Mixed feelings !?!?!?
Disney Wonder Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
Sail Date: March 15, 2007
Ship: Disney Wonder
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 11 years ago
Our family: Myself (32 year old Lifetime lover of all things Disney), DH 31, DD 4, DS 18 months.
Upon arrival at the cruise terminal in Port Canaveral we were incredibly impressed with the level of organization outside (directing cars to unload and park etc). Once inside the check-in process was flawless. (Far better than what we experienced with Royal Caribbean 6 months earlier).
Upon boarding we were warmly greeted by all crew members, the ship is pretty but not "wow". We checked out our room and it was, as expected, small (Catagory 11 inside) We would have loved a balcony, but it was simply out of our price range. We will never again cruise with an inside room!
The entertainment and character experiences were the highlight of the cruise. My daughter seemed to enjoy the Oceaneer Club and my son loved Flounder's Nursery.
Where then was our disappointment? Well... throughout our cruise we felt that the dinner service was horribly rushed, the buffet service was lacking, and the overall crew "vibe" was one of discontent.
If you're looking for easy access to character greeting experiences, then this is the ship for you!
If you're looking at dollar-to-dollar value, we just didn't think that this cruise was worth Disney's exorbitant prices. We won't be back.
