Really enjoyed the cruise as a whole. The itinerary was fantastic and our excursions were wonderful. The food was good and the open dining was good for breakfast and lunch, but preferred a more quiet setting for dinner in the included specialty restaurants.  Thought the prices in the specialty dining areas and drinks were higher than on other cruise lines. The Jewel did not have some of the more modern in-room features for checking onboard account or making reservations.  The staff were fairly new in the dining areas.  We encountered daily challenges with the toilet in our rooms not functioning because someone kept depositing things not intended for use in them.  Getting onboard and off went very well.

Disney Wonder

October 2013 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston roundtrip) Cruise on Disney Wonder

DOCSGM's Tips

Ketchikan, Alaska - Take the trip to see the totem poles and enjoy a little local market for some wonderful jams and syrups - you might even see a bear trying to catch salmon.
Juneau, Alaska - Take time to go to Mendenhall Glacier and walk to the waterfall. Bring a towel and challenge yourself to put your foot/feet or walk in the water (feels like an ice bath) to the sand bar for great pictures.
Skagway, Alaska - Visit Olivia's for GREAT food - everything was fresh and expertly prepared. The bus tour and helicopter rides are the best options.
Cruise Sawyer Glacier - As the ship heads into the area, be at Spinnakers - get there early. The ship makes a 180 degree rotation to exit.
Seattle, Washington - Contact Northwest Tours for a wonderful and worthwhile experience - city, Pike Place, and Space Needle - ask for Yager. Great price and fantastic guide. Use the trolley and Link to help with hills.
Freedom of the Seas Freedom of the Seas - Schedule you dinner times early so you have the rest of the evening for shows and whatever.
Port Canaveral, Florida - Too bad they discriminate as to the type of handicapped parking is free. I use a cane and had my arm in a sling, but did not qualify for free parking even with my decal.
Freedom of the Seas Freedom of the Seas - Schedule you dinner times early so you have the rest of the evening for shows and whatever.
