Review summary

I bought this cruise because it was going through the Panama Canal.  I did not know that this would be the LAST time A Disney ship would be going through the original canal.  From now on, all Disney ships will be going through the New Panama Canal.  This fact is what made this cruise even more special to us.


Also, this would be Disney Wonder's last trip before going to dry dock in Barcelona for updating and refurbishment.  This meant that this was the most outdated ship in Disney cruise line.  This also explains why doe areas of the ship looked tired and worn.  Some passengers report that tile was starting to lift in the bathrooms.


Many of the props backstage had already been wrapped and secured in preparation for most passenger felt that the entertainment for this particular cruise was sub-par.  (We couldn't tell because this was our first Disney cruise)


Other than that, we have no complaints about our cruise.
