Disney hasn't quite figured out Alaska

Sail Date: August 16, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

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.

Pros: Lots of Characters on the ship

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

Recommends Disney Wonder? Yes!

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.
Ship Quality
Great Ship, especially considering its age.
Food and Dining
Cruise food- nothing spectacular, the dining room rotations made meal time fun.
Cabin / Stateroom
Compared to most cruises, rooms have a bit of space
Service and Staff
Great staff, friendly, happy and accessable
Children's Programs
The BEST for kids over 3. If you want to drop off your kids and do your own thing- this is the perfect cruise.
Juneau, Alaska
If you get stuck here on a rain day- there are few things to do because most require a flight.
Ketchikan, Alaska
Go Kart Tour is worth the price.
Skagway, Alaska
Extreme Zipline was great.
