    My husband and I are going on an Alaskan cruise for 15th anniversary on NCL. We are not taking our daughter. We decided to do another short DCL cruise that includes 2 stops at CC. The Dream does one on 11-13-2014 and the Wonder does two; one is a 5 day and the other is a 4 day. We have already been on the Dream and loved it so it seems like a no brainier. But the Wonder offers an extra day so we could really take advantage of the kids club. Our daughter will be 4 at sailing. Any opinions?

    I didn't see any double dips - can you list the dates for the Wonder one?

    I would personally take the extra day. Go for the longer one!!

    I've been on two 5-night double dips - one on the Wonder and one on the Magic. DD was 3.5 & 4 years old at time of sailing. I would hands down choose the Wonder. The #1 reason would be for one extra day. I've been on the Dream once and Fantasy three times and am looking forward to getting back on the Magic in Oct.; love the classics :)

    Also, the Wonder stops at Key West, which we have never been but wanted to go. But the Wonder is slightly more expensive due to the extra day.

    We took a 5 night double dip on the Dream last year and loved it. I am not a fan of sea days so I might choose the one with the least sea days. However, I would like to try one of the classic ships so the itinerary on the Wonder that visits Key West would be nice too. :)

    Forgot to add...I would personally do a 5-night that also includes a call on Key West. But that's just me. :goodvibes

    I've been on the Wonder, and will be on the Dream 3 weeks from today. I was researching future cruises thinking we might book one on the ship to get the discount. I was ecstatic to see the 5-night double dips next year! I cannot wait to book one! I say go for the longer one, always. :)

    I read somewhere that there are a few ships and dates where you do two stops at CC. I want to look into them so that I can rebook when we are at sea.

    1 - for the extra day
    2 - the beach on CC feels emptier when you get there on the smaller boats - aka less people ....
