I don't think anyone actually wants to go to Ensenda, it's just that US law requires a foreign port stop and it's the only port that works for a 3-4 day itinerary. I'd love to see Catalina Island, and San Diego would be a great stop too. The stop in Mexico would just be a throw-away. I'd just treat it like a day at sea.

Chachobban (sp?) ruins in Costs Maya were great. We saw tours that we could have done if we had a longer day in port. Ours was loisted as leaving at 4-5 pm or so, but ended up being the crews reward day and we were in port until 1 am.

Had we known in advance we could have done the ruins we really wanted to see, but with a lot of driving, daylight issues etc.

So I want a port where we can go to those ports they did on some earlier Panama Canals- disappointed with the lack of ports on those. Not enough for the cost of the cruise.

Exactly! When we did the Pacific Coast cruise, we really enjoyed San Francisco and San Diego. Then we just stayed on the ship in Ensenada and enjoyed the pool

As much as I'd like to see some west coast local short cruises it seems it won't happen again, huh? I need to just let that dream die, right?

I'm holding out hope that since the 2 day cruise to nowhere sold so well (at least based on the sky high prices) that they'll expand it a bit next year. Maybe (assuming they go to Alaska in 2015) they'll take a week between the Panama Canal cruise and the repo cruise to Vancouver and offer a couple short cruises from LA, even if just to test the waters.

Hoping for dates out of New Orleans, 56 miles from front door.
I have read that New Orleans is wanting to build more terminals so they can get Disney in there. They have at least talked to Disney about bringing a ship there, but as far as I know, it was a long ways off. From what i understood in the article, it will take them building the new terminal first.

I wonder how long that will take?

I'm bummed enough about DCL saying good-bye to Galveston. I was hoping NOLA wouldn't be too far off.

Construction for the new terminal won't be until end of this year. The article says it wouldn't be complete until end of 2014 early 2015... So I guess it is possible for a 2015 NOLA disney cruise. I haven't seen an update on this article since it came out in February. The article also said a bunch of other ports are trying to get Disney to come there. No big surprise there.

I would love to see a Panama Canal cruise with a two day canal experience. I would also do another west coast cruise in a heartbeat - awesome trip!

My TA just updated her facebook page with an article about DCL's connection to new construction of a pier park area in Tortola. Seems like a strong possibility that DCL will be stopping there in the future. The article is available at http://disneycruiselineblog.com/2013...pment-project/

3 cruises and I can honestly say, our favorite was the Mexican Riviera. I loved the California weather in February, loved how easy it was to get back and forth from the airport, loved our hotel.....all opposite of how we felt about the 8 night out of Galveston. I for one would love to do another west coast cruise.

I can't lie, I've not read the entire thread so I hope this has not already been asked and answered...

Based on past performance, when has Disney typically released the future sail dates/itineraries? Will we see 2015 dates only when 2013 is over? On the "Find a Cruise" page, it seems like there is room for 2015 dates.

There is no "typical" when DCL releases their itineraries. The most recent speculation is that the Dream & Fantasy itineraries (since they most likely won't change much) will be released late this year (maybe Nov/Dec). And the Magic & Wonder (at least for the early part of 2015) not until early next year (maybe around Jan/Feb).
