I live in Walnut Creek and CaliforniaGirl09 is in another city in the East Bay. Good idea on the Giants!

CaliforniaGirl chiming in! I haven't had a chance to read through the thread yet, but wanted to say "hi." Looking forward to getting to know you all as we plan for our cruise! The Giants game is a great idea! The stadium is one of the best in baseball (I've been to most of them).

I agree! Not many bad seats in that stadium...though 336 gets pretty cold at night

This one appeals to us because it is on the West Coast (where we live), and we are excited to sail under the Golden Gate Bridge. We are both from the San Fransisco Bay Area, and I would be happy to try to answer any questions about things to do in the area. Looking forward to getting to know our fellow cruise travelers over the next year plus. I'd love to make some magnets for this cruise, so if anyone has come up with some magnet images they would be willing to share, that would be great.
Hiya neighbor. I'm just up the 680 from you in Cordelia.

As others have said, not stressing, just musing over what circumstance we might decline to join.

Then we'll definitely be in! I'll have to ask my girlfriend if she wants to join as well.

Sailing under the Golden Gate last year was one of my favorite parts of cruising the California Coast. There's just something magical about it, was totally worth waking up at 6am on vacation (which is not something I do often!).




Just FYI, San Francisco is NOT a good driving city (other than those cute little GO-cars I see tourists in the street driving sometimes, that looks fun). If you're thinking about heading up to Napa/Sonoma or want to see anything outside SF, a rental is a good idea, but I'm terrified of driving inside SF itself, and I lived here for all of my 20's. I usually ditch my car in the East Bay and take the subway in just because the mental effort of not having a collision then trying to find parking is such a nightmare! (Except in the business district on the weekends, then you're fine. But I digress.)

Welcome, glad you joined us on the cruise and on the thread. I already have you on the roster on the first page.

Those of us on the East Coast will take any suggestions you locals have on how to spend our day.

My thinking on food is:
some crab on Fishermans Warf (love the experience)
definitely need some Boudin's sourdough
maybe a nice lunch in NorthBeach
maybe dinner at Scoma's or Allioto's (I know, touristy)

Definitely open to suggestions.

Hi all! I just booked this cruise. It'll be me (Heather, I'll be 30 when we sail) and my mother. It's my second time on the Wonder and her first DCL cruise.

I don't want to start a brawl with anyone from Maryland, LOL, but I think our dungeness are the best so you won't get any arguments from me on that. I think your plans sound fun (and tatty

OK, I had someone PM me and ask about the "wordie", I think they called it. I referred them to the website and she wrote back that she could not find a Mickey Head to use on the site. Jessica, do you know if there is a a Mickey Head shape available for people to make their own? I wasn't sure what to tell her. Would your friend share the Mickey or no?

And, please, do tell your friend that I appreciate what they created for us. It makes me smile everytime I see my signature. I plan to print it out and make a magnet for my cabin door as well.

Hi everyone! We are joining you on this cruise. This is our first cruise ever and we are beyond excited!! It will be me and DH and our two boys who will be a week shy of 5 and 2 at the time of sailing.

Looks like we have a lot of Californians on this group! Add me to the list. I lived in SF and around the bay area for a few years before I moved to southern California about 13 years ago. I can't wait to sail under the Golden Gate Bridge! That is going to be spectacular!!

We want the full experience so count us in for the FE!

This seems like a great group!

I have been playing with that site too! So addictive. I have a Mickey head if you want it. Can I send files over PM? Or could I email it? I am happy to share it.

I have a regular Mickey Head, can you use any shape? I tried working with the program at work and I couldn't get it to cooperate.

Welcome, I have you added to the roster. Yes, there are a lot of Cali people on this sailing and if I lived out there I would take advantage of having a DCL ship in my back yard too.

It will be interesting to see what you end up doing with your day in San Francisco.
