On Sept. 14, 2013 we boarded the Disney Wonder in Los Angeles, California for a 14 night cruise through the Panama Canal to Galveston, Texas. On the west coast of Mexico, we had shore excursions in Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta. Then we went through the Panama Canal, and the following day made landfall at Cartegena, Columbia. Our final Port-of-call was Cozumel, Mexico, then two days later we were back in the U.S. when we disembarked in Galveston, TX.
Several people we met on the ship expressed surprise when we told them this was our first cruise. "You mean that you picked a 14 day cruise for your first cruise? Most people make a 3-4 day cruise their first cruise to see if they like it first". We usually told them, "Whats not to like?"
As a matter of fact, They have another cruise next summer that I would love to take, but I've already got an idea of what to do next summer already. Maybe the following summer.
