    I see cruises for up to May 2020. Can someone tell me how far in advance the cruises come out. We are looking for September 2020

    And Mexico. San Diego sailings are popular with those in California and the rest of west coast.

    Nice find. And quite opportune for us, as we'd love to finish a long Asian/European trip that summer with a big cruise on the Magic.

    Would October also be included in that estimate or would those roll out at a later date?

    The February/March release would be for Summer 2020--May-early September. The following release (May/June?) would be the fall/winter release September-December 2020.

    Any reason why Disney won’t/can’t schedule Hawai’i in July or August?

    We are in the U.K. and our children only have six weeks off from end of July until beginning of September and we are desperate to do a Hawaiian cruise!

    I don’t get why they have only ever scheduled them during term time - surely there are other families that would want to go to Hawaii?

    I get that the Alaskan cruises have been popular for years, but surely they could forego them for one year? After all, they aren’t selling out like the Hawaii ones are they?

    Could be that the Wonder is doing Alaska during July and August. The Mouse can turn several Alaska cruises in the same time the ship can go to Hawai'i and back.

    I think it's unlikely. Other cruise lines are adding ships to Alaska, not pulling them out. Those are expensive cruises and sell well, and Alaska is a very short season. I may be in the minority on this board, but we live in CA and nobody i know here ever considers cruising to Hawaii. We all fly there so we can maximize our time on the islands. Just something to consider if DCL doesn't sail there when it works for you.

    Yes, we’ve flown to Hawaii a couple of times, but really want to do another cruise with our children to the islands (we sailed from Vancouver pre-children with CCL).

    I know we could do the Norwegian cruise from Honolulu on the Pride of America, but we’d much prefer to do it with Disney.

    I’m just getting really fed up of Disney doing the same old,same old every summer - we are going to Norway with them this year, and have done the Med ones three times, but we don’t fancy Alaska at all - we like the summer to be warm - after all we get enough cold in the U.K.!

    I have a question about timing.

    I thought I understood how all of this works but turns out, I don’t!

    We are all awaiting the day the new itineraries are released for summer 2020. There is also a lot of discussion regarding booking dates for various Castaway Club levels and DVC folks.

    Are the itineraries released first then after a period of time they set dates for platinum booking then gold then ...?

    How much time will there be to digest the routes before it’s time to book?

    OR can platinum book the same day the intineries are released?

    Thank you in advance for the clarity!

    I think - may be wrong - we have seen the itineraries on Thursday and Platinums could book on Monday, Golds on Tuesday, Silvers on Wednesday, newbies on Thursday.

    Yes that’s been the pattern for the last year.

    We are WDW veterans and I booked our first Disney Cruise for 1/20-1/24/20 on the Disney Dream. We are a mom/daughter duo. I am really excited. We will do the parks most likely before the cruise and 1 night after.

    If they forgo Alaska for a year they may be in breach of contract depending on the timing... if they wait until the contract expires and take a year off their spot may be swooped up by another line. Ports are very much use them or lose them if they are popular.

    I am slightly confused as to why Norway would be a warm destination but Alaska would be “cold” in your book. Anchorage is actually slightly further south than Oslo, Norway. And the cruise ports visited on the inside passage are further south than Anchorage. We went last year on another cruise line and had beautiful weather the first week in June.

    If the weather is your only objection to Alaska, you might want to reconsider as I do not think it is as “cold” as some people imagine it to be. (I say this, because I’ve heard objections similar to yours from others before.) I’ve also read dozens of trip reports from people who didn’t want to go to Alaska until they did and then found it to be much better weather and much more enjoyable than they thought it would be.

    Hmmm.....well, you don't know me. We've done 2 Hawaii cruises (one DCL, one Princess). Also have a Hawaii/Tahiti cruise upcoming. And we live in CA. We've also flown to Hawaii, when that was the destination.

    We view our cruises as the destination, and any ports of call part of that trip.

    Thanks will have to look into it if Disney doesn't do another Hawaii sailing in the Summer.
