Are you thinking about booking a Disney Cruise from Vancouver to San Diego? Every year the Disney Wonder needs to re-position from the Vancouver to the west coast of San Diego California when she has finished sailing her Alaskan itineraries for the summer. A great opportunity to sail on the Disney Wonder is to sail from Vancouver to San Diego in the Fall or back again in the Spring.
Disney Cruise Vancouver to San Diego
The Disney Wonder sails from Vancouver to San Diego on September 11 2017.
Here is the itinerary:
Day 1 Vancouver
Day 2 Victoria
Day 3 At Sea
Day 4 At Sea
Day 5 San Diego
The great thing about this Disney Cruise Vancouver to San Diego itinerary is that it is unique. It has 2 days at sea and just one port stop in Victoria. You have to think about whether or not this is the Disney cruise for you. The huge advantage is that it is a re-positioning cruise, so these are usually a great value on a per night basis. The disadvantage is that you start in one port and end in another. This means that unless you live in or close to San Diego or Vancouver, your flight or ground travel expenses may add too much into the mix.
These Disney cruise line re-positioning cruises are really for the more flexible traveler. Most people prefer returning to the same port that they sailed out of. However, if you do have flexibility then the Disney Cruise Vancouver to San Diego itinerary offers a great value. For us, two days at sea on a 5 day cruise is ideal. The more time spent on the Disney Wonder the better. However, if you are looking for a port intensive Disney cruise this may not be the option for you.
Why Sail on the Disney Wonder?
We have to confess that we have a soft spot for the Disney Wonder. It was the first Disney ship that we sailed on and it holds a very special place in our heart. Of course it is easy to say that the newer, bigger Disney Fantasy and Dream are better ships.
However, although we love all the Disney ships we think that the Disney Wonder has the best crew. Disagree with us if you like, but for us the Disney Wonder is always like coming home because there are so many crew who have sailed with her for years and who we look forward to seeing when we sail again.
Bigger doesn’t always equal better. We love Disney Fantasy and Dream as well, but given the choice the Disney Wonder usually wins for us.
