Hello all! We just booked this cruise while we were on board the Wonder for the amazing Panama Canal December 9-23. Looking forward to being back on the wonder. It will be me, DH, DS Logan who will be 5 and DS Emmett who will be 2.


Lindababe - looking forward to sailing with you again!

We booked this a couple of months ago, but just added the 9/2 Alaska to make this a B2B for us! We cannot WAIT! Only wish we could go from Alaska to Galveston and stay the month

I will have DW, DS(15) and DD(12) with me.

My mom and I booked this during last years repo cruise. We each have a room and will take my two nieces/granddaughter's. We were a bit sad that they changed it to only 5 nights this year.

We will also be staying about a week at a hotel near DL after the cruise.

We know a few people from last year's repo also booked again for this year, hopefully we will see you again.

Last year we were on the 2nd last Alaska cruise. We sailed out of Seattle and went on the outside of Vancouver Island. Those days were cold and windy. The previous year we sailed from Vancouver and went thruu the inside passage. We went around the same time of year; late August. The inside passage was a lot calmer and warmer.

We're spending a couple of days at DL after the cruise. While we're in the neighbourhood, eh?

Next thing I want to do is the Panama crossing.

The Panama crossing is well worth doing, Brenda.

I wonder what the likelihood of getting Grand Californian at the 7 month window is?

Flights are booked so we are staying a full week outside DL!

Fogot to mention it will be my niece's first cruise. I have taken them to WDW before and the oldest one has been to DL in 2007.

How many of you are doing the back to back. The 9/2 Alaska with the repo? That's what we are doing. Do you have to get off the boat for B2B cruises if you have the same room on both?

I did this cruise last year with my DH and boys. The weather had been exceptionally warm at that time in Vancouver so I expected the same on the cruise but unfortunately that wasn't the case. It was cold and windy and SanFran was much of the same. Thankfully Goofy's pool is some what sheltered so was easily enjoyable and of course the programming is so fantastic we barely even looked at the pool! LA was smoking hot though and hoping it'll be much of the same this year!

So excited!!!

I couldn't be more excited !!!! We just book our cruise... We had so much fun last year I knew I couldn't miss it this year. There have been so many offers for kids sail free from Disney lately that I was considering holding out to see what they have to offer at a later date but when a friend of mine said things were booking up I knew I just couldn't wait a min longer! This is only my second Disney cruise and I think i'm hooked. Travelling with my DH, and 2 DS... draging along my Mom and Dad too and might even have suckered in some friends to join too! I'm kinda happy with only the 1 day stop in SanFran but sad i'm missing out another night on the ship. We'll be spending a week in DL afterward and then sadly heading home to Vancouver to wait out the months till we book another trip.

Do you all have Fish extenders? Are they easy to make?

We did a B2B with the Caribbean cruises and they made us get off and go through customs and get back on, but very much by ourselves and after all of the other passengers got off. We were off the ship maybe 15 min. Then we had the ship to ourselves! There was only one other family doing the B2B then.

That was our experience too. You get a letter in your stateroom the night before telling you where to go and what to do.

No FE here. I like to give the stuff but packing it all to take home? NOt so much1

Oh shoot, I never even thought about packing the stuff home. I've never participated before. Aren't they usually small trinkets?
