Verified Review
7 Night Alaska (Vancouver Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 16, 2011
Ship: Disney Wonder
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago
The ship is well taken care of, rooms are a nice size, the rotational dining is enjoyable. The ship lacks in 'family' activites. If you want to drop your kids off at the play areas for the day and go do your own thing- this ship is great for that- but if you want to enjoy time together, it's challenging.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Cruise food- nothing spectacular, the dining room rotations made meal time fun.

I expected more from Disney. Out of the 7 nights- only 2 shows were Disney quality. I think the ship is accustomed to people spending all day at the pool- and with this being an Alaska cruise- with no pool time, the ship lacked sufficient family activities for the 4 at Sea Days.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
The BEST for kids over 3. If you want to drop off your kids and do your own thing- this is the perfect cruise.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Great staff, friendly, happy and accessable

Ship Quality

Extreme Zipline was great.
3 out of 5
If you get stuck here on a rain day- there are few things to do because most require a flight.
5 out of 5
Go Kart Tour is worth the price.

Pros: Lots of Characters on the ship

Cons: Not enough family activities for days at sea- minimal time in ports

Recommends Disney Wonder? Yes!
