The Wonder is Back!

Welcome to what I hope is the penultimate installment of the "The _____ is Back!"  On October 1st, the Disney Wonder started its first cruise since Disney suspended operations due to the pandemic in March 2020.  The Wonder's first few cruises will start and end in San Diego, California.  Since this is a very long way from Castaway Cay, these are the first Disney cruises since cruises have resumed to visit a port of call other than Castaway Cay.  Instead of visiting Castaway Cay, the Wonder will be visiting some Mexican ports like Cabo San Lucas (on 4-night cruises) and Ensenada (on 3-night cruises) for a while.

The Wonder's last cruise from San Diego will begin on November 5th.  This is an Eastbound Panama Canal cruise, and everyone on this cruise must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to sail, likely because it's so long.  This will be the Wonder's most interesting cruise of 2021, and I hope it goes well. After this, the Wonder will go on some Caribbean cruises from Galveston, Texas to finish up the year.

With the Wonder finally cruising with passengers once again, all four of the DCL ships have now resumed cruises.  If nothing causes any of the ships to suspend operations, then I'll make the last post like this when the Magic returns to the United States and resumes normal, non-Magic at Sea cruises.  

The Wonder's cruise restart is wonderful news, but you may have heard some less wonderful DCL news recently about the Key to the World cards.  A post about that is coming in a few rotations, so I hope you're not too hungry for more information.
