    Weren't the NYC cruises really successful? I can see them wanting to go back there. We did one of the Canada cruises out of NYC and combined that with a few days in the Big Apple followed by Niagara Falls. It was a wonderful trip! Cruise seemed really busy, but I think the ones that went south instead of north out of NYC were even more popular.

    I'd personally love a Baltic cruise, but a ship leaving out of NOLA would be great! That is only about 3 hours from us, so we wouldn't even need a hotel the night before, though I don't think I could resist staying at least a night in NOLA!

    Doesn't this also have something to do with new port fees or regulations?

    We need a Honey Badger thread!

    Honey Badger wears what he wants on formal night.

    Honey Badger smokes all day and night on his verandah.

    Honey Badger brings Baby Honey Badger to Adults Only areas.

    My survey was all about which ports I had already been to and which ones I would go back to and why. They didn't mention Roatan (boo! LOVE that) but it had quite a few on there. I think they are interested in pursuing other itineraries. CCL can do it because they have a bajillion ships...if you want to go on them.. initeraries are the only good thing going for them. And my friends picked our CCL Dream to go to Nassau, St Thomas & St Maarten! Wow! I'm pretty sure DCL goes there LIKE EVERY WEEK...

    Come on DCL! Pick NOLA!!!

    Btw Belize...pretty much a let down...

    Yes! If only we could cruise California coast in the Summer. I know those Cali cruises sold poorly but, none were offered furring summer months

    That's because the Wonder is in Alaska for the summer months. That's the only time that cruises really can operate there. Whereas, cruising the pacific coast cruises can operate pretty much anytime (weather-wise).

    Even sailing from NOLA, it is the same places ships have gone to over and over for years. You would get NOLA, but then people would complain it is not family oriented. Maybe Belize thrown in, but basically Cozumel, Jamaica, Grand Cayman. Possibly Key West.

    summer southern Caribbean. We really like the longer cruises but can't miss that much school.

    They could do southern Caribbean from Miami, it would be quicker to get there. It takes a long time for a cruise ship to sail out of New Orleans and go all the way down the Mississippi River into the Gulf. It is not like sailing right into open water. (I'm originally from NOLA and have done it before.)

    Us too! We sailed on the Wonder three times while it was here. I'm still hoping they will try again with a big advertising push this time. And maybe try out some shorter cruises that people can combine with DLR to keep their vacation at a week. I would be all over a 3 or 4 night with Catalina and Ensenada ports (we just stayed on the ship in Ensenada and enjoyed the Adult pool for the day, LOL).

    I think Catalina is cute, but can't really handle a cruise ship worth of people all at once.

    Ok, I think Catalina is cute, but I won't want to be there when a cruise ship lets loose its passengers ;)

    I do notice most of those ships only carry 2000 passengers.

    True, it could be that Catalina sets a limit on the number of passengers. The Wonder is what, 2400? So that could be over (just a guess).

    DCL could always try San Diego or Santa Barbara and Ensenada.

    Please don't beg for Ensenada! Horrible port of call unless you left the city area.
