Save your money and go on a different cruise line. The wait staff was only interested in pushing alchoholic beverages, as the tip for such was automatically added in at the time of purchase. The service rendered wouldn't have met shoreside standards, much less cruise standards set by others in the industry (Norwegian, Celebrity, Etc). The children's programs were largely designed to take your kids off your hands, but if you wanted to be with your children (as we did), you wouldn't really utilize this function. We are long-time Disney fans, holding annual passes for years, and spending two to four weeks annually at Disney World, but the cruise line is second rate at best. Combine this with a price that is 3X the average for cruising and you get a tremendous disappointment. The entertainment was about average for the cruise industry, certainly not the best shows I have seen at sea. (anyone who has seen the "Pan" spectacular on Norwegian will attest to this)
Sail Date: October 01, 2007
Traveled As: Family w/young children
I travel quite a bit and I don't understand the high ratings given by everyone else for this cruise line. I feel that it is vastly overrated.
Pros: On board theater was nice
Cons: service and food were awful, compared to other cruise lines
Recommends Disney Wonder? No.
