    Yeah, I'm hoping the rate at which the rooms have gone on the 2-nighter out of San Diego next year (the price brackets are kind of insane now!) proves to DCL that the west coast mistake was theirs in ONLY doing 7-nights to Mexico. Even the most basic business knowledge includes offering samples to a market—they really dropped the ball by not offering 2/3/4 night cruises when they moved the Wonder to SoCal, especially since she was only sailing here during the school year.

    I checked my reservation on the 2-nighter and I could upgrade to a Cat T for less than what it would cost to book a Cat 10 today. O_O Now if I could just find $1500 extra lying around somewhere... LOL!

    Insane prices to say the least...for in reality it is only 1 full day.....I wish they would come back here...if they were here for the summer I would be on it in June or July....but instead had to book out of florida...have not been on the Fantasy yet but I hate the flight....when younger it was all cool...even on a 10 hr flight...at 55 its boring and long....5-7 hrs yuck...not to mention getting off the ship at 8:30 or so and not catching the first flight out till around 5:55pm to San Diego...again Yuck! but am looking forward to being on the Fantasy....

    to bad they cant beam me up like on Star Trek :lmao:

    I booked opening day for public and it was the same per person/per day as one of the west coast repos once I factored in the costs of one-way travel to or from Vancouver. And it's still cheaper than any other DCL cruise after round-trip travel&mdash;even *before* travel expenses for the Dream and Fantasy!

    I'm very glad I booked it when I did, as there's no way I could justify it at the current prices.

    Duuuuuuude... I was looking at that 2-night thinking I might surprise my boys, but holy COW! I'm the one who got surprised. I'm too old to have my eggs harvested and I really like both my kidneys, so it looks like I'll just have to hold out and pray for some 2015 dates!

    With Disney, the more days you stay and play, the per date rate decreases. Same with the parks. Gotta make it a 3 or 4...

    Do you think the 2015 dates will be that more expensive than 2014?

    I recall the wait for 2014 dates..... there was even a thread on when people thought itineraries would be released. As I recall MANY of those dates came and went! I was so eager for the new itineraries, now I'm ready for next years plans.

    Here's one of the threads from opening day prices: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3004842

    The only problem with West coast cruises is people don't want to go on them because of problems in the Mexican ports on the pacific side. So that doesn't really leave many places they can sail. I think the closest they will get to doing west coast cruises is the alaskan cruise out of Vancouver.

    They also do a west coast repositioning cruise from LA or San Diego to Vancouver in the spring, then back in the fall.

    good point, but I don't think that's what people really have in mind when they say they want west coast cruises. They want to board the ship in a port sail somewhere and return to the same port.

    I'm really anxious for summer 2015 cruises. The family REALLY wants to do the Alaska cruise that year! Dh and I are doing a 10 year vow renewal that summer and Alaska is our first choice so fingers crossed!

    My bet is the Baltic for the Magic. I really would like to see summer sailings for Hawaii.

    The problem is not where they're sailing. The problem is the combination of ONLY 7-night cruises with a market unfamiliar with the product and the school year. As I already said, the 2-nighters DCL has offered out of LA and San Diego sell fast and at much higher per person/per day rates than the problematic MRs. They can easily do 2/3/4 night closed-loop cruises to Ensenada, Catalina, Santa Barbara, target advertising to Disneyland visitors and passholders, and offer CA resident rates. You know, the strategy they successfully used in Florida to launch the brand in the first place. ;)

    The current price brackets are insane. An inside room for 4 is over double the rate I locked in when it went on sale. Same for porthole.

    I know we would love a West coast cruise and couple it with a Disneyland visit :) I will be happy with any 7 day cruise my family decides to do in 2015!!

    I would LOVE to sail out of New Orleans! I wonder what the itinerary would be -- maybe some NEW ports :surfweb:
