Not up to expectations by bobbhed323

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

My expectations were not met on this cruise, the shows were excellent.

The food just was not good and other than our cabin steward and dining wait staff who were excellent. the rest of the crew from the people in cabanas and the bartenders were rude, even the officers were not very friendly, I have cruised disney before but this cruise was nothing like previous experience. I would no take this cruise again

Disney Cruise Feb 2017 by howset7

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

I was a little disappointed that the boat did not have the glitz and glamour.  I was also disappointed by the size of the pool area for the children.  One small pool for the children which were overcrowded and I saw at least five nosebleeds while I was there.  My daughter was afraid to go in when she saw the children slip and fall in the pool (and the blood).  I would suggest a variety of kid friendly menu options during dinner time.  The options were too fancy for her taste (I had to go on deck or order room service (for a pizza or wrap).

We loved the island of Castaway Cay and having lunch there.  Everyone on board was so kind and helpful.  The Disney Wonder was so clean and beautiful also.  Loved the restaurants!  The shows were amazing!

I would recommend this cruise to anyone.

Room for improvement by 25thmarines

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

Steps should be taken for guests that have carriages (presumably your target market).  One elevator should be designated as carriage/handicap only.  Maybe if we departed from a different port the general public would have the curiosity or common sense to let those carriage guests on the elevator.  Also posting a sign suggesting that capable people (perhaps overweight but physically capable) to try the stairs when they only need to travel one or two decks.  Maybe place candies or chocolates halfway up each stairwell as an incentive to take the stairs.   

 

Another suggestion regarding the language barrier (even through we departed from a US Territory where English is the official language); would be to have those guests needing translation during the loud announcements to muster in a specific location or to have staff in several areas throughout the vessel translating. 

 

Other than that, the kids loved seeing Mickey.

Terrific experience with the family. by davidblackmon

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

We took our daughter, her husband, and their 6 and 3 year-old daughters on this cruise in early January, and it was a wonderful experience for every one of us.  Disney does a great job of making things fun for people of all ages.  We will definitely be coming back in few years for another cruise.

Awesome Memories by FirstimeDisney

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

Loved the restaurants for dinner, loved Disney's private island. There was always stuff to do, and really not just stuff but enjoyable things at all times. We couldn't do it all, in fact there were many parts of the ship we didn't get to just because of time. Met great people and made friends. Only real negatives were weather related and cant be controlled by disney. Some not as positive things were the breakfast and lunch were not the best quality and sometimes felt like I was eating cardboard, or cardboard mush but you learn fast whats good and whats not. Like everything else with Disney, merchandise and other products or services comes at a premium price but it is worth it.

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Caribbean - Western

This was a great fun, So many things to do for all. Hard to choose what to do - Characters, shows and premieres. Kids had a blast and we did not know how the 7 nights went by.

Disney Wonder with a toddler by ToddlerMom

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Caribbean - Western

We took our two year old on this cruise for his birthday, he loves Disney Junior especially Mickey Mouse! We did character meet and greets, breakfast with a Disney Junior, participated in several crafts, visited the lab and club during open house and played in the splash pad. We watched a lot of movies on the outdoor screen, that was really fun!!

 

Overall, we truly enjoyed the cruise. The ports were awesome and probably our favorite part of the vacation. Almost every employee we encountered seemed to truly enjoy their job and were friendly.We took our cruise in December and I loved that the boat was decorated for Christmas and that there were Christmas activities like Gingerbread house building. 

 

I was was slightly disappointed with the lack of space/activities for my son's age  group. The splash pad is small and enclosed, the crafts for his age group is limited and I would HIGHLY suggest a toddler room with toys available during everyday of the cruise. We only used the nursery once for two hours, we spent a lot of time with our son and it would have been nice to have more activities and crafts available.

Entertainment great, too many lines by kenamayfieldsos

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

Disney Wonder has delicious food, fantastic entertainment and friendly staff. There are just two incidents that kept me from reviewing the trip higher. One is that there was a lot of waiting. At certain times there were long lines at breakfast lasting about 20 minutes or so. For popular activities, we waited in many lines. For our excursions, two out of three times, we waited in lines more than an hour late for our excursion to depart. Families do not like lines, so that could be improved upon.  I also want to make a note of how my son's retractable light saber was taken from us at the port as a prohibited item and my stateroom was taken, yet three days later, I see other kids have the exact same item and said they bought it on the ship. So basically, I started the cruise with a crying child whose toy should not have been taken at all. If an item is prohibited it should not be sold by Disney on board.

I would return on this cruise some time in the future.

Panama Canal trip by corrigandiana

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

we did enjoy going on the Disney Panama Canal trip.  I will say I was worried since it was a Disney cruise but ended up not very many children on the cruise after all. They are bad about pushing future cruises or their vacation club along with souvenirs such as pictures.  you could not decide what size picture you wanted.  All were 8x10 and cost $22 each.

My first experience with Disney Cruise by genniefn

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

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 drydocking...so 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.

Disney Cruise with grandkids by terrle1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

The Grandkids, LOVED the cruise.  They enjoyed the fun things to do, the food and seeing Alaska.

The Grandparents LOVED the cruise also.  It was great to know the kids were safe and having fun.  They went above and beyond to keep them safe in the restaurants as they both have severe food allergies.

Disney makes a point of making sure their employees are all friendly and helpful to all the guests.  I did not encounter even one staff member that wasn't outgoing, friendly and helpful.  The cruise is extremely efficient in getting people on and off in ports.  No long lines - ever.

My only complaint was (that since it is very expensive and I choose to take an inside cabin) the noise was bothersome when trying to sleep.  I think it was due to the water pipes or other ship mechanisms working near our room.

Disney Wonder Alaska-June 2016 by carynrivera

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Let me start out by saying the staff was amazing, they kept everything nice and clean, and always greeted you with a smile no matter where you were.  The ship itself was a good size, even though it carries so many passengers, there were times you could still find an isolated location to just admire the beauty outdoor as we sailed.  The food was great in the evenings, it helped that our servers were well knowledgeable in regards to what to recommend.  They never steered me wrong.  I did notice that the majority of cruises were not aware of dress codes, for formal nights or semi-formal nights.  That might be something that needs to be told to cruises when booking.  I only found out because I have had that happen to me in a past cruise, and it does make you feel uncomfortable when dinning on those days.  As for the activities, at first I was a little concerned since my children are in their teens, I wasn't sure if they would find things to do.  But my 13 year old had a great time at the Edge and made new friend who he is still in contact with.  As for my 16 year old, he was not that interested in the activities at the Vibe (all these are assigned clubs by age).  Although I do have to say they did have some great shows that we were all able to see as a family.  I would have preferred to have more activities that would let both boys interact with the family, kind of like a middle tier for kids 12 and up.  The activities were more at a level for little kids 10 and under with their family members.  That didn't stop us from participating and having fun, it's Disney after all.  Overall it was a great experience with fantastic weather.

Disney Cruise-Alaska 2016 by MickeyWhitehurs

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

The staff was very friendly and very helpful. The adult activities were really good. There was a good variety of foods and buffet. The served dinner at night was maybe a bit to fancy, and you did not always know exactly what you were ordering.  It was very clean and there were people always cleaning.  Rooms were nice and well kept. We did not have any young children, so never learned much about the activities for them.

A "WONDER"ful Alaskan Cruise on the Disney Wonder by Cruiser295

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Alaska's majestic mountains, glaciers, and  waterfalls were spectacular. The untamed wilderness provides an opportunity to see nature at its best...whales, sea lions, seals, eagles, etc. The Disney Wonder provided EVERYTHING that was needed but was exemplary in hospitality and service. The Disney clubs were a hit with our children from ages 3-21 as well as the Disney characters. With our large group (29), there were problems with our Disney cards. The photography shop onboard was disappointing. We had trouble accessing our photos even though photos were selected and placed in our carts.

Family fun in a beautiful place! by deniselsnider

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

The staff was truly excellent. Very friendly and always helpful. The ship was super clean and lots of activities on board. Being in Alaska you can't take advantage of the pools on ship but there are other activities and movies being played constantly all day. We had our 15 month old with us. He went to the nursery throughout the week but it was hard at night to make it to all the shows because he needed to be in bed. I think the ideal age to bring kids would start around 3 years old where they can be part of the kids club. All in all wonderful family experience!
