Review summary

We enjoyed it, just had a better experience the first time that we cruised on the Disney Wonder. We cruised a few years back, so I guess that the years put some wear on the ship. But I would still recommend your Cruise line and service.

Embarkation

4 out of 5
Boat was noisy and vibration in Stateroom, sound like it had a bad propeller. A lot of rocking too. Last time we were on the Disney Wonder it was smooth and quiter.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Main Dining was fantastic! Our Assistant Server should have been the Main Server, she was more efficient and spoke better English.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We watched the LIVE shows; Disney Gold, Frozen and Dreams. All of us loved them! Very well done and entertaining. 5 STARS! Enjoyed the pool too! A MUST: Download the Disney Cruise App before going on Cruise, can NOT download it on ship! Very handy for Dining (time ,menu and which dining room), Activities (times and location, plus excursions) and Finances (money spent and billing). Wonderful App!

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Also enjoyed the Adult Entertainment programs, had the Beer Tasting Class. Friends went to the Whiskey Tasting and had fun.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
The Grandchildren had lots of fun, granddaughter got in on Bippity Boop Botique and was done up into a beautiful princess.

Aloft

5 out of 5

I forgot to mention, A MUST: Downloading the Disney App on your cell phone! Very helpful for everything; dining menu and where, activities that you sign up for , communication with others (texting) and you can check your spending (billing). The only problem is you have to download it before going on the cruise. Can NOT download on ship!

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
At first, are main waiter wasn't to good , one lady complained about his body odor. His English was broken and he didn't speak loud and clear enough. Assist Waitress was more efficient, she should be head Waiter, she addressed us all by our names and was very cheerful and polite. The room Steward was very nice and did her job very well, room was always clean and organized.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Very surprised on how clean that all the areas were, I seen how they kept the decks cleaned at night (power-washing and scrubbers), very impressive.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Only wish that the sink faucet didn't blast out a spray so hard and had a little bit more room around the toilet. Did have a bad odor (smelled like an insecticide) in our stateroom on Tuesday, called maintenance and found out that they were doing some work on Deck 7 in the Aft. They stopped after the complaint.

Ship tip

Get a Stateroom towards the middle of the ship, no engine noise and less walking to all the activites.

Ports of call

San Juan, Puerto Rico

5 out of 5
Stayed in San Juan, Puerto Rico for a few days. Rented a Villa with 4 bedrooms, explored the island and swam at the beach just 2 doors down from the Villa. Very friendly people and great Uber service getting around.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

4 out of 5
We went on Beach excursion at Megens Bay, the beach chairs were suppose to be included. The workers made us pay for them, later the Disney Excursion Guide got us our refund. Somebody needs to have that straighten out.

Castaway Cay (Disney Private Island)

5 out of 5
We All enjoyed everything on Castaway Cay very much, the food, snorkeling and swimming at the beach. Fun in the Sun.

Port Canaveral, Florida

3 out of 5
Very busy port, we didn't stay. Jumped on shuttle and straight to the airport.

Disembarkation

3 out of 5
Had breakfast and disembarked, after going through luggage it seems that we were rushed out of the building, got seperated from our party and had to wait and look for them outside.
