Hawaiian Cruise?

It seems like I have seen one or two DCL Hawaiian cruises before. Does anyone know how often they do these, or does anyone know if they are planning another one in the future?

They have done two so far. Nothing has been announced through the end of 2014. Anything is possible, but DCL likes to drag out announcing things like that.

DCL has only had 2 Hawaiian cruises. The first was between the MR and Alaska seasons (Apr 2011). It sold fairly well. When DCL pulled out of Mexico at the end of the year, they added an Oct Hawaii cruise.

Some people jumped ship from Apr to Oct. So, neither ship was particularly full.

At this time DCL has no Hawaii itineraries on their schedules.

We can just keep hoping they do schedule another Hawaii cruise!! After missing the first two, I'll be there!

The Wonder is due for drydock in 2014 (and/or 2015) and the panama canal new locks-project is behind schedule, so we may not get much info until some decisions on all that are made. I think Fall is usually when the port canaveral itineraries are announced, but some years the magic and wonder schedules are not announced until later. Well see.

Schedule for the Wonder for the fall of 2014 was recently finalized (Magic going to PC and doing 7n western and Wonder staying in Miami). Obviously, no dry-dock on the horizon.

More than likely the mandatory inspections will be completed in the water and any actual dry-dock will be postponed until 2015, however hoping that the locks finish the expansion.

Clearly DCL is still planning on having a ship going to the west coast in 2015 and/or 2016 and hence the wait on making any changes to the Wonder and avoiding getting stuck on the East coast.

Unless they do the dry dock on the west coast . Then she'll be "stuck" here.

We were on the 2nd Hawaiian cruise last year and would love to do it again! It was absolutely the best vacation we've even taken!!! I know 99% of our DIS cruise group is also anxiously awaiting an announcement for another cruise to Hawaii... it was a truly unbelievable experience!

Hm. DH and I celebrate our 25th anniversary at the end of March 2015. A Hawaiian cruise sounds like a perfect way to celebrate!

I don't know. We were on the first Hawaii cruise. Seemed pretty full to me.

That's what I was thinking. It may not have been at capacity but it was certainly more full than some cruises I've been on.
