May 19 - 24, 2014 San Diego to Vancouver

Alright, I have been waiting for someone to start a thread for this sailing, but it hasn't happened yet, so I will go ahead get this going. I will be glad to keep up with those sailing and will add any links needed.

My SIL and I will be boarding the Wonder in San Diego, going on to Vancouver and then staying on for the May 24th Alaskan sailing. Since we are flying into San Diego, I hope to get lots of tips on hotels for the night(s) before, maybe a spot to pick up some wine before boarding and things to do in San Diego. I have been there, but it has been years, and I visited the zoo, the Wild Animal Park and shopped at Horton Plaza. But it has been so long that any of this would be new again to me.

So, I hope some others join me here soon.

***IMPORTANT NOTICE*** In case you have not seen the discussion here or on FB, this cruise will be docking at the Ballantyne Pier in Vancouver, not at Canada Place. So, if you have made transportation arrangements for Canada Place, you may need to see what your options are.

INFORMATIONAL THREADS/LINKS THAT MIGHT BE HELPFUL

Info regarding transportation between Canada Place and the airport:

Information regarding power outlets on The Wonder:

and about Alaskan beer: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3251806

While this thread was asked of the Fantasy, I thought some of it applied to the Wonder as well:

Here is a Cruise Critic thread that appears to have lots of San Diego information. I searched San Diego and several posts came up that I plan to check out when I get the chance...

Suggestions of what to do in San Francisco:

I am sitting here watching a movie that takes place in San Francisco and they have shown the Golden Gate bridge several times and it made me think that in about a year we will be sailing underneath her.

How does that work? Is the Feb 3rd excursion booking just for platinum members or anyone who has paid in full? And if you pay in full to book, is the itinerary fare still refundable without penalty utility March 5th? Thanks in advance!

I am going to have to check on those dates. Somebody gave me that date, so I will confirm, as I am not Platinum myself. Could be that is the Platinum date, so I will find out the other dates and get those posted as well. One way to find out exactly what your dates are is to go the DCL page and pull up your reservation. Final pay date should be the same for everyone. It is interesting to me that the final pate day for the San Diego sailing, which happens before the Alaska sailing, is after the final pay date for the Alaska sailing. I don't know if sailing out of Vancouver is considered "international" or not, but that could be the case.

Yes, my understanding is that you can get a refund up until final payment is due. I think they make the booking dates earlier so that people will go ahead and pay so they can book spa, dining and excursions and not wait until the last minute. Once your final payment is due, then the penalties begin, and I have thankfully never had to deal with that either.

OK, rounderjd, dates in the information post have been updated. I calculated these dates myself, so if anyone sees something not quite right, please let me know as I have been known to make a mistake or two or three.

Hello all!

We will be joining you - and this will be the 2nd leg of a B2B (we're also booked on the "Cruise to Nowhere" on the 17th). So while those of you going on to Alaska will be doing the happy dance, I'll be crying in my Cheerios when we reach Vancouver.

Sailing will be me, DH, and DS, 12.

This B2B will make cruises #4 and #5 - so finally GOLD status!

Looking forward to meeting everyone!

-Leslie

I've never considered myself riff-raff...but then I did just return from a Carnival cruise and felt right at home. Aww man, what's happened to me?!?

In the eight months I lived in San Diego, I never found a good Mexican restaurant. My co-workers there said it's because the food down there is too authentic and that I should stick to Chevy's and El Torito. Maybe they were right.

A previous post had some good suggestions for San Francisco but I also wanted to say the Walt Disney Family Museum in the Presidio is excellent. A walk across the Golden Gate Bridge on a clear day is fantastic as well but I'm pretty sure there are only two clear days a year and they are usually in August.

Pier 39 is a very touristy place to go but there is a lot there to do including taking a ferry out to Alcatraz, taking a bay cruise, or visiting the aquarium.

And if you had so much in the 60's that you can't remember them at all, a nice stroll through Haight-Ashbury might be for you. Just don't try to bring any souvenirs you buy from there on the ship with you!
