June 2016 - Disney Wonder to Alaska - Inside Passage
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.
