Welcome. We too were on that first Hawaiian cruise. It was awesome. This will be awesome as well.

It's already July, which seemed far into the future when we started this thread!

Glad to read new posts and welcome more people

I wish I was on the Wonder RIGHT NOW

Hi Everyone!

Just booked this fabulous cruise!!! I'll be traveling with my fiance, J.D. We got engaged onboard the Wonder last October and we're hoping to get married on the ship sometime during this cruise - or possibly at our first port, Key West. I think a beach wedding sounds fantastic!!!

We have 7 kids (7, 13, 13, 15, 15, 17 & 22) between the two of us, but they are not cruising with us this time around. We've discussed it heavily, but just can't pull them out of school so close to the end of the school year.

This will be my 6th cruise (3 Western Caribbean, 1 Eastern Caribbean, 1 Hawaii). I've always wanted to see the Panama Canal and these ports look really exciting!

So happy to be here and can't wait to start planning with you all!!!

We're currently tossing around the idea of taking them the week before we sail. They would then fly home the day we board the ship. I think this would be a fun way to include them in our Wedding celebration!

Cool! We have a bride and groom on board! I love weddings, can't wait to hear your plans!

Lots of people have asked me if there already is a new canal, or part of one. I don't know, but I say that people here mention that if the Wonder is refitted with things like the Aquadunk it wouldn't fit. So, my reply has been "no." Is that correct?

It would really come down to width. How much more does the AquaDunk add to to the width of the ship. There really wan't much wiggle room (maybe 6 feet) between the ship and canal sides. But the AquaDunk is at the top and there may be more room there depending on surrounding buildings. We know at least one building was moved further away after DCL took part of it out on the WBPC back in 2005..

The new lane of the canal is years behind schedule. What was already to be finished will now not be finished until at least 2015 maybe longer. DCL, according to a very close friend shoreside at Celebration, has told me the plans to add to the Wonder like the Magic are on hold until they get word from the Canal Authority that the new lane and locks are ready to go. The Magic isn't getting any wider, well except for the Aquadunk going over the side. The problem is the Magic is getting longer by 20 feet. That makes her to big to go through the canal. The same thing will happen to the Wonder.

Ok I have to ask this one. I have been through 6 times. All 4 times Westbound with DCL. The only thing I ever recall the ship hitting is the wall. All of the buildings look like they haven't been moved since the day they were put in. What building did the Magic hit?

Well maybe taking out a building was a little exaggerated but time will do that to a story..

Basically the ship's side bridge extension hit one of the middle buildings when entering the canal from the East Coast causing some damage to both ship and building. DCL had a nice bill for damages. We were able to see the damaged building on the way back that fall on the Eastbound cruise.

Tried to google for some pics and more info but unable to find any now..

Stories, sprinkled with Pixie Dust, grow In May, DH & I took video & sound of - what we thought - was a good bang into the wall. But Capt. P mentioned it happens all the time.

Good morning from hot sunny England. We are in the middle of a heatwave which is wonderful as we have had many lousy summers waiting for one. OK, the temperatures aren't as high as many of you get but we are very happy here. People are even grumbling about it being too hot!!!!!
