Good cruise, great service, no Castaway Cay by Minnesotavacati

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

For being one of Disney's older boats, I have no complaints about the ship, amenities or the room. The food and service were great. The weather was cool and rainy and the captain only made two attempts to dock at the private island. We were scheduled to be there from 8 AM to 5 PM. They made an attempt at 8 AM and 9 AM and then gave up and headed toward Miami. Obviously safety is key but they could have stayed around the island to see if things improved.

Disney cruise to Bahamas by meljosh

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

It was an overall good, not great experience.  We traveled with a group of 26 people and we all agreed our favorite part was Castaway Cay. It was disappointing that the day was cut short there and we had to board so early.  The day in Key West was not enjoyable to the kids, not to any of them. We paid $72 each ticket to visit Blue Lagoon and were bothered by the fact that once there, we had to pay an additional $15 to rent vests. Our toilet overflowed three times in our room. We were given a room that slept 3 people, not 4 and we were only credited $100 for the inconvenience and a bottle of wine (which was nice but thrown out at airport). We had to travel to the opposite side of the ship where there was only one drink station on the 9th floor and that was also the only area to grab snacks. There wasn't huge snack assortment either at night. Overall good time was had by all, but many of us felt frustrated with some of these things.

Amazing experience by Pluto1981

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

Best vacation we have ever taken.  The service was top notch.  The entertainment was excellent and the amount of activities to do was more than enough for both adults and kids.  The food was great and very abundant.  The characters were friendly and there were multiple times for the kids and adults to meet them and get there pictures taken or autographs.  It was a stress free environment.  We are excited about taking another cruise with Disney in the very near future.

First Disney Cruise by Butler

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

We enjoyed the cruise overall but was disappointed with the weather.  The visit to one of the ports had to be canceled due to the weather.  But we enjoyed seeing the Disney characters throughout the ship and the food was really good.

Great as usual! by cruisn

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

This was our second Disney Cruise and it did not disappoint. Great service and smooth sailing. Alaska was beautiful and God gave us great weather, the locals couldn't believe! This ship is smaller than the Dream, but it was very user friendly. The only drawback is the kids area is much smaller than the on the Dream, so my kiddos were a little disappointed after being spoiled on the Dream. Overall , outstanding cruise.

Perfect cruising by SophieGolden

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

Fantastic service, the staff are all pleasant and efficient, seem to be committed to making sure every passenger has a good experience.  Alaska's beautiful scenery and lots of wildlife make for great shore adventures.  There are lots of activities available, great food.  Would highly recommnd.

Disney Winder to Alaska by judiemathison

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

My grandchildren loved this cruise. The characters were available at various times and related well to them.  The activities on the ship were outstanding and geared to their age.  I do no feel that you need any shore excursions since they were happy to be on the ship.

I have been on 4 other cruise lines and felt that the food was not quite as good as several of the.  The rotation of dining  rooms was a plus since each dining room had its own character.

i probably will go on another Disney Cruise since the grandchildren would love to go again.

Disney is Wonder-ful on the high seas! by candicel

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

My college friends and I like to travel together, and this trip had us sailing the high seas to Alaska on board the Disney Wonder. It’s been about a couple of weeks since we left the ship, and frankly, we can’t wait to take another Disney cruise!

Embarkation: It was relatively organized and we got on board in less than an hour. You need to remember that Disney allows you to bring aboard 2 wine bottles or liquor in your CARRYON, but the airlines requires you to put the alcohol in your LUGGAGE. As long as you don't confuse the two, you will have a trip with no regrets (unlike me). Crying

The First Day: Our bags were delivered before we had to go to our muster station for the safety drill. We ran around the first few hours to sign up for the free prizes at the spa, free 90MB internet, etc. 

Tip: Download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app to your phone before you arrive on the ship, and activated it when you're on the ship. Even if you put your phone on Airplane Mode, this app can be used to see all the movie times, event times, menus for every restaurant, etc for each day. Use the calendar on the top right to change days. It will even give you disembarkation information (be sure to read the info before your 2nd to last day on the ship).

Tracey Arm Day: The ship will go as close to the glacier as possible so please remember to bundle up and go early so you can grab a good spot for viewing. They serve soup in bread bowls, warm chocolate chip cookies and hot chocolate and coffee up on Deck 10 so you don't have to miss a moment of the excitement of spotting wild animals and the beauty of nature. Character sightings of Minnie, Mickey, Donald and Goofy in their Alaskan outfits were available on Decks 9 and 10 as they wander through the crowd at random times in the morning. There were no character sightings scheduled on Deck 3 until all of the excitement of Tracey Arm is finished so you won't have to head back indoors unless you have to. They had random princess sightings wandering decks 3, 4, 5 in the afternoon as things were starting to wind down. The princesses that were available were: Rapunzel, Tatiana, Cinderella and Ariel. I ended up wandering around 4, 9 and 10. There's a different perspective from all of the decks. Deck 10 has the full 360 view but it's also the most packed. Deck 9 still had good views but it might be somewhat obstructed by the glass enclosures but that's what makes it slightly warmer. Deck 4 had good side views but you'll miss out the views from the forward and aft as those are usually blocked with ship machinery. 

Disembarkation: We had breakfast at 8am (2nd seating) and said the final goodbyes to our servers! We waited about an hour for our character and color to be called so we could stand in a line to disembark the ship. We went thru immigration and customs pretty quickly after that. However, the lines for the cabs were pretty long since we declined to split up our group and move into the faster line for 3 or less people.  

Tip: Ask Guest Services for items like free ear plugs, extension cords and ponchos (these are better quality than the dollar store variety and it comes with Mickey emblazoned on it!). Buy Disney Wonder/Alaska sailor hats, shirts, etc on the ship to be signed instead of bringing pillowcases. Noticed that sales items changed each day but the 2014 stuff was always on sale. You gotta admit that you were going to buy it anyway so you might as well get it signed by Mickey & the Gang.

Disney is the way to go with teens. by KTCraig

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

The Disney Cruise Line does a wonderful job of scheduling events so that you can choose any activity to participate throughout the day and you will have the opportunity to attend all of those activities! (if you are not too tired from all of yesterday's activities...and if you are. there are several places to relax also) The shows are awesome and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The food, well, lets put it this way...I gained 17 pounds on my trip which may not be a good game plan for everyone but I absolutely loved the food. Thank you to the chefs and the waiter staff. My children (13 and 15 years old) had more than enough activities to keep them busy all day and sometimes late into the night as they made many new friends from all over the world and are still in contact with many of their new friends today which I think is very cool!!! The only negative thing is the laundry room is small and the dryers take about twice as long as the wash machines. I would suggest to Disney to provide more dryers than wash machines or for you as a traveler to pick odd times to use the laundry service which I did the one late night and had no problems, but the last day early morning is not a good time to do laundry so plan accordingly when it comes to this.

The pager phones that are provided in the room is a great resource to be able to contact other members of your party and they are included with no additional charge in case you are concerned about communication issues with cell phone and internet plans.

Overall, it is a truly great experience (especially if you have eating fine cuisine listed as one of you hobbies) and if you have active teens they will love it!!! If you are considering, I would suggest that you do it because the memories created by you and the Disney Cruise Staff alone are worth the cost of the trip and the food...BONUS!!! Oh, I almost forgot to mention the fact that...

Alaska is a fantastic destination!!!

Awesome by joaniegallagher

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

This was by far the best cruise we have taken.  The ship was immaculate and everyone was very friendly and helpful.  Castaway Cay is a must see.....turquoise water with beautiful white sand beaches....a paradise!!  We had fun at the crab races and the barbeque was delicious.

more than expected by azcruiser

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

Having been on a numbe of cruises, this was my first Disney Cruise. While I had heard of positive marks on such cruises, a Disney Cruise is one that must be experienced. First, the ease at checkng in for departure is make simple and smooth (as was disembarment). There is SO much to do on board it was hard to just sit at the pool. There are three pools including an adult only pool. The Ports are easy to explore with getting off and on a simple effort. Then there is the food  EXCELLENT. This starts with being assigned a table by number whereupon the guests at the table and the servers stay together during the entire cruise while rotating from three great restaurants. Plus one can simply eat at the buffet or one of many snack areas. The entertainment is of high quality. I am one that thinks that every child (of all ages) must experience disneyland, now a disney cruise is a must.

Oldest ship --- not up to par with other ships by SharonmByer

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

I have cruised many times with other lines but first with Disney -- I wished I had researched Disney ships more before I booked the cruise

on Disney Wonder -the ship itself was a dissapointment -- then I found out why -- oldest ship due to be renovated soon -- the staff were very

nice though and the food adequate but not up to what I have experienced on other lines ---would not recommend this ship ---

Very Nice Cruise by puckettfamcruze

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

This was our first cruise, so we thought we'd do it in style with the most talked about, Disney Cruise.  It was very nice I must say, but I will say that the Wonder is in dire need of some updates.  The Wonder is one of the older ships, and to be honest it shows.  We were on the 2nd floor, mid-ship, which was a very good location for first time cruisers I might add.  One thing I must note is that our cabin had the smell of urine and just sort of a stale smell from the moment I walked in.  There were also lots of things on the walls that needed cleaning, but again, the Wonder is an old ship, and it is my understanding that she will be out for cleaning here in a few weeks. Disney's service came through as our hostess was on top of everything from the moment I mentioned the smell to her.  She did everything from mop, wipe, shampoo carpet, change linens and mattresses, etc.  She even gave us so many nice things for our inconvenience.  The size of our room was excellent.  We had the Deluxe inside stateroom with a large port hole window, and it really was nice to be able to look out and see some sunshine every morning.

 

My 8-year old daughter loved is so much she cried the day we had to get off!  She didn't really like to Oceeneers Lab on this ship, but did love the Club.  So much we had to drag her out most days.

 

The access to the characters was just awesome!  I mean you couldn't ask for anything more.  They were always walking around, or taking photos, and the lines were there, but not unbearable at all.  The cast members were so sweet and just awesome people anytime they saw the kids they came up to them, they were just awesome!

 

The only downside I had was that I didn't feel there was too much for me to do.  I'm in my mid-late 30's and my husband is in his mid-late 40s.  My mom who is in her late 50's tagged along as well.  The movies and shows were great, but it seemed something was missing.  I'm not sure what, but at times I was a little bored on the sea days.  None the less, I loved it and I'm looking forward to celebrating my birthday in 2014 on one of the ships.  Ohh my 20 year old was there as well and felt she always had something to do, as well as my 11 year old cousin who we could never find for dinner!  She loved, loved, loved the activities for her age and she loved her counselors.

 

All in all, Disney is truly a great family cruise vacation.

Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

Our family had a fantastic time on the cruise! This is our 2nd time aboard Disney and we absolutely love love it! We already have started planning for our 3rd trip! We are quite sad that they arent leaving out of Galveston anymore, and are hoping they will come back soon! The kids had an awesome time and still talk about how they want to go back. Lots of memories were made!

Smooth cruising by kauaipeg

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

The DisneyWonder and crew were top notch. We were going out with a hurricane in the Gulf. They by passed it and the weather was so smooth we thought we were on a pond. The food, entertainment, and staff were great. It was our second time on Disney and were very pleased. We look forward to making it to our Gold Status.

calm sea by katscruise

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

very good food, very good service, the room host always seemed to be there when we opened the door...I think she was majical, just like the cruise line.  If you don't care to have children crying when you are dinning, then a Disney Cruise may not be your cup of tea....fortuntanly, it was not the norm....most kids were having such a great time, that it really wasn't too big an issue....The Gulf was exceptionally calm on this cruise....very unusual...it was my boy friends first cruise, and he throughly enjoyed the experience...

 

I highly reccommend using Cruise.com for all of your cruise travel needs. they were always helpful, knowedgable, and always put my mind at ease.

Best Cruise Ever, best service! by verochino

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

I can not express it enough this was the best experience ever with my entire family! Most importantly the one that I continue saying that made the best ever of our cruise was the server Jose, assistant server Ajit and our stateroom hostess. Without the outstanding effort and support from these three people our cruise would not have half as enjoyable. Also of course the other half came from the rest of the crew who walked around the ship to make sure we were not in need of anything and the performers the energy that they had made all come together for all the family. We will defiantly do this again! And one last note for all parents…… at first I was a bit optimistic about leaving kids who are 10 and 11 wonder around the ship on their own but all the crew members made me feel safe letting my kids go to the different clubs and activities they had on board. My kids loved and enjoyed that freedom as well.
