Yes! And leave nothing on the West Coast!!

Unless they want to do the add on ducktail like the Magic. Then they won't be able to fit through the canal.

The plan was to do this next year but since the locks are behind schedule, DCL doesn't want to miss the chance of moving the Wonder thru it.

Also, the Magic could sail from Europe straight to NY in early Sept..

On our September cruise our server in Palo said that the Wonder would not be going to Alaska in 2915 and that she would be having a major overhaul including the same changes as the re imagined Magic....we'll see I guess

A number of ships that sail in Europe during the summer reposition to the east coast for Canada cruises in the fall. For the Magic to do that after a summer in Europe is more plausible to me than the Wonder leaving Alaska early to travel around to the east coast. However, I still think that if a ship does Canada cruises in the fall, it will also also sail from NY at least part of the summer.

The plan WAS to do the same changes to the Wonder, but then the work expanding the Panama Canal locks fell behind and should she have the work done next year as planned she would not fit. They also did schedule a last minute dry dock in January and cancel some cruises too, which would also be odd if she were to have a more extensive one in the same year. Since Alaska sells very well (and Disney has been having a heck of a time finding ports other than Florida & the med that also sell well) I'd be very surprised if they don't put it off as others have said.

I for one would love to do another west coast cruise.
I loved our Mexican Riviera cruise as well....we had 2 stops in Cabo (one of my favorite ports)...and the weather was perfect in April. I would definitely book another one if it was on the West Coast. I don't understand why they don't do 2 days in San Francisco and just make it a Roundtrip from Los Angeles...airfare from Vancouver just makes it not worth it for my family.

When 2015 comes out, it will most likely be Jan-May 2015, so it will be a bit longer before you'll get summer 2015....

For those of us waiting to plan, 2015 summer seems like it's closing in upon us

NCL and perhaps Carnival will probably be the first to post 2015 summer itineraries. However, other mass market cruise lines won't announce summer 2015 sailings to Alaska or Europe until late winter or early spring. DCL really isn't behind.
