    Poorly written article. No mention of where the ship is currently home ported. I know, I can look it up; however, come on.

  4. Disney Fan says:

    Wrong info in the webcast. The Disney Magic was on the West Coast in 2005 and 2008. It’s the first time for the Disney Wonder.

  5. SJP says:

    If the oher two ships pulled out of L.A. because of travel to Mexico, due to the violence, then why is Disney Wonder going to Mexican Rivera?

    I would be more interested in LA to Alaska cruises
