    I enjoyed reading your report and seeing your awesome pictures! We'll be on the WBPC cruise next May, and plan to do 2 days in DL afterwards! I especially liked your restaurant information for DL!

    Thank you!

    I so enjoyed your report! I don't know if we will ever make the PC cruise, but your report makes me want to put it on a higher priority. Thanks for sharing!!!

    Oh! And I wanted to add that Phillipa Gregory was my author of choice as well on our Alaska cruise this summer! I read "The Kingmaker's Daughter" a few years ago so this trip it was "The White Queen". Perfect vacation reading!

    Great report!
    We've been talking about his for the past week or so, it is definitely on the bucket list! We are floridians too so I'd like t see DLR but a little nervous since I'm so spoiled by having WDW an hour away whenever we feel like it.

    Thinking maybe we do this in 2016 or2017 depending on if they still offer it. Maybe the new canal will be done so it will be o one of the other ships by then, or at least the wonder will have been refurbed by then.
    Thanks for your report!

    I'm reading your report and am now in the Cartegena section, where I caught a glimpse of your mom's purse! I love Disney Lesportsac, and that midnight Harmony tote is at the top of my hunt! Tell your mom she has nice taste in purses. (and a buyer should she want to get rid of it!) :goodvibes

    We are doing the PC cruise from San Diego to PC in Sept. 2014. I am very much looking forward to more days at sea :cool2: and seeing new ports and sights than we have seen on the Caribbean cruises. I LOVE that first sighting of the cruise ship when arriving :yay:

    OMGosh- I love your trip report! I booked the WBPC for May 2015 and I'm excited now! Cruising through the Panama Canal looks awesome! The only bummer is hearing about the CMs complaining. We were on the Wonder this past October and we met several CM onboard who expressed to us how Disney treats them and they were miserable. It kinda put a little damper on the rest of our trip. I did write on the survey that many CMs were unhappy and that Disney should look into it. I suggested making the moral better for CMs? Maybe the CMs just needed to be reminded of the expectations? I don't know all the facts. With that said- we still had a wonderful time! :thumbsup2

    Thanks for sharing all these details. We are booked on the 2015 West Bound Panama Canal cruise and your posts gave me tons of ideas.

    I also noticed that on the wonder. We were on a b2b right before the wbpc last year and I was appalled at the amount of cast members "playing" on stage while on their breaks. Very un-Disney if u ask my opinion. And it's even stranger to see on this ship because I tend to think of the wonder as having one of the best crews on dcl.
