Bookings for a 2-Night "Weekend Getaway" Cruise on the Disney Wonder open tomorrow. The cruise departs at 5pm Friday, January 21 2011 and returns 9:30am Sunday, January 23. This cruise fills the 2-night gap between the arrival of the Disney Wonder from Port Canaveral (via the Panama Canal) and the first of the 2011 Mexican Riviera cruises.
This is a real "cruise to nowhere," as the ship won't be making any port stops - Saturday is a "day at sea."
We don't have any pricing details yet, but Ted Bradpiece from Two Bears Travel said to expect $400-$500 per person for a Cat 9 (Ocean View) stateroom.
It's tough to judge demand for a 2-night "cruise to nowhere" in this market, but if you're interested, call your travel agent tonight or first thing tomorrow morning to book.
It looks like there are a bunch of MousePadders on this cruise, so I'm starting an official Roll Call:
It's CRUISE DAY!
Updated with more cabin numbers and added the folks who joined us after the last update. If you have any more info you'd like to add, please post it here.
Cabin numbers, if we know them, are in red. If your information is in grey, it means we're missing some vital info about your group, like room number or how many in your party.
WHY DO WE NEED YOUR CABIN NUMBER? We don't, BUT, it's the only way we can find you to distribute whatever little gifts people might be bringing. (That's the whole "Fish Extender" thing). That's also why it helps to list who you're rooming with, even if you just want to list age and gender, so we can make sure to include everyone.

ROOM HOPPING - Updated 1/18
Due to lack of participation from anyone in categories 2 - 8, we've decided to cancel room hopping. Since the general idea is to allow folks to see as many different types of rooms as possible, there's no real point in everyone going to see another example of the category they are already in.
Instead, ALittlePixieDust has VERY GRACIOUSLY offered to host a MousePad meet-and-greet from 2-3pm in the Walt Disney Suite, room 8030. Since the room isn't big enough to hold all 130+ of us this will just be an opportunity to tour the room, but will not be a gathering. (Putting it as nicely as I can, you're invited to tour the room, not hang out.)
The "OFFICIAL" MousePad gathering will be during the Sail Away Party. Come find us on Deck 10 (very top deck of the ship) on the port midship section. I'll have the MousePlanet gifts there, and will distribute them to everyone who stops by.
