Disney has done an amazing job with this ship. The dining staff and food were excellent.  Tiana's place was our Favorite  restaurant.  The live music and party was Awesome!! My kids  LOVED the Oceaneer's club. The nightly entertainment was excellent.  We loved dressing up for pirate night. Only drawback is that I felt like we needed more time to do all the activities. We will take a longer cruise next time.

The staff greets you with a smile, and they treated my son with excellent service.  And when the staff learns your family name, they greet you with your name and asking you how was your day.  Each staff member care about making your day the best day that you have had or will try to make it right for you if something went wrong.

All day and all night pampering. Actually took me a half day and 2 " Don't worry about that, you're on vacation", until I truly got in the swing. Took a few day to readjust to reality. We CAN'T wait until out next one!

We loved the island of Castaway Cay and having lunch there.  Everyone on board was so kind and helpful.  The Disney Wonder was so clean and beautiful also.  Loved the restaurants!  The shows were amazing!

I would recommend this cruise to anyone.

Room for improvement

Steps should be taken for guests that have carriages (presumably your target market).  One elevator should be designated as carriage/handicap only.  Maybe if we departed from a different port the general public would have the curiosity or common sense to let those carriage guests on the elevator.  Also posting a sign suggesting that capable people (perhaps overweight but physically capable) to try the stairs when they only need to travel one or two decks.  Maybe place candies or chocolates halfway up each stairwell as an incentive to take the stairs.   

 

Another suggestion regarding the language barrier (even through we departed from a US Territory where English is the official language); would be to have those guests needing translation during the loud announcements to muster in a specific location or to have staff in several areas throughout the vessel translating. 

 

Other than that, the kids loved seeing Mickey.

Awesome Memories

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Loved the restaurants for dinner, loved Disney's private island. There was always stuff to do, and really not just stuff but enjoyable things at all times. We couldn't do it all, in fact there were many parts of the ship we didn't get to just because of time. Met great people and made friends. Only real negatives were weather related and cant be controlled by disney. Some not as positive things were the breakfast and lunch were not the best quality and sometimes felt like I was eating cardboard, or cardboard mush but you learn fast whats good and whats not. Like everything else with Disney, merchandise and other products or services comes at a premium price but it is worth it.

Entertainment great, too many lines

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

Disney Wonder has delicious food, fantastic entertainment and friendly staff. There are just two incidents that kept me from reviewing the trip higher. One is that there was a lot of waiting. At certain times there were long lines at breakfast lasting about 20 minutes or so. For popular activities, we waited in many lines. For our excursions, two out of three times, we waited in lines more than an hour late for our excursion to depart. Families do not like lines, so that could be improved upon.  I also want to make a note of how my son's retractable light saber was taken from us at the port as a prohibited item and my stateroom was taken, yet three days later, I see other kids have the exact same item and said they bought it on the ship. So basically, I started the cruise with a crying child whose toy should not have been taken at all. If an item is prohibited it should not be sold by Disney on board.

I would return on this cruise some time in the future.

Panama Canal trip

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

we did enjoy going on the Disney Panama Canal trip.  I will say I was worried since it was a Disney cruise but ended up not very many children on the cruise after all. They are bad about pushing future cruises or their vacation club along with souvenirs such as pictures.  you could not decide what size picture you wanted.  All were 8x10 and cost $22 each.

Disney Wonder Alaska-June 2016

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Let me start out by saying the staff was amazing, they kept everything nice and clean, and always greeted you with a smile no matter where you were.  The ship itself was a good size, even though it carries so many passengers, there were times you could still find an isolated location to just admire the beauty outdoor as we sailed.  The food was great in the evenings, it helped that our servers were well knowledgeable in regards to what to recommend.  They never steered me wrong.  I did notice that the majority of cruises were not aware of dress codes, for formal nights or semi-formal nights.  That might be something that needs to be told to cruises when booking.  I only found out because I have had that happen to me in a past cruise, and it does make you feel uncomfortable when dinning on those days.  As for the activities, at first I was a little concerned since my children are in their teens, I wasn't sure if they would find things to do.  But my 13 year old had a great time at the Edge and made new friend who he is still in contact with.  As for my 16 year old, he was not that interested in the activities at the Vibe (all these are assigned clubs by age).  Although I do have to say they did have some great shows that we were all able to see as a family.  I would have preferred to have more activities that would let both boys interact with the family, kind of like a middle tier for kids 12 and up.  The activities were more at a level for little kids 10 and under with their family members.  That didn't stop us from participating and having fun, it's Disney after all.  Overall it was a great experience with fantastic weather.
