A nice way to celebrate an anniversary

Sail Date: October 26, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was immaculate. But to begin, the process through which Disney puts you to board, i.e. paperwork, etc. is almost enjoyable! Who would have thunk that paperwork and i.d.'s could be fun! Streamlined, peppered with staff that was cheerful and helpful. Top notch. Back to the ship. Very nice. Our room (floor 2) was small but we knew that. Not too small...a nice fold down/futon style bed for our 3.5 year old. Food was spot-on. We did the Atlantis aquarium (the Dig) on Nassau and hit the beach early on Castaway Cay...we were even served drinks on the beach! Now THAT'S service. Bring beach toys if you have them. You can buy them on Castaway Cay but we felt silly, even though we did it, because we live on the beach and have a ton. A great time though the Oceaneer's Club (3-7 year olds) caters to the lowest common denominator...those preschoolers who just want to climb. Our son would have loved to have the Kinex toys and more challenging things found in the Oceaneer's Lab (5+ year olds). We got a mere 60 minutes of time the entire trip to have him checked in there before we were paged (a plus feature) because he was sad and un-engaged in an activity. But the togetherness that resulted was fine.

Pros: Staff, food

Cons: Oceaneer's Club (3-7 year olds) too baby/toddler geared...our son wanted to go to the Oceaneer's Lab (5+) but he was too young.

Recommends Disney Wonder? Yes!

Castaway Cay (Disney Private Island)
Good beach. We think it was "created" though...the shells looked plastic. But nice, don't get me wrong. And they serve you drinks on the beach! Just bring your Key to the World card.
Don't Miss: I guess the whole thing is pretty cool.
Nassau, Bahamas
If you're a shopper, do the markets. Be prepared for lots of straw and then the high end of the scale i.e. jewelry, perfume, etc. I am NOT a shopper...so head to Atlantis (a $4 per person cabride...watch out, though, we got gypped to $5 per from one not nice guy...not a big deal but a downer). Go to Atlantis and do the aquarium.
