Weather was not great on this cruise, but you really can't blame Disney for that.
Ship is in need of major overhaul, but it was in good shape given the age. Some things rattle a bit more, some things are loose, some areas show signs of rust and age. However, most areas are still kept clean and regularly painted, varnished, dusted, etc.
Disney cruises are great for multigenerational cruising and for family cruises, particularly with elementary school age children. However, if you like Disney, you can have fun no matter your age.
Children's activities are great, but the number of adult activities could be bumped up a bit. The family shows were good and kept to an hour or less. There were other variety acts during the cruise and they had the new Star Wars movie as well. Pirate night was great for the kids, particularly the fireworks at sea.
Food was hit or miss, with decent quality and great service in the dining halls. However, the temperature could be off, usually cooler than expected. Palo, the extra charge adults only venue was worth it.
A Disney cruise is premium priced to many other cruise lines, just like their theme parks are priced higher than others. Disney may not have the largest ships, or the most activities for adults, but there is something for all age groups.If you want to gamble, dance or drink the night away, then this is not the best choice. If you want to spend time with your family, or want an adults area that you will have mostly to yourself, this could work.
We will do another Disney cruise again, but try another ship, or wait until the Wonder is re-imagined like its older twin the Magic.

Service and Staff
If you do not need to catch a bus or shuttle to the airport, take your time getting off the ship. Let the folks in line leave, then casually stroll off the ship, grab your bags and breeze through customs.
