Anyone know why this cruise isn't being offered in 2020? Think it might come back for 2021?
Maybe it wasn't profitable for DCL. Maybe they couldn't line up the ports in a easy flow. Maybe DCL found the 7 night cruises were better for them.Anyone know why this cruise isn't being offered in 2020? Think it might come back for 2021?
Definitely not a slow seller. This year's cruise was practically sold out. My guess would be a scheduling thing. I feel very fortunate to have been on 2 9 night Alaskan cruises!Slow seller would be my guess, or maybe the 5 night that immediately follows was the slow seller. Next year already sees 4 Alaskan cruises in June and July with Canadian discount offers so my (selfishly optimistic) guess is that they aren't selling well in general.
I'm with you on Icy Strait, that was a new port for us and I didn't see much reason to go back (other than to try the zip line). I like Sitka, but it was better when the ships used to tender right into town. The dock they use there now is a long ways out of town. You can get to Hubbard on a 7 day round trip itinerary on other lines, we've done it on HAL. Glacier Bay is very nice, but Hubbard is more spectacular IMHO.I would love to do the 9 night Alaska if offered in 2021. 7 nights was great but I would really love to go to Hubbard Glacier. But, I would much rather go back to Skagway than go to Sitka, and I don't have any interest in Icy Straight Point, so I hope they can rearrange the itinerary. I could also see sailing with Princess to go to Glacier Bay.
