because I had friends who were on it (though they mostly did their own excursions) plus I saw the ones listed for the 2012 sailing. I'm pretty sure we'll have some to choose from.

Yeah I thought it is weird, but they called my stateroom the next day after they contacted their counterpart on Wonder, and confirm there will be no excursion offered. oh anyway we have over a year to figure that out.

As we get closer to sail, I would be happy to get in touch with quick coach and get a quote on chartering a bus back to Seattle. I am sure we would get a break on price, and I read if EVERYONE on board has just come off the ship, you do not have to stop for customs at the US border, saving time.

My family would be five on the bus, plus eight of you TLPL? That is 12 already, I bet if we get to thirty we can work someting out.

We are also planning on driving from Vancouver to Seattle to fly home, so I'd appreciate any advice there.

Not sure if I want to do the FE yet... seems a bit overwhelming.

We have cruised before, but not on Disney. We have been to WDW quite a bit, though, when I worked at the Disney Store in the 90's.

We are looking forward to it. It's nice to "meet" you all.

Welcome aboard! We are going to have a quite a group onboard for this trip!

We would be interested in the quick coach to Seattle too. We are a family of 5 (but one under 5, so non paying) and maybe my in laws if they don't fly out of Vancouver... so 4 for sure and maybe 6 more.

From the Quick Shuttle website:

To add to your traveling pleasure, each of our deluxe coaches boasts 47 seats with plenty of legroom, immaculate washrooms, ample luggage storage, and air conditioning and video equipment.

If we find 47 people from our cruise, we can charter our own bus! I wonder how much it will cost.

The only problem with this plan is that everyone has their own preference. Some people wants to leave Vancouver right away, some want to stay behind to explore the city. We have to work that out.

Unfortunately, I have to jump off this boat. This date might fall during state testing and I am a teacher. Have fun!

With much sadness you have been tossed overboard.

Hopefully you can rejoin us later. This cruise will actually be my celebrating of getting my teaching credential, would love to have you with us!

Count us in as well!

Me, DH, DS (6 at sailing), and DS (4 at sailing).

Does anyone know any specifics or general ideas on themes of nights yet? Do they follow the same dining rotation as the magic/wonder use to in the Caribbean? I tried reading through the old thread and TRs and just didn't have any luck. Oh and the insane planner in me would love to see some old Navigators

We will be on this repositioning cruise with you and look forward to meeting new friends ! It will be myself,Gina and dh, Bruce. We will have early dining. Also, we will be on the 1st Alaskan cruise. We lived in Alaska several years ago and look forward to going back ! This will be our 14th Disney cruise. We usually have Grandchildren with us, but we're sailing alone this time.
