Waiting waiting waiting!!!: it's supposed to be either today or tomorrow or wednesday or in 2 weeks!!!
We'd go back to Alaska with DCL (did it in 2012) if they return to Seattle. The Seattle stop included Victoria, which was great even though it was short.
Our family members did DCL out of Vancouver and the flights were pricey, hotels pricey, transfers pricey.
Seattle was a breeze--cheap flights, public transportation to DT, extra port. Port times are short but that doesn't bother us at all. We're not (at this point) all day excursion people.
We did the 2012 Alaska cruise that started in Seattle and ended in Vancouver. We were told by crew members that in the future they would be going in and out of Vancouver. We found Vancouver to be extremely easy. (we also found Seattle to be easy, but I don't think the switch will be a big problem) We are really hoping to book 2014... today would be great! LOL
We did the awesome DCL Alaska cruise out of Vancouver in July 2012. We looked at the Itineraries for both Seattle and Vancouver. No contest. The Vancouver one was vastly superior to the Seattle one. Yup, a little more expensive to fly to Vancouver but so worth it!
Just called Disney travel agent and they said Silver castaway members can book on Thursday (02/14/2013)!!!!! So i am assuming gold and Platinum will be able to book tomorrow.
Wait... tell me more.... LOL.... What did they say exactly? hee hee
I wish too they had said more..LOL..but all they asked me was about my castaway status and when i said silver, the guy said you will be able to book on Thursday Then i called Costco to find out when they can book and the great TA there didn't even know the 2014 dates have come out!
Very exciting, thanks for the info!
Does anyone know if the 2014 itineraries are the same as 2013? Other than the added 9-night cruise? Thanks!
Also, has anyone flown into/out of Seattle and driven/taken train to Vancouver? Airfare may be much cheaper that way. Thanks again!
That's a great idea, and if i have heard it right the drive is fantastic too. Very scenic. If anybody else has done this please let us know
Yes, amtrak is a great option from Seattle to Vancouver. It's very affordable (usually around $30 per adult) and beautiful. It's super easy, too. There is also a shuttle bus that can take you from Seattle to Vancouver for a good price.
Momma2Jak...Appreciate that info...planning my first Alaskan cruise in 2014...any hotel suggestions in Vancouver??? TIA
I was hoping Disney would do Glacier Bay instead of Tracy Arm, any idea if they are considering this for the 2014 itineraries? Holland America is the only one I can find doing Glacier Bay from Vancouver (at least in 2013)...

Departure dates: June 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, July 7, 14, 21, 28, Aug. 4, 11, 18, 25, Sept. 1

"Wishing" there were more 9 night cruises...Super happy DCL is returning to Alaska!
NINE nights in Alaska? Yes please
looking at booking on thurs for opening alaska does anybody know do all the sailing prices start out the same for all dates? never booked on opening day, thanks in advance.
There is a very lengthy application process to get permits to sail into Glacier Bay. DCL tried to get a permit before they started sailing to Alaska but either gave up or were not successful. Cruise lines that have sailed Alaska forever seem to have them wrapped up.
No, prices are not the same for all dates. Prices go up for peak seasons, i.e. June and July.
Just booked through Costco.
